To brighten your day, I’ve a snippet of news that will cheer up even the grumpiest of grumps.
The 1UP Cosplay Gallery from Pax East 2011 has gone live and boy are you in for a treat. I love Cosplay. It’s a niche only we as gamers could possibly begin to understand. I’d never do it myself of course, don’t be ridiculous, but it doesn’t mean I don’t admire those who do it. They’ve got some balls and they aren’t half bad with a sewing machine. While we might be flagging behind those in the East in the costume department, the daring lot over at Pax gave them a run for their money this year.
Keep an eye out for number #13…

Wasn’t PAX where all the dickwolves controversy shit was supposed to go down? Or did that happen a bit earlier at another PAX? Never heard the end result of that … whether people wore shirts and made statements, or didn’t wear shirts and made statements by not wearing shirts, or talked about shirts and not wearing shirts and making statements about shirts and wolves and dicks? Or something? The whole thing was a waste of time, frankly.
You have to admire cosplayers for the creativity and confidence. I admit I’ve never fully understood the hobby, but some of the work that goes into those costumes is amazing. #13 was…
There are no words.
As for dickwolves, xtal, I think the thing finally blew over in advance of PAX East due to the argument on Twitter finally getting out of control – death threats and the like. It has done lasting damage, not because of the initial incident but because of the way PA handled it after the fact. Like many other internet scandals, though, I’m sure it will eventually be forgotten.
#13 = Man-Li? 🙂
So hilariously awesome.
#9 Which Zelda was it where Link had a wedgy? I MUST KNOW.
