The Men of Dragon*Con

There's something for everyone at Dragon*Con! To balance the universe (and to complement yesterday's post about the Women of Dragon*Con), here's a bit about the Men of Dragon*Con...

Dragon*Con is not the convention of yesteryear. Even though the media erroneously and insistently (read "rudely") continue to refer to our conventioneers as "geeks and freaks," have a look for yourself and you decide...I think they're something quite beyond that (in a good way, of course).

The guys' costumes at Dragon*Con are inventive, worn with confidence, and many are quite revealing...these men are not timid nor shy! They're handsome and sexy (as are their female counterparts) and I wouldn't want to be the one who called them anything else...especially any of the ones with the huge biceps or a light saber! There's a healthy dose of villainy, drama, and a lot of fun thrown in, as well.

The Men of Dragon*Con are all about superheroes, villains, steam punk, zombies, and a lot of outright fun. The best thing...any of them are more than happy to pose for a photo. So, if you're one of the 40,000-50,000 who will be attending Dragon*Con 2011, make sure to remember your're going to want to post those pix on Facebook!

I'm serious about the media and their name-calling...intentional or not. Take good look reporters! Just like the Women of Dragon*Con, these dudes are "handsome and sexy." Keep it up with the insults and one of these muscle-bound numbers just might kick some reporter butt. Just sayin'.

The list of male celebrities attending Dragon*Con this year is just as impressive as the costumes being worn by conventioneers. The male celebrity I am most looking forward to meeting is a two-way tie: Leonard Nimoy (Spock on Star Trek), who I met nearly a decade ago, and Sam Witwer (Battlestar Galactica and Being Human).

Also slatted to attend (and certainly also available for autographs) are: Bruce Boxleitner (Babylon 5), Joel Gretsch (Taken and V), Christopher Lloyd (Back to the Future), and William Shatner, the original Captain James T. Kirk.

ATLANTApix and ATLANTAvidz of the tourATLANTA blog features a daily photo or video relative to Atlanta. Come back tomorrow for a new one!
