transporting props?

I have homestuck horns but am nervous they will get broken. How do you transport props?

If you fear that they will get broken use bubble wrap foil. I brought a role at my local post office to protect my staff from damage.

...around the horns. Then a little extra for cushioning between the horns and whatever else is in the suitcase, like clothes. Same as you'd wrap up anything else delicate, really.

Yes, anything soft and cushion-like will work. You can use towels, clothes or even tons of newspaper. The usual ways people transport dishes and other breakable stuff when they move out.

Actually, the bubble wrap gives me an idea for my Summoner's Staff emblem when I go to my next convention next year. Thanks

Take small towels, or small pieces of fabric, carefully wrap it around the horns, then take news paper and wrap it over fabric generously, and if they're small enough, try putting them in a shoe box, or something similar to keep them from moving around too much, if there is any extra space in the shoe box, then fill it up with small towels, pieces of fabric and left over news paper.
This is how I transport my props.

Just pack it how you would pack anything delicate. Lots of soft things around it, don't put anything heavy on top of it, and be careful when moving it.

This is going a bit off the original topic, but a rifle case is useful for transporting props that are too long to fit in a standard size suitcase.

You could keep them separated from everything else, like in a bag or something.
