im assuming you mean merchandise/artist prints?
if depends on what you plan on getting like at emerald city in seattle some artist were selling pre drawn stuff for like 5 dollars and even your choice donations,bu they were mainly indepent or web illustrators who skecthed a few charecters from a series they want to get out there others were 50 nucks a prin by marvel and dc artists

so it REALLY depends on what you plan on getting
well i suppose i will probs be buying mainly comics and maybe a couple of prints
ive already set some autograph cash aside
and if you have time and are comfortable enough you should defiantly go in costume haha i scored a free annihilation poster from a booth when i was Nova
oh wow lol that is cool
i wont have time to get a costume together now
but i do have one planned for next year, gonna be awesome
Depends on what kind of con-goer you are and what you plan to buy.
I buy lots of indy comics and ashcans. I maybe spend $100 at a con, I usually bring $2-300 in cash which should cover purchases and food and emergency money.

My Husband gets a lot of original art/drawings, so he can easily drop $300-500 in a few minutes.

Most cons have bank machines, but I highly recommend bringing more cash than you think you will need, as bank machines have looong lines, and usually run out of cash quickly. It can be a lot of money to carry on your person, so I would also suggest a money belt. Pick-pockets can be quite prevalent at busy events like cons.
Hey folks,

sorry, totally off topic, and since the member does not have access to the OT I will leave this thread up but it needs to be locked and will be moved to the OT in a few days.
