Where else can you go to get your Star Wars, Star Trek, Tolkien, Wheel of Time, Dr. Who, Steam Punk, Harry Potter, Superhero, Comic, Gaming and Pirate fix? (Whew!) Why Dragon*Con, of course.
What’s donned as the largest sci-fi and fantasy convention in the world, or Disneyland on crack as I like to call it, is a four-day adventure into the deepest depths of Nerdvana. There’s almost too much to see, from art to panels galore to celebs and much, much more. The good news is that there are shorter lines than some of the other Cons (ehem, you know I’m talking to you Comic-Con), and you actually have a chance of getting to see what you came for.
However, despite the geek overload, I went (primarily) for one thing: COSTUMES! Here are the multitudes of photos I took from the parade, costume contest and creations seen wandering the hallways.
Stay tuned for Dragon*Con video highlights, plus more photos of The Wheel of Time and True Blood!
PS. I was kidding about Comic-Con (not). We attended that too. In case you missed it, be sure to check out our special Comic-Con episode.

As a costume designer, I often find myself scouring the Internet for ideas, reference designs, and other incredible costume geniuses who will inspire my own work. One day, when I was researching wings for my latest creation—the Sorceress from He-Man—I stumbled across a gold mine. Her name is Yaya Han, and to put it quite simply, she’s one of the best costume designers I’ve ever seen. Period.
You don’t have to take my word for it, start scrolling and see for yourself. Once you’ve gotten a taste, be sure to visit Yaya Han’s official website. There’s so much more!
Note: Any photographs taken from this site must be credited to Yaya Han and the photographers associated with each photo. Thanks!
