celebs-bcc15

Professional photo ops with Boston Comic Con’s Media Guests Billie Piper, Elvira: Mistress of the Dark, Thomas Jane, Robin Lord Taylor, Hayley Atwell, Brett Dalton, and Stan Lee are now available at the link! *UPDATE: Gillian Anderson had to cancel.*

Please note: Prices, times, and guests are subject to change and do not include taxes or fees, so be sure to check the schedule at the show to verify times. You are welcome to have up to 4 individuals & any children under 3 in one photo op (not counting the celebrities) for one price.Please ensure you have valid admission into the convention before purchasing photo ops.

Unless otherwise specified, guests will NOT be appearing in costume

In order to reduce the wait time for our customers we have implemented a “group” system for some very popular guests, meaning the photo op is subdivided into smaller sessions. While the photo op itself might start at 5pm, for example, your actual ticket may have a later time of 5:30 or 6:00 posted on it. Tickets are sold on a first come, first served basis and these photo ops may last up to 2 hours, so please arrive only a few minutes before the time printed on your ticket! Arriving any earlier will not be useful to you as you will be asked to come back for the time on your ticket.

On-site sales will be cash only. You are encouraged to pre-purchase as sessions can sell out and you avoid the ATM line-ups.

LAST DAY FOR REFUNDS: emails that were time stamped no later than midnight EST Sunday, July 26th, 2015. We will be unable to offer refunds after that time unless a guest has to postpone their appearance.
