Beacuse i usually spend like 200 on food and stuff from the dealer's room

The items bolded below will actually SAVE you money. ;)



Quote
* Coupons for free or discounted meals at selected restaurants.
* Pre-registering early for the con means you get to pick up your badge and other goodies in a shortened seperate registration line with minimal waiting time when the con starts on Thursdays.
* Coupon for a free AC tshirt and/or other goodies at the Con Store in Hall A or B.
* Invitation to the Supersponsor Luncheon on Saturday with the Guests of Honor, as well as Uncle Kage, but only if a person has pre-registered for the convention.
* Supersponsors get "first come, first served" seating during performance events.

If you want any of that, yes :P

These are the kinds of things that can be (almost) as cheap as you want them to be, or as expensive as you let them be. Registration is $50. So if you happened to live within walking distance, that's pretty much the minimum cost you could get away with (assuming going back to your dwelling for meals as well).

Since this is a rather unlikely situation, a lot of it will rest on where you stay, if you find people to split the room with, how many days you stay at the hotel, and how much you plan to spend on stuff at the con. And then factor in a little money for food as well, which will vary with what/where you eat.

Some others might be able to give some more specific numbers on budgeting for a con, but it seems like it's pretty flexible once you hit the major overhead stuff.

I am most likely going and hopefully my boyfriend will be coming with me. I room with two other friends so it saves us a bit on the hotel room. I also bring lunch meat and things for us to eat so it is less expensive. The hotel they stay in is literally right across the street from the center.

I'm already planning my outfits XD I really wish I could get a head made, but I'm not sure if I will have the funds to do so. So I guess I will just have to stick with my masquerade mask that I've made.

Before I answer your question, you may want to read this first:
http://www.anthrocon.org/faq/minors
Your profile says you're 14. You'll need your parents permission first before you can go and you'll need to print and have a form signed by them.

Now as for room shares........that depends on who a person is sharing a room with and how reliable those people are when it comes to them paying their fair share of the room costs, and how well a person knows the other people.

Me and my husband are going to be there! Super excited, because this will be the second "long-distance" vacation we've had as a couple. We are just lucky that his work schedule for this year allows us to go :).

My parents are fine with all of this, I explained and they've read the site info. They're okay with what ever I decide to do.

Been doing some thinking lately and I most likely will have to skip this con due to financial reasons.  :( Hopefully, I'll be back for 2014 with a new fursuit........and a new surprise. ;)

*goes back to work hooking up and soldering electrical components, transistors, wires, etc., then flips a switch*

BOOM!


*cough, cough*  :P  :o  Kobuk's face is all black and his fur messed up.

Sigh. Back to the drawing board.  :(  ;)

We would love to go, but alas we are too young to take ourselves... Besides, our parent doesn't approve of the whole furry thing anyway, so it would be rather difficult to convince her otherwise. Guess we shall have to wait...

AAARGH, i hope to go when i am 18 but why do i have to live in the boring dreary old island of the U.K. it's not as though i can just slip off to america for a while without my guardians asking where i am going and why. *sighs* maybe when i am in university i will get the chance. oh how i envy you all,
p.s. MAKE SURE TO ENJOY YOURSELVES, yes that includes you kobuk, and take lots of pictures, i can't wait to see what it is like this year!!!, *bear hugs to all* :-)

I'm thinking about it...gotta figure it out very soon though if I want to try to go there this year. If not, hopefully next year. I won't be able to stay the entire length though I know that as a fact.
