Back in October, Kotaku held its second annual Cosplay Ball. The drinks were flowing, the costumes were detailed, and the whole night was magical.

If you didn’t attend, you missed out on a weird and wonderful evening. On top of all the food and drinks, there were arcade games, a costume contest, and a photo booth with professional cosplay photographer Anna Fischer. Artist Toshi Salvino’s brought a touch-up station. You know, for any emergencies. There were even 3D printed “Selfies” from Shapeways. All of this was made possible by our sponsor, Kraken Rum.

Like I said: magical. But don’t worry — you can experience the night in all its glory with these photos.
