Runes of Magic publisher Frogster brings the spectacle to Gamescom in Germany next month, with a Runes-themed fashion show, a costume contest judged by model Gina-Lisa Lohfink and a performance by a cappella metal band Van Canto.
Frogster's Gamescom plans feature enough entertainment to warrant its own separate show. First they've got a Runes of Magic fashion show, featuring designs from Berlin-based design studio Textilzelle, interpreting the free-to-play MMO's seven different character classes. The event, presented by Florian Kamolz (formerly of German gaming TV channel GIGA) and German Playboy cover model Gina-Lisa Lohfink, will run on Friday August 20 and Saturday August 21.
Here's a shot of Gina-Lisa, for those unacquainted.
The fashion show will also feature a Runes of Magic costume contest, with Gina-Lisa acting as one of the judges. The best fan-made costumes will score RoM-theme Casemod PCs, seen below.
Rounding out the event will be a performance by Van Canto, one of the most interesting a capella groups I've ever seen. They perform metal music using only their voices and a drum kit. It's extremely impressive to watch.
They'll be debuting the video for Runes of Magic song "Magic Taborea", along with other tunes from their catalogue.
Gamescom 2010 runs August 18-22. We've already started packing.
