Rules as given by Kinetic Vibes regarding the extras:

AUTOGRAPHS

The actors will be seated at a table and you will have the chance to get an autograph from them. Your extra ticket will be checked at the entrance and you will hand it to the guest’s assistant at the table.

This session is the only one where you are allowed to give presents or letters to the actors and talk to them a little.

Each extra is valid for one use only. You can’t ask for multiple autographs if you have bought only one extra ticket. You cannot ask to get two different photos/items signed. You can’t ask for personal messages on a photo/item if you received your autograph on another. Every activity is one extra.

No selfies during the autograph session.

No audio/video recording.

No hugs unless they are initiated by the actors.

You are kindly asked to limit your chatting to make sure everyone can have their moment with their favorite guests.

PHOTO OP

Photo Op means Photograph Opportunity and it is your chance to take a picture with your favorite actor/actress. A professional photographer will take a picture of you and that image will be printed and delivered to you during the convention – the printed copy is included in the price. You can choose between the photo with a single actor, the photo Duo (two actors), Trio (Three actors) or the Group photo. You can get the digital versions of your photos at the price of 2 euros each. During the Photo OP session, it is not allowed to disrespect the guest’s privacy and request poses with inappropriate touching:

No to any kind of kisses.

No awkward poses.

No inappropriate lifting.

You are allowed to give the actors a quick hug after you asked for their permission or if they initiate it
With a respectful behaviour, you won’t run the risk to ruin the event for everyone. Every guest has specific poses that they would rather not be requested to perform, so our staff will inform you before your turn if that’s the case. Please do not abuse the guest’s kindness and please respect their boundaries.

Any violation of these rules will result in your immediate exclusion of the event. In order to take a photo with a friend, both of you must have purchased the same extra (up to 2 people, not more).

MEET & GREET

At the Meet & Greet, a group of 15-20 people will have the chance to meet the guests, chat and ask them questions. It is strictly forbidden to use mobile phones, especially not for selfies or audio recording. Inappropriate use of mobile phones will result to you being asked to leave the event.

All the extras can be bought only if you already bought a pass. The extras are limited. You can purchase 2 extras at a time for photo OPs and autographs, but only one at a time for the Meet & Greets.

Extras that will not be sold out online are going to be available for sale on site during the convention. The limited number of extras is due to our contracts with the actors and official needs. If we allowed unlimited tickets, we wouldn’t have time for other activities such as panels.

FANBOOKS

Kinetic Vibe is allowing one fanbook per actor, except for Matthew, who is getting two. If you want to do a fanbook, you need to get permission from the promoter. However, you can always contribute to the fanbooks that are already being organized.

These are the fanbooks that are currently being organized and have already been permitted by Kinetic Vibe:
Matthew Daddario: @patronusmatthew and @daddariocows
Alberto Rosende: @lethalsoufflee
David Castro: @alecismyiratze
