Many great guests are going to be announced for this year. Stay tuned and keep an eye on our website. Some guests may charge for autographs/photographs.
The guests at Anime Dallas are excited to meet you over the weekend! Many guests will have autograph tables at the convention. Some of our guests have contractual obligations that make it so they can not sign any autographs for free, while other guests may be able to sign more for free. The following guests are happy to sign one free autograph per person of an item that you’ve brought to be signed, such as a DVD or your program guide. These items must not be bootlegs, and some guests can’t sign Funko pop figures for free. The guests who are definitely offering at least one free autograph are: Monica Rial, Jamie Marchi, J Michael Tatum, David Wald, Jason Douglas, David Wald, Greg Ayres. Many of the other guests might also have free autographs, but please check out that guest’s autograph table or autograph session for confirmation first.
