"DC Bombshells" Series Part II —
By Ant Lucia
I personally hate trains and buses since they’re so slow and require taking more days off school/work for traveling. Whenever I’ve gone to cons outside the Midwest, I always fly! And I love flying alone, being in airports is so much fun. Don’t be nervous, just think of it as an adventure!
I prefer Southwest Airlines because they allow two checked bags free of charge, and they’re prices are usually much lower, too. They also run sales frequently, so if you know your convention date ahead of time, snag the flight tickets while they’re on sale!
CosplayTutorial has a fantastic list of what to pack for conventions that should help you out. And here’s a few other tips:
- Remember to follow TSA regulations when it comes to makeup and wig products.
- If you have anything fragile like props or styled wigs, I recommend keeping it in a hard-shell carry-on bag to prevent it from being damaged. Checked suitcases tend to get tossed around a bit, so keep anything breakable with you if at all possible.
- I always bring at least one full cosplay and change of clothes with me in my carry-on, just in the tremendously awful (but fortunately unlikely) event that my luggage is delayed. That way I still have something to wear at the con in case my other costumes don’t make it right away.
- Figure out your ground transportation ahead of time. How are you getting from the airport to the con center or hotel? Is there a shuttle, a bus, public transit? Will there be taxis available? Can a friend or family member pick you up? How are you getting back to the airport after the con? Plan ahead so you’re not panicking or stranded when you land.
If anyone else has any more tips to add, please feel free to share them!
