Another year another Dragon Con is in the books. Dragon Con is still my favorite Con of any I have been to. It also helps that it is a homecoming for me since I am from Atlanta and it was the 1st Con I ever went to on my mother’s advice I might add. The weather was perfect everyday of the Con. Dragon Con is a Con for cosplayers and nerds alike. It is the best cosplay party hands down. It is a non-stop party comparable to Vegas! I challenge you to go and in the words of Sergeant Lincoln Osiris, “Survive!” The first night myself and @swaggycosplayer brought a party speaker and we set up to party in the Loft of the Marriott hotel and it was lit. So lit that the next night and every night after people were texting us to come and set up again because the DJ’s were not playing the best music. So each night DJ Swaggy had everyone turnt. I have some of the party footage in the overview video below. Due to the success of the pop-up parties we have decided to approach Dragon Con about hosting our own official parties next year. I was excited to speak with an interview Yaya Han but due to some scheduling issues this didn’t happen. Cosplay wise I debuted my Miles Morales/Joker mashup which was received very well and I can’t wait to do it upgraded again soon.
The photo shoots never seem to disappoint. Last year I participated in a couple shoots as a cosplayer but mostly as a photographer. This year I participated in the X-Men shoot as I cosplayed Nightcrawler and in the Marvel shoot which is always fun. Marvel didn’t disappoint and we got the chance to once again meet the prop maker for Marvel and held Loki’s scepter and the Infinity Stones. I had the power right in my hands. Dragon Con is a great place to make new friends and hang out with old friends. As always I missed some friends that I hope to catch next time around.
