An Overwatch cosplayer turned Mercy’s All-Star 2019 skin into a real life work of art, and it truly is something special.

The first-person shooter’s All-Star skins have been available for a limited time during the Overwatch League’s All-Star Games for the last couple of years. In 2018, fans saw cosmetics for Tracer and Genji, and ones for Mercy and Lucio in 2019.

While the skins aren’t available any more, one talented cosplayer decided to share her take on the coveted Mercy outfit, and it’s perfect.

Cosplayer Tiffany Gordon from ‘tiffanygordoncosplay’ uploaded her rendition of the galactic Mercy skin onto her Instagram account, where fans were blown away by the insane accuracy of the outfit to the game.

Sporting the skin’s signature crescent moon crown, the prop maker truly does look like the loveable healer hero – especially with her flowing purple hair.

What pulls the look together, though, is the beautiful detailing of the character’s wings with their purple and teal tips, and crescent moons that match the crown. And if that wasn't amazing enough already, they actually move too!

Even Mercy’s staff is beautifully recreated, with the cosplayer going into detail about how she made the intricate top section of the weapon in another Instagram post.

The process showed that she used Adobe Illustrator to map out the design of the staff, and put it to another rendering program to turn it into a model, before bringing it to life with a 3D printer, and then sanding and painting the prop.

As for the outfit itself, Tiffany used leather which she then airbrush painted to pull everything together for the perfect cosplay.

This isn’t the first time that the cosplayer has created a Mercy outfit – she’s also made the Pink charity skin, and the Valkyrie one – but her All-Star one is just something really special.

Tiffany’s insanely detailed work obviously resonates with many people, as she boasts over 45,000 followers on her Instagram account at this time of writing.
