How much did Chchgeddon cost you?
Post By Mandie_Chan. 30/03/09, 11:18 am

heya i just kinda super curious not in a bad way but how much did you spend on geddon 09?
this includes everything! (or not everything if you dont want)

im gonna put mine up when i caculate it but it includes things like:
Cosplay costs (re-using cosplays = free)
Tickets (entry 2 geddon/bus/plane/taxi/hotel etcetc)
money spent at geddon
lunch had elsewhere
money buying things for other people at geddon
and anything else you wanna include


roughy for me:
Cosplays
Larxene - fabric ($4, $12, $5), Hair ($29.95), boots - (mum paid = free), = $50.95
Wanda - fabric ($13.75, $13.20, $3.80), hat ($5.50, $6), glasses ($2), red pens ($5.70) = $49.95
Menos - Fabric ($20) =$20
Tickets
2 day pass $32
Stuff bought
Furuba 23 ($10)
Random spending
lunch-rivens included ($14), lost wallet ($25 cash, $15 replacement effpos, $2 ben 10 wallet T.T oh and sasukes calender i got last year $2) = $59

All together spent = $201.90


so what did you spend?

Lets seeee...

RvB Recon - $25
Eva 1.0 - $20
FMA Collection 2 - Don't know (perhaps $40?)
Wolfs Rain Fat Pack - $40?(Also don't know)
Badges - $15
Balthier Figure - $60

I think thats it, though I bought $200 of other things over the weekend, but not at 'geddon.

So... $200 at 'geddon, $200 outside 'geddon, probably $50 on Utsubushi, and around $50 on Food etc.
Around $500.
Where did all my money go? Thats where! XD

In an "OMG you spent lots of money!" kind of way, or an "is that all you spent?" kind of way?

'Cause I don't really eat that much, though no matter how much I eat I always have more room.
I don't know where it all goes, since I keep LOSING weight! :S
The dinner filling me was a fluke, and they saved the best for last when I was full sad

$23 on the dinner, and about 15 on the way up to Chch, then like 20-30 on day one, and 50 for day 2 until we were back in Dunedin, so more like 100+

Oh God, I'm so poor. And unhealthy.. so much fast food.

Yeah, I got mine for the same, three years ago. Farmers were the only place in Chch I could find that had them (on short notice) so I ended up forking it out - and then they were broken! I had to go back and swap them out for a too-small size. Grrrrrrrr.
