I can`t remember if I have asked this on here before, I don`t think I have so please bear with me.
As my costume nears completion, The wife and I will be traveling to Las Vegas from Canada with some friends for Halloween.
Now I have a few questions, primarily aimed at international travelers that have transported their costume internationally this includes blasters and side arms. Did you encounter any issues with transport or at border security? How did you package your costume in order to transport it? Should I bring any kind of documentation with me in order to remove any possible doubt that the costume is just that, a costume.
Next would be a question for anyone that has been to Vegas with their Fett, did you have any issues entering into any of the casinos or restaurants with your blasters etc?
While researching this on other cosplay type forums, most people that travel cross border and internationally tend to pack their costume with reference pictures and then label the container the costume is packaged in as theatrical costume and props. Any thoughts or personal experiences with this?
Thanks for any info you may be able to share with me on this subject.
