So my youngest daughter's favorite wrestler is Luke Harper. As in she has his action figure as well as the life-size cutout of him in her room. Turns out he is going to be at a Comic-Con nearby doing a photo-op and autograph session. Suffice to say, we are both totally geeked out at the opportunity to meet him in person.

That said, I have never been to a con before. I read the FAQ for the event, but I am still curious as to how these sort of things run - are you just in-and-out, or do you have a minute or two for the guy to meet his biggest fan? She would like to bring the poster she made about him for a school project and just show it to him, would something like that be allowed?

Thanks in advance!

At the only con I've been to (small-ish local one), I had a minute or two to chat with the stars I wanted, but the lines weren't that long. If this is a big convention or the line is long for Harper specifically, they might be more prone to rushing you. He's not the biggest star so you might be in luck.

As far as bringing stuff, at the con I was at, you paid $X for an autograph or a picture, and more if you wanted to buy an 8x10 or something to get signed. So if I had wanted to bring a thing (I didn't), I could have.

The only celebs I talked to weren't actually people I cared about, but I got a few autographs for a friend who couldn't attend. FYI, Kevin Sorbo loses interest in chatting real quick if you say you've never actually watched Hercules.

Thanks for the advice! There was quite the crowd as Norman Reedus was also there, but the Wyatt line moved pretty well. She had a great time meeting him and got to show him the poster. He was super nice, giving her a smile and shaking her hand.

I've always loved dramas set in post-apocalyptic society ever since I saw Heston in The Omega Man.
