Copper pipes, gauges, goggles, top hats, and corsets could be seen surfacing amongst the sea of cosplayers at Dragon*Con 2012. Steampunk has really come into its own in the past few years, with new Etsy shops and Ebay stores cropping up everyday to offer the latest in gear-covered Nerf weaponry and hydraulic-powered teacups. "Hydraulic-powered teacups?" We really have to get some sleep! In the meantime, here's a gallery of costumes for your skull-meat to enjoy!

We've been showing off plenty of adults dressed up as their favorite characters, but the great thing about conventions like Dragon*Con 2012 is that they are also very kid-friendly, so the little ones can have a blast joining in on the festivities (during the day, anyway)! During our time hanging out at the MTV Geek photo booth, a ton of kids stopped by to get photographed so their con experience shall be forever immortalized online! With that in mind, we're gonna keep the chatter to a minimum so we can fit in as many cool costumes as possible. You're looking at the future!

While Dragon*Con is generally loads of care-free, costumed, fun for the average con-goer, there lies the threat of creeping (simulated) danger and scares at any given turn thanks to the tons of horror fans on hand that are sporting their blood-drenched costumes they've spent hours perfecting just to give you a tingling of dread up your spine. Join us as we continue our Dragon*Con 2012 cosplay coverage with this look at some of the costumes that cause a weaker being to lose bladder control over if happening upon them in the dark, AND some off-beat horror tributes!

Our cosplay coverage of Dragon*Con 2012 rolls on with a glimpse at some of the best and brightest cartoon-based costumes to hit Atlanta! As anyone who has attended, or followed coverage of, SDCC and other cons this year, it seems the reigning champ of animation costuming comes from Cartoon Network's "Adventure time" with a veritable army of Finns running amok with their blue t-shirts and white hats. Dragon*Con seems to be following this trend, but never fear as we have collected a wide variety of cartoon classics for your amusement!

Welcome back to our coverage of Dragon*Con 2012's cosplay! This go-around we're taking a closer look at a wide variety of costumes based on the heroes and villains of film. Movies can be incredibly influential, and what better way for a cosplayer to show their love of a character than by crafting a costume with their own two hands? By letting us photograph them, of course! That's right, we've got it all-- from half-naked, blue, cat-people to Hunter S. Thompson, and beyond!

Cosplayers have once again descended upon Atlanta as part of Dragon*Con 2012, and MTV Geek is joining in with our green-screen photo booth in order to bring you the very best of the costumed-goodness! While fantasy, anime, and steampunk all have huge cosplay factions represented at the show, comic book heroes are still very prevalent-- just not as much as at a con like SDCC-- and right now we're taking a closer look at some of the best costumes based on characters from the DC Comics pantheon. As noted in the title, it seems the classic looks of the characters still ring true to these DIY costumers, with very few looks coming from the current "New 52" style. Maybe it's the uncomfortably high collars...
