Dragon Con 2021 took place amidst Covid-safe protocols. And some of the cosplay there was literally awe-inspiring!
The multi-genre and popular culture convention, Dragon Con, is the largest of its kind that exists. The five days long event with its panels, workshops, seminars and demonstrations, is an attempt to bring people from all walks of life who share a common love for gaming, science fiction, comics, literature, fantasy film and music, together.
The convention which had received more than 80,000 people in 2019, had, like every other convention and event, been cancelled in 2020, because of the Covid-19 pandemic that had brought the entire world to a standstill. This year, however, with health and safety protocols and measures in place, the convention was held with only 42,000 people in attendance.
Now, you might be wondering why we are talking about the Dragon Con when it has been more than a month, since it was over. Well, you see, we were browsing for cosplay ideas, with Halloween round the corner; we were looking for something apart from the same old costume ideas. That is when we came across this video by Mineralblu covering the different cosplayers at the convention.

Need we say that our minds were blown? So, we thought, why not bring to you, some of our favourite cosplays from the Dragon Con 2021 and let you decide for yourself if they really are mind blowing or not?
All images used in this post are by the Mineralblu. We have included the social media handles of the cosplayers and we urge you take a look at their other works as well.
With the world slowly opening up after facing the wrath of the Covid-19 pandemic, we hope to see more such events happening in the near future. Conventions such as the Dragon Con will go a long way in bringing together people, who have been isolated from each other for the better part of a year. These conventions can help people to not only get together, but provide each other with much needed comfort, support and companionship.
