Packing, Packing, Packing!

Have all of you Death Eaters out there started packing yet?  Here are just a few packing tips to help you along the way.

#1 - Don't pack fresh meat or other perishable food items in your checked luggage.  Sure, you might have a nice cooling charm
placed on it, but airlines lose luggage, and meat spoils.  Plus, Orlando has plenty food, I promise you!  Apparently Greyback didn't get the memo.

#2 - Don't over-pack.  Over-packing results in overweight fees from airlines, cluttered hotel rooms, and lost personal items.  While I know you may think you need that giant plastic carrot or that lampshade (especially the lampshade, I mean, you never know when you might come across a lamp that needs some shade, especially in sunny Florida), you probably won't in the end, and the space is just wasted.

#3 - I've said it before and I'll say it again - pack plenty of clean underpants.  The Dark Lord does not appreciate dirty pants.

#4 - Bring protection.  Sunscreen is VITAL in Florida, and make sure it's a brand you trust.  As if you need anymore warning, a faulty bottle of sunscreen and two hours in the Florida sun resulted in this sunburn on my legs a few years ago (don't click if you're squeamish-seriously icky sunburn pics).  Greyback sets a good example here.  Looks like he's got protection for, er, almost any occasion.  Wow.  Go Greyback!

Now that you've (hopefully) had a few laughs - please post some of your own packing advice and/or pictures!

ROTFLMAO!!!!!!!! You guys rock.

Tips... Ziplock baggies are your friend.

Bring a carry one that has ONE complete costume and your camera and phone and charger. Also some undies and socks...jist in case your luggage gets lost.

have your TSA approve 2 quart bag with a travel toothpaste and deoderant at a minimum. Put your comb/brush in your carry on. Ditto with contact lenses, medications, glasses.

Wear your heaviest shoes on the plane.

Take your cloak on the carryon. Fold the cloak in thirds and roll your mask in the cloak, this way it is padded and it wont break.

If you are over limit, take any clothing and layer/WEAR it on the bloody plane.

Do not over pack. You need half of what you think you will need. You can wear socks for two days, just air them out at night. You can wear bras for two days... You can hand wash these in the sink.

Leave some space for goodies you may aquire at con.
