And see you next Saturday!
I'm really looking forward to the con. But got bummed by one thing- how much the con is charging for some autographs and photo-ops. Would have loved to get John Barrowman, but the photo-op is about $50 and I think his autograph is $40.
It use to be that autographs were a nice extra they gave to fans at con. After all they are paid to be at the things. Sometimes the actors would ask for a couple of bucks as a fund raiser for a charity. Personally, I think this a fall over from sports people who asked for money at cons/gatherings from the get go.
Ugh yes - agree. I think the actors wouldn't charge if they could all manage to do so without disrupting the "we all get paid for this" pact
What gets me is the some of the prices. The two Torchwood guys- Barrowman and David-Lloyd (is it?)- are $80 for a joint photo op. A bit pricey, but I suppose if one has the money, affordable. But the X-File couple- $220 for the photo op.
Even the autographs run about that much. I'm thinking about Barrowman's, but probably won't.
