A Russian nuclear technician from HBO’s Chernobyl.
Previously on Midlife Crisis Crossover:
For years we’ve been telling friends in other states that we’d one day do Atlanta’s Dragon Con, one of the largest conventions in America that isn’t in California or New York. We’ve been in Atlanta, but we hadn’t really done Atlanta. Hence this year’s vacation, in which we’re aiming for a double proficiency in Atlanta tourism and over-the-top Dragon Con goodness…
…and thus we arrive at our final D*C costume gallery. From the badge pickup on Thursday afternoon to the last cosplayer we caught at the Peachtree Center food court on our way out Saturday, ’twas a merry assortment of wardrobes and wearers. Our own modest collection here on MCC is but a fraction of a fraction of a fraction of a fraction of a fraction of a fraction of a fraction of a fraction of a fraction of a fraction of a fraction of a fraction of a fraction of a fraction of the total cosplay on display among the tens of thousands of attendees and passersby. The fun thing about so many folks sharing their own cosplay pics is you’re guaranteed never to see the same lineup twice.
Rough Rider Teddy Roosevelt before he became the 26th President of the United States of America.
Sir Hammerlock, pesky space zoologist from the Borderlands series.
Groucho Marx, certified film legend.
Fellow cigar aficionado Mr. Freeze. His favorite kind? ICE CUBANS.
Eddie Valiant, P.I. Mo’ bunny, mo’ problems.
Cliff Clavin and Norm Peterson hanging out in Artists Alley because Cheers is too long a walk from here.
…between the smoking and the drinking, that’s a lot of substance abusers up there. Huh.
Anyway, now a short intermission for a few costumes we photographed that looked cool, but we failed to identify. As always, input and elaborate backstories are most welcome. Thanks in advance!
I thought this looked great, but she’s neither Moon Knight nor Sailor Moon.
Neither the Iron Giant nor Driller from Descender…
Possibly Amaterasu or a friend thereof.
Mod Podge Gloss is an acrylic paint sealer, but we saw no booths selling it. Not sure if this is a D*C in-joke or if someone just really loves art supplies.
Brothers in bottles: these two pitchpeople for legal energy boosters were the very first cosplayers we encountered on D*C turf, around the corner from the badge pickup ballroom.
Deadpool in a onesie watching the other Deadpools on parade.
Thundra, an otherdimensional Marvel ’70s hero, choking a dude out while co-creator Roy Thomas stands by and laughs.
Tabitha the evil Fairy Godmother from The CW’s Legends of Tomorrow.
Splinter, on sabbatical from teaching Turtles tricks.
A cadre of Visitor guards standing by at the Jane Badler/Marc Singer V panel on Friday.
The nefarious Dr. Eggman from the world of Sonic the Hedgehog, suspiciously lurking.
Stray participants from Michael Scott’s Dunder Mifflin Scranton Meredith Palmer Memorial Celebrity Rabies Awareness Pro-Am Fun Run Race for the Cure. They’re probably in the lead.
Peter Parker, the amazing Bag-Man in a one-shot moment from Amazing Spider-Man #258. Long story if you don’t know it, but the short version is this was all Venom’s fault. And partly the Human Torch’s.
Doctor Who meets peaceful landscapes in the mashup world of Bob Davross. Revenge is a dish best served with happy little trees painted on it.
Bob Davross was also the centerpiece of this magnificent PBS group cosplay. Featured players include Carmen Sandiego, There’s Waldo, two organic Bob Rosses, four Mister Rogers (two of whom are Avengers), and the wonderful whimsy of Reading Rainbow.
Pennywise, star of IT Chapter 2, now in theaters!
