Beat Down Boogie’s Annual Dragon Con Cosplay Music Video

Maybe you’ve noticed the amount of sheer amazing cosplay during Dragon Con from the annual Labor Day convention in Atlanta, Georgia.

Dragon Con: A Regal of Wakanda Forever Cosplay

We’ve been sharing some pretty fabulous galleries of images from this year’s Dragon Con- the Atlanta, Georgia convention that takes place over Labor Day weekend. Next up on the docket is perhaps one of the most stirring; WAKANDA FOREVER. Just *try* not to be emotionally moved when standing in a group of citizens of Wakanda […]

Dragon Con: Where Star Wars and Star Trek Come Together

One of the best parts of Dragon Con is seeing the multiple fandoms coming together in costume. An example of this from 2018’s annual Atlanta, Georgia multi-day geek Mardi Gras is a mash up of Star Wars and Star Trek that makes perfect sense. Cosplayers Galacticat and her beau CGC Creative came up with this great pairing of a Hutt […]

Dragon Con: A Violent Delight of Westworld Cosplay

There were many guesses as to what “the costume” of Dragon Con was going to be this year, and almost no one picked Westworld. But obviously, enough fans DID pick Westworld, as this fabulous ‘violent delight’ of cosplay courtesy of Annette Wamser (of Wamser Photography) will show. Our particular favorite is the Delos cleaning crew with the […]

Black Geeks of Dragon Con: Fandom Comes in All Shades

Fandom comes is all colors, shades, nationalities, sexes, and peoples, especially at Dragon Con, which takes place over Labor Day weekend annually in Atlanta, Georgia.  The gathering of the Black Geeks of Dragon Con is one of [literally] hundreds of planned and organized cosplay photoshoots that happen during the convention, and this year it was particularly […]

Dragon Con: This Judgement of Dredd *IS* The Law

Nothing like turning a corner during Dragon Con and coming face-to-face with an impressive armored collection of “The Law”- a Judgement of Dredd. We’re still workshopping that collective noun too, but, anytime you see a group of Judge Dredd cosplayers all together, it can be intimidating. Scowls and leather are the name of the game […]

Dragon Con: A Habit of Handmaids, Under His Eye

Even though Hulu’s award-winning series The Handmaid’s Tale isn’t your typical convention fare, the red cloak and white bonnets were everywhere at Dragon Con this year. We’re thinking the collective noun of handmaids is a habit, but we’re still work shopping that. This collection of photos comes to us from Kristen Schlicht, who very kindly is […]

Cocktails Over Coruscant II: Star Wars Libations at Dragon Con

When Star Wars costumers get together at Dragon Con, it’s always an experience.

The Cocktails Over Coruscant [year two, actually] evening libation event is put on by the Imperial Officer Cosplay group; […]

A Raid of Vikings Invade During Dragon Con 2018

History’s Vikings continues to be a favorite for group cosplay at Dragon Con over Labor Day weekend in Atlanta Georgia, and 2018 was no different.

Dragon Con: ‘Orville’ Cosplay Crew Invades Star Trek 10 Forward Party

There is an ongoing joke that somehow, FOX series The Orville is an official part of the Star Trek universe. It makes sense really, kind of the same way that Galaxy Quest is often the answer to the question “What’s your favorite Star Trek movie?” In this case, a group of Orville crew cosplayers invading the Star Trek-themed party […]

Dragon Con: General Leia Cosplay That’ll Make You Cry

We’re still going through our mountains of images from this year’s Dragon Con (2018), the annual convention that takes place in Atlanta, Georgia.

Brian Henson Talks Netflix’s ‘Dark Crystal’ at Dragon Con

If you’ll recall, Netflix has a series from The Jim Henson Company on the docket which is currently in production based on The Dark Crystal. Which, of course, is what we wanted to ask Brian Henson about during his interview session at Dragon Con 2018. “It’s been shooting since last November — it’s so cool that […]

Brian Henson Offers Updates on His ‘Farscape’ Movie

Brian Henson hates to sound like a broken record, but he does want to assure fans that he hasn’t forgotten about Farscape. Two years ago, also at Dragon Con no less, Henson confirmed the longstanding rumor that he was indeed working on a Farscape feature film. Time has obviously passed since then, and while it’s still on […]

Dragon Con: 32 Photos from Jim Henson’s Creature Shop Challenge Live

One of the scheduled highlights that we knew we absolutely had to attend at Dragon Con this year was the LIVE Jim Henson’s Creature Shop Challenge.

Evangeline Lilly Eloquently Explains the ‘LOST’ Finale at Dragon Con

Actress and author Evangeline Lilly very eloquently explained the divisive finale of LOST during her panel at Dragon Con 2018, much to the delight of fans in attendance.

Pym, van Dyne Family Reunion with Evangeline Lilly at Dragon Con

If you have never attended Dragon Con in Atlanta Georgia over Labor Day Weekend, you’re missing out on an incredible contention experience.

Namely, the Q & A portion of the panel (which was moderated by the effervescent Tony Gowell and also included Squickerwonkers illustrator Rodrigo Bastos Didier). […]

Here’s How to Watch the Dragon Con Parade This Morning
