DragonCon! First reports coming in...

Just a few pictures from the first night of DragonCon. It is going to take some work to adequately describe this phenomenon. But it will have to wait until DragonCon is over!  Imagine somewhere between 30 and 40,000 people roaming between five downtown Atlanta hotels, a huge percentage of them costumed or cosplaying. I probably got my picture taken fifty times last night, more if you count people who didn't ask and just snapped a shot (which is okay at DragonCon, you just get nicer pictures if you ask politely).

Reid posing with a girl in a stunning costume.

This girl was so sweet. She had worked at Disneyworld years ago and played Minnie Mouse. She asked to be photographed with me, and actually loved my costume. I thought hers was adorable, too. In the Steampunk genre, and I loved the idea she had of hanging silver teacups, creamers, etc on her belt. It really was well done.

More to follow!


  1. What on earth?! What are you dressed as?

  2. Abby, neither of those girls are me. The Japanese one with Reid is a Kabuki Theater type costume. I'll be posting some of me later, but I just got some terrible news about the death of a friend's husband, so it seems wrong to be looking all happy right now...
