Con Purchases (Swag, stuff, what you bought) 2013

Postby NeptuneFanatic » Wed Nov 06, 2013 3:28 pm

What'd everyone buy this year?

Personally, here is what I bought:

(3 for $25) 3 anime prints/posters (Sailor Moon, Soul Eater, Attack on Titan)
($10) Shuto Con T-Shirt
(Free with Platinum voucher) Youmacon 2013 T-Shirt
Does Maid Café count? I used my Platinum voucher for that.
-----------------
($14) Fairy Tail wall scroll as a gift for a friend's bday (signed by Todd and Tia).
I think I spent at least $60 on prizes for my panels, which was mainly artwork.

I left with $53 so I felt pretty good about not splurging (except on my panels; never again, though). I really do enjoy the poster/prints that I bought from one of the dealers.

In all reality, for MYSELF, I only spent $35. Last year, I spent $170. Big difference and I don't feel like I wasted my money!

I got a Sega Saturn. :3

I also got a few MLP pins and a Sailor Jupiter keychain.

I bought a Kaiba picture for my friend and it came with a dolphin picture because the artist was having a sale.

I also got my free Youmacon tshirt with my platinum voucher.

I am always really conservative in the dealers room because I don't ever bring tons of money with me to the con because I can barely afford the platinum badge. :P

I just wanted to say that I LOVED you and your gf's cosplays! You both looked epic and I'm glad you guys got an award at the Masquerade! :clap:

I was seriously considering saving my money and buying a figure but I kind of realized that A) the prices were outrageous, and B) I didn't see anything that really interested me besides an Ultimate Madoka figure but I refrained from buying it for $95.
One day I will find an awesome figure at a con that won't break the bank.

I wanted to see more variety in the DR this year, though.

The one thing I regret not buying was a Lupin the Third poster for $6. Sigh.

He basically bought every figure from Bakemonogatari that existed in the dealers room.

Thanks for the compliment!

It was a fluke that we even entered the contest. The people at the Charity Ball booth basically pushed us to do it. They convinced us with promises of free pizza, desserts, Faygo and no line wait for the masquerade. I'm glad we did it the back room was filled with awesome people!

I bought this most glorious Puppycat plush! Flower crown not included unfortunately. I love it so. I super regret not buying these ink prints of foxes, bears, owls, etc. in the artist alley for only $6 a piece. They would've matched my room perfectly.

I spoiled myself this year. First Youmacon being single, plus I recently got a job.

3 cels - Porco Rosso, Fushigi Yugi, and Chobits (came to a total of $106)
2 portal T shirts - $30
Totoro bag - $20
Totoro wallet -$15
Porco Rosso DVD - $25
Yotsuba cellphone charm - $12
Moogle plushie - $25
Starry Nights otome game - $25
accessories for my bento box (strap and matching chop sticks) - $7

Never thought about how much I spent o_o Came with $300 and just went with it. I'd use it on food, but if I ran out of money I had food stashed up in my hotel room.
