Mistress of Pain

Our colleagues from GameSpot attended BlizzCon last week and took excellent photos of Blizzard Entertainment's well-attended event. Take a look at some of the attendees who decked out for the costume contest, peek at what was in the BlizzCon goody bag, admire the fan art, peruse the custom Terran Marines, and more.

Photos are courtesy of GameSpot.

I must say if all priests looked like her more men would go to church.

While these aren't the worst I've seen from you, let's be generous and refer to them as "snapshots", because "excellent photos" they ain't - not by Earth standards anyway. You gave a writer a camera and said GO, right? Oh, no I see you borrowed them from another company, Gamespot; a bunch of writers/gamers - not my first choice for photography...

one of these conventions several years ago while walking through a local hotel. We thought we were on another planet. The place was teeming with science fiction characters. My six-year old daughter was very frightened and wanted to go home. On a bulletin board was a notice of the upcoming breakout sessions for the convention. One of the sessions was titled "Is that a costume you are wearing or an extension of your personality?"

Why is there always a FAT GUY or FAT GIRL in costume trying to be something they will never be?? (Like Interesting)

I had a similar response once. I was on Sunset blvd in Hollywood, CA. People dress up and pose for photos for a gratuity. One was dressed in a devil type of costume. My 4-yr old daughter's response was she was ready to defend the family and fight "it" to the death. I wish I had a photo of her face. Fortunately, my little warrior princess held back.

While I certainly have my own definition of beauty, I'm not sure interesting is defined by a persons shape. An interesting conversation over the phone is interesting independent of the appearance of the person on the other end.
