I’m nowhere near pro when it comes to photos but I still wanted to share some of my favorites from this year.

This is an example of something unique to DragonCon and that is the Cult of the Carpet. It’s based around that circular tiled pattern that used to be the Marriott carpet pattern (they changed it) that has taken off on its own to a whole genre of costuming. People integrate the pattern into various cosplay of all kinds.

This Aladdin and Abu “flew” around on a carpet made over a one-wheel. Abu loved the attention.

One of many amazing wheelechair costumes.

Here we have Kiki’s Amazon Delivery Service. Her quote: “I got bought out”. Sadly, I did not get a photo of StarBucky (Starbucks + Bucky Barnes)

For you Doctor Who fans, here we have Bobross. (Bob Ross + Davros)

A gorgeous Hela.

Sorry so blurry, but this Jack Black cosplayer was such a perfect match. Vanillope is very good too.

Never thought I’d see this one cosplayed, but here’s Chairface Chipendale from The Tick.

A really beautiful Pearl.

I’m sure others have more and better shots, bit I still wanted to share. Had an amazing time.
