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.

Apex Legends cosplayer summons spooky Bloodhound skin for Halloween

One Apex Legends fan and Halloween enthusiast has brought Bloodhound’s Halloween skin into our realm just in time for the holiday with an awesome and spooky cosplay.

As in many games, Apex’s Halloween skins are some of the most popular and sought after by players, but they’re only available to unlock for a limited time, which makes them prestige items as well.

Since the spooky skins are basically trick or treating costumes for the legends during the seasonal LTMs, it makes sense they make for great cosplay inspiration as well.

Cosplay studio ‘Designedby’ proved this on Reddit with a brilliant-looking take of Bloodhound’s pumpkin-headed ‘Protector of the Patch’ legendary skin from 2019.

Allfather give me candy.

One look at the jack-o’-lantern wearing a pointed hat and anyone who’s played Apex since 2019’s Fright or Fight event. The headgear and the lanterns both have lights producing an eerie orange glow as well. To top it all off they’re rocking a fully-accurate Flatline as well but it, unfortunately, seems to lack a matching Halloween weapon skin to go along with it.

Safe to say if we saw this walking down the street we would forget about our candy and instinctively start scanning for the nearest weapon or loot crate.

If you still want to pick up Protector of the Patch you are actually in luck, because all of the old cosmetics should be coming back to the shop during the 2020 event.

Bloodhound’s Halloween skin should be available to unlock again during the Halloween event.

According to dataminers, the Technological Tracker will also be getting a brand new skin for Halloween 2020 along with Crypto, Gibraltar, and more. Bloodhound’s new skin is visually similar to Protector of the Patch, but with a red recolor.

The creators at Designedby definitely seem to have a soft spot for Apex, as they’ve rolled out awesome Mirage and Caustic cosplays as well in recent months, but pumpkin Bloodhound takes the cake as one of the best costumes for the game we’ve seen (so far).

Blackheart Caustic would also make a great Halloween costume option.

There’s still no official date for when the 2020 Halloween event will get going, but seeing as we’re more than halfway through October already, we’d keep our eyes out this next week for an announcement.

Respawn, after all, has to give players some time to unlock all the cosmetics they can.
