realistic props/weapons

Happy Holidays one and all!


Phoenix’s annual FGoTM is just around the corner. We are SUPER EXCITED to see as many of you who can make it out to see us.
Details on the event can be found Here:  http://fgotm.dmh-mes.com/

On that note – we all love our prop accessories, and many of us spend a great deal of time and money on them.  However, realistic prop weapons can be problematic for both the hosting location, and some attendees. 

Our FGoTM has *not* requested permission to use the prop weapons policy for conventions for MES.  So before you pack that awesome prop weapon to bring to the game – drop me a note first, and we can look it over together to determine if it will be permitted in the game space.

General rule – if a police officer, in a dark alley, might mistake your prop for being real … do not bring it into the game space for our event.


Now, we DO have an AMAZING photographer who will be be set up to do portraits for folks. If you would like to pose for photos with your prop weapons in the OOC room, you are more than welcome to do so.


If anyone has questions – feel feel to drop me a note and I will be happy to chat with you about this.


Looking forward to a GREAT EVENT.



Ever Forward,
Charmain

We welcome you to the party after the end.

Your host,
Kaius Drescher

Moulin Rouge Costuming Ideas

 

 

 

Hello folks!

In the spirit of our previous email of theme for the FGotM, I’ve gathered some information for folks for the second night of our event – Moulin Rouge, The Rhythm of the Night!

The theme is based off a rather famous Cabaret – please note some of the links, while not explicit, may not constitute as safe for work!

Timeframe: 1889 – 1900

Background: It was the Gilded Age of the Second Industrial Revolution. Electric lighting was introduced commercially, as were gasoline powered cars and phonographs. The Eiffel Tower had recently been completed and was an attraction to see! Jack the Ripper stalked London.

The Moulin Rouge is best known as the birthplace of the modern form of the can-can dance. Originally introduced as a seductive dance by the courtesans who operated from the site, the can-can dance revue evolved into a form of entertainment of its own and led to the introduction of cabarets across Europe. Today, the Moulin Rouge is a tourist attraction, offering musical dance entertainment for visitors from around the world. The club’s decor still contains much of the romance of fin de siècle France.

Moulin Rouge website:

Moulin Rouge Wikipedia:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Moulin_Rouge

The Can-Can Dance:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Can-can

Feel: What I am looking to evoke is the atmosphere and the feeling from the more modern movie, Moulin Rouge! If you’ve not seen the movie, I whole-heartedly suggest watching it. The music and atmosphere is fantastic. 🙂

Wikipedia: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Moulin_Rouge!
IMDB Page: https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0203009/

Other Movie Inspiration:
Can-Can (1960): https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0053690/
Cabaret (1972) : https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0068327/

Costuming Ideas:
The theme is centered around a famous Cabaret. Feel free to costume to this theme, but remember our Membership Handbook and that the hotel is a public space.
