The talent of Dcon 2023

Dragoncon 09.2023

The ask

Attempt to take a weekend off for once and showcase a wide variety of talented cosplayers to demonstrate the inclusiveness of Dragoncon.

The deliverables

Long story short, I also cosplayed (you can see my Expanse belter costume below) and the logistics of running around with a camera while having limited mobility and shoes that fit poorly wasn’t exactly a thrilling physical experience. That said, I was able to catch a tiny sliver of the 60k+ attendants present at Dcon this year.
