Are you ready for Izumicon? As you plan out what autographs you want, remember that different guests have different policies for their autographs- we've compiled a handy list for all of them so you can make sure you are prepared and decide ...what you want from whom. 
*Also please note that Izumicon does not set these autograph prices or policies, it is set by the actors and their agents. Izumicon does not receive any percentage of these autographs, and we will not tolerate anyone being disrespectful towards the actor, their agents, or our volunteers.

Gaze in the mirror and what do you see, 
Shatters and shards of what's meant to be? 
Reflections - can you trust them? 
Reflections - can you hide? 
Flitting through the mirrors and the memories of your mind.

 Reveal your reflection at Izumicon 2014!
