Be sure of which day a guest is doing photo ops/autographs before purchasing your admission tickets. You must have an admission ticket for the day of your photo op and/or autograph.

Having the chance to get in-person autographs from the stars is one of the real benefits in attending our convention. Click here for guest prices!

REMINDER: Most guest will sign almost any item you bring from home or you can buy an item at the convention, but you need to have an item for the guest to sign. One ticket equals one autograph.

We cannot, however, accommodate over FOUR fans in any one photo op.

Giving Gifts to Celebrities
We know that many fans like to give gifts to our celebrity guests and we feel this is a lovely gesture.

Instead, we are offering the following addresses for fans to send gifts to the celebrities:
Attn: Ian Somerhalder or Paul Wesley
