Each year the cosplay on display at BlizzCon
showcases just how much talent and dedication goes into bringing classic characters to life. And with franchises like Warcraft
, and Diablo
- it's no wonder the cosplay community around Blizzard
is as vibrant as it is. After a sizable community vote, four teams from NSW, VIC, NZ, and SA have been tasked with bringing specific Overwatch heroes and skins to life.
With Team NSW
(Yasemin Arslan, Danielle Debs, and Jarrah Brouwer) tasked with recreating Socialite Ashe and B.O.B.
(Stephanie Vander Heyden, Damien Vander Heyden, and Ashleigh Priest) given Shieldmaiden Brigitte.
(Clare Beaton, Oarin Tremont, and Tim Nicholas) as Greifhardt Reinhardt
And finally, Team NZ
(Sanit Klamchanuan, Victoria Gridley, and Johanna Friederike) recreating Lu Bu Reaper.
With the winning team, as voted by the community and a panel of judges being awarded with tickets, airfares, and accommodation to attend BlizzCon this November. Where as part of the celebration they'll be able to showcase their creation in front of tens of thousands of Blizzard fans.
