World of Warcraft fans sport wild costumes at BlizzCon 2007

Human mages strut their stuff

On August 3rd and 4th, thousands of gamers from around the world descended on the Anaheim Convention Center for Blizzard's semi-annual BlizzCon 2007 event. During the two-day event, fans saw and test drove upcoming Blizzard games, competed in game tournaments and participated in wacky amateur contests.

BlizzCon 2007's costume contest was among the most interesting events. From the impressively intricate to the strangely disturbing, fans of Blizzard's World of Warcraft MMORPG flaunted some wild costumes.
