Let's kick things off with one of the most vibrant cosplays at PAX AUS: this fab League of Legends Neon Strike Vi from Aussie cosplayer Phunkee Bones. Technically, LoL cosplay counts as arm day for your workout.
Whipped up by Aussie cosplay creators Scrap Shop Props, this Doom Slayer was built in just 18 days -- and it was one of the best outfits on the show floor.
Scorpion from Mortal Kombat had an impressive collection of chains.
Overwatch was a favourite again at PAX AUS, with local cosplayer Black Apple donning her fur boots on the show floor.
Genji, Hanzo and Soldier 77 unite outside the main hall at PAX AUS.
This cosplayer definitely captured the essence of Overwatch's Reaper.
Who says maining Hanzo is a bad thing?
League of Legends representing at PAX (and winning prizes for terrifying-looking spikes).
A vault suit seems like appropriate gear for braving PAX. Wearing fur on a warm spring day? We salute that even more.
Ultimate Carrot from the digital card game Shadowverse was technically a paid mascot appearing at the Shadowverse booth, but he deserves an honourable mention for being so terrifying.
In between guarding Atlantis and, well, the galaxy, Aquaman and Star-Lord bro out on the PAX show floor.
Police officer D.va reporting for duty.
They ran off after this photo was taken, racing each other. It was awesome.
It is Star Wars season, after all.
Gerald is in between video game and Netflix releases right now, so he's got some time on his hands.
There were plenty of excellent Junkrats at PAX AUS, but this one won points for LED lights in the hair, detachable grenades and a serious commitment to the peg leg.
To be fair, pirates have seen some messed up stuff, but we'd expect more of a response when faced with the nurses of Silent Hill.
We spotted this bad-ass bandit on the show floor, complete with very commendable cell-shading.
The heroine from Horizon: Zero Dawn. It's good timing for this particular cosplay, with the game's Frozen Wilds DLC due to come out early next month.
Rick, of "Rick and Morty" fame, in human form. No Pickle Rick yet.
Sydney professional cosplayer Henchwench worked on her version of Galena from Quake for just 18 days, custom painting the chain mail and layers of foam armour.
Finding frightening women in Skyrim Daedric Armour is par for the course outside the main hall of PAX.
