Just wanting to get to grips on the situation of travelling with the costume. I have travelled as far as London from Bath (2 hour train-ride + lots of tubes around the city). Me and friend are really keen to go in costume cause we know that whilst we're there if we don't have our costumes we'll only be thinking about having them!
I'm Boba Fett and he's a Sand-trooper. I have my costume in a suitcase, but that is a soft-fabric case, I'm looking to buy a solid shelled suitcase to fit the costume in to travel in the near year. Just asking how to travel from the UK to Germany with our costumes SAFELY. :P
My thoughts so far are:
- Fly & train : problems will be safety of costume in the hold (unless I can work out getting a large enough hard-shelled case), but it is the cheapest way to travel there.
- train : problems will be that I'll have to carry it and have it on or near me at all times, plus it'll cost a LOT more.
- drive : neither of us have a car so we'll have to work out renting a car and I'll have to get used to driving again.
- Other travellers on TDH : Wondering if anyone on here is travelling for the convention that is driving?
