Lightbulb Are these ok to bring for a cosplay?

Hi!!!! I need some info on something before I make the cosplay.
Are jumping stilts ok to bring? I would only use them outside and ONLY for walking. The reason being is that I want to cosplay Dark Woods Circus Haku (vocaloid pv), and the character is "ten feet tall"

That would come close to not a good idea.

I'm not super tall, but at 10 feet tall at a convention that takes place primarily in the underground level of one hotel, you would have some difficulty walking a straight line as it's pretty cozy inside and a level of crowding is common.

I can't say with authority not to do it, but I wouldn't recommend it.

xD I'm about 5'5 and these would give me about another foot, so 6'5 would be the hight, I would take them off when inside, I just needed to know if wearing them outside would be ok.

You can try to bring it to Con Ops to see if they can let you use it, but there's no promises.
The main reason is if it's a Safety Hazard.
Also, not everyone in the LAX Marriott is there for ALA, there are civilians/Flight Staff there too.

If you still plan on bringing them, be careful by the pool. We don't want you to slip.

As much as I think that'd be extremely cool, I don't think you should. Like the others said, it can be a safety hazard. ESPECIALLY outside at the pool deck. The crowds out there are extremely huge and the floor could be wet cause some people like to go in the pool and hot tub. And, with those stilts, you might not be able to spot some of the not-so-tall people so I don't think you should risk it.
