Ways to help Costuming Track support the Special Olympics Georgia

Dragon Con’s 2017 official charity is the Special Olympics Georgia.  All funds raised for this charity during this year’s convention will be matched by Dragon Con dollar for dollar, up to $100,000.

The Costuming Track is providing you with a number of ways that you can help support the cause.

Pin Your Card for Charity

The Costuming Track is providing a Pin Board for our costuming related service providers to show their support for this years charity drive for the Georgia Special Olympics ( This will be located within our Exhibit space for all of the Dragon Con members to see when they visit the exhibit. Learn more here.


Pattern Re-homing (Adoption) Program

The Costuming Track is accepting donations of old patterns of all kinds to be given a new home with fellow costumers and cosplayers for a small monetary donation to the charity drive. Donated patterns will be available (1 for $5 or 3 for $10) at the front of our track room (Hilton, 3rd floor, room 303) throughout the con weekend. Learn more here.

Selfie in The IronFoam Throne of Westeros

Come and see The IronFoam Throne of Westeros at the Costuming Exhibit (Hilton room 301, Friday – Sunday, 11:30a to 8:00p). This is a Look-AND-Touch piece. Take a selfie sitting in the Throne for a small donation to this years charity drive.


General Donations

For those of you who would like to show your support and make a donation, the Costuming Track will have Charity Drive Donation Boxes in our Main Track Room, all 3 of our Workshop/Small Group Classrooms, and at the volunteer table in the Costuming Exhibit.  No amount of donation is to small so reach deep for all of the pocket change and those $20 bills.
