Fans of the hit Syfy shows The Magicians and Killjoys can rejoice! Even though Universal FanCon has been postponed indefinitely, several of the guests from both shows originally slated to attend the con will still be in Baltimore holding panels, meet & greets, and more this weekend! Kicking things off is a 12 am Infinity War screening on Thursday, April 26th at AMC Security Square 8 in Woodlawn, MD.

Showclix sent refund emails earlier yesterday for those that pre-paid for karaoke night and any autographs and selfies originally posted by FanCon. I am thankful that Schwartz was able to answer a few additional questions I had about what attendees can expect:
How many fans are you anticipating?
We are anxious to meet whomever will join us this weekend. We’ve worked hard to secure the biggest spaces we could find within walking proximity to the convention center that were still available on this short of notice.
Which company will be doing the photo-ops? Were they originally going to also do Fan Con?
Froggy’s Photos will be handling the photo ops.
UPDATE: Attendees can pre-purchase photo-ops here. Presale ends 11:59 pm MT Friday, April 27, 2018
Will selfies still be offered at the guest table as well as autographs both on Saturday and Sunday?
Selfies will be offered during Friday’s meet and greet event. Autographs will be available Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
Professional photo ops will be offered on Saturday & Sunday. Fans will be able to purchase their choice of solo photos, a Killjoys duo photo (featuring Sean & Tamsen), the men of The Magicians photo, the women of The Magicians photo), or a group Magicians photo.
Please note that Brittany Curran is only able to join us Saturday evening and all-day Sunday.
Will attendees have the ability to pay via credit card for any autographs and/or selfies on both days?
Will Protean Books & Records have enough of “The Magicians” trilogy novels for potential attendees to buy as an option to get autographed?
This is an excellent question and one that should be brought up to the people at Protean.
After tweeting at Protean Books & Records here was there response:
This all came together overnight, so I do not currently have sufficient copies of the books for the event. I’m hoping the guests will bring something to supply for the signing.

What made Protean Books & Records the venue to have Sunday’s activities? Where there any other locations in the running on such short notice?
Protean Books & Records is hosting us on Friday and Sunday. They have a large warehouse space already sent up to host signings, lectures and panels. Our goal was to find a space large enough to hold a crowd and that would allow Universal FanCon ticket holders the ability to enter free of charge. We got everything we could hope for with Protean Books & Records.
Will the Karoake backstage meet and greet still happen as planned for UFC?
The experience was to be part of the sound check before the party starts. Unfortunately, there’s no soundcheck or backstage at Mex Baltimore.
For karoake night, will fans be able to sing songs with the guests?
That is the intention, yes.
And, if nothing else, The Magicians will be there to encourage those who are a little timid or scared onstage (besides hosting and performing some numbers on their own).
Who can someone contact about volunteering to help coordinate the attendees, especially on Sunday?
They can tweet us @Lo_Mo_Pro or message Lo Mo Pro on Facebook and we will be in touch should we need additional assistance.
Who are you excited to see from both shows? Sound off below in the comments!
