Atlanta Cosplay Yard Sale started as its own little event. It was a chance for cosplayers to sell their used costumes, accessories, props, etc… and for the rest of us to complete our costumes or buy a complete set. When you go to Dragon Con, you don’t just cosplay ONE character… oh no…. you have a schedule over the course of the (now) 5 day event.
It expanded into consignments, artists, and craftsman… we even had vendors selling fabrics. It’s turned into a little community and we are so proud to have nurtured it.
We started humbly in a Marriott in Cobb with around 2500sq ft, which proved to be too small of a space.. so we expanded in 2018 with 8000sq ft, which was perfect. First year’s attendance was around 3000 people, second was less than that but nonetheless successful.
