I guess riding Amtrak, your costumes are not all that much of an issue, but on a plane?
And getting them back in one piece ready to display?

Still, to get back on track, the costumes generally don't have a problem in ether Amtrak or the airlines... except for the head, with is rather critical. I've seen folk bring them on as seat warmers because they're that concerned over breaking it. This does result in funny photos being pushed out by airline PR teams, though... something you don't see on Amtrak.
Even then... well... it makes me wonder if we need a mitigation tax along routes that have high NIMBY/NAMR objectors, because the only option is diesel (I don't see battery being any good for another few decades).
