For Day 3 (Saturday) of Salt Lake ComicCon 2014 Jan had managed to get a free day pass for Kristina and we went in a side door so Jan could use the rest room and managed to avoid lines and crowds all together. That was nice. The first thing we did was head toward Eliza Dushku’s booth, but she had stepped away and changed it so you couldn’t take photos and her autograph price went up. So we decided to do a photo op with her instead as it would save us some money. We tried to make it into John Barrowman’s panel but there were a thousand or more people waiting in line so we weren’t getting in. We decided to grab a bite to eat and hide from the madness in the Game Room for a bit.

Meeting Eliza Dushku
We then spent a half hour waiting in line for the photo op with Eliza Dushku. It was irritating and there was a really annoying guy behind us, but it was all worth it when she put her arm around me and said “Hello groovy people!” She’s so pretty, and so so tiny.
Meeting John Barrowman
As soon as we were done with Eliza’s photo op we rushed to the line for John Barrowman’s photo op. This one was incredibly long and people were already sitting because they’d been waiting a bit. We waited about an hour in that line before the fire alarm went off. Everyone kind of stood there looking at each other, but none of the volunteers or celebs were evacuating so we all stayed put. The girl in front of us said that her friends who were out to the front were being evacuated, so I walked up front to ask the staff. I said “Is this all okay? Are we fine staying put?” and he said “That’s up to you” with a sneer. So I said “Well you’re not going anywhere…” and he just shrugged and turned away. What a douche-but then we found out that they had faked the Fire Alarm in order to get some people out because they were over capacity. Shady shady. We did finally make it into get our photo-and I look awful, but John Barrowman is hot.
Catching Up With Cosplayers
While waiting in John Barrowman’s line our old pal Doug tapped me on the shoulder. He was over a ways in the line and we hadn’t seen him in years. This pretty Jasmine also came over to ask about what we were getting our photos done for, and I asked to take her photo.
Taking a Break in the Game Room
As soon as we got out of our photo op Kristina and Jan ran for some air (Kristina was beyond stressed by the crowds) and Ken and I waited for the prints. We then decided to head towards the Game Room because we needed a break and our legs were aching. He took off his wig and I had to get this hilarious photo of him enjoying it being gone, and the mark it had left.
We finally found Kristina and Jan again and we decided to get a couple of group shots before we called it quits.
