Two Overwatch cosplayers have done a fantastic job of bringing Moira and Mercy to life in a chilling scene that will have fans in awe.

Ever since Moira came out all the way back in November of 2017, she’s been a favorite subject of Overwatch cosplayers.

Mercy has always been one of the top choices for the game’s fans to dress up as too, but cosplayers frau_haku and melamori.cosplay took their Moira and Mercy to the next level.

Melamori played Atlantic Mercy while frau_haku went as Moon Moira.

Frau posted a series of photos on Instagram showing them as Moon Moira, and melamori as Atlantic Mercy in a ruined building.

Details on both of the costumes are masterfully done, which makes sense since frau_haku has cosplayed as Moira before.

Melamori’s Mercy cosplay is no slouch either and looks just like the in-game skin, which unfortunately was only available for a limited time during the 2019 Overwatch League season.

The images almost seem like they could be a storyboard for some kind of Overwatch show or movie, what they’re saying is anyone’s guess, but the situation doesn’t seem to be going in Mercy’s favor.

On January 20 frau posted the final image of the series, which capped things off with Moira dispatching Mercy in a way that probably feels worse than getting killed by her orb around a corner.

The set is so good it gives the official Blizzard-commissioned Opera Brigitte cosplay to celebrate the Lunar New Year event a run for its money.

Frau_Haku isn’t just an Overwatch cosplayer – she’s also been known to create outfits from games like The Witcher 3, Resident Evil, and more.

My Hero Academica isn’t all about the main characters since there are plenty of excellent minor ones too, and one cosplayer stunned her fans by dressing up as Rabbit Hero Mirko.

Mirko is an awesome character for many reasons. My Hero Academica fans love her tough, straightforward, and tenacious personality. However, they also love the fact she takes on intense situations with a big smile.

Mirko also has a somewhat zen-like approach to life, which is a stark contrast to her ferocity. She takes every day as it comes and has no qualms about putting her life on the line for the greater good. All in all, it makes her the perfect fifth-ranked professional hero.

Rabbit Hero Mirko is one of the toughest heroes in My Hero Academia.

My Hero Academia cosplayers often dress up as main characters and fan-favorites. However, they still show minor characters like Rabbit Hero Mirko some love too, and that’s exactly what Julia (also known as capulet.cos) has done.

“Joining a team is for weaklings,” she wrote, in reference to Mirko’s belief that teams are for cowards.

“More Bunny content for y’all. She’s definitely my favorite character from [My Hero Academia] and [I] love the amount of confidence this cosplay gives me.”

Julia looks absolutely stunning as Rabbit Hero Mirko. She’s included everything from the trademark bunny ears, white hair, fluffy collar, and gloves to a picture-perfect replication of the outfit itself.

It even has the crescent moon symbol on her chest, which ties in with the name of some of Mirko’s moves. Luna Ring, Luna Fall, and Luna Arc all revolve around Mirko’s insanely powerful leg kicks.

Unfortunately, it seems like the wig is a bit of a hassle to wear. “I hate the wig so much,” said Julia. “It tangles so fast.”

Still, it looks fantastic and was definitely worth the trouble. My Hero Academia fans have been pouring in to praise Julia and show their support, and the numbers keep on rising.
