When your at a convention and you buy CD's, DVD's, Toys, etc, where do you put all the stuff you buy while you are at the convention?

In a bag o.o; Or if you have a hotel room, put it in there.

As Wolfwood, inside my cross.
To avoid confusion over which stuff belongs to which hotel roommate, I just place my bags in my car. I filled 7 Tokyopop bags at AX02.

I carried my stuff around in a backpack until I could stick it in the car.
This year I'm getting a hotel room so I can stash stuff there.

Hotel Room or car. I've made three trips back to my hotel room once for Otakon in one day. It's hard to cosplay and carry bags, oi. I wish more cons would invest in locker type rooms or something.

At AX01 and AX02, I carried my stuff around in my backpack and in bags. I had to keep getting bigger bags to hold more stuff. In the end, it would be something like ... bag within bag within bag, etc. Thank goodness, I'm gonna be in a hotel room with my friends for AX03 plus I'm taking my car this year. :D

well at i-con, i used a tiny backpack- it was pretty good- excpet for the fact that wallscrolls wouldn't fit in it! but this year, Wolfwood will be fun to cosplay, but less room to move, by the way: K_Valentine, how do you put things in your cross?!

My cross was built like the Punisher I (gun rack) out of wood. It was hollow inside and I added a few doors/lids to some parts of the cross.
It was heavy, bulky, and didn't even fit in my car. I want to rebuild it some day.

Put them all in my bag pack, and I make trips back to my room. Usuallly only once since I go in the dealers room like once a day.

HUGE tokyopop bags! And if there's ever a stop at the hotel, I'll drop some off there. But when I'm at a local con where I can juss stay home... I carry my bags all day. It's not so bad if they have big Tokyopop bags tho.
I made my fiance carry it. o.o;;

At AX01 and 02 I carried majority of my CD's DVD's and smaller items in my small backpack...and all of the larger items would be in a bag...I swear at the end of those two cons..I thought my arm was going to fall off....this year I am planning on buying lots of doujinshi,artbooks,DVD's,and CD's and maybe a couple plushies and other random items...so I am expecting this run to be the heavest ever since I am going for two days...which is going to kill me but oh well....it's alllll goood!!!

I wish I HAD put my stuff in the car. During our party someone stole a hentai DVD we bought. I knew exactly where it was, in a corner, and a few hours later it was gone. ;___; People shouldn't take other people's hentai! It's wrong!

2 words kimono sleeves ^_^; those babies can hold just about anything provided it fits inside it. Just make sure you add extra cloth at the bottom and heavily reinforce your stitching there so the weight doesn't cause it to rip ^_^; I used my yuna sleeves to store my wallet and digi cam at times but I might eventually make a pocket inside there instead of me just slipping it in through the arm hole and letting it drop to the bottom of the sleeve ^_^;
Bags are wonderful things esp free ones XD animaxis at ax 2001 had awesome huge bags. They were like 3 feet in width and like a foot or 2 tall and could hold my sakura wand inside it for when I was too lazy to actually hold it ^_^;

MegaCon and JACON- carry it around since walk back to car was too long. First two years of MegaCon I was able to take them to the car, but this year it was parked even further away.
Anime Express, FITCON, AFO- take it back to car.
Shoujocon, AWA- to hotel room.

Little luggage on wheels. The kind with handles. I've seen many cute ones made for kids at school lately? One was shaped like the Mystery Machine.
I love the sleeve idea though!
In the past I had a booth at a con and just shoved everything under our table...

No hotel room, no car, and home is far away... everything I buy (right in the bag) goes everywhere I go.

Little luggage on wheels sounds good and convenient. :)
