World of WarCrafts: Masks for BlizzCon, plus favorite WarCrafts

Don't have enough time left to assemble a costume for the BlizzCon costume contest (or maybe it was the fierce competition that Feared you off)? We see you poking around over there for ideas that allow you to dip into the spirit of things -- you know, something that doesn't require blue makeup, showing your belly button or spending the next 72 hours with pins, glue and an X-acto knife at the kitchen table ...

Dear cosplay casual, we have your backs (or in this case, your fronts): a mask of one of the new races to be announced at BlizzCon, from Shelbi of The Bronze Kettle. Shelbi (a World of WarCrafts alum and former columnist, herself) dropped us a line to let us know that she's posted a how-to for masking yourself as one of the races of the moment [Spoilers]. This one's as quick, easy and good-looking as they come, so click over to Shelbi's complete instructions and face up to this heady way to look like one of the in crowd at BlizzCon.

After the break, we'll include a spoilerific picture of the front of the new masks (SPOILER ALERT: don't click onward if you don't want to see which race the gorgeous sample represents!), plus we'll announce the World of WarCrafts crafters who've been selected for an upcoming geek crafts book from Chronicle Books.




Gift of the Embalmer tote selected for upcoming book

Speaking of Shelbi at The Bronze Kettle, Shelbi's Gift of the Embalmer tote toted away the chance to represent WoW.com's World of WarCrafts in an upcoming book on geek crafts to be published by Chronicle Books. The book is a collection of 25 original geek craft projects, from Star Trek to comics – and of course, WoW. "Fantastic" was the word the book's editorial team used over and over again in describing this abominably sweet little project.

In fact, the editors were so enthusiastic about World of WarCrafts' nominations that they chose a handful of projects for a mention.
"Seems like a nice mix of craft types and a great peek into the larger archive!" noted the book's writers and editors. Congratulations to Shelbi, Sugarrat, Amythys and Claire on being selected to represent WoW.com's World of WarCrafts in the upcoming book. We can say we knew them when!
