Over 85,000 people attended 2019’s Dragon Con in Atlanta and as usual most of them were in costume. This sprawling fan-run show in its 33rd year provides its participants a stage for 5 days to go all out and have fun with a wide variety of fandoms.
This year I took photos at all different times of day, in all different lighting situations, sometimes with 5 seconds to get the photo and sometimes with upwards of twenty minutes. And as always I would have loved to capture even more. So enjoy a very tiny sampling of costumes and cosplay Dragon Con attendees wore this year while celebrating characters, stories, and concepts they love.
