Extras sold out online will also be sold out on site.

PLANNING AND TIME FOR EXTRAS:
You will get the complete schedule of the weekend while you do the registration.
The time for your extras isn’t random, you will be called by rows and be able to follow directly how it goes on the big screen of the panel room, a team of staff will accompany and guide you.
Thank you for respecting this to avoid delaying the schedule.
You also need to respect the day you got for your extras.
Staff will be in charge of controlling and respecting these times, if you do not respect this, your extra might be canceled.
People having a meeting room will be drived by a member of our team. You will have to be at the « Meeting Point » (on the right of the stage) 15 minutes before your Meeting starts and your guide will make sure you have priority at the photo ops you might have at the same time. Please make sure you follow these instructions and your guide 🙂 Don’t go to your photo’ops without your guide under any circumstances if you have a Meeting! No refund or replacement will be processed if you don’t follow these instructions.
The panels are a time for questions and answers with the audience, you are invited to ask your questions, this is however not a time for long declarations but you can use the autograph sessions for this.
Due to the sanitary situation still pretty unstable, please really think about simple poses and avoid accessories.
We are reminding you that you are not authorized to resell or exchange your extras.
Gifts can be offered during the autograph only.
We are reminding you it’s strictly forbidden to film, either during panels, photo ops, autographs, panels or in the hallways. It’s also forbidden to take pictures of the actors if they are not on stage or during the private session. Sanctions will apply: at the second time during a panel, you will be excluded from this panel. At the third time during the weekend, you will be excluded from all panels of the weekend.
At the second time filming or taking pictures during photo ops, autographs or in the hallways, your extras will be cancelled without refund.
In addition of the printed version you will get at the convention, the digital version of your pictures will be available at our shop, you will have to fill a form and all your pictures will be send in HQ per email so you can print these on posters, or simply if you do not own a scanner and want your pictures on your computer. Digital versions will be sent according to your pass.
If you want an additional version of your printed photo op, it’s available at our shop for €5.
Approved autograph pictures will be available from €3 to €5 starting Friday at our shop.
You will also get an exclusive A3 poster for free with all the actors included.
This is now the last week of preparation for us, we have a lot of work and we hope you will understand we won’t be as much available on social medias or by email.
