I believe I dropped about $110 on both sets of Hellsing Ultimate I-IV and V-VIII at Youmacon 2012. I then spent an extra $55 on Panty & Stocking With Garterbelt. Totally freaking worth it,

it all depends. last year at NYCC i spent $200 on one thing (an anime series). This year at Otakon i spent like $15 on buttons/pins i probably wont use and a small portal figure.
I don't buy food at conventions, i pack as much food and snacks as i can.

Uh, too much really.

Including hotelcosts, food, drinks, travel expenses and what I spend in a dealer room between €250 and €1.000.
It depends a lot on how big the convention is and what the dealer room and bar have to offer, though.

And I visit between 4 and 12 anime and comic events per year...

I budget $1000 after travel, lodging and food, but I never spend that much. Not even close. I just make that my budget, so I don't have to wonder if I should spend the money or not. I usually try to find items I can't get elsewhere. I pick up a few common items too just because. I'm really not there to spend money. I picked up 3 prints last time, but those are cheap. The frame on 1 was more than all 3 prints together. I also got a couple of scrolls as my why not items, and a nice button up shirt that I'll never find anywhere else. Even if I count having the prints matted and framed I came in way under budget.

Now, if I had gone to the gun show across the street in Market Hall, I'd have spent way over budget and still wanted more. I almost did run across the street for a couple of hours Sunday morning, but decided against it. This is Texas, there's always a gun show somewhere.

Crap, now I want to find a gun show.

I am 15 and I live in Illinois, so I can't get a job yet until i turn 16. My dad has to give me money to buy stuff at the conventions and he gives me $200 for each convention. I go to 3-5 conventions a year, when I get my own job i can go to more conventions and bring more money to each convention.

I've only been to two conventions so far.

Update:
Let's see for hotel, travel, food, shopping and registration (3-day pass), it was about $330.

The most recent convention, Sac Anime last month, that I went to I spend about $450 between hotel, food, travel and buying stuff. That doesn't even account for the registration that I did online that was $35( for a 3 day pass).
