The 21 Most Ridiculous Cosplays You’d Only See At Dragon Con
Every con has their own weird quirks and attractions. San Diego Comic-Con, for example, is where all the big celebrities and stars go to promote their new movies; New York Comic Con always has awesome panels and events for “The Walking Dead” fans; and Emerald City ComiCon is known for being super progressive.
But Dragon Con, the annual fan-led event that’s taken over Atlanta, Georgia every year since 1987, is a class unto its own — especially when it comes to the cosplay. This past weekend, things got super weird in the best was possible at the Atlanta Marriott Hotel. Here are some of the most insane costumes to come out of this year’s convention.

This is how bonkers a place DragonCon is—even the (now former, sob!) carpet at the hotel is used as fodder for cosplay.

Remember how Hayley Atwell joked that she’d love to play the Doctor in “Doctor Who?” This cosplayer sure did.

My first pro photo from Dragoncon! I'm so incredibly happy with how this came out. This is my Katniss' Catching Fire-inspired parade dress. All handmade by me and a most excellent team a couple years ago (but I just found the wig recently to put it all together).

Do they sell this dress somewhere because I NEED IT.
