San Diego Comic Con is one of those big events on the calendar of any person that loves gaming, comics and SCI-FI stuff. Intersecting with all of these categories, Star Wars The old Republic will have a big presence at the show this year. Beside having a booth on the show floor (and probably a panel like last year) there is going to be a big hands-on gaming area available at a hotel next to the convention, so a lot more people will be able to get their hands on the game without the need to queue for hours.
To fully celebrate the occasion in proper Comic Con style Bioware is holding a Costume Contest. They are inviting people to dress as their favorite characters from Bioware games (including SWTOR) and the contest itself will be held in the Bioware Base in the Hilton Gaslamp hotel. Here are the most important details if you want to participate or just watch the contest:
What it is:
BioWare’s first ever costume contest showcasing costumes based off of any BioWare game. It is free for all who wish to participate in the contest or be in the audience and watch. Some entries will be individuals; others will be groups with a shared theme. The large stage in the BioWare Base in the Hilton Gaslamp hotel will feature excellent viewing for all in the audience as well as the focal point for costumed entries to show off their costumes.
When & Where:
7:00p.m. Friday, July 22 at the BioWare Base in the atrium of the Hilton Gaslamp hotel. People in costume are advised to arrive before 6:30 pm to allow video recording, photography and setting up of the contest. Any photos or video taken must be for personal, non-profit use only! You are welcome to visit the BioWare base in costume any day during the convention, but the costume contest will only take place Friday Night July 22.
How To Enter:
Anyone is welcome to enter and the contest is open to all who wish to attend. You must be present to take part and present to win any awards or prizes.
A panel of guest judges, assembled from BioWare staff and/or special guests will select the costume or costumes they think are best.
