Oh lordy. There's got to be some way you can make or find that out of plastic. I know the glass one seems easier, but I doubt it's really worth the danger.
It could fall down and smash in front of you, hurting yourself OR someone else.
..You can bump into something hard, slip, fall, whatever, and have it smach... hurting yourself or someone else as well.

Are you taking this to a convention, because I'm wondering if they'll even allow it. It's a real safety issue.

Ive looked everywhere for plastic but they are too short but believe me i hate the idea of glass but this is what it looks like http://i7.photobucket.com/albums/y28...0731020755.jpg

actually couldn't i use this http://www.amazon.com/Display-Filled...s=plastic+dome and buy plastic sheets and fold them around to fit the top of dome inside?
