Blizzcon 2011 Ticket sales announced! (Also, the official unofficial Blizzcon podcast!)

That’s right, if you aren’t actively following Blizzard (or if any of your friends aren’t) to know when the tickets are going to go on sale, now you know!

From Blizzcon.com:

On-Sale Dates:

Saturday, May 21 at 10 a.m. Pacific Time
Wednesday, May 25 at 7 p.m. Pacific Time

Price: $175 USD each (limit 4 per household)

What’s Included:

  • One BlizzCon badge that grants access to the convention
  • BlizzCon goody bag containing exclusive swag (contents to be announced)
  • Opportunity to participate in a limited-time, online BlizzCon merchandise sale before the show (details to be announced)
They are also selling tickets to the Charity Dinner this year (which we would LOVE to be able to go to, but with the expenses of costumes this year, it isn’t possible!) for $500 a piece, which of course includes your ticket to Blizzcon. You can read more about that here
Pocket and I are also super excited for Blizzcon, and have started recording awesome podcasts full of us doing nothing but talking about Blizzcon! This isn’t going to be every episode, we’re going to keep them structured for the most part, but there will be some Blizzcon goodness in every episode until Blizzcon (and maybe even some episodes after!) From the Original Pocket Podcast blog: “We have declared ourselves the “Official Un-official Podcast for Blizzcon 2011.” What does this mean? Well basically for the next 6 months we will be your #1 podcast for Blizzcon 2011 fix. That means new segments including Blizzcon…  Discussion Forum updates, Cosplayer Roundups, Group gathering/meet-up announcements, Convention announcement and update news coverage, Blizzcon-related interviews with fans and cosplayers, AND SOOOO MUCH MORE Blizzcon!”
Are we excited about them announcing ticket sales? YES! But are we excited about the price increase that they seem to be throwing on us every year? No…. that doesn’t mean we aren’t going to pay it, though. They’ll probably keep raising the price until there’s a riot, and really, I love Blizzcon enough to pay for it. It just makes it harder for other people who have to also pay for expensive plane tickets, etc, to make it. Sad.
Of  course, that isn’t really the point of this post. Chances are, you already knew about the ticket prices. I just wanted to make this post to say that OF COURSE we’re going to be there! Whether we get tickets or not (though it’s very unlikely that we won’t, we have a pretty good system going on with friends), we will be there, in full costume as usual!

Well, what costumes? Mario will be going as a Deathwing Cultist (pictured above). He has chosen a simpler costume this year in order to be able to help me as my handler, since we absolutely have to have one this year! I will be going as… well, I can’t tell you yet, sadly. I have to make sure that I can pull it off (there are several factors that can get in the way of us finishing it!) but as soon as I can announce it, it will be announced here! 
Yay Blizzcon!

  1. Cool. Is your costume Diablo related?

    Speaking of Mario, will we see some post about his witchdoctor costume?

    Cheers.

    • Nope, going with another game costume this year. There weren’t any other characters that we felt we could do justice.

      Mario is going to try and write up some posts on his Witch Doctor, but they may be a bit slower than the ones I’ve been putting up, he works a bit more than I do and he’s working on several commissions at the moment as well.
