Post Blizzcon 2010 photos and stories!

hey everyone! I have to say it was great meeting you all and seeing everyones costumes!

this thread is for anyone who wants to share pictures and stories of things that happened this weekend!

I can't say much right now but I'll edit this later. here's one story though:
me and my friend were trying to get passed security to get into the con. the guard stopped us to check our weapons. she feels them and says "these are too hard, you can't bring this in, take it back to your car (right after the 30 minute line to get in) so we were both like fml. so I said "let's just go try a different door!" so we did and the guys let us in right away haha

Oooooo!

This is the only picture I've gotten loaded so far- I'm too sleepy to do the rest. But it is pretty much the greatest picture of me and my husband at BlizzCon!

My goodness, as soon as he started climbing those stairs, the cameras in the line behind us came OUT. My hubby looked so good up there!

I was Lady Deathwhisper.

As I've said, I was really rushed to put my costume together at the last minute, and I was terribly worried that it either would not be wearable, or it would be extremely awkward to look at. x.x I went for three days without sleep prior to the con, and I even had to leave the convention center and finish my headpiece and chain attachment right before the contest, so I missed the photo shoot! I'm so glad that it got to a finished state, but I feel really disappointed for missing that. But it does give me some consolation seeing as I got to chat with many of you either backstage or at the meet ups. All of the costumes I saw were gorgeous, and it was nice to see that there weren't too many duplicates. I even got a chance to talk for quite awhile with Kel'Thuzad from last year. He walked by and complimented my costume after the con and I was like, "Hey, I recognize you from last year, I was Grand Widow!" XD And he totally remembered me too. Liches for life.

On day on, prior to the contest, without the headpiece, veil, and chains, nobody recognized what I was supposed to be. And even after I had the full attire on I got tons of compliments on how amazing my costume was, but many people still didn't know who I was. But that's what you get for dressing as an unpopular character and taking artistic license with it. xD I still had fun.

I dressed up for the very end of day 2, since I had seen most of what I wanted to see, and felt my costume needed more floor time in the finished state. :P I hung out at the Hilton party which, thankfully, I found a group of several of you to chill with, between being attacked by beer-breath drunkards. xD It was fun actually getting to chat with some people, although one guy took it a little far kissing my hand and getting less than 6 inches from my face... Thank you Leslie for stepping in and saving me. I don't drink, dress up or get out much, and I try to be polite to everyone, so I'm not used to being in such settings and dealing with creepers. :S

My feet are so swollen from those shoes right now. I was so in love with how they looked, but boy were they painful. Hopefully they were worth it for the full costume effect.

I sadly have no pictures of my costume, since I didn't bring a camera. So if anyone else got any or finds some, I would love to have them.

Also as a note unrelated to costumes, I got to play through the whole Diablo III demo, and the double rainbow at the end made me happy. XD

I only started working on my costume 4 weeks ago, so I hardly slept at all this week; between 1 and 5 hours each night. I barely made it to the convention on time after having to convince my instructors to let me leave the last day of class early. Then once I tried putting the costume on, I had a total glue/foam surface incapability and most of my velcro feel off. I was ready to give up . . . but somehow my friends managed to tape and pin all the pieces to me.

But it was so fun going on stage. I'd never done it before and I may never do it again, so it was potentially once in a lifetime. All the stilt people should really take the stairs though. Ramps and stilts don't mix.

And, looking at the video, I am disappointed with my stilts. You can totally see where my toes are. Guess design just gets sacrificed when I'm scrambling at the last minute.

After seeing the priest sets from last year at blizzcon I decided to try the whole going to blizzcon in costume. First time ever doing something like this and I had tons of fun. Didn't even think about checking the forums here and the blizzcon section of the WoW forums. Next year I'll defiantly look for meetup details/plans.

Anyways, I need to try to track down some people that took my pictures during blizzcon, but here are two quick ones I have on hand.

Thanks WoW Insider

I had so much fun! It was great finally getting to meet some of you My costume chest piece was too small and just shaped incorrectly, so it kept popping up in the belly area (making me look square and fat lol). I also had 4 straps on my thighs and one of them fell off while i was walking off the stage!!! Other than those costume issues, Blizzcon was amazing and I had a wonderful time cosplaying for the first time! I can't wait to make another costume, I'm totally doing it again for next year.

\Skylin, that shadow picture is way neat!

I had such an awesome time!!! Everyone's costumes looked so fantastic and I was just really amazed

Grats to the winners of the costume contest!!! I <3'd everyone's costumes and am so glad I never have to judge a contest like that.

My fiance put a bunch of pictures he took up on his facebook page. A bunch of you are in them! http://www.facebook.com/#!/album.php...8&id=841284833

Hopefully that works, if not, I'll try to match up who goes with which picture and send the links out.

Another year, another BlizzCon has come to a (reluctant) end. I will say that this year's Day 1 was a lot more bearable then last year. The fans that I installed into Hogger helped sooo much in keeping the internal temperature bearable. Wasn't cool but didn't get overly hot. One of them did die due to a connection failure but thankfully that was at the end of the day after the contests were over.

It was great to see everyone in costumes at the gathering and for the contest . I was a bit amazed that there were some that did remember that I did the Tree of Life last year . All the water loss and headache from my head supporting the bulk of Hogger was worth it. Also many thanks to my gf for having to follow me due to lack of sight and mobility <3. Now just need to hunt down pics of myself as I really had no way to take pics with those massive hands .

Day 2 was a lot more relaxed wearing my SC2 Matt Horner uniform. Though don't think as many people recognized me that day, lol.

Oh and definitely want to give huge props to the contest winners this year!

You're welcome (I say this like I did anything but link his album, lol)! He loved your costume, so he got a bunch of pics of you. He also loved Lil's Sprite Darter too! He just thought you two in particular were super creative

Hi guys!!

This is the first chance I've had to sit down and breathe a little. I want to thank you guys for everything, I seriously had SUCH a blast this weekend and I have a lot of you to thank for it. Let's see - stories!!

My husband was able to track down Samwise just before he took the stage at the artist exhibition and I went all fangirl and had him sign my wings! Then, after the costume contest, a very sweet friend took me by the hand and had me get a picture with him. It was Sam's concept art of the sprite darter that my costume was based on, so that was pretty damn amazing.

I had a great time talking with a bunch of people backstage, but Fiendle, you were SO awesome. I had a blast with you!

I guess my biggest story is just the whole first day. I'll be the first to admit, I was concerned about the costume's reception at the con, but seriously, walking through the main hall, looking for seats for the opening ceremony was all it took to shed all of my doubts. There was just a ripple of people saying "OMG, it's a sprite darter", "Oh wow, that's so cool" and at the very least, I knew I did okay. I never had any grand plans of winning the costume contest, I was just happy that people knew who I was and I even got a couple of squees out of the players. That was totally enough for me. The boy was so happy with how everything went, he wants to cosplay next year as well! Looks like we'll have our work cut out for us! (and yes, as long as I have tickets, the sprite will return next year for day 2 )

And Tonksie - OMG - your boy got some amazing shots!! Well done! (and I'm TOTALLY blushing that he was into the costume - that wing shot is spectacular!)
