Just the Basics: Budgeting for Your Con Weekend
How to accurately assess how much your convention experience ACTUALLY Costs. There are a few main factors we forget to consider, so I'm gonna layout the groundworks for a general idea of the things you need to remember to accommodate for.
Merchandise/Events: (however much you think you'll spend) x 2
Lodging: ~$30 assuming you have 3 friends and are in a double queen room
Food: ~$50 bring your own food and make it stretch (take a trip to Aldi beforehand)
Cosplay: ~$100 PER cosplay
Keep in mind that these are all subject to change based on the con itself, location of the con, as well as the number of friends you'll be splitting a room with. Remember to be responsible with your money so you can afford to hit up more conventions later on!
