    If you wanted more than one item signed, how much would additional items cost?

      To be honest Marc, it's not a question of how much it costs it's more making sure that everyone who wants a signature can get one. It's always our top priority to make sure as many people as possible can get a signature from an Anime Guest of Honour! But as there's only a finite amount of time available with the guests - and as we have discovered numerous times at past events being able to anticipate demand is extremely difficult - this is why the one signature rule is being enforced. It's only fair in our opinion to make sure everyone has a fair chance. You can take a chance of bringing more than one item with you if you want, but please know you will only be guaranteed one signature from each guest. Hope that helps. ^JG
