PAX East 2010 Photo Collection

I thought it would be a good/cool idea to have a thread where we post our photo uploads, be it links to albums, inline images (remember to follow rules of posting such things), etc.

I have personally created a facebook album that should be completely openly viewable to anyone here.

Post your pictures, guys!

    There was a huge crowd packed around the Atari 2600 (retro open gaming room) laughing their butts off over the guy playing E.T. (insert howls of pain here), but the EXTREMELY cool little Star Hawk(?) console was getting absolutely no love. :)

    I got a PM asking me what equipment I was using so I figured I'd answer here...

    Nikon D300
    Nikkor 24-70 2.8 AFS

    I was shooting mostly ISO800-2000, generally on the higher range.

    I had my SB800 with me and an 18-200 3.5/5.6VR just in case, but I didn't use either of those.

    Its really funny you should mention that only some may know him. Soco and I were in tabletop freeplay throwin down in some Magic and Mike was there mingling. After he left, the people down the table from us laying Catan were having some discussion. Turns out, one of the guys had no idea who that was and had to be told. I was not expecting that.

    I will be updating my facebook album with the rest of my photos tonight on the train home.

    It's funny. That was actually the first time I had seen him as well, so unless the guy I was with hadn't pointed him out I would have mostly just walked by. (though I did notice a crowd forming around him and figured he had to be someone of consequence. :) )

    You are the girl in the orange skirt? That's awesome. Yeah, I'd be happy to get you a full res pic. All I ask is that you give me credit for the pic when you use it and tell any of your friends who want pictures taken. :)

    Frankly, the main reason I didn't ask anyone to pose was because I was kinda embarrassed that I didn't really know most of the characters. If memory serves you were with the girl with the pyramid thing on her head... when I saw you guys I turned to my friend and was like "Good christ, what the hell is THAT?!" :lol:

    You know... I wonder if I setup a day in the Boston area to just be available to take pictures of folks in their costumes if people would come. It would be a heck of a lot of fun.

    Anyway, I'll PM you and we can exchange email addresses.

    Yup! Except I only decided to cosplay her because Vanille and I happen to have the same hair color. She's from Final Fantasy XIII (which I haven't played yet), and unfortunately I've heard that she's got an annoying voice and character. Ah well, hopefully I wasn't!

    My friend was from the Silent Hill series, as Pyramid Head. I totally recommend the series (specifically the second one) because it's an amazing game! Sakura was Street Fighter and the welder splicer was Jacob Norris from BioShock 2 Multiplayer. :)

    And if you managed to set up a cosplay photo shoot around PAX time next year, I'm sure a ton of people would show up, including me and my friends again. There were plenty of awesome cosplays this year, and as PAX East continues and gets better, I'm sure only more cosplayers will come!

    I was saying to my friend that I need to be more aggressive about it next year since everyone in costume seemed totally cool with posing for the cameras. I'll probably post on here next year that I'll be doing it. I got your email. I get you a link asap!

    Oh man, yea! I was so happy we were able to get in; someone came up to us and said he'd been trying to get rid of his pass and no one needed it, so he let us buy it for just 40 bucks. And it was a three-day pass too, so that was ridiculously cheap and awesome. The day just kept getting better from there :)
