More than halfway into the year and things really aren’t improving. I don’t think we can expect to see many cosplay conventions this year, but we can look back on some events of the past and enjoy the cosplay.
PAX is a large group of gaming conventions, and part of the ReedPop Entertainment family around the world. They include Pax West, Pax East, Pax South, Pax Aus, Pax Unplugged and Pax Dev. They’ve come a long way from their humble roots in 2004.
This past weekend was Pax East, held in Boston, MA. Gaming included everything from simple dice games up to high-end video gaming. No matter what your game addiction is, they probably had it there.
While a lot of gaming favorites could be found on the floor, there was noticeable absence of several of the larger and more popular vendors such as Blizzard and Riot, Alienware, Hyper X, AMD and Twitch. The advantage to their absence is that it let some of the smaller vendors and exhibitors shine.
In addition to the gaming, there was cosplay. People expressed their love for some of their favorite characters and Anthony Iozzo was there to capture some of them:

Despite the cold weather, thousands of fans flocked to the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center to game, party and show off their cosplay. PAX East is in its seventh year and still going strong.
Even though the focus is primarily gaming, there is still a strong cosplay community as you can tell from these fantastic photos brought to us by 12:36 photography and Tony Ochoa. You can see more of his photos on his website or on Instagram @tonglawl
