The crowds thinned out slightly on the final day of Dragon Con. The host hotels are quieter, there’s more room to move and breathe, and several cosplayers take the day off or switch into more comfortable costumes – like dressing as Lois Lane, for example. Here are some outfits I spotted on the last day of Dragon Con and a few others from over the entire weekend:
Steampunk Buddy Christ
Chief Master Sergeant Walter Harriman, a.k.a. Chevron Guy
Prisoner from the Kyln – note the prosthetic leg
Agent Peggy Carter
Belle and Adam, a.k.a. Beauty and the Beast
GI Joe group
Iron Patriot and a zombie pirate princess
