Over 77,000 people attended Dragon Con in Atlanta this year for one of the biggest cosplay shows on the calendar.
Today marks the 20th anniversary of the release of Pokemon Red and Blue in Japan, and fans are celebrating by sharing their fondest Pokememories. Mine involve a kidnapping, complete with Polaroid shots and a magazine cut-out ransom letter.
Dragon Con—one of the biggest nerd shows on the planet—went down earlier this month, and three of the best cosplay photographers around were there to take some incredible shots.
And the best way to use a hands-free mini-segway? Hip-hop videos? Nope! With a little creativity it can be turned easily into Son Goku’s magical yellow cloud.
Distractotron shot this video at DragonCon, getting as many X-Men (and villains) together in the one place as they could. It's making me realise a live-action version of the 90s cartoon might not be the worst idea.
Dragoncon's got a reputation for being one of the better cons for cosplay, and this year's batch proves it. There's a few Youtube videos floating around taking some great highlights from last month's convention in Atlanta. If you're at all interested in the scene, these two videos are worth a look.
Videographer RealTDragon was in my backyard last weekend, using the power of his camera to cause Dragon Con cosplayers to burst a rousing chorus of "Ain't No Mountain High Enough." More of this, please.
Even though there's a growing business around the wares they create and parade, cosplayers rarely run into legal problems from the people who own the copyrights to the characters they're dressed up as. Which only makes this legal problem all the more absurd.
This year's Dragon Con was held over the weekend, and in attendance weren't just some of the world's finest cosplayers, but MLZ Studio, there to film it and give the world this great little video.
This year's Dragon Con—a large fantasy/science fiction convention in North America—is over, but that doesn't mean we can't enjoy the awesome outfits worn at the show. Thankfully, MLZStudio recorded some of the best cosplay of the con, and damn if it's not impressive.
This DragonCon 2012 cosplay compliation video by beatdownboogie is absolutely fantastic. Besides the fun cuts, in-the-moment poses/character acting and perfect music, I really enjoy the hundreds of impressive cosplayers featured above. And they're all having so much fun.
The sad tale of the closure of 38 Studios and Big Huge Games and the cancellation of the Kingdoms of Amalur becomes even more tragic with each new scrap of information on the massively-multiplayer game. That's why author R.A. Salvatore explaining the story behind the game at DragonCon earlier this month made me so…
Picture it: You're at DragonCon, enjoying the cosplay during a sunny break away from the con floor. Then yet another guy in a Commander Shepard outfit struts by. There's something different about him, though. He looks familiar. Kinda. Wait, that's the guy who actually plays the male version of Commander Shepard's…
You've had a year to play Gears of War 3 and you still haven't found all the Easter eggs. During the Gears of War panel yesterday at DragonCon in Atlanta, lead level designer Jim Brown teased a submersible secret, and told us of the drunken Dizzy Easter egg that didn't make it in.
A night of magic, of Thuggish Splicers, Little Sisters, Big Daddies and men who you wouldn't think twice about beating beyond recognition with a nine iron. It was a major BioShock photo op at Dragon*Con's Night at the Georgia Aquarium.
It's the fourth and final day of Dragon Con 2011, but I'm not there. The final day of a convention like this is a sad affair. Instead, let's revel in the glory of yesterday's cunning cosplayers.
My best camera lost its shutter button a year ago. My second best camera lost its button five shots into today's Dragon Con day one cosplay harvest. My third best camera was purchased at Wal-Mart a half hour ago.
It's not every day you find a Kotaku editor in downtown Atlanta. Normally I'm about 10 miles north, but for Dragon Con 2011 I'm making an exception.
