The Cosplay of PAX South – Your Watch Has Begun


Overwatch dominated the Cosplay offerings at PAX South 2017, with everything from Christmas-edition Sombra to gender-swapped Roadhog.

Cosplayers brought their A game to this year’s PAX South in San Antonio, and even though PAX is not a particularly cosplay-focused event, there were still dozens of fans littering the halls with their amazing costumes. Blizzard’s Overwatch was a really big hit this year, and we saw plenty of players dressed up as their favorite heroes.
