How do you travel with giant costumes/props?

Next year, I plan to go to Anime Matsuri in Texas. It's my first con outside of California, which means I'll be taking a plane to get there. Now I have a prop that's HUGE, probably 36 inches high. I rarely travel, so I was wondering how everyone manages to travel with all their cosplay supplies? Airports have certain rules and regulations about luggage. Especially the big stuff like props, armour, etc. If you're going to a con that's out of state or country, how do you bring your stuff with you? And how do you pack them safely and securely? Same can apply if you go to a local con.

This is a reference for the prop. If all else fails I can try to remake a smaller version.
