Video game conventions are usually excellent places to find and take pictures of people dressed up as video game characters. One step above the do-it-yourself costume player is the company hired spokes model. These people are paid by the video game developers and publishers to represent their video game characters at trade shows and conventions. 2009's E3 event had this magical booth babe promoting Sony's Everquest Online game as the ingame character Firiona Vie. Firiona is a royal high elf in the world of EverQuest, and has appeared on the cover of almost every expansion to the original EverQuest game.
