Kazplay’s impressive Hogger cosplay for BlizzCon 2023 is taking the gaming world by storm!
BlizzCon 2023 is just around the corner, set to kick off on November 3 and 4 this weekend. Fans are eagerly gearing up for the grand event. And as the excitement builds, one name in the cosplay community has become a focal point of attention: Kazplay.
On their Twitter account, the talented cosplayer showcased a tantalizing sneak peek at their costume this year. Despite being a work-in-progress, their take on the Hogger has left fans in awe. It perfectly captures the essence of WoW’s iconic elite mob. Other than the striking appearance, it also features actual Hogger sounds. Thus, adding an impressive level of authenticity to the character.
Kazplay also provided insights into the intricacies of their transformation. To fit into the costume, they position their head between the shoulders. If you’re concerned about the strain on their back while hunching down, worry not. They can stand upright just fine. One of the costume’s arms is their real arm. However, the other is fake, as their other real arm is responsible for puppeting the Hogger’s head movements. Their vision is limited, relying on a hole in the neck to observe their surroundings and ensure safe navigation. To make this all possible, they remain in constant communication with their husband via a walkie-talkie, who guides their every move. For a clearer understanding of how it works, you can check out their videos:
