BlizzCon® Costume Contest

It’s time to ignite your creativity and put your costuming skills to work. Grab some sheets of thermoplastic, wrangle up some foam, and fire up your heat gun—the BlizzCon Costume Contest returns!

Blizzard’s legendary pageant invites you to present your most epic cosplay ensemble live on stage. Whether you don something elegantly simple or awe-inspiringly elaborate, you'll be judged on your creativity, skill, and ability to faithfully recreate—and re-imagine—characters from Blizzard games. Come armed and armored with your finest efforts: the prize pool is bigger than ever, and we will once again honor the first prize winner in a future Blizzard game!

You must sign up online in advance (and have a ticket to the show) to be eligible for one of the 100 open contest slots. Those who sign up afterward will be automatically added to a wait list and may be eligible to compete at the show as space allows. All entries to compete in the Costume Contest must be received by 08:59 AM CEST on July 16, 2014 and meet the requirements in the official rules to be eligible to win.

BlizzCon® Talent Contest

The BlizzCon Talent Contest is back for its second year, and we can’t wait to watch you act, sing, dance, and strut your stuff on camera!

To sign up, you’ll need to create a 2-minute video of you and up to 4 of your friends performing your Blizzard-themed act. Please refrain from doing a lot of post-production work or adding camera-angle shifts—we want to see your act as it would be performed on stage!

As an added bonus, we’ve secured the rights to a few musical compositions that you can use as part of creating your act. You can view the list of songs here, and please make sure to read the official rules. If you have any questions about the details, feel free to drop us an email at BlizzConContest@blizzard.com.

When you’re ready, click the Submit button below to be taken to the submission page, where you can enter your information and provide a link to your video. Keep in mind that all entries must be received by 8:59 a.m. CEST on August 6, 2014 and meet the requirements in the official rules in order to be eligible to win.
