Acceptable Trophies?
« on: Sep 18, 2011, 04:56 PM »
I was curious other then wookie braids what are some acceptable trophies?
Also would "fingers" or "finger bones" be acceptable? On another thread I thought some one was using teeth.

Claws, fangs, bones, braids, broken weapons.  If you want to go all barbaric, body parts that still have flesh on them.

Could even have one of your kits weapons be a trophy...wookie bowcaster or the like.

I've seen people do all of the stuff I listed on kits.  I would say about anything goes for a trophy, short of doing something like the very non-family friendly trophy from the movie Your Higness...that would surely not fly.

I was thinking maybe a couple finger bones a zabbrak horn or 2. I'm thinking of hanging them from a wookie braid. Nothing gruesome just bone teeth & such.

i am making the wife a bone claw from "rightstuff" foam with a epoxy coating then bondo.
i sanded it a bit but left all kinds of ridges and crevisis on it .
later i plan to paint it off white with a brown wash then poly it
also on hte side that wouls have been attached to a fingure i made it jagged as if it was ripped out of the fingure.
might even paint some dried blood there and glue some sort of a craft fur to it
it is about 2 inched around 4 inches long

Tandy Leather sells some pretty nice resin claws, varying in size from about an inch up to great big 4 inch bear claws.  Could make some pretty nice trophies.

I was talking to someone about padawan braid trophies the other day. Y'know, with a bit of scalp attached still, and the braid hanging down from it. I love the idea, but part of me balks at offending someone while I'm in costume.

My hubby keeps reminding me "family friendly". I guess if I'm going to a con kids could be seeing a lot worse on tv. And if I thought my kids might be offended I wouldn't take them. If I were going to to a charity or family event I'd consider taking gorey trophies off. But seriously how many wounds were in star wars?!? But this just my opinion.  Everyone has one.

I would rather see gorey trophies at a con than some 300 pound gorilla of a guy dressed as Sailor Moon. 

I would think you would be fine with pretty much anything at a con (have you seen some costumes people wear at cons?), and most things should be fine for other events.  I would just stay away from trophies like the ones in Your Highness...dripping severed ogre heads and severed minotaur genitalia might be a bit much for charity events  :)

Basically you can use anything that wouldn't be classed as Gore. So severed heads bones with flesh and blood is a NO ! . we can't have anything that can offend the public or LucasFilm. Think family friendly guys.  ;)
