YOU can meet celebrities at Paradise City Comic Con. This is your definitive guide for finding out how to get up close and personal with the superstars.
VIP Cocktail Party
Most of our celebrities who appear on Friday will also show up to the VIP Cocktail Party. These parties are limited to 400 people, and the atmosphere is upbeat and casual. We’ll have a DJ, a bar where VIPs can get 2 free drinks, and a whole bunch of celebrities mingling with fans. Special Guest James Marsters (Buffy the Vampire Slayer) will be performing a live acoustic set! CLICK HERE to purchase a VIP ticket https://register.growtix.com/e/paradise_city_comic_con/4334
Celebrity Panels and Q&As
Every celebrity at Paradise City Comic Con will talk to fans from one of our stages. Most will also take questions from fans during their talk. 99% of these panels are included in the price of admission to the convention. On rare occasions, we get a limited engagement with a celebrity that requires an extra fee for the Q&A. If this happens, it will be clearly stated in the guest announcement.
Walk right up to a celebrity’s booth to buy an autograph for an item of your own or choose an 8×10 glossy photo from their table. Most celebrities will also offer a combo deal at their table that includes a selfie with them that you take on your own camera. Celebrities are usually at their booth when they are not at a panel, in a photo op, or at lunch or dinner. You can purchase autographs with cash at the celebrity’s booth.
Celebrity Selfies (Tableside Photos)
Most celebrities will take a photo with you at their booth for a fee. We call these selfies, but you can have a friend or the celebrity’s handler take the picture if you want. This is a great way to get more time with your favorite stars, especially if you combine it with an autograph. You may purchase selfies with cash at the celebrity’s booth.
Celebrity Photo Ops
The top celebrities at our event will be available for professional photo ops with you during scheduled sessions with a professional photographer. These photo ops come with an 8″x10″ glossy print available immediately after the photo is taken plus a digital image that you can download for free after the event. Extra prints are available for $10. We will tell you on the celebrities’ guest pages on our website if they plan to do photo ops, and we will post the price as soon as we have it from their agents. We finalize the photo op schedule about 3 weeks before our event, but it is also subject to change.
Every celebrity that takes professional photos with fans will be scheduled for a session on each of the days they appear at our show. You’ll need an admission ticket and a photo op ticket to get a photo op with the celebrity you want to meet. Be prepared to be present during exhibition room hours on one of the days the celebrity is scheduled to appear. These photo ops cannot be exchanged or refunded unless a celebrity cancels their appearance with the event, so be sure to be on time for one of the scheduled sessions.
You can purchase photo ops online in advance or with cash on site if we don’t sell out of these limited opportunities before the event.
Exhibition Room Hours:
Friday, 12:30PM – 8:00PM
Saturday, 10:30AM – 8:00PM
Sunday, 10:30AM – 6:30PM
