Even though PAX doesn’t have an official cosplay competition, or much for cosplayers at all aside from a few panels here and there, it’s still a huge event that draws some of Australia’s best costumes. From giant Overwatch groups to incredible Blizzard costumes, PAX has it all. Here are some of our favourite cosplay photos from across the weekend.

Click through the slideshows below to see some of the best in PAX cosplay, and PAX cosplay photography. This first set is from Sydney photographer Byte Size Photography:

Last but not least we’ve grabbed some photos from Snap Happy Ian, who is incredibly good at finding a tiny space in convention centres and making it look like a proper studio shoot. Here are some of his shots:

PAX is also prime territory for some amazing cosplay videos. Check out the videos below from JATSTV and Quackpot Media.

As always, if you know any cosplayer credits that are missing, let me know and I’ll add them in!
