Costume & Fashion Highlights from Dragon Con 2017

Dragon Con is a pop culture event that runs nearly 24-hours a day for 4 days. Now in its 31st year, attendance passed 80,000. And while there are a variety of programming options, Dragon Con is also a great place to see a lot of people in costume and wearing outfits inspired by their favorite fandoms.

This year it was harder to tell if one costume was more heavily represented than the rest.  Below are some of the highlights from what I found. From Doctor Who to Game of Thrones, Star Wars to Wonder Woman Dragon Con welcomes costume and cosplay from all ages.
