Irrational at PAX Prime 2011

No sooner had we recovered from Gamescom 2011 than we were already heading right back out for the next big industry event, the mighty PAX Prime in Seattle. To nobody’s surprise, it was an amazing experience. The PAX audience is pretty reliable in that way.

Our booth was staffed not only with humans but also with the massive Songbird statue we debuted at PAX East earlier this year. All weekend we enjoyed fans dropping by to chat or take photos, some in impressive costumes–both BioShock-related and otherwise. Browse through some of our favorites in our PAX Prime 2011 Flickr gallery.

We were also graced by the presence of Troy Baker and Courtnee Draper, the voice actors behind Booker DeWitt and Elizabeth. They participated in our panel alongside creative director Ken Levine and G4’s Adam Sessler, and were on hand for a signing session with Ken.

The official Irrational Games Award for Most Delicious Cosplay 2011 goes to Bacon.

Jess (our official Elizabeth model), Troy Baker (voice of Booker DeWitt), Courtnee Draper (voice of Elizabeth), and Ken Levine (Irrational Games creative director).

A fan came by to model his wrist chain tattoo inspired by BioShock, and asked Ken Levine to autograph it. Which he did. That’s not actually two overlapping tattoos.

Troy is, quite frankly, terrified by the Swag Monster who stopped by the Irrational booth. As for Courtnee and Ken, they cool.

If you couldn’t make it out, Irrational has more event plans soon. We’re calling for cosplayers at Dragon*Con in Atlanta this weekend, and we’ll have Troy and Courtnee back for another appearance at New York Comic-Con in October. Mark your calendars!

    The Swag Monster apologizes for scaring Troy, the Swag Monster just wants to partake of your wonderful swag, but means you no harm.

        Awwww, thank you

        Feel free to let me know if there is anything Swag Monster can do to help you out in the future, if its just adding an Irrational Games shirt or something to my pelt.

    The blue dress really “pops” or maybe it’s just because she is a stunner. :)
