'Star Trek' Cosplay Shines at Dragon Con 2019

With upwards of 80,000 attendees annually, Dragon Con is one of the world’s largest genre entertainment conventions. Held each Labor Day weekend, Dragon Con consumes downtown Atlanta inhabiting five hotels, a trade center, and the city streets themselves, which are thronged with science fiction, fantasy, gaming, and comic books enthusiasts from around the world and every walk of life.

In contrast to many large conventions of similar size, Dragon Con maintains a reputation of being primarily “by fans, for fans”. This is reflected in the variety and quality of cosplay at the con, which has become famous in fan circles for the often spectacular creations on display. Star Trek is always well represented, and 2019 was no exception.
