During one of the hottest days of the year, fans gather in Atlanta to don armor, fit into full body suits, and piece together some of the most jaw-dropping outfits ever imagined. Welcome to Dragon Con, a mecca for cosplayers and a home for those who love everything geeky. From movies to comics, you will see aliens walk past warriors and Avengers play board games with Stormtroopers. If you want to see what is happening in the world of cosplay, this is the place you need to go.
For nearly two decades now, some of the best costumers and cosplayers have shown off their craft in front of crowds of thousands. If you are someone who wants to be seen (or just watch from the sidelines), the Annual Cosplay Parade gives everyone a chance to strut their stuff on the asphalt catwalk in front of a crowd of hundreds. If you have the confidence and a decent pair of shoes, you could find yourself walking beside Pyramid Head or fight some spooks with a couple of Ghostbusters.
But you missed it. All of it. Dragon Con has come and gone, but luckily for you, we happened to find some of the best cosplay from the convention. There’s no need to weather the heat or even buy a ticket to see some of the finest cosplay on display at this year’s Dragon Con.
Who do you think won Dragon Con this year? What are you going to wear next year? Let us know in the comment section below or head over to our forums to share your own pictures from the event.
