Cosplay is one of those great hobbies that encompasses many things. You have cosplayers, costumes, conventions, photographers, photoshoots and a whole host of different factors that go into really showcasing an outfit. In this week's Greatest Game Cosplay Ever, we explore a gallery of photos shot at conventions. While everyone might be at the same place, a skilled photographer can choose locations that are varied and make photos really pop. Check out the pictures below.
