The first day of BlizzCon drew to a close with a spectacular sense of ceremony. Bands, fan-made machinima movies and of course, the legendary costume competition were all woven together to send off the first half of BlizzCon in style.
Here’s just a few of the incredible cosplay efforts of the fanatical Blizzard fans who invested so much time, love and effort into their costume creations.
Blizzard’s special guest, the Demon Hunter herself, tooled up and ready to start slaying.
Holy moley! That’s a lot of body paint. A Spirit Healer from WoW.
The dreaded Lich King. Arthas and two of his fearsome Death Knight captains. This was one of the few showing for the guys as the girls dominated the competition.
This year’s winner. The graceful and ecstatic Christina Estrada in her amazing Diablo 3 Monk costume. In her interview the happy Christina revealed that her outfit was constructed completely from hand-tooled leather, with all the intricate designs that took months of hard work.
It paid off though as her labor of love won her the accolade as the number 1 BlizzCon 2010 costume creator.
