It was hard to miss the man cosplaying as female Pokémon trainer Misty at this year's Penny Arcade Expo in Seattle. When I finally caught up to him, I asked to pose for our cosplay gallery.

Alas, there was so little cosplay on day three that there will be no final gallery for the show. Instead, Misty gets a Kotaku post of his own.


He asked me if I wanted a male pose or a female one. Both, I said. Both is what I now share with you.

(As I was taking these photos, another PAX attendee walked by and said, "I will have nightmares about you." I don't think they were talking to me.)
