I'll be taking a flight soon for a Blockbuster LARP, and was wondering what would be the best means to get my latex weapon over there.

Is it possible to just check it, even if it doesn't fit inside a suitcase? Maybe wrap it in bubble wrap and put it inside a bag/box? Thoughts?

It may be too realistic looking (save for the foam/latex blade) to bring in the cabin as a carry-on.

I would appreciate advice based on experience!

I have not traveled with a LARP weapon before, but I know you can travel with firearms in your checked baggage. You just have to declare it with the airline and airport security so they are aware of it.

I dont know what country you live in, but here is a link to the USA's TSA website about traveling with weapons: Transporting Firearms & Weapons.

Funny side note: you never have to worry about losing your checked bag if you are transporting dangerous items like weapons in them. TSA keeps a VERY close eye on those bags.
