I've never spent over like, $30 in the dealers room LOL. Each year usually I just buy a couple of posters or a plushie or something, since I don't collect figures or anime/manga. ^___^;;

HOWEVER, I spend like double or triple that amount in the artist's alley. ;u; I guess prints/buttons/the art aspect of fanime appeals to me more. xD

In total, including badge cost, I never exceed spending $200 in each of the three years I've gone to fanime.

This year I'm gonna bring lotsa money to the swap meet. Hopefully I'll find stuff that I like that *u*!! Cuz last year only went friday (and late, cuz of the FLOW concert), and only got to spend a little bit of time in there. ;n; !!!

I spend between 500-600 at Fanime. 125 for my room, 75 roughly for food for the weekend and the rest on swag.

Only $50 this year.
My $600 Budget last year puts it to shame.
Well, time to kill myself...

Would it be obnoxious of me to say I don't really have a budget? I got back about thirty-five hundred dollars in taxes, a chunk of it when to plane ticket/hotel, I've put aside about 500 for food, and the rest is in a "use as needed" fund. ><''

It was kind of the point, beyond expanding my collection (Some of those Manga still need reading (>_>) )
Mind you that was just Dealers Room and Swap Meet. I spent over a grand total last year. Though I was also covering for 3 people so it is expected...

Figures are absurdly expensive as they go up in quality.
The average size low end figure can go from $10-20, and depending on popularity even these skyrocket.

So what we chillin?

I'm actually going to NYC with some friends in a few weeks, hopefully. Not for a con, just for a vacation.

When I got an "allowance" for Fanime I only got $50 my first year and $100 the next few... and I actually ended up spending only half of that on everything (dealers room and food). It's amazing how much money you can save when you keep your impulse buys to a minimum.

If your not a figure buyer than its easy to save money. Also if your male its easyer. im not being sexist or anything its just that at Fanime they dont really sell Yuri books Nor do they sell Lollita male clothing. The clothing there from the fasion people are EXPENSIVE like 120 just for a jacket.

Thing is, I still need to get some DVDs of older anime, and fanime is my best shot. Plus it is tradition for me to get a new messenger bag every year at fanime, so that is $25-$36 gone from the start.

This is my last fanime, so I'm going out big.

Though to be honest I came to fanime 4 years ago with a solid $1,000. Most I've ever spent in a weekend.
