Enthusiast Gaming Live Expo (EGLX) took place the weekend before Halloween, and with that came some pretty creative cosplays. Thanks to the Cosplay Lounge provided by Enthusiast Gaming (our parent company), cosplayers were able to kick back, relax, and show off their costumes. They even hosted multiple cosplay events such as cosplay Bingo, trick or treating, cosplay Jenga, and a cosplay building contest. Personally, I loved the Cosplay Lounge and found it a great place to take a break from the excitement and business of EGLX. The staff who ran it did a fantastic job and even set up a little living room to get your game on!
Microsoft even hosted a cosplay contest. Mr. Destructoid himself was also walking around posing for photos and hanging with fellow cosplayers. It was really cool to see such creativity on display. Guests were really getting into the spirit of not just it being Halloween weekend but also celebrating their favorite video games. Also, yes, a few Bowsettes were also spotted. I myself got into the spirit and cosplayed as Zelda in her look from Breath of the Wild and as a simple Team Rocket Grunt.
Below are some of the cool cosplays I spotted. Hope you enjoy them and kudos to all the fantastic cosplayers who worked hard on their looks. Hopefully, we will see even more amazing cosplays at upcoming EGLXs in the future. Kudos to all the cosplayers on their hard work and for coming to hang out at EGLX 2018.
