Re: Steel City Report

heelorton79 - I paid for autographs from all of the celebs pictured. Only Kimmy/& Harry's manager charged me extra ($20) for a snapshot of them solo.

Steel City Report

I don't think I've ever written a report here. I started going to Cons in 2009 and went crazy at horror themed conventions. Life stuff came up in 2012 and I dropped from 5-10 shows a year to 1 and sometimes none. This year I'm getting back into things and decided to hit the Steel City Con since it's...

Re: Now Biff, don't (Steel City) Con me!

Thanks. I was just curious. I saw several people walk away when they heard the price. I think he'd have made much more money with a combo discount.

Re: Now Biff, don't (Steel City) Con me!

Did he charge you $50 for the selfie too? His manager tried to get a buddy of mine to drop another $50 for a selfie after paying $50 for a sig. He passed. I wondered if they changed the policy later considering his line was pretty dead.

I thought for sure it was going to be a Halloween reunion. Shows what I know.

Re: 16times Visits Steel City Con

I started in 2009. My first show was MM which was having a huge Friday the 13th reunion. Everyone charged $20 a sig and photos were free with purchase. If a show had a "headliner", like Alice Cooper, it would be $30 a sig and free pics. Charging more for photos was unheard of at shows like that unti...

Re: Con prices

I guess if you value vacation over photo ops that makes perfect sense. I for instance prefer photo ops over a vacation. So it makes sense for me to pay for a photo op want. I enjoy ops, but it it comes down to a 30 second interaction and a snapshot vs a week long getaway, yeah, I'll take the vacati...

Re: Con prices

There's really no one to me who's worth over $100 for a photo and I don't really do much in terms of autographs, so I'm rapidly losing my interest in cons. I could go on a week-long vacation for what I dropped at the last MM I went to and, to me, that's pretty ridiculous. I know it's a business and ...

Re: Top 5 Realistic Guest Want List...

Hmm, it's tough because I doubt most of my biggest "wish to meets" would never do shows. I suppose I'll go with:

Robert Duvall
Tommy Lee Jones
Kurt Russell
Steve Buscemi
Rider Strong
