Hey all so im having LOADS of trouble finding a decent looking con-friendly sword and sheath set:miffed:. I have a leather piece that will do nicely as a way to secure two swords across my back Xstyle, but although iv looked for hours i cant find anything that would work. Also, does anyone have a decent site they could recommend for some realistic looking toy guns? :)
P.S. I tried these.... http://www.amazon.com/Wrapped-Wakizashi-Costume-Cosplay-Katana/dp/B002WQELRS
... but they are garbage.
Thanks in advance!

I'll have to dig around for the URL but you can find fairly inexpensive wooden boken with saya(swords with sheaths) that you can then paint so they'll look real but be con friendly. As for guns, it'll really depend on where you are as to what requirements you have to meet....

The requirements to my knowledge are... No moving parts and that there must be an orange tip at the end of the gun.

Then have you looked into airsoft guns? you can find fairly inexpensive ones on ebay and then you can remove the triggers so you get the 'no moving parts' rule down. And apparently I can't find my original link to the sword stuff, but amazon has them (http://www.amazon.com/Red-Oak-Bokken-Wood-Scabbard/dp/B004IJWTUI).

Hello...i got my airsoft gun for my deadpool costume from the 99 cent store...i covered the orange tip with black tape for pictures...for my swords i just extended the straps of the swords inside the sheaths and cross wrapped it around my body so that they would form an "x" on my back... U can get cheap nice gun toys at the dollar stores...or even get the dollar stores ones and spruce them up a bit...
