Cosplayers who travel have their fair share of horror stories. Expensive props, one of a kind builds, and hours upon hours of time spent on costumes are totally normal. But what about when the WORST happens, and a piece of the costume gets lost? Or, even more common- a TSA agent doesn’t recognize a prop vs. contraband?
The latter happened to well-known cosplay personalty Riki Lecotey, aka R1ddle. Among several of her Marvel cosplays is a beautiful Doctor Strange.
Layers of highly detailed blue fabric for the robe, hand-tooled leather for the belt, and some pretty amazing sling rings. So amazing in fact that apparently some CATSA (Canada’s TSA) agent thought they were brass knuckles.
Oh this breaks our heart!
