Enjoy some off-key moments and other random curiosities seen during the incredibly geeky Dragon Con that went on during Labor Day weekend in Atlanta.
There's a lot of costume play (also known as cosplay) going on at Dragon Con, a massive multi-genre convention held yearly in the southeast US, but there's a lot more to the show then just people in outfits posing for pictures. We've spent several galleries displaying various jaw-dropping and amusing cosplay outfits from video games, cartoons, comic books, and other geeky avenues of entertainment, but this gallery looks at some special moments that occur during the show. We've also sprinkled in some other interesting off-key captures, crowd shots, and other fun pictures that didn't precisely fit in with our previous galleries. Click on through the gallery to see everything from Billy Dee Williams (better known as Lando Calrissian) to superhero love and other special moments from one of the geekiest conventions in the world.
Billy Dee Williams, who played Lando Calrissian in "Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back," looks over at the camera after concluding a discussion panel on the movie and his involvement with the franchise. Stay tuned for a post that talks more about his comments during the incredibly candid conversation.
While wandering the halls of Dragon Con, I couldn't help but stop after seeing this unique Batman and Robin duo taking a rest during the show. The caped crusaders, portrayed by Andrew Tischler and Brent Wright, happily agreed to a photo.
People portraying Han Solo and Princess Leia Organa eat dinner after a busy day at Dragon Con. The Han works at a nearby bar in Atlanta called the Diesel Filling Station, but he didn't meet Leia there.
A group of heathens from the Middle Ages (or perhaps the J.R.R Tolkien universe) descend an escalator would normally disrupt any social situation, but it's just another random moment seen at Dragon Con.
Even though "Star Wars" costumers often seek movie-accurate outfits, Dragon Con also hosted many unique variations of the famous garb seen in the films. Meet DJ Boba Fett, the black and gold stormtrooper, and Lady Boba Fett.
A couple of Yip Yips, a famous Martian duo from Sesame Street, descend onto Dragon Con. I happened to capture this unique moment when they looked at one another after being surprised by a passerby's comment.
