I doubt I'll ever attend Dragon Con, what with my inability to be in two places at once and PAX falling on the same weekend, but the cosplay photos and videos are always a treat. We were on the scene for another photo round-up. My favorites are Elsa with a lightsaber, the Bob's Burgers family, Dale & Tucker vs. Evil, blue Link, disco-ball Samus, and of course Groot.
