Tested’s Walking Tour of Dragon*Con 2015

We spent last weekend immersed in fandom and cosplay culture at Dragon*Con. For those of you who haven’t been able to make it to Atlanta for this annual show, Norm and Frank walk and talk through Dragon*Con’s hotels and public spaces to give you a sense of what it’s like to be at the convention!

  1. Ugh. that shadow trooper armor. I cant wait for my kit to show up in spring 2016! looking forward to seeing the rest of Frank and Norm’s armor build!

  2. Yeah the shadow trooper is pretty awesome, if I hadn’t already ordered the storm trooper armor I definitely would have ordered it.

    The con looks awesome too, I need to try and make it down there in a year or two.

  3. Superman You missed the part where they talked about the multiple tracks of literally hundreds of panels? The parties?

    You’re hardly going to get a sense of the convention from a 15 minute walk through at 11am on a sunday.

  4. The amazing thing about the Fury Road cosplay is that it’s all brand new. It didn’t exist at all last year, and it was immediately embraced.
