Dragon Con 2016 Summary

It has been a few days since I’ve posted! I just got back from Atlanta, GA for Dragon Con 2016 and back to work I go. Oh, how Tuesday now feels like a Monday today *sighs*. But it was another awesome year of seeing many creative and clever costumes. Some of the ones that stood out to me the most were: Galactus-Deadpool mash up, Asajj Ventress from Star Wars, gender-bent Joker from Batman, Mysterio from Spider-Man, comic version of Ra’s Al Ghul with the League of Assassins, a very detailed Armored Batman from Batman v. Superman, an electrocuted rendition of Darth Vader from Return of the Jedi and some cosplays from Diablo. Based on what I’ve seen this year, the popular theme seemed to have been Pokemon and Harley Quinn with the Pokemon Go craze and the release of the Suicide Squad movie. Surprisingly, there weren’t as many Deadpools as last year. I had cosplayed as Ben Reilly-Scarlet Spider and was in the Superhero Costuming Forum Marvel photo shoot and the Spider-verse one on Sunday. From walking around all of the hotels, some of the popular cosplayers that I noticed were: Yaya Han, LeeAnna Vamp, Riddle, Hip-Hop Trooper and Lonstermash. This year I had stayed at Hotel Indigo which was built earlier this year. It was really nice inside and the rooms are spacious and bathrooms were  as well plus it’s conveniently located right on Peachtree Blvd. so it’s a short walk to the con hotels like the Hyatt and Marriott. It was good seeing some friends I made last year and making some new ones! Check out some of the photos I shot from Dragon Con and for more, visit my Flickr.
