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.

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.

Valeera Sanguinar is a popular character in World of Warcraft: Shadowlands.

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.

It’s a phenomenal cosplay that deserves all the praise, and the high-quality photography makes it even better.

World of Warcraft: Shadowlands has already set the world on fire. But Eva’s cosplay will undoubtedly add to the excitement.
