Doctor Who, Star Wars, and steampunk ruled the cosplay world at this year's Dragon*Con in Atlanta, Georgia. But the long weekend had a large mix of costumers of every age. Check out some of the best costumes we came across.


There were quite a few female Daleks out and about, but this one took a unique spin on it representing the Ironsides.

Some people went with the easy costume, just wearing their own personal brain slug.

Some just decided to fix it in post. (The screen says "Costume to be added in post production.")


There were a million Merlot's waitresses. But my favorite were the women working the blood drive.

You could find nearly every character from Doctor Who, and almost every incarnation of the Doctor. Including this version of Ten with Adipose.

There were three Weeping Angels, and they were amazing. Luckily there were more than enough eyes on them that we didn't need to worry about blinking.

The best thing about Dragon*Con is that there's no discrimination when it comes to costuming or clothing. Wear what you want, be who you want. Steampunk? Sure. Goth? Go for it! Giant shiny wings? Wear it with pride.


Even the cosplayers were constantly taking pictures.

Some protesters did turn up though.
