If you’ve never been to a comic convention, or anywhere with some kind of celebrity appearance, then you may not know the outlandish cost of celebrity autographs. From the outside it might seem like celebrity appearance costs shouldn’t exist; that actors make enough money from their “jobs,” and that they don’t need bilk their fans out of even more cash. But some actors would rather be doing anything else than hanging out with their fans, and some of the smarter celebs know that their fame may not last, so why not make some quick cash for taking photos while they can still charge a ton of money?
How much does it cost to hire a celebrity? It depends on whom you’re trying to rent and for how long, but the short answer is a lot. The cost of celebrity appearances starts somewhere near five months of rent and only climbs from there, so think wisely about whom you want to show up at your birthday party. Can you really afford Kim Kardashian? Or is you bank account nudging you towards Lindsay Lohan? Maybe you could just hang out with your friends instead!There’s a wide world of celebrities who can ask for a lot of money on the convention circuit. Some of them that you’ve heard of, and others who have made a tidy living off appearing in one beloved show before disappearing off the face of the earth. If you’re going to a local convention any time soon you might want to study these prices of celebrity appearances so you know what you’re getting into.
