Top 10 reasons why we heart Dragon*Con

When Labor Day rolls around each year, our home base of Atlanta, Georgia, turns into a veritable Paradise for geekery during Dragon*Con. Fantasy enters the realm of reality, putting costumes on fans and smiles on so many faces (including in our newsroom). And we love getting iReports about the sci-fi shindig, too, like the bunches and bunches we got from vladeb and GStern, and the video from iRbarnes. Here's the top 10 reasons why CNN iReport loves Dragon*Con sooooo much:


10. Storm troopers eat burgers like the rest of us. See photo 10 from ZombieJP as proof.
9. Comic-book characters drawn on boxes!
8. Superheroes and supervillains put aside their differences
7. Taking pictures at the con is like working for the Daily Planet.
6. Those costumes are surely an endurance challenge.
5. Whatever goes wrong, you're pretty much covered, superhero-wise.
4. Did we mention that there's a PARADE?
3. Whoa, hippie Darth Vader on frame 3.
2. Marvel master Stan Lee comes to town and answers your questions.
1. Face it, Spandex is awesome. And so are you.


We got such a geeky rush over your response that we made a photo gallery. Check it out, and be sure to comment below to let us know about your experiences as well.

I have a quick question for you CNN staff! How come there is no black people on the bachlor, bachlorette, bachlor pad, jersey shore, and whatever else. It seem like to me these shows are racist. Would you agree? Is it a good story to see white people gettin married and black people going to jail? Thats all i ever see on tv. black people are force to see white people have fairy tales lives. black people are lookin for love as well! we,re not all tryin to be on 48 hrs!
