Overwatch cosplayer shows D.Va’s sinister side with Harley Quinn mashup

Overwatch may not have major crossover events with other entertainment properties like Fortnite does, but that hasn’t stopped fans from combining their love of Blizzard’s hero shooter with DC Comics in the form of cosplay.

In a really innovative costume, cosplayer Lula Cosplay merged Overwatch’s MEKA Squad with the Suicide Squad by transforming D.va into Harley Quinn and the result is spectacular.

Both Harley Quinn and D.va are popular characters to cosplay in their own right, so combining them into one and merging the fanbases is a really cool concept.

D.Va’s pink and blue attire was replaced with the classic black and red adorned by the DC villain when she first debuted in 1992’s Batman: The Animated Series.

The pink warpaint on the South Korean pilot’s face was changed to red as well, maintaining the contrasting theme.

In one photo the cosplayer opted to show off her black wavy hair, but in others, she decided to dye it red and black as opposed to donning a jester hat that the character wears on the TV show.

Finally, as a nice little touch, Lula decided to add a neat Quinn symbol to her leggings where the MEKA text would normally go.

A digitally modified picture even showcased what type of mech this D.va-Quinn hybrid would pilot and it too matches the color scheme of the cosplay itself, though it would probably come packed with a bit more explosives than meets the eye.

This isn’t the first outfit Lulu crafted and it certainly won’t be the last. In the past, she’s dressed up as Gwen Stacy Venom Spider-Man, Mystique from X-Men, and even Stain from My Hero Academia.

Given her talent at mixing up franchises and merging them into something unique, we can’t wait to see what she has up her sleeve for her next creation.

Maybe she’ll even try incorporating the more modern version of Harley Quinn with D.va and see if that packs the same punch.

Valorant cosplayer re-invents herself as quirky genius Killjoy

Killjoy might be the inventive genius in the Valorant roster, but one of her biggest fans deserves the title too after she dished up a remarkably accurate cosplay. 

Valorant’s Agents are all unique. They have different strengths and weaknesses in certain situations. Killjoy, for example, is an absolute menace to face due to her ability to crowd control using gadgets.

However, that’s not the only reason fans love her. She’s hip, quirky, and a genius both on and off the battlefield. Interestingly, she’s a popular choice among cosplayers too, probably because something is alluring about her vibrant style.

Killjoy might be a genius, but she acts and dresses in a way that many people can relate to.

Luminavira recently shared a picture of her incredible Killjoy cosplay on the Valorant subreddit, and it made quite an impression. It’s only been up for several hours and has already gained more than 500 upvotes and received plenty of positive feedback.

“Everyone makes fun of German efficiency,” she said, reiterating one of Killjoy’s lines. “Just keep laughing as you use all my gear.”

“I can finally show you some Killjoy pictures,” she added. “I am so proud of this Cosplay, and I love this girl so much. I know a lot of you guys don’t know Valorant, but I hope you like it anyway.”

Luminavira made the costume herself, and she has done a fantastic job. The beanie, glasses, jacket, t-shirt, ripped jeans, gloves, and shoes all look like the real deal. It’s a perfect blend of green, yellow, grey, and purple.

The accessories were a nice touch as well. She included the bracelet, hip bag, leg strap, and even a replica rifle. What’s more, the attention to detail is second to none, and people were quick to notice.

“Wow, that’s amazing!” said the top comment in the Reddit thread. “You got even the tiniest details right. Even the pants are ripped in the same place. You look fantastic!”

“Introducing the real-life killjoy. This is seriously amazing!” said another. It’s a sentiment that others have shared, and for a good reason. Luminavira managed to bring her to life in the most incredible way.

Luminavira is all smiles, and rightfully so. Like many cosplayers dedicated to the craft, she put in a lot of time and effort, and it shines through. Capugraphy’s top-notch photography played a part too.

It’s always nice to see your favorite characters come to life. Valorant players, especially those who love Killjoy, have been truly mesmerized by this piece. Luminavira deserves all the praise she’s getting.
