Fighting games. League of Legends. Final Fantasy. Mass Effect. These, and more, are the things people dressed up as last week, and did a damn fine job of along the way.

While you've seen some of the cosplay that went down at PAX already tonight, that's a single event in a single city. There's a whole world of cosplay out there, and it had a pretty good week too.

Fancy Pants is Kotaku's weekly round-up of the best in video game cosplay (costume play), where fans dress up as their favourite characters.
