As you know, we're going to be at gamescom in Cologne, Germany on August 18-22, showing off the first public demo of Guild Wars 2. But that's not all - we're hosting the first ever Guild Wars 2 Costume Contest at gamescom, so start working on your costume now! More details will follow!

This is not gonna end well. :p

So... you have to be there to participate?

edit: oh wait, costume contest, like... wearing a custom? Meh, for a sec I thought it was a "pen and paper" thing :p

edit2: This is actually a smart move from anets side. Cosplay people often draw attention to himself (especially if you're a guy with really bad costume or a female with an awesoe one, hmmm...). And for anet, attention is good. :D

Be careful for what you ask for.

Are there going to be kids at the event?

I fear to look, yet I know I will not be able to stop myself :)

But in truth, some cosplay costumes (and the people in them) can actually work.  

I personally think we can thank the expansion of MMO player market over the last few years targeting at bringing in a wider range of players as one factor leading to a larger variety of people who costume up, rather than only the stereotypical scary ones.  Let's see who shows up in Cologne.

Indeedy.

Though I have to say what we have so far on costumes on GW2 is lacking a bit. I'm thinking that for the sake of future participants, we need to have at least two or three more full length trailers showcasing the world, NPCs and playable characters to help them get in the mood and inspire them to create something more than just generic fantasy costumes. *cough*
