    So im planning on entering a life size replica of a gun from one of my favorite video games into this art contest, however, my big plan of making this was to have it being a working model so i decided to make it from a giant nerf gun, i have recently brought it to another convention in spokane and they required that all of the internals (the parts that make it shoot) to be removed, now im perfectly fine with doing that and it was by far the most liked prop at the convention but the lack of internals took away from the purpose slightly since it also affected the cosmetics of the gun, i have no intention of bringing batteries or ammo to this contest if you will allow the internals of the gun but i will understand if you would prefer to have them removed for safety reasons

      This is only a Nerf gun, correct? And it is being submitted to the art contest. All 3D art contest items will be securely locked in cabinets for display, so the working nature of the Nerf gun shouldn’t cause a problem. When you submit your piece for the contest, make sure you talk with the lead event organizer, Laura. To make sure she is at the library when you drop your art off, give her a call at (208)769-2315 ext. 469.
