PAX is home to plenty of first looks at new products, but it was discreetly home to first buy for the extremely limited edition Pikachu Nintendo 3DS XL. There was a small kiosk at the Nintendo area, inconspicuously facing away from the main thoroughfare, that was distinct from the rest of the Nintendo attractions […]
Sophia’s Grumpy Cat costume was a big hit. Despite our reservations, people had no trouble figuring out what she was dressed up as, and that they wanted a picture with her. One of the best perks was that it allowed for effortless pairing with other cosplayers!
It’s not that we don’t like you, zombie, it’s just that we don’t want to catch cooties. Haven’t you ever heard of PAX Pox? Who knows how many gamers you’ve been kissing!
I was really tickled by the details Caitlyn added to her costume mid-convention: she has an AD Carry League of Legends lanyard, and wrapped a pair of Chandra Nalaar goggles around her hat, effortlessly enhancing the character’s steampunk vibe.
Super simple matching costumes, but fully evocative of Pokemon. I also smirked when I spotted their considerable swag pile – they had clearly done their time at the PopCap booth.
This costume had such a fun, fitted purple velvet that I couldn’t not ask for a picture. (Also, somehow we are standing at a show floor intersection that is not absolutely mobbed by attendees. How is this possible?)
“Son, you’re going to have to learn how to deal with Asians if you ever want to be part of a successful Capcom game. Might as well start now.”
Costumes where the head is above your actual head are the creepiest. This was the case for the Clockwork Droid, who actually had a glass head underneath the mask, complete with gears. You know you shouldn’t be addressing the face, but it’s weird and scary to be addressing the thin lace by the neck. […]
I don’t have many friends who cosplay, but the ones who do, pull off incredible outfits. This coord has simple ingredients that mesh well and turn out to be much more than the sum of their parts. Bonus points for original style League of Legends lanyard holding her badge.
Man, what is with these female cosplayers with awesome costumes looking absolutely bored killing me? My group actually struck up a conversation with her after the shot, but even when she was discussing cosplay, she looked like she wanted to rope those vines around her own neck.
