Wondering two things!
Would I be recognised if I went as Sandstorm Katarina? There is a lot of work to be done on her original skin, and I have 2 cons the weeks before. I wouldn't have time to do much to her.
Second, I am not sure if I'm comfortable taking 'fake' weapons across the boarder (from Canada), what would be a way I could maybe fake having her swords, or could I just try to go without them? Would people be upset? XP;
League of Legends is a pretty popular game, so I would imagine the costume would be recognized at PAX, especially if you're hanging out with other LoL cosplayers.
If you're concerned about the weapons drawing unwanted attention, I'd recommend constructing them so that they can be disassembled for transport. Once you're over the border, you can reassemble them.
