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.

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.

So it's geared towards kids and looks neat at first but ultimately doesn't have much to it. Fitting. (That's Nerdalicious)
