Totally wanted to purchase something that wasn't digestable, but my lack of money prevented that.
So... upwards $20.
Next year, man.

Nothing the dealers hall this year was awful, the selection and prices were outrageous most of it wasn't that rare and almost no new stuff, more importantly everything was over priced.

The only thing that caught my eye was this one figure that was out of print if still available would be 90 dollars shipped. Stupid dealer was asking 120 which was pushing it but I really wanted it and would have payed the extra 30 bucks to take it home. So I go to grab it and pay for it and the back of the box is all smashed in couldn't see that when it was on the shelf and it had a ton of customs tape that could not be removed. I asked if he would come down a little bit because of the damage and he wouldn't lower it even by a dollar. He said the item still new just the box is messed up. I don't buy damaged items I like my stuff new, unless he was going to give me a 40-50 percent discount.

So I said forget it I'll either pay a few extra bucks on Ebay or wait for the re-release and pay retail 80 dollars new for one.

I don't know what happened in previous years you could get a deal at the the con better than online, and they at least had stuff worth buying in person.

That's all I can really remember buying. So it all comes out to about $515. Smallest amount I've spent in years I believe. I actually had money left over after  :o
I know, what's wrong with us?!

Where does one acquire so much money?
People can buy hundreds of figures and not starve to death.

Simple, plan and save. E.g. I put aside $X from every paycheck towards my Fanime fund with a target goal of Y and don't touch it. Have an idea of what I want to buy and always keep in mind that I can either walk away or find the item (s) online. I don't need it right then and there and if the dealer refuses to move on price, their loss. Save money elsewhere during the con, especially on food and drink, by bringing as much of my own food as I can and carrying a water bottle. Spend $2 at McDonald's for meals by getting two $1 menu sandwiches and not combo meals since I stopped drinking soda anyway. Honestly none of this hard to do when one practices discipline and sets priorities.

Where does one acquire so much money?
I own people and things.

Who can deny sharing Pocky with awesome cosplayers? It's quite the great past time.
