  6. Cosplayers Finally Facing Copyright Legal Action… Except It’s Over a Carpet

    *gasp* Twist!

    Dragon Con is held at the same Mariott hotel in Atlanta every year, so the people behind Volpin Props decided to get extra-creative and dress up as the unusual-looking carpet that every con-goer knows and... well, tolerates. It was a huge hit with everyone -- right up until the carpet designers slapped them with a Cease & Desist. Womp womp.

  7. Cosplayers Dress Up As Carpet, Carpet Designers Are Not Pleased

    We Can't Have Nice Things

    At DragonCon last month, a couple of cosplayers decided to sidestep the usual fare of superheroes and cartoon characters in favor of dressing up as the carpet at the Marriott hotel where the con takes place. Yup, there was carpet-colored camo. That is a real thing that now exists. Naturally, other people wanted to emulate the design, but, alas, this psychedelic carpet army was not to be - because Courtisan Inc., the company that designed the original rug, issued a Cease and Desist soon after the design went up.

  8. Things We Saw Today: Facebook-Flavored Ice Cream

    Things We Saw Today

    You won't be able to partake in this social network-themed treat unless you're on Croatia's Murter Island, where the not-sanctioned-by-Facebook confection can be found exclusively in brothers Admir and Ibi Adili's ice cream shop. It's pretty much just plain ice cream with a blue syrup that tastes like "chewing gum and candy" drizzled on top. So it's geared towards kids and looks neat at first but ultimately doesn't have much to it. Fitting. (That's Nerdalicious)

  13. Dragon*Con Finally Cuts Financial Ties With Co-Founder and Accused Molester Ed Kramer

    Ed Kramer isn't exactly a great guy, even if he did co-found the convention.

    The organization behind Dragon*Con, the Atlanta-based multi-genre geek convention that will reach its 27th year when it's held at the end of this August, has announced that it has bought out the shares held by co-founder Edward Kramer, a man that has been facing trial for child molestation since 2000. Though Kramer has had no involvement with the convention's organization or planning since that time, he has continued to profit from his 34% ownership of the company's stock. After years of criticism of Kramer's continued association with the convention, the company has finally conceded to public opinion and forced him out.

  16. Creators Call For Fan Convention Boycott Over Co-Founder’s Sexual Abuse Charges

    Insidery

    Ed Kramer, the co-founder of Atlanta, Georgia's Dragon*Con has been in trouble with the law for years. He's recently been extradited back to the state on child-molestation charges dating back to 2000 and while he no longer claims association with the convention, he still receives financial compensation from it thanks to shares he holds in the corporation. As a response to the most recent events, some creators are calling for a boycott of Dragon*Con until they take steps to remove Kramer from the institution entirely.

  18. Superman Helps Batman Propose To Batgirl [VIDEO]

    If you liked it then you should have put a Lantern Ring on it

    Cosplayer Ruby Rinekso is a cool dude in my book but he just solidified himself in the cool history books thanks to this project. Rinesko had a plan to propose to his girlfriend Jennifer Haviland at Dragon*Con during the DC Comics Characters Photo Shoot. He was going to be dressed as 1960s Batman while Haviland would be cosplaying Batgirl from the same series. As if that wasn't enough, three of their friends, in on Rinekso's plan, decided they'd ask Dean Cain (Superman from Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman) to play a part. And he said yes. This is a dream come true and it didn't even happen to me. Watch with a tissue. (via CNN)

  19. My First Trip To Dragon*Con Or, That Time I Fell Into Cosplay Quicksand

    Here Be Dragons

    As a person who attends several pop-culture conventions a year, it's been my yearly goal to try and attend at least one show I haven't been to before. I already did that twice this year with Emerald City Comicon and GeekGirlCon but I figured, what the heck, why not make it a trilogy? So I went to Dragon*Con in Atlanta, Georgia. I'd heard it was crazy. I'd heard it was cosplay central. I wasn't prepared for either. Read on for details about the trip as well as tons of photos!
