10 Costumes from Day 1 of #DragonCon

Dragon Con is happening in Atlanta, Georgia, this weekend, and the four day convention is a sort of mecca for cosplayers. Of all the conventions I’ve attended, I’ve never seen one as focused on the art of costuming as Dragon Con. People arrive and start dressing up two days before the convention even starts, and they pull all out the stops. It’s the home for the most creative, obscure, clever, and elaborate costumes you can imagine. Here’s a sampling of ten costumes I spotted on the first day:
