The Best Cosplay From Dragon Con 2017

Dragon Con, held every year in Atlanta, has been running since 1987. It’s since grown to become one of the biggest nerd—and by extension cosplay—shows on the planet.

It went down last weekend, and below is a collection of video and images showcasing some of the best cosplay that was on display.

All photos by Anna Fischer, Mineralblu and Boon Vong, while the vid is by Mineralblu.

If you are/recognise any of the uncredited cosplayers, let me know and I’ll update!

DISCUSSION

Yet more unlabeled cosplay. Please put the name of the character or at *least* the game in the line, lest this become a gallery of “15% things I recognize and 85% I’d like to know more about but with no source it just becomes a bunch of colorful clothing people just so happen to wear”.
