what to take to a con
Just was wondering if there is anything I should take to con that I forget/don’t take usually.
What I usually take is.
Housewife- thread, needles and thimble
List- times of panel, trains ect.
Phone/camera- to take pictures
Notebook.

Emergency food- something that won't melt or get squashed for when you need an energy boost. Cereal bars are good.
Water and/or a waterbottle. You can get ones that fold up when empty from Poundland
Hand sanitiser - the gel stuff is good and not too messy
Cash - there will be a queue for the cash machine

EDIT: Some sort of game or diversion is good if you have room. A handheld games console (DS, PSP etc), a deck of cards, even a frizbee. Something you keep you amused in queues, with the possibility of being an icebreaker with new friends.

Painkillers (if you're able to take them) and plasters. Even if you don't fall over and hurt yourself, I've found I've needed plasters to help some shoes for a costume fit better.

A small travel can of deodorant or body spray could also be handy. I found a little blast of that during the afternoon of LFCC quite nice.

Baby wipes - For getting stains of costumes. Works really well. Also good for cleaning hands.

Food and water - Good in general if you luck funds.

Phone with credit- Always make sure you have credit.

Camera and some of the usual stuff.

I don't know if this counts, but something I've found useful in general when you're going to be on your feet all day (particularly if your footwear is big/heavy/etc) - buy fabric plaster that you can cut to length and, when you're getting ready, put it in places that are prone to rubbing, i.e. heels, pinky toes, and this can often stop blisters and sore bits from forming - better than hobbling around later, I've found!

Of course, this is probably a well-known trick, but the day I discovered it, I felt like a genius

And that's not to say that carrying plasters isn't a good idea - it always is!

Yep. And if you do forget don't be a crazy S.O.B. about it. Or you will end up as mildly amusing meme.
