Dragon Con: Amazing costumes from the first day (pictures)
The biggest multi-genre convention in the Southeast US hosts some incredible outfits inspired by a wide range of geek culture. Don't miss these amazing and amusing costumes.
ATLANTA -- The vibe at Dragon Con, a four-day gathering that celebrates multiple geeky genres, would instantly feel like nirvana for any nerd. Aside from incredible guests, art, product bonanzas, and hundreds of panels discussing and celebrating everything from "Star Wars" to "Game of Thrones," there's another element to the show: people watching.
You could literally spend the entire show checking out all of the amazing costumes (also known as "cosplay") created by fans who trek from all corners of the US to share their incredible creations.
The Sharknado was one of the most popular costumes wandering around the circuit, inspiring laughter and countless photo opportunities by those passing by. The costume even spun around, causing further amusement.
No genre was off limits at Dragon Con, including parody films such as "Spaceballs." Barf, originally played by John Candy in the classic 1987 film and now seen here by Mighty Matt, looks dapper with his box of Milk Bones.
This unique costume seen at Dragon Con shows a different side of Tony Stark's Iron Man outfit -- the familiar futuristic user interface that filmgoers saw Robert Downey Jr. work with while inside the suit.
