[quote="Sage"]So if I come to this years burn I really want to go in my full samurai garb that I have. Of course I would love to include my whole accompaniment of katana and wakasashi with this but then I think about the legal issues here. Like I know for a fact that guns are outlawed and that is perfectly understandable. Now I have seen tons of photos of the burns past and I have seen a few pics with guys walking with what appear to be swords belted on but I don't know if they were real or "peace tied" or whatever.


Come in full Samurai garb!!! That is what my crew call - SKLANG! I'll start at topic on it and large beasts might fly. Playa knights!
Sklang!

Is your name pronounced He-mur? And if so, how was that boat ride with Thor?

Just got a crash course in Norse gods.....

Edzz, the best sword is the one you trained to use . . .

Hopefully this is practice sparring or boffer combat with the proper protective gear? Live steel isn't to be taken lightly.

In my opinion, if your good at swinging, and returning a swing: the Claymore, or the German Flamberge.

Nope.

Identifying Hat and shirt.
Laminate.
Kilt. (or pants, or skirt, or mumu, or something covering yer bits for modesty's sake).
Radio, or partner with radio.
Pencil and paper.
Water, strongly suggested.

As far as I recall, other equipment is optional.
What goes around, comes around.

I'm more familiar with german pronunciation. Ah well. Watched some show about the Norse god Thor. Went on a boat ride with some dude named Hemur? Got in a fight with a big snake, and was pissed off when the snake ran away. Or slithered... not really sure if that applies to huge snakes but...

not sure which movie, but, the "snake" may have been "Jormungand".......

"Hemur", probably "Hymir", IIRC, one of the frost giants.

I was pressing buttons at the time, so probably missed key names. Interesting,how resistant Norse culture is, towards christianity. I admire it.

yeah, the crusaders had to take them by falsehood, since, they couldn't take them by sword.........for "conversion".

I was in Estonia at one time. They claim to be the last to fall to Christianity, and, are still quite Pagan.......much of that region is.

There are a lot of things that can be used as weapons and considered dangerous. As long as you are not threatening with it, you should be fine.


Nope, not true. Camp mate is a fight choreographer and had his "costume" piece confiscated. He was able to pick it up on the way out. No edge but a 5+ foot long claymore just looked too intimidating for the LEO's to let him wear it, although it was in a scabbard on his back and not unsheathed at any time.

Yep. God bless Shambala and all that. But ask those who have had experience with this: My camp-mate, Wolfe and Mojojita's.

It's ridiculous that a BLM property filled with fire-swallowers is less "with it" than you average scifi con, but that's the hand we're dealt with Yuji-san. Shoganai ne.

Oh great. I get it now. How about the Heavy-Saber?!
I'm sure the big muscled man would carry that for you.
lol.
