Stumped for Halloween costume ideas? Looking for some inspiration? One cosplayer has her plans already sorted, getting ready for the occasion with a stunning Witch Mercy cosplay.

One fan-favorite every year is Witch Mercy from Overwatch. The resident Swiss medic has a Halloween skin in the game, where she drops the lab coat for a black and orange dress, capped off with thigh-high heels and a witches’ hat.

Witch Mercy is one of the most popular characters to cosplay come Halloween.

It’s a popular choice within the Overwatch community to cosplay at this time of year, and with good reason. It fits right in with the Halloween theme. If you were looking for some inspiration to get your Witch Mercy cosplay going though, just take a look at what ‘cosmicalumni’ has done.

The cosplayer has worn this costume to conventions a few times ⁠— namely at BlizzCon this time last year, which fell on Halloween.

It’s a perfect recreation of the Swiss medic dressed up in her own Halloween costume, minus the Caduceus staff. From the perfectly tailored dress, to the amazingly manicured wings, every part of cosmicalumni’s cosplay looks straight out of Overwatch itself.

She even created the little vital notebook that hangs from Mercy’s sash in the skin. Every little detail was accounted for, and cosmicalumni would definitely be the talk of the town if she was able to float around trick or treating this year.

In preparation for next year though ⁠— where festivities will hopefully return ⁠— she might be able to have the Halloween-themed staff ready. “One day I’ll have my beautiful broom Caduceus staff,” she said in her latest post.

For now though, cosmicalumni will be tied up with both her Star Wars and Overwatch-themed cosplays. She has stated she wants to create many more Mercy cosplays, so expect to see more of those if you are a fan of the Blizzard franchise.

Cosplayer ‘daniella.claire.cosplay’ depicted the hilarious scene with her transformation into the acrobatic fighter. The artist nailed the character’s look, capturing her upbeat personality by holding her long braided hair in her hands.

Photographer ‘thegeekstrong’ took a shot of Daniella posing in front of the shore while wearing the character’s iconic white and red Fire Nation swimsuit. The outdoor backdrop truly brings the Ember Islands to life.

In another post on Instagram, the cosplayer faithfully re-created the moment from the episode where Ty Lee asks a beachgoer to stand in front of the sun to create shade for her to rest in. 

This isn’t the first time the artist has dressed up as the Avatar heroine. In September, she collaborated with cosplayer ‘minakess’ who portrays Princess Azula. Daniella wore Ty Lee’s regular pink outfit while sitting next to the series’ villain.

Despite ending in 2008, the Last Airbender has seen a major revival in popularity after Netflix added it to its platform in April. The Nickelodeon animation celebrated its 15th anniversary in 2020.

Those interested in the franchise can watch every single episode on the streaming service right now. The series sequel, The Legend of Korra, is also available, and takes place 100 years after the story of Avatar Aang.
