Default What do you take to conventions?

I'm just wondering what people take to Conventions

And maybe include a few things you see people take to conventions you find either impractical or simply annoying

A bag. That's basically it.

As for things people take that annoy me, signs. More specifically, "free hugs" signs or similar. Go away, nobody wants to hug you, you sweaty mess

ALL OF THE STEAMPUNK THINGS!



As we usually work the steampunk area (certainly at MCM), our usual load includes 2-3 outfits each, a mannequin (and outfit for that) and whatever steampunk gadgets/gizmos/things we want to display.

On the rare occasions we attend a con as regular punters, just the usual hand/shoulder bags containing drinks, snacks and the usual stuff.

Large rucksacks are a particular bugbear of mine - we often get these at model railway exhibitions as well as cons and the folk wearing them always seem to forget they stick-out a further 18" when they decide to turn round in a crowded space...

Phone charger / battery, Sony NEX-5T with the 35mm lens (eeeee, looking forward to trying this properly at a convention!), shoulder bag, water

Obviously... also money.
