Shreveport's comic con, Geek'd Con, is coming back to Downtown Shreveport this August. The 2024 Geek'd Con will take place August 16th, 17th, and 18th, at the Shreveport Convention Center.

Tickets for this year's Geek'd Con are available right now. You can get yours here: https://geekdcon.ticketspice.com/geekd-con-2024 

The guest lineup will include horror movie icon Tony Todd, Scrubs star John C. McGinley, the voice of Master Chief Steve Downes, award winning actor Billy Zane, the voice of Mickey Mouse Bret Iwan, and many more incredibly talented celebrities.

Geek'd Con is basically a big meet and greet type event, where you can get pictures and autographs from these celebrities. There's also over 200 vendor booths that will be set up where you can shop for all kinds of geeky collectibles, clothes, custom art, books, toys, movie poster, comic books, and more.

When it comes to the autographs and pictures, there is a process with each guest. You can get more details listed out below.

Here's are the details posted on the Geek'd Con website:

There are a lot of great things to do at Geek'd Con. From vendor booths to cosplay, there's plenty to do. But one of the main attractions at the event is our celebrity guest lineup.

Basically this part of the event is like having a giant "Meet and Greet" session with the celebrities. There will be dozens of celebrities that you will be able to meet, get an autograph from, and take a picture with. But there are costs associated with this. So we thought we would put together a description of the process.

Basics

Every celebrity guest will have a designated booth space where they are scheduled to meet with fans. This is where you can get in line (or walk right up if there isn't a line!) to meet each celebrity guest to get a picture or autograph.

But each celebrity will have different options at each table too. Some do not take photos at their tables, and only participate in "professional photo ops". But all celebrities do charge a fee for autographs and pictures.

The prices are set by the celebrities, and 100% of that money goes directly to the celebrity guest. So if you're a huge fan of someone, and want to thank them directly for the hours of entertainment they have provided you, there's no more direct way than paying them for an in-person autograph.

Autograph And Selfie Photo Pricing

First – Cash is highly recommended to purchase autographs and pictures from celebrities. Although some celebrities will have the ability to accept credit cards, they will be the exception.

The autograph and "selfie" photo prices range from around $25 to about $80, with most in the $40 to $60 range.

We will do everything we can to list celebrity autograph and photo prices ahead of the show, but sometimes its not possible for certain guests. The online prices we have are also subject to change at the show, which is at the sole discretion of the celebrity guests. The prices listed will be for autographs on 8x10 photographs provided by the celebrity, or on most fan-provided items. Some celebrities will have different prices for special items brought by fans that will be more than their base charge.

When you buy an autograph from a celebrity, they will usually have 8x10 photographs. Sometimes they offer a slightly different size photo as an option, and sometimes larger sizes will carry premium prices. Celebrities may, at their discretion, choose not to sign certain fan-provided items.

You might have an item that you want to get multiple signatures on, and this is totally cool. Something like a photo that includes images of more than one celebrity, or a movie poster. You can get this done, but there will be a fee for each autograph on that item. Just because one guest was paid for their signature, it doesn't mean other signatures on the item will be free.

Some celebrities will also offer a "combo" price at their table, where you can get an autograph and a selfie for a discounted rate.

A "selfie" photo at a celebrities table is simply taking a photo with the celebrity using your phone or personal camera. These are different from "professional photo ops", and have a different price.

Do's and Do Not's At Celebrity Tables

Photography, video or still, and audio recordings are not allowed at celebrity tables without the express permission of the particular celebrity or celebrities you wish to photograph, film, or tape.

If you are going to get a "selfie" photo at a celebrity table, please be mindful of other guests in line, and have your camera ready.

Bringing gifts for the celebrities is a great way to make them feel welcome. But keep in mind that many celebrities are flying in for the event. While everyone appreciates gifts, it may be extremely difficult for celebrity guests to transport gifts on their flights.

Guests will take breaks for food, "pro photo ops", shopping, and casual breaks. You're more than welcome to maintain a spot in line while they're not at their table.

Many celebrities will only accept cash at their tables, please be mindful with the size of bills you might be using. While a $100 would be good for $80 worth of pictures and autographs from a celebrity, the guest may not be able to break a that large of a bill for a smaller total.

There will be many fans that want to meet each guest. Please be mindful with the celebrity guests' times when you approach their table. Attending these events are part of the guests' job. So please be respectful of their time when at their table.

More About Professional Photo Ops

We normally see two options for fans to get a photograph with the celebrity guests. The two kinds of “photo ops” are 1) "selfies" which are images at a guests table with your camera or 2) "professional photo ops" which are taken by a professional photographer with a high quality camera in front of a backdrop.

The "professional photo ops" also offer an option to have your picture printed on-site within minutes. You can then take that photo to get signed (for the guest's autograph fee) at the celebrity's table.

There will be a schedule for "professional photo ops" and it will be posted online on our site, and on our mobile app. These will be able to be purchased online before the event. You may also have a chance to buy "professional photo ops" on-site while space lasts.
