Hey guys, with the holiday (read "convention") season coming up, I'm planning on visiting some Friends in San Diego at the end of July... purely uncoincidentally, my trip coincides, almost exactly, with the dates of San Diego ComiCon.
Now, I have had lots of people try to discourage me from doing what I'm about to say: I'm going to take Jango with me, and troop alongside my SoCal and Old Line Garrison Buddies. Something I've been longing to do since I first conceptualised my project.
Now I'm sure some of you have traveled overseas with your costumes, and I'm begging, nay pleading for some advice on travelling with a costume. I'm fairly confident I can fit it into a brand new 38 x 20 x 20 travelling chest, and still have some room for padding. However, my real question I suppose is with airport/airline ettiquette. Obviously I'm carrying some fairly dubious looking stuff, including two plastic blasters, a resin jet pack rocket, and two wired up gauntlets.
Will I have to empty the chest at Airport security, or declare at customs, or what? I'd like to know exactly what I have to do, well in advance, so that I can forsee any problems or time delays.
