I’m thinking about going to this Witching Hour Harry Potter convention/academic conference-type thing, and the way I have it figured, with travel/hotel/meal costs plus the con itself, the price of going for two days will be about $900.
Now, I’m a poor college student, but I’m also a geeky one. I’ve got about $2000 in the bank that I won on a game show, and I’ve always been one to favor good memories and experiences over cash in hand.
To those of you who have been/go to cons: what’s the lowdown? Is a $100 registration fee worth it for two days? I get that the big appeal is in meeting/hanging out with like-minded people, but I’m trying to get a clearer picture of how they work, I guess?
Does anyone have any good or bad con experiences to share? Any words of advice from an experienced con-goer? I’m trying to get as much information as I can before I make my decision.
