So I've been collecting stuff forever toward my aliens colonial marine setup, and some of the best stuff I have, i know I will never ever be able to take out of my house. In particular my firing (airsoft), metal pulse rifle and the "night raider" knife.
Despite my best efforts/intentions, no convention, bar, or public halloween party is going to let me in the door with this stuff! Knowing this, I am working on alternate props at the same time as the good stuff. Which brings me to the point of the thread:
-Who has some cool "backup/alternate" accesories? (the ones you use when you know the 'good stuff' would be frowned upon).
-Anyone have a story of 'wish they had'/vs/'glad they didnt' go the 'safe' route and comprimise with their accesories/weapons?
