I was considering (if I have the time and such) of trying to cosplay as Ari from Okage:Shadow King http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v99/robochar/2317-okage-shadow-king-1-ivfzt.jpg (The kid up front basically)
I would really like to make a Stan to loom behind me; sort of like in the picture. I know the rules say nothing sticking out more than 6 inches off your body which I understand and can certainly adhere to. What I was wondering is, does that include straight up? I would like if I could have it about a foot at least above if possible. I would have it to where I can remove it if I need to like sit in a panel or whatever, but when I'm walking around normally would like him to be attached to my back. I am more than willing to work with the rules but just want to know if that counts as something sticking off your person or as a prop ect. Thank you!
