This year was my second time attending the Penny Arcade Expo, and I am glad to say, this year was even better than last year. PAX East is a 3-day convention, located in Boston, held at the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center. PAX East is a great opportunity for gamers to get their hands on […]
Sunday at PAX East 2014 was not as crowded as Saturday, but if you try to guess by how much based on the lines at the food vendors, the answer was “not much.” And the number of cosplayers was, one could logically assume, somewhat less than on Saturday, but again it was tough the tell […]
Anime Boston was held a few weeks ago in chilly late March, and our photography editor KBV Photography was in attendance, grabbing shots of the anime cosplay goodness. Not surprisingly, the immensely popular anime Kill La Kill was the focus of many of the cosplayers. Nudist Beach group shots, anyone?
PAX East 2014, held this past weekend at the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center, saw pretty big crowds all three days, but Saturday had the biggest crowd, and the most cosplayers. Partly that was because of Mass Effect cosplay meetups, League of Legends cosplay meetups, and a costume contest, the male winner of which was […]
While it is true that the game League of Legends seems to be responsible for nearly half of all cosplay costumes at PAX East 2014, held this past weekend at the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center, that’s not a bad thing. Riot Games has stepped up its design for its characters in the past few […]
Wrapping up the series of observations about the gaming convention PAX East, happening this weekend in Boston, with the third and last day. This type of coverage has a long history in journalism as something called a “reporter’s notebook,” but what it is today is basically a series of tweets I never actually sent. But […]

Over the next three day’s I will post a series of observations about the gaming convention PAX East, happening this weekend in Boston.

Last year Megacon celebrated its 10th year in existence and set a record for attendance with 62,000 fans flocking to the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando. While locals consider it the same thing as predecessor OrlandoCon, which ran from 1974 to 1993, Megacon as a separate entity was born in 1993. This year Megacon […]
Our latest video interview is with Bethany Maddock and Mike, a pair of New England cosplayers we met at Katsucon 2014.

Katsucon is a three day annual anime convention that takes place at the Gaylord National Resort & Convention Center in National Harbor, Md. It is traditionally held in February over Presidents Day weekend, and was previously held in various locations around Virginia, and Washington, D.C. This is my second time at Katsucon, and this year […]

We’re all busy people here; some of us have jobs and families and pets to feed. Some of us don’t know how to sew, or vacuum form our own plastic weapons, or cut and style wigs. Whether it be for a lack of time or a lack of skill, many of us cosplayers have considered […]
I love it when two nerd worlds come together. In this case, the band Anaria does an outstanding cover of the song “I See Fire” from the movie “The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug.” The lead singer of Anaria is none other than the talented and beautiful cosplayer Madam Mercy. So in this one video […]
If I thought picking the best photos for yesterday’s rundown of the best male cosplay shots of 2013 was tough, today’s was even more challenging. In fact, I couldn’t stick to 12, so I present a baker’s dozen of the most amazing cosplay shots featuring ladies I took in 2013. Like the last two retrospectives […]
This is the second in a three-part series looking back at some of the most amazing cosplays I got a chance to shoot in 2013. I was a very busy year for me for cons and cosplay photography. I was privileged to get to go to cosplay powerhouse cons like Katsucon, Megacon and DragonCon for the […]

I was privileged to get to go to cosplay powerhouse cons like Katsucon, Megacon and DragonCon for the first time this year, and managed to take photos of some truly mind-blowing cosplayers and costumes. Starting today I will post a list of […]
Written by Lauren Grant With the new “Justice League”-like Man of Steel sequel coming in 2015, this gives many cosplayers out there a chance to use their imaginations to see what the impending film’s characters will look like. But who’s really interested in what Batman or Superman will be wearing when we’ve seen countless superhero […]
Momocon “Cosplayers on Ice” took place on Dec. 8, 2013 and Willie of Double Stomp Productions had the opportunity to be a part of this event! Here is what he had to say about the experience: “Needless to say, we had a blast! It was a great chance to get everyone amped up for what […]
This was my first time attending Super MegaFest the weekend before Thanksgiving. I had heard much about this show, ever since I got into the convention scene through mutual friends from the Massachusetts area. Sadly I missed both the 2011 and 2012 shows, so you can imagine how excited I was to attend the 2013 […]
The last day of any con is the quietest, and that was no different at Super MegaFest, a multi-entertainment con held in Framingham, Mass. However, the cosplayers were still out in full force, as were the celebrities, and I know the highlight for cosplay guests Nicole Marie Jean and Destiny Nickelsen was meeting Jon Heder (picture […]
One of the last conventions in the New England area each year is Super MegaFest, a multi-entertainment con held in Framingham, Mass., that has become a sort of Dragon Con Lite for New England area cosplayers. Below you can see more than 100 photos from the first day of the two-day convention, shot mostly by […]

We got a chance to do a […]
Our own contributor Kevin Conn (known to you as Unemployed Skeletor) managed to pull off an amazing marriage proposal to his girlfriend Laura at the most recent New York Comic Con. Not only did he do it in character (not Skeletor, but Lt. Flint), but he managed to bring Laura’s father to the con to […]
Today, in honor of Veteran’s Day and for those who served in the military and protected our rights, I wanted to spotlight certain cosplayers in our nerd community to share with us their thoughts on the holiday and whether their military background has made an impact on their nerd lifestyle. In this article, I talked […]
Like any two-year old, Rhode Island Comic Con is experiencing growing pains. But this past weekend it proved itself to be a beautiful baby comic convention, with a broad appeal to attendees outside the comic book world. Mind you, the con took place despite the best attempts by fate to disrupt it. On Friday, the […]
Check out your Editor in Chief’s cosplay shots from the biggest little comic convention on the East Coast, Rhode Island Comic Con — set to hit around 50,000 attendees in just its second year.
While it would take too long to say all of this to every troll on the Internet, so many of them so richly deserve this that it has to be shared. It is a much less costly method of dealing with them the the solution that Jay and Silent Bob came to at the end […]

San Diego Comic Con is the biggest convention in the US, and I always look forward to seeing what amazing cosplays and cosplayers will be showcased there, either in photos or in video form. And most of those videos I see online tend to fall into two categories; either the cosplays are showcased to show […]
By now you’ve probably heard about AnimeNext’s infamous Cosplayer Pillow incident. If not, then the long and short of the story is this: photographer Eric Pearce of 2 Image Solutions Photography used images he took of cosplayers, cosplayers who he claimed had signed release forms, and then put their photos on pillows for sale without […]
A few Fridays ago, on the eve of Memorial Day weekend, I hit up Anime Boston to kick off my holiday right. With camera in hand, I roamed the hallways collecting photographs of well-dressed cosplayers, and soaked in everything this now-seasoned convention had to offer this now-seasoned convention-goer. Anime Boston and I grew up together. […]
You know what I love most about debuting a new cosplay at a convention? The amazing photographers, who take the most incredible photos of my newest creations. Cosplay photographers really make cosplaying worth it, and without them most of us wouldn’t have any recognition, or amazing pics of the cosplays that we do. So I […]

Also, as I am writing this, they are 5,000 dollars away from reaching their goal to […]
Before PAX East opened to the public I got a chance to step inside the exhibit room around 9:40 am to check out some of the amazing booths and displays of this year’s convention. I was standing in front of a giant TV screen showing off footage of some intense game graphics at the Crystal […]
Cosplayers Amanda Finley and Tiffany Diaz put together this awesome costume mash-up of popular Adventure Time characters Princess Bubblegum and Marceline, the Vampire Queen and the sailor scouts of Sailor Moon. These awesome pictures were taken by Bentpic5 Photography at Momocon 2013.
