My brother and I did the same thing with our first prop. It was a lifesize iron maiden/coffin and we relied almost entirely on hot glue (oh, so young and naive...). We left in the car in a Sacramento summer. The pieces pretty much just slid off when we took it out. Haha, lesson learned.
More recently, my utter lack of grace resulted in me dropping a weapon prop commissioned by a friend. It was already pretty fragile, but somehow I only dented part and cracked another. I was able to finish it in the hotel room at the con and remained paranoid until I could return it to its owner.
