Dragon*Con missed connections remind us that under every orc costume there’s a heart

‘I was the transformers guy’

The massive annual gathering of sci-fi fanatics known as Dragon*Con is over. Hotel cleaning crews are washing glitter out of the carpets. Valets are wondering when they’ll park another Ectomobile. Security guards are no longer wigging out over guys walking around downtown Atlanta with replica plasma cannons. Life is slowly getting back to normal.

As you’d expect, some attendees of the weekend event were struck by cupid’s arrow. Rather than live with regrets, these men and women turned to Craigslist to try and reconnect with that costumed stranger who caught their eye during the drum circle or a panel discussion about Buffy the Vampire Slayer.

CL Intern extraordinaire Abbey McDaniel scoured the classifieds site to find congoers seeking another chance to meet. After the jump, we present those findings. (Miss Dragon*Con? Check out our photo gallery from the parade and event.)
