Agreed. A lot of planning and knowing the restrictions of the conventions goes into the design of the props from the get go as far back as a year.
I have huge wings that span wide enough to block convention halls; but knowing the rules, I've engineered the wings to collapse within a 6" space from my body. Using this, I've been able to walk through some of the busiest dealer halls like Anime Expo which gets 45k+ attendants annually. Also, a lot of technique goes into walking while traversing through the halls and dealer halls such as walking behind groups of people who are practically locked in arms.
