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?

First up, we have the stunning @sarahspaceman who had arrived at the Dragon Con in a very elaborate and equally gorgeous Sakizou Diamond attire.

Next up, we have @roxannethelycan keeping it simple with her Ashley Graham impersonation from Resident Evil 4. Whoever said, simple isn’t stunning, we only say, you haven’t seen @raxxannethelycan’s impersonation yet!

Cosplayers @getteambatman and @Atlantasdarkknight arrived at the Dragon Con as Johnny and Moira Rose from the popular show Schitt’s Creek. Don’t they look amazing?

Cosplayer @evilpottercosplay arrived as Ms. Joke from the hit manga series My Hero Academia.

And then there was @2playergame, who had chosen to arrive at the convention as Ted Lasso. A neat, simple and we say, wonderful impersonation, right there.

We also loved @ginger.oh.snap in her impersonation of Miss Minutes from the recently released and highly popular TV show from the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Loki. To complete the attire, she matched it up with an adorable orange coloured mask.

Speaking of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, there was also @robertdowneybell who had chosen to attend as Tony Stark/Iron Man. We are loving this impersonation, 3,000!

Cosplayer @cosplaythefamilyway chose to attend the Dragon Con as Appa from Avatar: The Last Airbender and it could not have been more accurately done, we feel.

We also particularly liked @dorksidefitness’s impersonation of the Wolverine. Aren’t those claws almost lifelike?

What won our heart completely was @durnesque, who had chosen to cosplay in a Princess Leia x Wonder Woman crossover outfit. This outfit, could very well have been on our short list of Halloween costumes, if only we knew we could pull it off as great as her!

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.
