It’s what you’ve been waiting for. You know it’s true. It’s a conference, an expo, a super-splendid geek amassing. And this can only mean one thing: the cosplay was out of control. And, you’d be right: Justin, Rett, and I saw the gamut of cosplayers at PAX East. We witnessed anime superstars, gaming heroes and villains, and the occasional sexy/confusing/bewildering/hilarious whatchamacallit from whatsits game about schmagglesbuggery (that last one I totally made up and am super proud of it). Anyway, without further delay, check out the cosplay glory after the break. I snapped as many pics as my little digital camera could hold and my geeky brain could handle without laughing or hemorrhaging from facial orifices. Enjoy!
Carl from the Penny Aracde Automata series.
You KNOW that the Fruit Fucker had to be there!
Arguably the most impressive one there: Isaac from the Dead Space series.
A Fallout 3 bot? Great: there goes the afternoon.
Super impressed by the Team Fortress 2 commitment.
Well, that about wraps up the cosplay action at PAX East! Check back later for one more on-hands article (I quickly summarize my mind-blowing Starcraft 2 session) and a couple of “final thoughts” articles from Rett, Justin, and myself. I am exhausted, at home, watching The Queen on AMC, and reminiscing about the glory that was PAX East this past weekend. I’ll be back to my normal table-top articles later this week.
