There's something about the costumes at Dragon*Con that sets this convention apart from all the others. The percentage of Con-goers who dressed in costume for Dragon*Con this weekend was truly impressive, but not as impressive as the costumes themselves.
Fans don't seem to settle for "good enough" at this con. The sewing, the makeup, the props, the attention to detail on the costumes at Dragon*Con is something that shines brilliantly year after year, and 2011 was no exception. Dragon*Con is a spectacle, that's for sure, but the only thing that's freakish about these attendees is their ability to make mind-blowing costumes.
