Overwatch’s Ana has one of the best skins in the game in the form of Captain Amari. Cosplayer "Lazee" tried her luck at mimicking the costume, and the result is an outfit that looks like it's ripped right from the popular team shooter.
Taking to Reddit, Lazee was eager to show off her creation with Overwatch's cosplay community. “I’m an infrequent OW player, but I am always looking for characters than inspire me to cosplay,” the model said in her post.
“Ana has always been such a unique woman so I finally made her!” she exclaimed, and revealed her own version of Captain Amari.
Captain Amari, finally complete!
This cos was a labor of love due to it being a commission piece as well as a learning curve. Many issues with paint in this one. But I am proud of it and the photos!! pic.twitter.com/bdlvEmTLdi

Lazee went to great lengths to ensure she nailed even the tiniest of details with the hero while still adding her own unique flair.
For instance, the eagle on her beret is much larger than it is in the game. Additionally, while Ana's arms are covered, the cosplayer opted for a short-sleeved look.
The gun that the cosplayer uses is a bit more heavy-duty than the healing-based sniper rifle Ana totes in the game. As model pointed out on Instagram, it’s “not an accurate gun,” but there's not doubt it could still dole out some damage!
In Overwatch lore, Ana was one of the world’s deadliest snipers and the mother of future hero Pharah.
When Ana was in her 50s, she engaged in a sniper duel with Widowmaker, in which the Talon operative was able to land a direct shot and completely destroy her cybernetic eye. This explains why Ana wears an eyepatch in her modern skins.
Speaking of Widowmaker, Lazee may be trying her luck at cosplaying the femme fatale next. “In the future, I'd like to try to make a Widow and maybe a fem Reaper,” she stated on Reddit.
Given how impressive her young Ana getup was, we can’t wait to see what she has in store for with the next Overwatch hero she tries her hand at.
That said, Lazee has also tackled characters such as Black Canary, Jinx from League of Legends, Zero Suit Samus and more. The sky is limit for this cosplayer!
