If you’ve lived here long, then it’s likely you have at least a passing familiarity with Dragon*Con. Each Labor Day weekend, sci-fi, fantasy and comic book fans swoop in on downtown Atlanta—often in costume—for a three-day conference that begins with a parade that draws spectators by the thousands.

Ahead of next week’s festivities, WABE’s Kate Sweeney has the story of a group of ordinary mortals who became masked heroes by harnessing the powers of their creativity and one very common household material.
