The parade starts off with bag pipes--why, I do not know, but every time I've seen the start of the parade it has started with bag pipes. Then you get a little of everything.
Some regular parade spectacles--
And then loads of these wacky, passionate people who put together their own costumes and floats.
|Lots of Dr. Who this year|
|This is a part of a group all decked out as elements in the Periodic Table. This Con IS a nerd fest after all.|
|Many hobbits and elves--but this is the only Gollum I saw. Kind of tall. And check those feet slippers!|
|Got a ton of pictures with the red haired guy on the left. Funny, I didn't even notice him when I was standing there!|
|It's not every day you see full grown men dressed as full out Spartans walking with spears down Peachtree Street.|
|A lot of characters obviously are not from warm climates, unfortunately. It was about 90 degrees fahrenheit out there on the pavement.|
|If you look closely, you can see a little baby foot poking up over the edge of the cockpit.|
