The best and most original cosplay customes make sure you don't recognize whoever is inside it and you can definately not call those a thot. Good luck recognizing someone in a high-quality Azmodan costume.

Someone who will pick an... ehm... revealing... outfit for the cosplay. To be fair, while I think they will attract the attention they crave for, I also think they won't be the ones stealing the show either.

As for the exact definition, it would be something close whore/slut and the likes.

      Republican Senator Josh Howley has proposed a ban on loot boxes and pay-to-win microtransactions in titles for minors, claiming they are preying on user addiction and exploiting children.
      The Chinese government has restricted the number of loot boxes players can open each day and the government of Belgium said they were in violation of its gambling laws, according to BBC.
      Numerous countries including Australia, Denmark, Germany, and the UK had determined that loot boxes had nothing to do with gambling.
      On the other side of the spectrum, there's a chance loot boxes will be ruled illegal in the US in titles popular with minors.
      Republican Senator Howley said of his proposed Protecting Children from Abusive Games Bill:
      As a prime example, Howley singled out King's Candy Crush, where players can purchase a $149 bundle that comes with 1,000 units of its in-game currency.
      The problem, however, does not only affect Candy Crush. The issue of loot boxes first came into light with Battlefront 2. Currently, a large portion of popular games, including Overwatch, PUBG, and Rocket League, all encourage microtransactions.
      The bill first needs to pass the Senate and the House of Representatives, before potentially becoming a law, says Gamespot.

      The amazing art of Blizzard games we all know and love is getting the fine art treatment, as Dutch online art dealership Cook and Becker has added three Blizzard franchises to their growing videogame collection. Said collection already consists of over 60 titles including Bloodborne, Cyberpunk 2077, Dark Souls, Dragon Age, Fallout, Uncharted and many more.
      World of Warcraft already has a collection available and Diablo and StarCraft will be following soon:

        


      About Cook and Becker:

      So, for those fine art collectors among you, you may want to look in to one of these, but they will set you back a bit, with all of the pieces going for $100+.

      Kevin "Cloaken" Johnson announced on Twitter a few days ago that he is leaving the company. The voice of Heroes of the Storm was narrating Hero spotlights before the changes to the game and got later transferred to work on a different game within the company earlier this year.
      We wish him success in his future endeavors!
