Scorching August heat didn't stop Megan Nelson from dressing up in on a long faux fur coat like Cruella de Vil for her first Doggy Con convention. She posed Saturday for photos alongside her dog Darla, a chocolate Labrador Retriever mix sporting a Dalmatian costume.
Doggy Con is in its third year of bringing dressed-up dogs to their own small pop culture convention.
Dragon Con donated prizes, including passes to its Aug. 29-Sept. 2 convention. For decades, the internationally known Dragon Con has attracted thousands to Atlanta who dress up like characters from video games, movies and more.
