Dragon Con is THE con for cosplay; it’s a con where if you aren’t in costume, you feel out of place. Here is a small sampling of some of the awesome costumes these talented folks have put together this year. I’ve put here a few to get you started, then click into the gallery for more.
Meeping Angel and the Doctor Honey-who. This was my favorite cosplay of the entire con,
possibly my entire life.
Disco Storm Trooper. I love how Storm Troopers are the ultimate blank canvas.
A fantastic Moana.
Really impressed with this Aquaman
Bastian from The Neverending Story
Big Trouble in Little China
The Birds of Prey
The guy was hilarious
The Marriott carpet is the most popular symbol of Dragon Con with attendees, so lots of folks use it in costumes. I love this mash up with Harry Potter Quidditch uniforms.
