Varies between cons but probably at least $300-$400 depending on how much I cheap out on food and other things.

Otakon - I spent $10 after hotel. I actually bought two things for food, so maybe $30 [brought most snacks].

AUSA - $20 for food?

Katsucon - $300? Without hotel.


I did it out of order for the year, but yeah. I barely spend any.

usually around 500-1000$...I have a really bad spending habit. But I do work really hard so that when I finally am able to go to a convention, I can just make it rain everywhere.

I have no self control whatsoever. I've been to two diferent conventions, at my first I spent about 400$, (I didn't go with 400, I dont know how I got 400, but I spent it let me tell you).and my second convention was even worse. I spent about 600$ maybe even 700$

I usually bring around $300...or more. I try not to spend it all either. I usually end up spending most of it on figures though.

Just went to a recent convention and spent nothing.

I got a free exhibitor pass and free item of any choice (chose a vocaloid figure) just for helping a vendor setup their plushies and found free parking.

Brought food from home.

Went the entire weekend.

I even lived 10 minutes away from the convention.

I win.

But I usually spend average 600 bucks.

Hmm Not including accommodation and passes, maybe only $50 on goods? That's because there's places like Amazon and shopping services...

I try to go for all 4 days and end up spending:

$30 in gas (I live a half an hour from the Inner Harbor where Otakon is held, and I carpool.)

$100 for food.

$85 for admission

$500 for dealers room (may not spend all of it)

I only go to one convention a year, Anime Expo. I usually carry between 600-800 to spend on goods but rarely spend anywhere near that much, unless there is something i really like and have been looking for it for a while.

That doesnt include accommodations, plane ticket and entry to the convention.
