General – DragonCon Packing List – Updated for 2022!

  • Costumes:
    • List each costume and pieces for it. I actually have a spreadsheet of this I do yearly.

    • Makeup remover
    • Hairspray / gel / mousse / dry shampoo
    • Extra towels (if sharing a room!)
    • Extra toilet paper – There never seems to be enough
    • Poo-pourri spray (trust me, you’ll thank me later)
  • Hair dryer (The hotel one sucks)
  • Brush / Comb
  • pack-all-the-things1Flat iron
  • Makeup
  • Contacts & Solution
  • Glasses
  • Phone charger
  • Battery packs / portable chargers (You’ll need them)
  • Laptop & charger (if needed – hotels charge for wifi unless you’re a member of some ex: Hilton)
  • Camera, Memory cards, batteries/charger, film if you’re going that route
  • Extra batteries
  • Foodage:

    • Snacks
    • Ready made meals
    • Adult beverages – three package stores within walking distance but they upcharge.
    • Non-alcoholic beverages
    • WATER
    • Refillable water bottle
  • Bedding (If you’re on an air mattress)
  • Con-Survival Kit:
    • Safety pins
    • Ibuprofen
    • Needles and thread
    • Hot glue gun / E6000
    • Duct tape
    • Extra insoles for shoes (You’re going to do a lot of walking)
    • First aid kit
      • Bandaids
      • Neosporin
      • Peroxide or alcohol wipes
      • Cold compresses
  • Money
    • Cash – There are ATMS nearby including Bank of America
    • Debit/credit cards
  • ID and Insurance Cards – For obvious reasons (last year they required Covid-19 vaccine or a negative test – this post will be updated once the policies are announced Aug 1).


  • Publix is just a short walk/uber away, and some people have Whole Foods deliver to their hotel. I recommend getting a few things that can be made in the room to save on how much you spend at the Food Court or elsewhere. Some hotels have microwaves and refrigerators, a lot do not. Scope out your hotel’s amenities before you arrive.

And be sure to leave extra room in your suitcase for swag!! It’s kinda difficult if you’re flying, but definitely try.

That should keep you covered!!
