Cosplay: short for Costume Play; is a type of performance art in which participants don costumes and accessories to represent a specific character or idea [1].

Cosplay is popular for many fictional properties, including Blizzard's. Diablo cosplay has long been popular owing to the many colorful and creative character looks seen in the game. The fact that most of the characters are humans, or at least roughly human in shape helps with cosplay as well since clothing and props, rather than elaborate construction and costumes, are all that's required.

Blizzard hosts a Costume Contest at each Blizzcon convention, with prizes and fame for the best outfits.
