> What will your Covid policies be?
We will post of Covid restrictions/requirements closer to the event. (Most likely April) State and local Covid requirements are changing constantly, and we don’t want to make any decisions that may need to change at a later date. We are working with our legal team, and will release this as soon as possible. We intend to find out from our Guests within a month leading up to the event what they will each require for photo ops and autographs. (ie. masks, distancing, plexiglass separator, etc).
> When can I buy tickets for Howler Reunion 2022?
Tickets are now on sale! You MUST have an admission ticket in order to enter the event.
> Is Howler Reunion 2022 really going to be the last one?
Yes! Amy and Betsy have busy lives and these conventions take many hours of hard work. We intended to do one event, and this will be our fifth and final convention. It’s been a few years and we want to end on a high note. What better way than a reunion?
> Can’t you just pass it on to a Staff member or someone else who wants to take over?
Howler Con is a labor of love, and we’ve worked hard to make it a success. We wouldn’t want to walk away and leave it to anyone else, and we don’t think it would be the same without us.
> Will you sell Single-Day tickets?
Yes, due to demand, we have decided to sell Single Day tickets. Information will be released soon!
> I’ve purchased my tickets. What do I do now?
You will receive an email immediately following purchase with bar codes for your tickets. You will bring that barcode to registration at the event. You don’t have to give us the names on the tickets this year, and you can sell/give them to others. The barcode ticket MUST be presented at Registration, and it can only be used once.
> What is the difference between a Bonus Guest and a Regular Guest?
Bonus Guests’ autographs are not included with the Full Moon ticket package. They are only included with the Wolf Moon tickets. Keep an eye on our social media for any note of a Bonus Guest.
> Will there be photo ops at this convention?
Yes, there will be photo ops at the convention! You will be able to purchase photo ops during our general ticket sale. You must have an admission ticket to the event to get in the door. Photo Ops only will not get you in the doors.
> Can I have a friend in my photo op with me?
Two people can be in each photo op. You don’t both need a photo op ticket. If you want more than two people in the photo op, you can pay for extra people ($10 each) at the on site sales booth at the event.
> Can I order extra copies of my photo op?
You can order reprints of your photo op at the on site sales booth at the event for $10 each print.
> Can I have special poses during my photo ops?
Due to time constraints, if you want a hug, it must be part of your pose. No one can be lifted off the ground, neither Guest nor fan. Please don’t ask our Guests to pick you up or get on the ground. If you have a pose in mind, make sure it can be accomplished/explained quickly. Photo ops sessions are not the time to ask questions or get into a conversation with the Guests. We have a larger number of people to get through photo op lines this year, and we want to make sure everyone gets their photo. If we start running behind schedule, we may restrict special poses.
> Will I be able to purchase autographs?
Yes, you will be able to purchase autographs! Some of our ticket packages include autographs, but if you want more than what is offered, or you choose a ticket package that doesn’t include autographs, you will be able to purchase those during our general ticket sale. You must have an admission ticket to the event to get in the door. Autographs only will not get you in the doors. Each ticket allows you one autograph. If you would like multiple items signed, you would need multiple autograph tickets. We will provide Convention Books that include full-page photos of each Guest, or you can bring your own item to be signed.
> Will I be able to hug the guests?
Our usual response is that this decision is to be made by the guest and you may ask during photo ops and Meet & Greets, but out of respect to other fans and time constraints, it’s not allowed during panels or autograph sessions. However, right now, we will not know what the policy on physical contact or masks will be until much closer to the event. Check back closer to the event date for an update on this policy. Thank you!
> Can I have my autograph personalized?
We will allow name personalization unless we feel we are running out of time to get everyone through the lines.
> Can I give gifts to the guests?
Gifts are fine to give at the autograph tables and during Meet & Greets if it’s done quickly. It is not allowed during photo ops or panels. Please be respectful of other fans and don’t monopolize all of the Guest’s time. Keep in mind that the Guests have limited space for Gifts. Please consider donating to the Guest’s favorite charity instead of a gift.
> Can I purchase autographs, photo ops, meet & greets or party tickets without a ticket to the convention?
No. You must have a ticket package (‘badge’) in order to have admission into the convention, do convention activities and attend any panels.
> Are my tickets refundable?
Tickets are only refundable if the event is cancelled or if we have to change the dates.
> Can tickets be transferred or badges be shared with someone else?
Giveaway, free, and volunteer tickets can’t be transferred. You can sell your purchased ticket before the event by giving the barcode to another person, but Badges can’t be shared with anyone else. The person assigned the badge at registration is the sole user. Barcode tickets can only be used once. Sharing of your badge after registration is against Howler Con policy and will result in the forfeiture of the badge and removal from the convention.
> Can I purchase passes/photo ops/autographs/Meet & Greet’s on site when I get there?
Ticket packages will not be sold on site. We have a limited number of photos ops, autographs and meet and greets. If they sell out before the event, we will not be able to offer them at the convention. However, we will post on the website if an item is Sold Out. Please keep in mind that some of our packages already come with autographs.

> If I see a Guest walking around during the convention, can I stop them for a selfie or autograph?
No. Our policies state that you are not to stop our Guests as they are walking from one event to another. We are on a very strict time schedule and stopping for even one fan will put us behind. You will be prevented from stopping the Guests by their handlers and security team members.
> Can I take pictures with my own camera/phone during photo ops or autographs, or have my friends do it for me?
No photos will be allowed during the photo ops or the autograph sessions, other than those taken by our professional photographer and our Staff. You will be asked to put your phones away during photo and autograph sessions. If you phone is in your hand, we will assume you are attempting to take photos and/or videos and you will be asked to leave the room.
> Can I take videos during the panels?
No. Our policies state that there is to be no video recording, and anyone caught will be asked to leave the panel. Many of our Guest contracts require this of us. No videos are allowed during photo ops, autographs, Meet & Greets, or the party when Guests are in attendance.
