Do celebrities charge for autographs?
Most celebrities do charge for autographs, many supply a photo or other memorabilia that they'll autograph for you. The amount charged for autographs varies by celebrity, authors generally sign the book that you buy.
Will celebrities be available to sign autographs during the entire convention?
Yes, with the exception of one or two most of them will be available to sign the entire convention during dealers room hours. In the case where a guest will only be available for a few hours per day we will post that information very soon for that guest. We make every attempt to make sure as many people as possible can get an autograph from that guest also.
I was at last years convention and the line to meet Bruce Campbell was huge, any plans to make it easier on fans so we don't have to wait in line so long?
This year we are going to use a special colored and numbered custom printed ticket system. We will announce over the PA system as well as post signs throughout the convention which color and numbered ticket is up for getting in line. This way we can have 50 people in the line at a time instead of 1000plus , this should make it easier, more comfortable and more fun for everyone...
I was at last years convention and you needed a larger area designated for people to gather for some of the guest speakers?
Yes, we agree and have made plans for that. A new layout will allow us to make a large section into a speakers area with large seating capacity. We have also made arrangements with the hotel to convert the bar and or entire indoor pool area into large capacity theater style seating for the highest demand speakers, we are deciding which will work best. A podium and PA system will be setup to make sure everyone can hear and see the speaker. Some guests may also be scheduled to speak twice in separate sessions.
Can I bring a camera and photograph celebrities?
Yes! bring your camera, there will be lots of things going on that make for great photos. As far as taking photos or appearing in photos with one of the celebrities, well that is up to each individual celebrity that you ask. If you wait in line to see a celebrity to get their autograph they are generally happy to do it. You'll find that guests at our convention are very cool people, most of them are having as much fun as you are. Asking first is the key, if a guest says no or just one or two pictures then please respect that.
What if the celebrity I really wanted to see cancels and does not make the show for some reason, can I get a refund on my ticket?
Horrorfind does not list or announce any guest celebrity that we have not personally spoken to and confirmed for the show. That being said, of course there are extreme circumstances that may arise that might make it impossible for a guest to make it. At the last Horrorfind Weekend 2001 all of our big guests appeared as scheduled. In the event of an extreme circumstance causing a guest to cancel, we will make every effort to get another comparable guest. So in answer to the question, we will not refund a ticket based on a cancellation outside of our control. We ask that you come to the convention to enjoy the whole show and celebrity lineup, not just one single star or author.
I am not in Baltimore, do people come in from out of town for this show?
Yes! people come from all over the place for this show. Many people come and stay at the convention hotel for the entire event, see the Location page for hotel details. Please note the hotel sells out fast, reserve early.
What kind of vendors will be there?
Our vendors list is large and diverse, there will be vendors selling all kinds of books, collectibles, posters, movies, rare original memorabilia, models, games, kits, toys, art as well as Halloween vendors selling costumes, props, videos, lighting, special effects and more. The list is almost endless our dealers rooms will be sold out and filled with vendors.
