I spent a bit more money than I meant to, but less than I might have. I think that I was pretty responsible with my money. Mostly. Overall. I think...
First, I got a book. I haven't gotten a chance to read it yet, but it's definitely eye catching, and was pleading with me to liberate it from the book seller. It's Screaming Science Fiction: Horrors From Out of Space by Brian Lumley. Between its covers is a collection of short stories that look pretty neat.
Yes, I know the info thingy says Nenya. But if you'll look at the photo, you'll see it's not really Nenya.
The vendor was really selling Nenya, though, and the ring I got was from Lord of the Rings as well. So I guess they decided to give me the info for Nenya. Anyways, I liked the three leaves on the ring I got, and kept going back to drool over it until I finally gave in and bought it.
Someone was handing out stickers. An awesome one that simply says "Word Horde" and shows some angry vikings ready for a fight. (Seems like a good sticker for any writer to have.) The other seems to be an advertisement for a website.
Someone actually just gave this to me, because he had too many books to take home already. It's A Cthulhu Mythos by Chris Jarocha-Ernst. It's basically a good cross reference for someone who is learning about, or wants to looks up details about, Lovecraft's world.

Don't ask me to explain why I want the second one, since I'm scared of spiders. I just like it. And it would have cost a bit more than all the souvenirs I did buy added together. *sigh*
One thing's for sure. The artist Liv Rainey-Smith picked up at least one new fan at the Con. Her stuff is amazing.
