Dragon*Con invades Atlanta... Andrew was there!

Dragon*Con is the largest multi-media, popular culture convention focusing on science fiction and fantasy, gaming, comics, literature, art, music, and film in the universe! This year, just over 60,000 fans, guests and volunteers attended the 25th annual event over Labor Day weekend in Downtown Atlanta.

Andrew has attended each year for the last 13 years, and each year he talks someone else in the office into attending the parade that marches through a mile of Downtown Atlanta in costumes or coming down to visit for part of the weekend. We all enjoy bits and pieces of the excitement, from checking out the costumes to playing games and meeting actors, artists and authors.  Here are a few of the photos that Andrew had taken this year:
Andrew with Felicia Day - Andrew volunteers as part of the Dragon*Con Security staff, in the Operations department. One of the perks is the opportunity to meet some of the guests in a casual setting. Here he is backstage with Felicia Day, most popular for her work in TV shows “Buffy the Vampire Slayer”, “Eureka”, and “The Guild”; as well as the immensely popular Joss Whedon production “Dr. Horrible’s Sing Along Blog”.
Little guys even like Dragon*Con - Little Captain America - Many people enjoy creating a costume to wear of one of their favorite pop culture icons, and the excitement is always best to see a little kiddo wearing their costume and enjoying seeing all the other neat costumes. It’s also a great opportunity to start making plans for your Halloween party

P.S. - Have you ever dared to attend Dragon*Con or something similar?!
