I have gotten an autograph at every con that I have attended. So hopefully these tips for getting autographs at a convention can help you out!The first autograph that I got was Tom Felton‘s on Saturday at FanX 2015. The second autograph that I got was the Phelps twins at on Thursday at Comic Con 2015. The third autograph was Jason Isaacs on Friday at FanX 2016. The shortest wait time was for the Phelps twins, it was basically non existent. The longest wait time was for Tom Felton, I waited with my sister for four hours!!!
Autographs are pretty cool because it give you a chance to actually talk to the celebrities more so than in a photo op. Photo ops they try to get people through quickly which is understandable because of the huge demand. During autographs you get a chance to talk while the celebrity signs what ever you end up choosing. They have photos available for you to select and have the celebrity sign. I’ve always had them sign my Harry Potter books.
Tips for getting autographs
I only really have three tips for autographs:
1-If at all possible try to avoid scheduling an autograph on Saturday, for obvious reasons. 🙂
2-Be patient. Even though I had to wait for four hours it was definitely worth it! Plus, it is fun talking to the people who are in line with you. While I was waiting for Tom Felton their was an adorable little kid that was dressed up as Harry Potter, I was dressed up as Bellatrix Lestrange. He was adorable! He kept pointing his plastic wand at me and “jinxing” me.
3-If you want to have the celebrity sign something personal instead of the available photos make sure that it doesn’t cost more. I have seen some that do and some that don’t. It should say on the website or usually you can ask one of the workers at the Celebrity Row.
Tom Felton signed Harry Potter and the Deathy Hallows
The Phelps twins signed Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince
Jason Isaacs signed Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets
My goal is to eventually get all of the Harry Potter books signed! 🙂
