DragonCon 2017 featured such great cosplay and costumes, that we had to break it down into two separate sections. Here for your enjoyment is part two of that amazing week-long cosplay party known as DragonCon. With record-breaking attendance, there were characters from literally almost everywhere.
Last year, we had the opportunity to attend a few of the Comics and Popular Arts Conference panels at DragonCon, and talk with Johnathan Flowers, Ph.D Candidate, about comics, games and fandom, regarding how they stack up with respect to representation, diversity, and myth-building. We continue our chat this year.
DragonCon 2017 featured the largest attendance on record, with over 80,000 people packing into downtown Atlanta. Many of them sported costumes, making up some of the best cosplay we have ever seen. We captured a small part of that wonderful showing.
Intrepid GiN Reporters Marie and Robert Brownhill not only reported on all the events at DragonCon this year, they also participated, making a costume coordination that somehow bridged the gap between Star Trek and Star Wars.
DragonCon is shaping up to be one of the most anticipated conventions on the circuit, and certainly one of the most prestigious and popular on the East Coast. With over 80,000 in attendance this year, our reporter dove in to the craziness and fun once again.
