The scene at the 2008 Dragon*Con parade

Rather than fight the football crowds in Athens today, I rambled over to Atlanta for the annual parade of Dragon*Con attendees and guests. I still haven't attended that convention, but this was a chance to check out the fans in costume strutting their stuff. My favorite moment was probably when the legion of Firefly fans, the Browncoats, marched by singing "Hero of Canton" from one of that show's memorable episodes. Needless to say, there was a lot of eye candy:

Adam West. Superstar.

Captain Marvel, X-23, Captain America, Hawkgirl, Lois Lane, Hellboy

Green Lantern Corps

Frank Miller's 300

Firefly fans love Jayne Cobb (and his hat)

Alien nation

Who you gonna call?

They hope you will enjoy the show

The love bug

Still can't aim for shit

Porkins loves you!

Dragon*Con continues in downtown Atlanta through Monday.

Not Super Girl, but Lois Lane, as depicted in All-Star Superman issue three.

Thanks! I've read that issue but didn't make the connection. The outfit didn't ring a bell.

I will if I'm in town. I'm usually at a convention for work over Labor Day weekend, but typically get back on Sunday. Didn't go this year though.
