Posted  April 24, 2018  by  Gregg "Wonderllama" Snider

We have now reached the final gallery from me of cosplay photos taken at PAX East 2018.

Literally minutes before I broke […]

PAX East 2018 Feature Set: SoulCalibur with Bethany Maddock & Mikal Mosley, by Wonderllama Photo

Posted  April 22, 2018  by  Gregg "Wonderllama" Snider

Bandai Namco was at PAX East 2018 with a demo of their upcoming game SoulCalibur VI. What better way to show off a highly anticipated new release than by having two incredible cosplayers, Bethany Maddock and Mikal Mosley, create all-new cosplays from the upcoming game?  Bethany made a stunning Sophitia, along with her iconic Omega sword and […]

PAX East 2018 Sunday Gallery by FirstPerson Shooter, Part 1

Posted  April 21, 2018  by  Rodney Brown

Sunday at PAX East 2018 was more crowded on the show floor itself than any Sunday I’ve ever seen. But the overall crowds were smaller than Saturday or Friday as is the case with most cons. I still took enough photos of cosplayers for two galleries for the day. Among the cosplayers in this gallery are Petry […]

PAX East 2018 Saturday/Sunday Photos by Wonderllama Photography

Posted  April 20, 2018  by  Gregg "Wonderllama" Snider

On Saturday and Sunday at PAX East 2018, I spent much of my time taking photos for Featured Sets, since FirstPerson Shooter was able to attend and hold down the fort at our usual spot. But I did take enough random hall shots to complete a gallery for the two days. Included in this gallery are some […]

PAX East 2018 Saturday Gallery by FirstPerson Shooter, Part 3

Posted  April 19, 2018  by  Rodney Brown

As the day wound down on Saturday at PAX East 2018 the costumes continued to be amazing, and the photos sometime got a little loopier — or maybe the photographers did. In this set you’ll see my teammate Wonderllama Photography directing a couple of pink furry creatures from Fortnite, and the amazing Shashin Cosplay Photography getting his Pokemon […]

PAX East 2018 Saturday Gallery by FirstPerson Shooter, Part 1

Posted  April 18, 2018  by  Rodney Brown

Requirements of my day job kept me from attending Thursday or Friday of PAX East 2018, which was a great frustration for me. I knew that our content would be well taken care of by Gregg of Wonderllama Photography in my stead, but I missed some great friends and awesome cosplay. While things seem to start […]

PAX East 2018 Friday Pics by Wonderllama Photography, Part 1

Posted  April 16, 2018  by  Gregg "Wonderllama" Snider

PAX East 2018 Friday featured some truly amazing cosplay. Despite the early spring sleet and snow flurries, the crowd was still huge and the cosplayers weren’t scared away. One major highlight was an insane Fiddlesticks from League of Legends, hopping around the lobby on spring-loaded stilts. Cosplayers include Drew the Costumer, ElectronWarrior Cosplay, MicroKitty Cosplay, PileoFrox, Trial of the Jillu, Vault Fox, Faerun […]

PAX East 2018 Thursday Pics by Wonderllama Photo

Posted  April 12, 2018  by  Gregg "Wonderllama" Snider

Another PAX East has come and gone. PAX East 2018 was chock full of impressive cosplay and eye-popping game releases. With the exception of Sunday, the crowd seemed smaller than in previous years, which was likely the intention of expanding the expo to four days from the previous three. That new day, Thursday, was a […]

Next up in our coverage of  Anime Boston 2018 are photos from the Masquerade on Saturday evening. Unfortunately our man Steven from from Prime Cosplay and Photography couldn’t stay for the entire rather lengthy event (OK, I couldn’t wait any longer and pulled him out, to be fair), but we did get this gallery of cosplayers in the Fashion Show part, […]

Saturday Gallery by Zephyrlynk Productions from Anime Boston 2018

Posted  April 11, 2018  by  Rodney Brown

Saturday at Anime Boston 2018 saw Jake of Zephyrlynk Productions wandering all over not only the Hynes Convention Center, but out into the mall at Prudential Place as well. This allowed him to grab all sorts of interesting poses and angles in his photos of cosplayers, something I was less able to do while at our table promoting our own […]
