Cosplay, as far as the eye could see! The annual rAge gaming expo usually serves up some of the best cosplay South Africa has to offer – and this year has been no exception.

For those that don’t know, cosplay is a portmanteau of the words costume play, and involves people going to great lengths to dress up as their favourite character from films, television series, anime, and yes, video games.

While characters from the vast Batman franchise were definitely popular this year, a female Luigi, Roman soldiers and even a Toy Soldier all made their appearance.

While fostering a passion for the arts, Charlie developed a love for technology – both which allowed him to serve as Entertainment and Technology Editor for an online publication. Charlie has since been heavily involved in consumer technology for various websites and publications. He thoroughly enjoys World War II films and cerebral documentaries; aviation; photography and indie music. Oh yes, and he also has a rather strange obsession with collecting coffee mugs from his travels.
