Many people will be wearing costumes to BlizzCon. If you are one of them, there are a few things you should know:
- If you want to enter the contest, you should enter online by August 17, 2009. Blizzard will accept entries at the con, but only if enough people didn't pre-register.
- They have changed the costume rules a bit. You need to be wearing or holding any props you have.
- If you are bringing your costume for the competition, but not wearing it all day, see an Information Kiosk. There will be no general storage options available.
- What your costume props can include: soft plastic (Nerf?) or air filled weapons, wooden staves that have no metal.
- Your costume cannot include: firearms (even if unloaded and nonfunctional), projectile weapons, edged weapons, bludgeons.
If you are wearing a costume, find a person wearing a WoW.com t-shirt (in the Anaheim Convention Center, not at a restaurant or in traffic) so we can take your picture. Or we'll find you, because we'd love to show how great you look. See you next week!
