Blizzard World of Warcraft Costume Contest

Blood Elves at BlizzCon

Last month a convention called BlizzCon took place in Anaheim, CA. Blizzard is the company that makes the online multiplayer game called World of Warcraft and this is their convention. That's the downlow for those of you who don't already know. And my guess is most of you reading this might have already known about WOW since it is one of the most popular games in the world with something like 8 million users.

In the game, you make your own character and you have a few different fanatasy characters to choose from, like elves, dwarves, and such. All types of characters based on original Tolkien like ideas further developed in the D&D world.
All of these fantasy characters lend themselves to great costume ideas and the participants are extremely creative. The combination of these two things makes for one of the best costume competitions I have ever seen in my life! (And I have seen quite a number of them!)
And here is a series of 3 videos of the costume contest. The videos might be a bit long, but for anyone who loves costumes or the game, they are well worth it. Each costume is better than the one before it. There are about 150 entrants and not a dud among them. (Except for maybe Chuck Norris!) Kudos to all the entrants for your amazing talent and imagination to boot.

I like the costume with the elf ears. I am looking for ears this size, or longer, to do a Poison elf outfit. Anyone know anywhere I can get them?
