I'm certainly hoping to be back for 2014. Fanime's close enough to be a driving con for me, and of those in-state it's one of my favourites, so yeah.
(I've done historical reenactment for years, and between myself and a few friends in the area have quite a collection of weapons -- we used to run with a live-steel guild -- so why not go for more authentic? And it should be a good de-stress to boot. I just wish we still had a family dog; I'd totally have given him the lot for a chew toy for a while too. Need to do more damage to the clothes too, but that'll involve power tools instead of weapons, so far less authentic. XD)
