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


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.
