Dragon*Con Part 12: The End of it All

The unfortunate thing about our decision to continue wandering around the Dragon*Con host hotels after the Game of Thrones-themed wedding is that we were out of any sort of drinks...which meant having to purchase some from the hotel bars. And at $7 or $7.50 per beer...I think we knew that our wanderings could not last quite as long as we would have liked :( We kept to the Hyatt and the Marriott, saw several more amazing costumes, and had plenty of random conversations with other friendly con-goers...

Johnny Depp characters!
Darth Nihilus from Knights of the Old Republic!
I feel as if Cersei and Vader would get along, no? ;)
Creepy Clockwork Orange people. At least the guy on the far right took his clown mask off.
This guy was cool, but I wouldn't want to wear his "costume" in the Atlanta heat!

In the end, though, we faced a tough decision: spend more money (that we really shouldn't spend) on beers at the host hotels; stop drinking and wander more despite being tired and having very sore feet; or go back to the hotel at a [somewhat] decent hour and get some rest before returning home the next day. In the end, the latter seemed to be the best bet for our bodies and our wallets, and so back to our hotel we went :)

I have to be honest, it felt nice to get out of that wig and gown! But at the same time, the moment I changed into my pajamas was the moment that I had to truly accept that our amazing weekend was at an end...and that it would be an entire year before we could re-experience this awesome convention.
