Live Contest

BlizzCon 2013 Costume Contest
The Costume Contest makes a triumphant return! Every BlizzCon, you keep upping the ante for amazing costumes, and we’re sure this show will be no exception. As you’re contemplating what you’d like to create, keep in mind that your safety is of paramount importance—that means that any costume you plan to wear should be something that you can easily see out of and safely maneuver in without assistance. In addition, no real weapons, dangerous materials, or large motorized costumes will be allowed.

We’ll have full details on all of the upcoming BlizzCon contests soon—including complete guidelines, rules, and eligibility requirements—so hang tight before busting out your crafting materials. Official sign-ups will start in the coming months, too, so keep an eye on the BlizzCon website.
