The fact that BlizzCon attendees were all about celebrating a single company’s games and franchises didn’t really limit cosplayers. As I mentioned when we shared a look at the costume contest participants, Blizzard Entertainment’s games are overflowing with a variety of characters. Cosplayers could opt to be a being with wings, build massive armor, go for bodysuits, focus on complex makeup… they’re all over the spectrum. Sneaky Zebra was on hand to capture the impressive range of costumes and they put footage together in a new cosplay video. Watch it above and skip to about 2:36 for a sword with electronic and fog effects.
