This lady won. Rightly so, methinks, although the competition was fierce. The costume contest was breathtaking: 98 folks in costume, and some of them just outrageously good. This gal had to shuffle in sideways from between the stage curtains, but it was worth it.
Unfortunately the judges picked two rather average runners up, seemingly based on their choice of game rather than the complexity or adventurousness of outfit. The only Diablo entrant won, even though comparatively speaking, her outfit - while sweet - wasn't a patch on some of the WoW priests and warlocks on stage.
Blizz don't provide a special posing area for the costumers, a la Tokyo Game Show, which is a pity, because I'd have loved to have got a closer look at some of them.
