I've been to one convention, but I've been to it two different years. Adding both, in merchandise alone, I've spent probably near eight hundred. Food and other amenities jack that cost up to probably a thousand. Not including the cost of the flight and the hotel.

I've been lucky enough to not have money responsibilities other than a phone and internet payment.

I never spent more than $100 at a convention until the dealers told me they accepted debt. That was a dark day indeed....

I normally spend about 200 at each con. But this is just dealers room stuff. Not including hotel and things like that.

By far I've never spent anything in a con that has to do with food. For some reason, I always bring my own snacks and beverages with me in my little backpack, which, thankfully they would allow.

As an artist myself, I spend a huge partition of my in-Con budget on the Artist's Alley (or any place that's lined up with artist booths). The rest would go on getting some merchandise, like keychains, prize figures and collectibles. I've never set up my own artist booth yet, but I think I'm planning to do it for the first time, next year, so, I have to get my research and marketing/finance strategies going.

I bring as much money as I can spare, plus a credit card I can abuse, and I spend it all in the Dealers' Room and Artists Alley. At least $200 cash to start but can go way more depending on treasures one finds... I really wanted to be rich when I saw Steampunk clothing, hats, watches and jewelry at a con but I was so broke that year... T_T
