I grew up with both of the Lost Vikings games on the Sega Genesis and the Super Nintendo and I have been playing World of Warcraft (WoW) off and on with my friends since 2006 and I am finally attending Blizzcon!


I do not play Starcraft or Diablo. I only really play WoW here and there with some friends. Every now and then we will go through months of playing it and then take several months off. The thing is, the Warlords of Draenor expansion is being released on my birthday (November 13th) and Blizzcon 2014 will be taking place on Nov 7-8th.

That means during that time, I will be able to play a bit of Warlords of Draenor and see some panels based on it and learn some more information!

I also have recently become a huge con addict (typically Anime cons).


I have recently been cosplaying as Kirito from Sword Art Online so I am considering cosplaying as him but with a WoW twist so that I don’t get TOO much hate. If the Blizzcon attendees are anything like the trolls on the WoW forums, then I am definitely going to be preyed upon at the convention for cosplaying as an Anime character! My excuse is that Kirito plays MMORPGs and the author Reki Kawahara was greatly influenced by World of Warcraft when writing Sword Art Online.

I am still trying to figure out how to put a WoW twist to the cosplay! Maybe I can find an Alliance cloak to wear or something.

I will definitely write about my experience after I have attended!
