Anatomy of a Dinner Party: a day in the life of a hospitalityaholic

The Charm of Dragon*Con

Written by Patti on September 9th, 2010

Good Morning, Darlings!

As you may have guessed, I am still recovering from the paella party. Still. My goodness.

Eric and I did make the time to sneak in a trip to the Dragon*Con Parade on Saturday, after a scrumptious brunch given by our friends, Carrie and Steven.

Today is a photo journey that I think you will really like. The parade just gets better every year.

One of the most exciting days in Atlanta

Cardboard Heroes

Super Girls

I have no idea what a lulz is...

Go Speed Racer, Go

Zombie Majorettes

Dr. Who

District 9

Look closely, the dragon is a bike

Who doesn't love Rainbow Brite?

Spooky baby doll. My favorite shot of the day.

Ghostbuster. After the Staypuft marshmallow man attack.

Beautiful Glinda, the Good Witch of the North.

From the looks of her friend, maybe she is off to play croquet?

The family that parades together....

Ninja Geishas!

Will the real Captain Kirk please stand up? Oh, wait, you are standing...

Donkey and Princess Fiona

Cardboard Princess Leia, after putting on her lipstick in the dark.

Storm Troopers

Catching up with the Storm Troopers.

Trading recipes with Gandolf.

Guess who was excited about the Percy the Platypus tees?

If you are ever in Atlanta on Labor Day, you must not miss this parade. It is essentially the kick off to Halloween. Yay, Halloween!

    Can’t believe I missed this amazing opportunity to wear a costume. Craziness! I am definitely going next year.

    I still wonder how those storm troopers make it through the parade in the heat. It must be 1,000 degrees in those things.
