DragonCon 2011

So I hit up DragonCon twice this weekend. Seriously most amazing convention to come through Atlanta. As I arrive on Friday afternoon, I get to the Sheridan Hotel and blasting on the speakers is "This is Halloween" and as I consume everything around me and all the people in the most amazing costumes. I smiled and thought to myself... I am at the best place on earth right now!

I look forward to DragonCon every year. This is my 2nd year in attendance. Besides waiting on line for 2 hours for my ticket(s), and only catching the tail end of the parade, you learn something new every year. Note to self, pre-purchase my tickets online ahead of time.

The one thing I was looking forward to was possibly meeting Elvira. Unfortunately, Elvira was scheduled to come out at 8 p.m. on Saturday, at which time I was at the Erasure show. Hopefully she makes an appearance next year.

Other highlights included... Seeing my favorite fellow local haunter The Undertaker. Always a pleasure!

At the Netherworld booth I got some great photo ops with the guys. Even scored some coupons for this year. Netherworld is considered #1 haunt attraction in the US and it's right next door. How lucky am I?

This zombie was hard to resist. Quite the charmer.

Below are just some random shots. I only posted the monsters and left out the superheros. After all this blog is about halloween...

Final thoughts, if I plan correctly next year I would really like to get a 3 or 4 day pass, rent a room for a night or two, and go dressed as Vampira.

  1. I am so glad you posted these pictures! I've always heard great things about Dragon Con, so it's fun to see what's happening there. Looks like you met a lot of creepy gentlemen. :)

    Oh, and as far as your last post goes, I was just at Barnes and Noble leafing through the Halloween magazines the other day. Martha's was the best of what was there. Some of the other magazines featured desserts that were um...lacking in design. Martha's magazine had some impressive cake designs and costume tips.

  2. DragonCon is rather amazing. Held at 3 hotels in downtown Atlanta, starting Fri ending Mon Labor Day weekend. Always the same place every year. So much going on, and the costumes are out of this world!

    I haven't seen Martha's mag yet. :( When I was at Joann's 2 weeks ago they didn't have it. Nor my local Publix for the past 2 weeks. boooo! When I see it I will def grab it.

  3. Love the pics. Looks like you had a blast!

  4. Looks like a grand time! Plus you got to meet the Undertaker himself!
