Dragon Con Cosplayers Will Cosplay Anything

No entertainment property was beyond the reach Dragon Con's cosplayers in Atlanta this weekend, resulting in our 50-photo gallery featuring everything from Final Fantasy to Flo, the Progressive Insurance spokeswoman.

We could have taken cosplay photos for four days straight and still not captured all of the wonderful outfits visitors to this year's Dragon Con had to offer. Every time we stopped someone for a photo, two more costumes would pass by. Every time we turned around there were G.I. Joe characters, Star Wars bounty hunters, comic book heroes, science fiction heroes and villains, and many video game icons, just hanging about waiting to be photographed. Hell, we even found Waldo. Technically we found two, but one was eating, and we didn't want to disturb him.

In terms of video game cosplay, we've got a Black Mage, a few Final Fantasy characters, some Team Fortress 2 players, a handful of Marios, some World of Warcraft fans, and even a Ness!

Some of the non-gaming highlights include a team from N.C.I.S., Rufio from the movie Hook, some amazing Doctor Who costumes, steampunk Captain Marvel, the world's most adorable He-man, and my personal favorite, Flo from Progressive.

Special thanks to my fiancée/photographer Emily and her friend Alyson for their contributions to the gallery.
