Cosplay is a huge part of every PAX event. Overwatch, League of Legends, Mario, Zelda, Deadpool, Kingdom Hearts, and too many others to list were all represented this year. It would be impossible to photograph everyone, but here a few of the passionate, amazing fans who make conventions like PAX so colorful.
