Draugrs invade Dragoncon & PAX

Normally you expect to find Draugrs lurking in dungeons and tombs of Skyrim. This weekend a pair made their way across the country.

Skyrim fans Bill & Brittany Doran made their annual trip to Atlanta’s Dragoncon dressed as a pair of Draugr Deathlords. Taking advantage of the long weekend. we were fortunate to also see them on the final day of PAX Prime in Seattle. They posed for [many] pics, checked out The Elder Scrolls Online, and were nice enough to talk to everyone about their costumes.

Be sure to check out Bill’s blog, Punished Props, for an extensive look at the countless hours spent creating the Draugrs’ weapons, armor, and body suits. And as a bonus, see the costumes in action in the video below.

PAX Prime 2012: Come to our booth and Dishonored Party

Tomorrow morning, we’ll be off to Seattle to prepare for one of our favorite events of the year, PAX Prime! This year marks our fifth year at the event, and as always, we’ve got some great stuff in store.

Those with passes to the show (the event is already sold out) will want to visit our booth to play both Dishonored and DOOM 3 BFG Edition. While you’re there, make sure to pick up some cool Bethesda swag. Our booth is open Friday, Saturday, and Sunday from 10 AM – 6 PM.

We’re also hosting a Dishonored community event on both Friday and Saturday evening in conjunction with the guys from iam8bit that you won’t want to miss. Both nights we’ll be at the Stimson-Green Mansion — just minutes away from the convention center from 7.30pm-11.30pm. We’ll be serving food and drinks,  giving away prizes, and more. You’ll also have your first chance to play Dishonored’s Boyle Party mission, which PC Gamer’s Tom Francis  recently declared, “… one of the best missions I’ve played in any game.”

Interested in attending? Look for folks handing out invitations – both at our booth and outside the convention center. You’ll need one to get in. And on both nights, the event is first-come, first-serve.

See you there!
