In the wake of her Eurovision victory, Conchita Wurst has been the subject of a flurry of news activity, involving topics as diverse as a bearded lady saint, the 2014 floods in the Balkans, and Spain’s World Cup failure. Well now she’s entering the world of gaming. Fans of the popular game Minecraft have produced a Conchita Wurst skin, which can be used by by players as their character.

Minecraft, which boasts an impressive 33 million users, has been available for download since 2009. It’s an “open world” game, so users wander the landscape and get involved in an infinite number of scenarios, without any specific goal. The Conchita Wurst skin has two versions, one can be downloaded here and the other here.

There is also a Minecraft Parody of Conchita’s “Rise Like A Phoenix” video, and it can be found below.

Conchita represented Austria at the Eurovision Song Contest 2014, with the song “Rise Like A Phoenix” and won with 290 points. You can see her grand final performance below:

So what do you think, will Conchita Wurst’s new skin be able to broaden her fanbase to gamers? Let us know.

Kia Ora Robyn (You are from New Zealand.) Being someone from Ireland, I know and I am well aware of the economic crisis here. But the truth is, RTE know that there is a huge amount of public interest in Ireland and that immense popularity is reflected in the viewing figures. But, if RTE want to make the Eurovision even more popular in Ireland, they need a fresh approach and I feel that going big in terms of staging, singers and songwriters is the way to go. Plus, everyone knows that if you want to win Eurovision, you have to… Read more »

Deven – in 2011 and 2012 Jedward’s appearances were a ratings hit for RTE and in both cases everything was done on a very slim budget, even with Jedward paying for their own costumes. Why would RTE want to spent a whole lot more for exactly the same result? People like having options. Maybe you could come up with a low-budget plan to present as a second option. RTE are a public broadcaster whose spending is going to be highly scrutinised by the government and other media. They’ll want to provide good value to Irish TV licence payers and would… Read more »

Hi Robyn No I haven’t looked at the financial side of Eirevision and the songwriters I have suggested. But I am only throwing out suggestions.However, I think that RTE should really put a serious investment into my new show.

But it will cost peanuts to provide a commentator and broadcast the show. Plus the spokesperson does not even have to travel to Ireland… Read more »

There wasn’t hype when Sweden won???
But Sweden and Denmark take good places almost every year and Austria flops so it’s ok

Am I the only one who gets fed up with this Conchita hype? There was not even such a hype when Norway or Sweden won Eurovision…

Deven – In your proposal to RTE, have you covered the financial side of things? It’s all very well suggesting that RTE pay for big-name songwriters to come on board, but the money to pay them has to come from somewhere. RTE does not have the money so do that, so where’s it’s going to come from?

Hi Darren, Harry Quinn, Easpag, Padraig, Mickateriyan and RyanIreland

My letter to Michael Kealy regarding Eirevision has been written and NOW…., I only have to print out my work on my Dad’s printer (My Mum doesn’t have one), send it off to RTE and then I am finished and jetting off to Torremolinos next Thursday for 9 days (I’ll blog when I arrive at my hotel.).

Hopefully there will be a letter in the door from RTE when I get home on the 12th of July.
