One of the coolest parts of DragonCon is the amazing costumes that people come up with. From the professional to the enthusiastic amateur, they all come together at this most wonderful of conventions. Come and see some of the best ones we found at the 2015 show. We’ve done our best to tap deep into our geek roots to identify each one, but if we got something wrong, please let us know. Enjoy the show as recorded by Marie Bronwhill at DragonCon 2015.
It’s Xena and Gabrielle making the rounds again!
If Link were a hipster, this is what he would look like. Where is Trevor Phillips when you need him?
This Nazgull cosplayer was dedicated. He even used molded sheet metal in his costume.
Our reporter loved this Siren from Borderlands 2 because its who she plays in that excellent game.
Wow. Meet Maiev Shadowsong from World of Warcraft.
It’s Lewis from Ghostbusers, and this cosplayer sure looked like Rick Moranis.
We found him! Waldo is always a popular cosplay, but this time, Marie was able to capture a shot of him surrounded by folks on an escalator. It’s like a scene out of the books, and her favorite photo of DragonCon 2015.
Captain Canada Deadpool–because why not?
Wasp helps Gambit adjust her wings.
An Ood on a phone. Even the Ood need a moment in this crowd!
One of the best Willy Wonka representations we’ve seen.
It’s the Little Mermaid and her Pirate captor, or perhaps guardian. This was real dedication.
Here Cosplayer Blaze takes on the role of Lady Loki, and takes time out for a text, from Thor perhaps?
In all this crazy sci-fi costumes, we have to love the sweet and beautiful Mary Poppins.
Riddle me this, how cool is the Lady Riddler?
A blast from the past in the form of “I Dream of Genie.”
Terry Farrell; this was an amazing panel.
Tentacle Kitty in all its glory.
Beautiful costumes from the Wizard of Oz – Glinda and Elphaba. Are you a good witch or a bad witch?
This was a fun one. It’s a My Little Star Wars cosplay group!
This lemon is sweet. It’s Big Hero Six’s Honey Lemon.
This is a beautifully done Duela Dent from a beautiful cosplayer. In fact, we liked her so much we made her the cover image for this gallery. Nice job Ms. Dent!

A Wizard from the Magicka game!

The Tick and Arthur, because they’re awesome.
A fascinatingly done Cheshire Cat.
The robot B-9 from Lost in Space, and this guy could move and speak!
Okay, obscure reference time, but we think we nailed it. She is the girl from the space diner in the Fallout New Vegas load screens. Their pies are out of this world! And wash it down with some cold Nuka-Cola.
This League of Legends character was nearly seven feet tall!
Mixed game warning. Here characters from The Witcher 3 join a vault dweller from Fallout.
All hail the mighty Hawkgirl.
In the accuracy category, you would have to include this Scooby Doo cosplay group. Please give them a Scooby-Snack for being so deliciously awesome.
As you can plainly see from these awesome photos, DragonCon continues to be one of the best conventions, certainly on the East Coast, for costumes and cosplay. If you are anywhere near the Atlanta area, do yourself a favor and consider joining the fun in 2016.
