Dragon Con 2014 report
Dragon Con 2014 was truly a sight to see. Not only was it our first time at the event but is also one of the biggest celebration for cos-play, multi-media and fantasy. The convention is nearly spanning 30 years and it only seems to get bigger and bigger with an attendance of over 60,000 people this year. We had many questions and expectations but we thought Dragon Con succeeded in most places.
Tons of guest stars, costumes and merchant booths were there. The Con spanned across 5 connecting hotels, all of which were crowded at all times with attendees. Each hotel had different things to experience like merchants, art, celebs, music, and much more. There is said to be 3500 hours of panels, workshops, gaming, film festivals and the parade down Peachtree which we witnessed as well.
The night life of Dragon Con is also where the convention shines and without question has the most amount of people in costume we’ve seen in any con at one time. People come from all over to enjoy the festivities going on across the hotels, going to parties, taking pictures and let loose.
So much is going on and while the convention is three days long you can’t help but notice it is done in an instant. Dragon Con seems to be more about the people which is a good thing. Our overall experience was a good one this year and feel like we’ve only scratched the surface of what this Con has to offer.
