I work in Boston's Fort Point Channel neighborhood, practically around the corner from the giant Boston Convention Center. Friday witnessed an invasion of costumed visitors crowding all the local lunch venues -- attendees of the PAX East gaming conference.
There's been a lot of great local coverage. The Boston Globe has a good slide show up of some of the best costumes attendees were sporting. Reuters MediaFile blog also has some pictures. But if you really want to know more about what's hot and what's not, Maddy Myers is doing yeoman's work chronicling the PAX conference over on the Boston Phoenix's LaserOrgy blog.
