I Love a Parade, Vol. II

As I mentioned last post, I enjoy a good parade.

And last weekend, we finally attended one we've been wanting to see since we moved here, the Dragon*Con Parade.

For those of you not familiar, Dragon*Con is maybe the largest (I have no idea) gathering of sci-fi/fantasy/video game/ comic book aficionados.

I've never been a big sci-fi or fantasy fan, but I am a fan of creative people in elaborate costumes.
Anyway, I have no idea who a lot of the characters are, but I am really impressed with the talent of the costume people. (please don't make me say "cos-players")


 
 This pretty much seems like Dragon*Con in a nutshell. A Star Wars jedi (I think)  LARPing with a 300 Gladiator. (probably)




No idea.


Even less idea. 



My favorite costume of the day -- Big Boo!



The Flying Spaghetti Monster



And speaking of blasphemy. . .


Mister Hat!


Pretty sure this is Lord of the Rings.





Um, Barrel People?
 
The Men in Black make themselves useful and arrest Jar Jar Binks.


The World's Second-Littlest Ghostbuster


  
See?


  
It wouldn't be an Atlanta parade without the Box Heroes!


  
Or the Box Star Wars guys


Stormtroopers in kilts, because why not?


  
This would appear to be a woman walking a dinosaur.


  
Don't know what this is, but it gave me nightmares for a week
 
 

  
 Same deal.
 

  
Go, Speed Racer, Go!


 

  
na na na na na na na na Batman!
I guess that's enough for now. Maybe I'll post a few more tomorrow.

I don't get this either, but to each his/her own.

What a fabulous parade -- I'd have loved to see this too. And Big Boo -- Yay! Be still, my beating heart! And those "barrel people" are Thorin Oakenshield's dwarves from "The Hobbit" movie. Love the Flying Spaghetti Monster, may Sauce be upon Him.

More, more, please.

This reminds me of the annual Do Dah Parade of Pasadena. http://pasadenadoodahparade.info/
