An Overwatch cosplayer made waves on Twitter after sharing her stunning transformation into D.Va. The talented artist shared her love for the character with a mind-blowing costume after BlizzCon 2020 was cancelled.

Despite only releasing in 2016, Overwatch has already cemented itself as one of the most popular multiplayer shooters of all time. Players around the world have fallen in love with the title’s gameplay and cast of characters.

Prolific cosplayer Sarah ‘Hendoart’ Hendo celebrated the game’s popular Tank hero, D.Va, by bringing her to life with an epic costume. The artist made waves after creatively showcasing her outfit she made for the now-cancelled BlizzCon 2020.

First launched in 2005, BlizzCon has been a major event in the game’s industry for the last 15 years. Unfortunately Blizzard Entertainment’s annual event was cancelled this year, which has had an impact on many cosplayers who had made incredible costumes for the convention.

Not letting her work go to waste, popular artist HendoArt shared her incredible D.Va outfit on Twitter. Creatively, she admitted in a tweet that she had gone to a Home Depot parking lot to shoot photos of her recreation of the Tank hero. “No BlizzCon this month so I shot DVa in a Home Depot Parking lot,” her post read.

Hendo posed as D.Va while wearing her signature blue and white bodysuit. Her uniform is full of accurate details, from the bright pink trimming, to the bunny logo emblazoned across her chest. She also mirrored the Korean’s facepaint that sits under her eyes, while wearing the iconic headset over her ears.

Despite the makeshift photoshoot, the popular artist truly shines as the Overwatch heroine. If nothing else, the post is a good example of how an incredible cosplay can bring a character to life – regardless of the location that it is showcased at.

While BlizzCon was sadly cancelled this year, fans of the developer still have a lot to be excited for in 2021. Overwatch 2, which was first announced at the annual event in 2019, is rumored to drop sometime in the coming months.

World of Warcraft: Shadowlands is finally here, and cosplayers have been celebrating in the build-up, but one has truly outdone herself with an incredible recreation of Valeera Sanguinar.

World of Warcraft has one of the richest lores and stories in video game history. It’s filled with unique characters in all shapes and sizes and has told their stories for many years.

Now, their stories will continue once again in the latest expansion, World of Warcraft: Shadowlands, which is now live. It revolves around the actions of Sylvanas Windrunner, who has ripped open a portal to the Shadowlands.

It’s certainly a dark timeline, but players are thrilled to have been called back into action. However, it’s hard to find anyone more excited than maywedacosplay, a popular Russian cosplayer named Eva.

Eva celebrated the release of World of Warcraft: Shadowlands by doing what she does best, cosplaying her favorite characters. She’s cosplayed many World of Warcraft characters in the past, and the standard of quality has always been top-notch.

Now, she’s cosplayed Valeera Sanguinar, a beloved blood elf rogue who has never formally joined either Horde or Alliance.

“Glory to Sin’dorei!” she said, quoting one of the blood elves’ most famous lines. “What characters do you want to see in Shadowlands the most?

Eva’s cosplay is stunning from head to toe. The hair, make-up, and green eyes are on point. However, the real highlight has to be the sheer level of quality in the hood, chest-piece, shoulders, bracers, and leggings.

All the pieces have a perfect blend of crimson-red mixed with gold elven seams. They have infamous green Fel crystals slotted into them, which have a long history with blood elves.
