For a while I'd only ever go to one con a year, but now that circumstances have changed and I currently have a job and a drivers licence, I can start going to more of them now.

This year I've been to 2 full weekend cons, and spent a day at 3 separate Expos with one more in the running. I would have attended 3 cons, had Fushi ran this year, but sadly not. I tend to take every opportunity I get to attend a con or Expo, and with the UK being small and pretty easily accessible for these kind of things, it makes it pretty easy.
upcoming cosplays:
garry (ib) | yosuke hanamura (persona 4) | ryotaro dojima (persona 4)
shigeaki kato (news/koyashige) | naegi makoto (dangan ronpa)

I hit Dragon*Con, Anime Weekend Atlanta, Momocon, SeishunCon, and Timegate this year. Adding Emerald City Comic Con to the line up next year if finances allow. I would go to another 5 a year if I could!
I used to be a cosplayer like you, but then I took an arrow to the knee.

I have been doing AX Since 2004, and ALA since 2009. But after meeting my current GF, I've gone to about 6 cons this year so far. And plans to go back to all of them next year.
Everyone else has a signature >.>

Cons I went to this Year:
ALA 2013

Upcoming Cons:
Biggest Little Fur Con (BLFC)

I failed to put a cap on conventions this year and went a little overboard and spent too much money. I did 5 cons, 4 of which required staying in hotels, and 1 that was out of town and I had to fly. Needless to say, it was an extremely expensive summer. Other than con expenses and costumes, I did not have money for anything else. I couldn't justify it when I also have rent, car, and groceries.

Next year, I think I'm going to limit it to 2 or 3, and try to find alternatives to hotels.

Only once a year. I would catch more if I could, but I'm a poor college student.

At the moment, I have only been able to go to a con once a year (AX!!! Woot!)

I am hoping to change that and go to some other nearby conventions. ^.^

This year, I went to two conventions (Omnicon and Anime Weekend Atlanta) and three events (Murfreesboro Anime and Comic Con and Nashville Anime Day 2012 #1 and #2) Next year, though, I'd like to double the convention numbers and maybe go to MomoCon or Otakon or maybe even Dragon*Con.

I go to 2 conventions a year here at home, then whatever I can afford after that. So far that makes 2-3 conventions a year. Hopefully next year will be 5

I went to 2 this year (Kitsune Kon & Geek Kon) and 3 small events (Mini renaissance faire, Kitsune Kon Fall Ball, and World Hetalia Day). I'll probably try to keep it around that number next year, even though the renaissance faire is becoming a 3 day event and I'm volunteering.

I used to go to like 5 or more, a few years back. I haven't decided how many I'll be doing this time. I'm going to start with two, for now, and work my way up if I have the funds. It's mostly the cost of the hotel that kills me since I stay alone. Plus I drive a Jeep. That thing guzzles gas.
