A Recommended Convention Packing List
Not every convention requires attendees to pack a suitcase, much less create a list to pack a suitcase. For a local convention, you basically just hop in your car and go. But what about the convention that requires a hotel stay, and either a long car ride or a flight? What if you’re cosplaying too? In that case, I really recommend making the list. You don’t want to get to the con and realize you forgot an essential costume piece or the memory card for your camera.
Of course, this list is not exhaustive. Your cosplay and/or personal needs may require specific items on your packing list. However, I’ve tried to make this list as generally applicable as possible. I’ve even included a special section for those traveling to a convention by car, as there are some extra “recommended” items that would probably have to be left off if traveling by plane.
