I'm a brand new member and brand new to buying autographs, so forgive me if this has been discussed elsewhere:
Could you please recommend as many sellers/dealers as you can for film-related autographs? I'm mainly into horror, but will happily check out non-horror too.
I'm aware there's PLENTY of frauds, hence joining this site and asking some experts!
I'm based in the UK, but I don't mind where recommendations are based.
Thank you in advance, folks! :)
p.s. They're for personal collection, not resale (in case you needed to know).
Hi Chris and welcome to AL.
If you have a look at the groups section at the top of the page there is a horror section, also keep a look out on the buy & sell section for pieces that come available.
I am also based in the UK.
Going to conventions is a good place to get horror autographs, if you don't already.
Also, official websites are a good source. However, there's never a 100% guarantee they are genuine, though.
I got Robert Englund's autograph last year and have a couple of Robert and also met him in his Freddy makeup for a photo shoot - a great memory for me. I am also based in the UK.
Thanks a lot, Robin. :)
I get to go to a few conventions and fests myself too (I run my own horror site), but, weirdly, I've only just got the bug to collect my own autographs, and missed a LOT of opportunities (idiot!)! :P
I'm playing catch-up!
You're welcome mate - There will be other opportunities to get the autographs/photos you missed.
Last year was my very first convention and I am not always confident in travelling by myself, being by myself, but it was a great event, if a little crowded and the picture with Robert Englund is a memory for a lifetime and doubt he'd do it again, which is a shame as to many, he is the original Freddy.
Was also great to meet Neve Campbell as I am a MASSIVE Scream fan as well - great film series. Sigourney Weaver was also present.
A great event and hopefully will get to some more, soon.
I would like to see your horror website as well.
Wow, sounds a great event, man! And nice one for getting yourself out there! :) Remember the many good experiences over the few not-so-good and you'll be fine.
My site is www.TheSlaughteredBird.com
I'm based in Liverpool. We don't get many fests/cons up north! :P
Yeah LFCC 2015 last year was fabulous - expensive but worth it.
Thanks for sharing your website :) There are some cons in or around Liverpool but the big ones always seem to be in the Capital or there and there abouts, which is a shame.
Yeah, the best ones seem to be down south, which makes sense really.
The odd decent con/fest creep up here, so hopefully that continues. :)
A good con has started in Sheffield recently and I'm starting my own in May next year.
No problem re sharing my site - the more visitors the better! :P It's non-profit and voluntary (the contribution) but we do okay.
Good to see that the North are catching up :)
Will be great to see how your convention goes - maybe get a few guests along, if possible - :-)
Last year, I think we were a bit spoilt in London due to the high calibre of guests, which is maybe a bit unusual, which is why I didn't think this year's event was as strong. Also, one or two of the big hitters cancelled, sadly.
Just been for a visit to your site - very nice indeed.
All the best for the convention !
Thanks very much for checking the site out! :) The more the merrier! :P
Speak soon... and if you come across any good places to grab horror autographs please let me know!
You're welcome Chris - if you let me know what you're into, I might be able to help :)
Anything horror really (providing it's good! :P). Do you sell items yourself?
p.s. For some reason I can't reply to your messages, I have to reply to my own and hope you see them!
