Before I ever started going to the convention, Otakon has always been for me tied to Baltimore. Pratt street and the Inner Harbor is taken over by cos-players and convention goers and everyone who works downtown or drives down Pratt Street knows it, because for one weekend you can't escape it.
With the explosion in popularity of Comic Con, it seems like no fan convention is without it's dedicated cosplayers. Traditionally Magfest has always had a few, but it is only in recent years that it has really blossomed. Check out the photos below.
