I really try to keep it under $150, but if I "have" to go to $200 I will.

It can range anywhere from $50 - $1,000 per convention:

- $500 on merch
- $200 on food
- $200 on hotel
- $50 Tranportation
- $50 Badge

My first convention I spent about £250 in the first hour. Never been to one before so it was just buy buy buy. My second I'm spent £150 in total but I only really picked up things I need for my cosplay for the next convention I go to.

Went to my first con over the weekend. Took 400 dollars with me in cash, gave my last dollar to my friend to pay for parking as we were leaving. I also made several purchases with my debit card.

The spending is real. Too much. Well it depends on if the con has good stuff.

hmmm....last year for SDCC this is what my boyfriend and I ended up spending all together:

-$150 for hotel (2 nights, only attended Sunday)
-$70 for 2 badges
-$40 gas
-$150 food (helped out that we snacked most of the time lol)
-$100-ish on stuff
-$150-ish on outfits used for SDCC

I spent my money on artwork, my bf spent money on some shirts. SD is somewhat expensive, and we got our hotel at the last minute >.< luckily my car has amazing gas mileage, so fuel was really cheap.

About 75 to 100 in the dealers room alone. Depending if they have stuff worth getting.

Not a lot any more. I usually buy a majority of my stuff online so at cons I don't tend to spend too much. But I will throw down money if I spot a rare figurine being sold at a con. No lie

I try to budget at least $300 for the dealers room.
Sometimes I spend a little less, but usually, I spend more. T-T;

I don't usually spend a lot, but this past weekend at FanimeCon I went a little overboard.

$216 for four nights at the hotel (split 3 ways)
$55 for the 4-day badge
$171 for transportation (took the train)
$215 in the Dealer's Hall
$160 for food
$400+ on alcohol

Total over $1200 between Thursday-Monday

I don't plan to spend even half of that for Anime Expo in a few weeks. It helps that I only live about 20 minutes from there also.

This year at Anime North, not including the price of the ticket I spent about $120 CDN. And that doesn't include cab rides, food and beer.
