Lucie Pohl is the iconic German actress behind the popular Swiss Overwatch hero Mercy, but she’s taken her acting skills to the next level by literally becoming the Witch herself. 

Mercy’s voice is one of her most iconic traits, and her voice lines bring a smile to Overwatch players everywhere. Her iconic “I am taking care of you” or “heroes never die” are music to DPS and tank players ears, especially when she decides to pocket heal you the whole match.

People love the hero so much that they’ve created skin concepts such as Lovebringer Mercy for her, but no skin has become quite as iconic as her Halloween one. The iconic Witch skin has inspired everything from tattoos to cosplays, and it’s this skin that voice actress Lucie Pohl has chosen to recreate.

Fans everywhere really love Lucie, and this cosplay is yet another reason to appreciate the actress behind our favorite hero!

The Overwatch icon took to Twitter to share a video of her newest project, which included an amazing cosplay of her virtual persona.

The video, which also discusses the reason that Lucie chose to play Mercy, shows the actress taking flight as the Swiss Angel right at the end of the video. Her outfit is spot on. From the iconic witch hat and pumpkin earrings down to her chocolate brown, withered looking outfit, Lucie is really channelling her inner magic.

It’s pretty clear though that the most impressive part of this cosplay are her wings and her Caduceus Staff. The amber details on the wings sparkle in exactly the same way as Mercy’s and the adorable broom style staff has been masterfully recreated so that it looks like it’s just waiting for someone to take a spin through the skies on it.

We’ve got this awesome still of Lucie in her Mercy cosplay too!

It’s not only the cosplay that’s inspiring though, it’s the video as well. Lucie really seems to have fallen in love with Mercy, noting that she is “she’s a real woman, and I think that in video games and entertainment we have lacked that for so long.” It’s amazing to see her passion for the Overwatch healer channelled into such an awesome cosplay.

So do you love Lucie’s cosplay? We certainly do. In Lucie’s retweet she promises that there’s “more to come,” so we can’t wait to see the official images from this campaign. So make sure you check in with us in the future for some more Lucie X Mercy mischief!

Avatar: The Last Airbender fans love Toph for her tomboyish vibe despite being raised like a princess, but a brilliant cosplayer managed to capture her elegant side by creating a refined version of her usual outfit.

The heroes in Avatar: The Last Airbender all bring something unique to the table. However, Toph is particularly remarkable because she managed to become an earth-bending master despite being blind since birth.

Initially, she wanted to prove to her parents that blindness didn’t make her weak. But she became one of the most powerful characters in the show and a valuable Team Avatar member.

Toph Beifong turned her back on a sheltered childhood to become a powerful earth-bender.

Toph is a popular choice among cosplayers too. But while we’ve seen everything from her traditional get-up to an elegant dress she once wore, it’s hard to find one more unique than Emma J.I.Q Rubini’s Art Nouveau Toph.

“You see nothing once, and you’ve seen it a thousand times,” she said, referring to a quote. “Y’all remember when we used to have cons? I’m so happy I went to Katsucon this year since it ended up being the only one I went to.”

“Here’s the cosplay I made for it,” she added. “Art Nouveau Toph! I am incredibly proud of the work I put into it, and I’m happy I got to wear it to such a pretty con! One day maybe I’ll wear it again.”

Emma managed to capture all the crucial elements of Toph’s everyday outfit. It includes the green and beige garments, the hairstyle tucked under a headband with a flower, and of course, contact lenses to match her eyes.

However, she’s added some exotic details in line with a style known as Art Nouveau. It combines elegantly woven tapestries with encrusted jewels and other bits and pieces to add some class.

Cosplayers and their fans know how much time and effort it takes to re-create an outfit faithfully. However, it takes creativity, talent, and courage to add your flair. Emma nailed it, and the thousands of likes she’s getting are a testament to that.
