Hi all. I have a question regarding helmets. I've done a cosplay of Soul Calibur 2 Nightmare for a couple years now, and while I don't think there have been any issues, I wanted to make sure this year so there's no risk of unpleasantness.
On the helmet, there are two upward turned narrow bat wing like "ears". I'm not sure off hand (on lunch break at work) if they extend more than six inches or not. Usually I just carry the helmet with me instead of wearing it unless someone wants a picture/posing for photos (would rather avoid heatstroke).
My question is, if they're over six inches, will I have to trim/replace them, or since I carry it mostly instead of wear it, does that make it a prop instead?
Or are these simply rules for props and I'm just stressing out over nothing?
