Costumes Reign At Gaming Convention

Fans of World of Warcraft and other top games spare no expense in celebrating their favorite characters Another year, another BlizzCon. Blizzard Entertainment's annual convention isn't just a platform for the latest news about upcoming titles like World of Warcraft: Cataclysm and Diablo III. It's also a chance for diehard devotees to show off painstakingly-crafted costumes and let their fan flags fly. Without further ado, we present some of the most eye-catching outfits to grace the festivities this year.
