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 Dance Contest

Editor's Note: The video has been removed.

This video is (sadly!) just a partial representation of the dance contest entries. After a hard afternoon on the conference floor, the video camera decided to run dead after about ten minutes of footage. But you'll get a feel for what the contest was like, and all without having to watch 47 different people do the Blood Elf female dance. (There probably weren't really 47 of them, but it really felt like it.) In the end, the winners were all Blood Elves: two females (one of which is in this video, the first Blood Elf female of the lot) and a male. And while the male Blood Elf was excellent (he was wearing a "VOTE FOR KAEL'THAS" shirt), I wish some of the other excellent dances were represented in the finalists. There was at least one very successful attempt at the Troll male dance (complete with the upside down on one hand bit) as well as a great Troll female dance, both seen in our video clip.
