All the Best Cosplay from PAX Aus

Anytime there was a spare moment at PAX Aus, I was snapping cosplay. There was a metric tonne of it, and you couldn’t walk from A to B without raising an eyebrow at a costume and thinking, “Nice.”

I was actually a little heartbroken when I saw a brilliant Reinhardt walk past and didn’t have the time to take a pic. So the obligatory disclaimer applies –this isn’t a comprehensive list. These are just the coolest we were able to snap.

For starters, there’s this piece of Flash photography…

Are you kidding me, this is too cute…

I mean, how perfect would it be if the dad had a habit of whistling?

If anyone needed help with anything, these Meeseeks were on-hand to sort out any problems.

Oh man, the quotes. The quotes that would’ve been following them all day. Just make sure you don’t ask them to take a few strokes off your golf game.

“Caaaaaaan do!”

We spotted this Legends cosplayer at EB Expo, and she was dutifully present at PAX Aus as well:

Very clever.

I’m pretty blown away by this Yautja, too:

Fancy a bit of Fallout?

But don’t stop there… Bethesda managed to get all the cosplayers it could find in one spot.

I’m really digging that power armour.

The tattoo here is a nice touch. Though I had to tell him to stop hogging the camera (I’m so sorry).

Better watch out with this one though. The mouth is open.

Get over here… for a photo.

This guy was actually out in the sun for a while. I noticed him vigilantly posing for passersby with camera phones as I walked to a few different things.

I’m not sure what material he’s wearing there, but it looks like maybe some kind of leathery/latex stuff is involved? Shoutout to him for dealing with the sun for so long just so everyone can get their photos.

I’ll never get tired of parent/baby cosplay.

She would’ve gotten lots of attention that day!

As would she:

Loving the eye. Gruesome. And just in time for Halloween.

Oh, and there was that time we got a bunch of Aloys to pose with the developers of Horizon Zero Dawn.

Last but not least, another group shot against the big wall:
