What better way to celebrate OutlantaCon’s 10th annual sci-fi/fantasy gathering Gaylaxicon than with a fashion show?
That was just one of the events at last weekend’s gathering at the Renaissance Concourse Atlanta Airport Hotel.
Each team of two to three people at the Gaylactic Empire Couture fashion show on Friday created their own designs, which had to follow the theme of sci-fi/genderqueer. The show — which featured both fashion and drag — was hosted by the Atlanta Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence.
