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

A bag, clothes and a charger. I don't pack too heavily.

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.

A bag, my phone and my wallet.

I always tell myself I won't buy anything but leave with a full bag.

Little backpack, portable charger, money and phone. A Vita or 3DS if I'm travelling far. Oh and anything I want signed

I just wish people would bring more of their attention span with them. Seriously, do not keep walking forward when you are not looking ahead. You will walk into me and I will not step aside for you.

I'm fine with people not paying attention where they're walking as Its easy to move over a few feet, or if they walk in front of me just make sure I protect my stuff when I walk into them

The thing that does annoy me though is people just stopping, don't give any indication they're going to stop, they just stop.

Yeah that ones really bad. Almost face planked into someones back and that before.

Also people who do use the halls for seating, keeping their belongings more out in the walk ways. I put mine on me or to the side, not in front. Manchester and Liverpool it's no issue but London is manic.
