Arisia 2018 - 01-13-18 - 077

It’s officially 2018 con season here in Boston, and as usual we kick things off at the sci-fi/fantasy con, Arisia. The weekend of Jan. 12-14 was full of great cosplays, friends old and new, and — only in New England — a steamy upper-50s Friday followed by two days of 10-12 degrees and gale-force winds. But we’re hardy around here, and the weird weather didn’t keep anyone away from the Westin Waterfront hotel.

For my fourth year at Arisia, I had a blast shooting some fun cosplays around the open, airy lobby and some of the less-crowded lower levels. Featured in this gallery are cosplayers like Sith Lantern CosplayCarley Winn Cosplay and many of the robots she made for the LARP Future ImperfectHanniBanani CosplayGrainne Sea CosplayearlsgreyZombie Leader; new Love Live idol group Lunar Idols with Bunny Moon CosplayLavender Nightshade CosplayAtlantic CosplayAnimationalStar CosplayMarmaladeskys Photographyfuegoicecosarts, and others; CiaoBirdie Cosplay, DeadlysymmetryCares O-Lot CosplayAfon Art Studio, and many more.
