Number 6: CALVIN AND HOBBES!!!!
Number 9: Daaaawwww~~ Taokaka is so cuuute <3
Number 16: Would you believe I got stabbed by your Ancestor Altiar Ezio (True story)?
Number 17: Oh shi- *Moon lands into the earth*

Susan Arendt:
Also, as Funk pointed out, we have standing rules against posting pictures of TF2 and Mario cosplay, no matter how good they are. Because they're just so friggin DONE. If I never see another damn Peach in my life, I'll be very, very happy.

I've seen a black Rosalina before, earlier this year in fact. And I've personally witnessed more guys pulling Peach off than girls.

But nice pics. I personally think it's too bad fighting games are so under-represented these days; would love to see more people pull off characters from games like Guilty Gear and even Dead or Alive.

Damn! The Mass Effect ones (especially Miranda!) were AWESOME!

That guy dressed as Garrus deserves a friggin' medal, all these are amazing.

lol, somehow I made it into the set of pictures, though not for a costume. I'm the guy in the green shirt on the #15 pic. Oops...

The really sad part is that we captured a fraction of the amazing cosplayers we saw while we were at PAX. This is just the tiniest of samplings of the truly outstanding work we saw. And just about everyone we photographed was incredibly gracious and cheerful, no matter how many snaps we took.

Tell me, did you happen to catch the Bungie employees and a Spartan playing Just Dance 2?

I wish I went to PAX...

Haha...nope, missed that. But that booth was loaded, man, I don't think I ever saw it empty. Looked like they were having fun, too.

Ah shame. I'm sure we'd love to see some videos of the Escapist Staff playing that game :P

Speaking of videos, will we see any stuff from you guys at PAX? Like interviews and whatnot?

Ha! i know the guy in 21, hes gunna go crazy when i show him the picture.. but great costumes this year

It always blows my mind how may cute girls you see at these things.

I've gone to my fair share of comic and game cons, and the girls that dress up are always knock-outs. The guys are... um, well, they're trying...

My friend #21 is gonna flip when he hears he's on the Escapist.
XD

Wow that skullkid Majora's mask thing is amazing. It looks exactly like in the game and it actually looks good outside a game (which is unusual, I mean some of the other costumes looked a lot like their game counterpart but the skull kid is the only one that doesn't look ugly IRL)

WAKKA WAKKA WAKKA WAKKA!!!!! The ghost makes me happy

And Ezio, for his badassery

I like the lady in the background yelling at people to move up and dance!.. I think it must have been a female in the costume..

I do hope Miss Tron (#1) met up with Servbot Frank West (#20) at some point. That would've been truly alarming.

I think Harley Quinn is one of my all time favs, and #14 has a good look..

Zora #26.. maybe it's the spandex.. but er um.. ya.. good pic

And as others have said Taokaka, looking cute..

So many others looking good, jealous.

Though I did laugh at the title for #37. Fantasy Staff Chick.. um.. it's Codex!

That skull kid one was awesome in very creepy kind of way.

And, as always, yay for all the cute girls.

Damn wish i had been there

whiteM1lk:
I think blizzcon costumes are better.

I haven't been to a PAX in a couple of years, but it used to be rare to see people dressed up. The vast majority of the attendees hardly did anything special... like bath... during the entire three days of the event.

Now Sakuracon and the Emerald City comicon tend to have a lot of costumed attendees.

Someone dressed up as Faust and hung out with short people to make himself look taller.

Awesome.

That Taokaka is so freaking cute! I wanna hug her!

GO TEAM VENTURE!

man VB cosplayers always do such a great job.

Ah cosplay, such delights.

Some good stuff there.

Some of those costumes are amazing xD

Those are some pretty sweet costumes. Wow. I think number one goes to Commander Shepard & his buddies Tali & Garrus. Seriously, that Garrus mask is uncanny! XD Miranda Lawson costume was pretty nicely done, and Ezio gets a "thumbs up" from me as well!

To those going to Escapism UK Halloween. This is what I expect for costumes if you want to win first place and get you hands on the coveted Escapism Winner's gamer goodie bag.

I do believe that pictures 11 isn't from ODST it's Reach.

Sadly, no. Our video crew was busy at DragonCon, having far too much fun. :)

You mean her. That's a girl cosplaying Ezio. :)

I *knew* I recognized her. Thanks!

You believe incorrectly :P I asked, and they flat-out said they were ODSTs.

AmayaOnnaOtaku:
Where's the Dragon*Con love?

On its way, video footage takes a bit longer to edit than straight pictures.

The Miranda one was spot on.

AngryMongoose:
A female spy and blu scouts mum eh? Hey hey!

Ah ha I wasn't the only one that remembered RED Spy is doinking scouts mom.

Asian chicks in bikinis, and a Harley Quinn chick? I wish I was there.

She was just one of at least two. I saw a classic Harley, who was also sensational.

Also, as Funk pointed out, we have standing rules against posting pictures of TF2 and Mario cosplay, no matter how good they are. Because they're just so friggin DONE. If I never see another damn Peach in my life, I'll be very, very happy.

That said, if they want to do a fun spin on the characters - Tanooki suit? Steampunk? Paper Mario? - that's ok. But, no, it's just the same old stuff over and over and over again. You people deserve better.

I didn't actually see any Team Rocket, though.

Agreed, but some of them were well done. I thought they guy wandering around as a turret was a nice touch. Oh, and I caught a snap of Luigi defending Peach from the giant D&D Dragon down in the "hidden level". Looked epic.

Best costume, imho, I'm not spotting on here. There was a large guy dressed up as a minotaur, and while I think he was an employee of the Dragon Age booth, the costume was amazing.

Taking pictures of the cosplayers was one of my favorie things to do at PAX, and everyone was extremely kind to stop and pose. Definitely felt that all the costumes at PAX stepped it up a notch from previous years. I kinda feel that PAX should embrace it and have a costume competition on one of the stages next year (can you imagine that in Benaroya Hall?).

Oh, we have pictures of that guy. But we didn't include them because a) he was official, and we're only doing folks who costumed under their own steam, and b) most of our pictures came out blurry, because he wouldn't keep still. :)

That reminds me. New season starts on the 12th.

Sweet.

Sean Strife:

Is it wrong I wish that they were dancing to Lady GaGa? Something about seeing a Spartan dance to "Just Dance" sounds oddly entertaining to me.

It's not Just Dance... but it's good enough for me. Thank you good sir.
