GUEST EXPERIENCES

Get the chance to meet the talented voice actors behind your favorite characters!

AUTOGRAPHS

Autographs can be purchased directly from the Guest’s table in the Signing Area of MGSCON.

Please see our table map for guest locations. 

HOW DO AUTOGRAPHS WORK?

Guests will be charging for autographs, item singings, photos and any other advertised services at their individual tables. MGSCON will not be selling tickets beforehand and autograph sessions will be on a first-come first-served basis.*

Some guests may provide an item such as a poster to be signed, but this is not guaranteed. Attendees are responsible for providing their own items to be signed.

WHERE DO I STAND IN LINE?

Autograph lines will be clearly marked in the signing area. 

*Kickstarter backers with priority signing will receive a wristband at registration upon checking in. In the Signing Area there will be a designated priority line. Please have your wristband visible for MGSCON staff to facilitate the lines.  

WHAT ITEMS CAN BE SIGNED?

All items are subject to the guest’s approval - do not bring inappropriate or explicit items to be signed.  Attendees are recommended to bring at least one backup item in the event their item of choice cannot be signed. MGSCON staff may veto any item as unsuitable for signing, and such decisions are final.

HOW MANY ITEMS CAN I GET SIGNED?

Each guest table will have individual pricing and information.

CAN I BRING GUESTS A GIFT?

If you have a gift you wish to present a guest, please first inform MGSCON signing area staff to get it reviewed for safety purposes. Please note that outside food and drink is prohibited in the event space. MGSCON staff may veto any gift and such decisions are final.

Autograph sessions are subject to change or cancellation at any time without notice.

MISC. GUEST FAQ:
  • If you encounter a guest roaming the convention, try to make eye contact before you approach them, and look for a sign that it’s okay to chat. Please don’t interrupt meals or private conversations.

  • We ask attendees to be respectful of the guests time. Unlike MGS cutscenes, please keep lengthy comments (or codec conversations) to a minimum.

  • MGSCON makes no guarantees that the guests will be at their tables for the entirety of their scheduled times. Even Snake has to take a break once and a while.
