  • For those flying this Halloween, the TSA has some important advice. Here are some key points:
  • Liquids and weapon-like items: Fake blood, potions, or any similar items must each be 3.4 ounces or less and packed in a quart-sized plastic bag if you're carrying them through security. Larger quantities should go in your checked bag.
  • Drinks: Pumpkin spice lattes or other beverages must also adhere to the 3.4-ounce rule for carry-ons. Pumpkins and candy, however, are allowed through security.
  • Costume props: Items like those shown on your screen should be packed in checked baggage. Explosive replicas, such as bombs or grenades, are strictly prohibited.
  • Costumes: While the TSA doesn't mind if you dress up, masks and capes should be put on after passing through security. Painted faces are not allowed due to the identification process.
If you're uncertain about how to pack an item, you can contact the TSA directly or send a question by texting “Travel” to AskTSA (275-872).
