TOP FOUR OUTFITS/ITEMS TO AVOID
Spartan Soldier from ‘300’
Obviously, if you have the body for it, I won’t stop you. Let’s face it, though: 300 was a hit back in 2007. Right now, it’s the frat boy’s answer to a Dragon*Con costume idea. If you really want to show off your sexy, muscular body, find something that’s either a little more current or classic.
Any Character from ‘Chuck’ / ‘Community’ / ‘The Big Bang Theory’
Not everyone who goes to Dragon*Con has to go in costume. If you’re not going to go big, though, don’t try to cover for it by going the lazy route with characters from any geeky show set in today’s times. You can look like Sheldon or Leonard any other day of the year and get away with it. Don’t try it here.
Corsets and Heels
This one is less of an “avoid” and more of a “carefully consider.” There are plenty of girls (and some guys) who will be wearing corsets and/or heels at Dragon*Con. That’s fine, but there are a few things to keep in mind. One, don’t make either of these items the end of your outfit. It’s easy to just throw on a corset (okay, it’s not, but you get what I’m saying…); it’s more interesting to come up with a full-fledged costume that includes a corset. Two, remember that you’ll likely be wearing this all around Dragon*Con. Do you really want to run around the convention in heels? At least be sure to bring a pair of backup flats.
Generic Halloween Costumes
I shouldn’t have to say this, but just to make the point clear: people who come to Dragon*Con in costume spend months, if not years, on their costumes. Nobody – and I mean nobody – wants to see you in a generic superhero costume you bought online from a company that sells the bulk of their product at Halloween. The only exception to this is if you’re a kid. Once you hit the teenage years, though, making your own costumes is important for conventions like Dragon*Con.
