I have commitments on Saturday, but I'm thinking of going Sunday. I have the uniform (flight suit and patch), but that's about it for me. My 5 year old son has the pack I made, electronics kits included, trap, goggles and PKE meter. All (but the suite and patch) made by me. None of them are "movie authentic". I love the idea of GB related equipment that created with "the spirit of" the movie props, but take a slightly different form.
[begin soapbox speech]
I like the idea of GB fans groups essentially being a franchise of the original NY Ghostbusters. As such, each franchise might take some leeway on equipment creation in the hopes to improve efficiencies, etc. I see the GB equipment as an evolving science. If anyone has played the (relatively) recent GB game, you know the pack has been significantly added to. Why can't we make modifications and improvements? Even better if you can come up with the sudo-science lingo to explain your modified equipment.
That being said, I also have the Matty Neutrona wand but no pack. I was thinking of trying to cobble something together in time for the Con. I'm not sure that will happen now. If I do manage to create something, I would be very simplistic and probably pretty crappy looking. I dunno... Often I see other's "crappy" creations and think they're quite clever. Who knows. Maybe. Regardless, it would great to see other GB fans there.
