The craziness that is Tokyo Game Show truly begins once the show opens to the public on Saturday. Seeing the amount of people cram into one convention center is truly astounding, but each year at Makuhari Messe in Chiba, Japan, the show is packed with people waiting to get their hands on games. But the real gem is Cosplay Alley, located in an outdoor corridor that sits between two giant halls of the convention. Here, the hot and humid air is stifling, but that doesn't stop cosplayers and photographers from cramming into this space. Cosplay Alley where some of the best cosplayers flock to, and pose for thousands of photographers with obscenely huge zoom lenses.
