If you walked in downtown Atlanta this past Labor Day weekend you experienced DragonCon 2015. More than likely saw many strange and wonderful costumes and people wearing these outfits were engaging in ‘Cosplay’.  Cosplay is short for costume play and the people who dress up are adults and really enjoy it. They don’t just put on makeup many actually get into character and will answer as their persona.  Here are pictures of some of the adults who enjoy ‘Cosplay’:
