WWI08 Costume Contest Gallery

Wrapping up the first day of the Worldwide Invitational 2008, Blizzard held a costume competition and dance contest, both well-loved staples of their community events. The main hall upstairs was packed to bursting and your humble WoW Insider blogger got kindly escorted away from the official photography stand, but that didn't stop us snapping what we could of the contests.

We were surprised at how little exposure the costumes got compared to the dancers; the costume participants were trundled on to stage in groups, gave a quick wave and then herded to the back, whereas the hosts of the contest had plenty of banter with almost every dance competitor and even joined in with some of the dances. We would have liked to get a closer, and longer, look at some of the beautiful creations on display.

Browse through WoW Insider's WWI08 Costume and Dance Contest Gallery to see some of the highlights of the show, and find out the eventual winners.

BlizzCon Costume Contest

Last night's costume contest was immensely impressive. There were a total of 98 entries and all of them obviously took a lot of time -- and some of them clearly took a lot of creativity. I still think my personal favorite was the fellow who dressed up in a costume like the in-game Murloc costume -- he even ran across the stage just like the Murloc suit animation! However, with all of the great entries, he didn't take the top spot. Props for creativity have to go to the fellow who came to the contest dressed in a blue-and-white checkered box (if you don't realize, the checkered box is what the game shows when it doesn't have a model for something). We've got quite a few contest photos in our gallery, but sadly many of the contestants moved very quickly from one side of the stage to the other, resulting in a lot of blurry images. But there's a decent shot of the four winners, including a Human Rogue, a Moonkin (he even did a Moonkin dance for us!), a Tarran Ghost from StarCraft, and a Warlock in their amazing tier 6 armor set (she had the helmet as well, though it's not in this shot).

However, enjoy the ones we've got, and we'll be adding more costumes to it as we see them on the show floor today!

Update: Joystiqer Kevin Kelly is out on the show floor as well, and it looks like he got a much better view of the stage than we did -- so be sure to check out Joystiq's excellent gallery.

Two new contests!

Blizzard has presented US players with two new Halloween-themed contests -- a pumpkin-carving contest and a costume contest. Each contest covers all of Blizzard's games, with prizes awarded for entries with a Starcraft, Warcraft, or Diablo theme. And both contests have been done before -- this marking the 4th year of pumpkin and the 3rd year of the costume contest. The rewards are not astounding (a copy of WoW and the board game for the pumpkin-carving contest, and a copy of WoW with a years' subscription for the costume contest), but the contests sound fun, nevertheless.
