DragCon LA 2018Pictured: Buff Faye

DragCon was everything I thought it would be and more. There were photo ops set up all around the convention center, from a step and repeat with pink palm trees to a life-size cutout of RuPaul next to a red convertible. All around the massive South Hall, there were meet and greet areas for famous Drag Queens, vendor booths, and art installations.

Friday was a preview night, where weekend pass holders could take a lay of the land and get in line for tickets to meet their favorite artists. Everyone kept it casual as they explored this year’s layout. Come Saturday, it seemed like I was in the middle of a dream with all the amazing outfits and costumes I saw.

There was a lavish pink carpet set up from the main entrance, so everyone could enter like royalty. It was only fitting that people showed up in their most over-the-top looks. The plus size fashion was giving me major inspo so I’m here to share some of my favorite looks of the weekend.

DragCon 2018These beauties were serving classic pageant queen looks. You can never go wrong with a full glam.
DragCon 2018I’m always excited to see indie designs out and about. So, when I saw this babe in a pink suit from Premme, I had to take snap a shot. The tee shirt and flatforms keep it casual and cute.

DragCon 2018You go, Glen Coco. Fresh off tour, Actor and Comedian Daniel Franzese kept it casual and cute with a classic denim vest for all the pins while meeting fans. I was able to catch him moderating a body positive panel on Sunday. I’m so glad we are having this conversation more and more.

DragCon 2018At one point, an impromptu “I Love Lucy” skit played out right in front of me. It was one of my favorite moments of the weekend.

I hope you enjoyed these looks as much as I did. There is nothing better than being in a space with people that are so passionately expressing their individuality. The creativity put into these looks gave me a renewed excitement for personal style.
