Overwatch Alice in Wonderland skin idea sends D.Va down the rabbit hole

D.Va is one of Overwatch’s most beloved heroes, so one player decided to come up with a fantastic skin idea that would be the perfect cosmetic for the one and only Hana Song.

If you’ve played Overwatch for any amount of time, it’s easy to see how popular D.Va actually is. Next to Tracer, she might be the one hero most synonymous with Blizzard’s team-based FPS.

She’s also a favorite for custom skin ideas, which are in no short supply seeing as how the game has one of the most creative communities out there. A new concept skin for her drawing from Alice in Wonderland though, is one of the best we’ve seen yet.

Reddit user and D.Va fanatic b3p_si is the one we have to thank for the “Wonderland” skin idea, which we have to admit, would be pretty perfect for the tank hero.

Hana is once again rocking her blonde hairstyle as in the Black Cat skin, with some little black bunny ears thrown in on top. The frilly blue dress is also a great addition, but begs the question of how much closet space the South Korean military is giving to their MEKA pilots.

Her diamond-covered leggings probably wouldn’t go over too well with the Queen of Hearts, but we have no problem them. To finish it off her shoes are incredibly detailed also, rocking little teapots in the heels.

This skin design is so adorable, we probably wouldn’t even mind getting gunned down during a match by it. As one user said in the comments “I would never take this skin off,” and we have to wholeheartedly agree.

Hopefully the massive drought of new D.Va skins will come to an end with Summer Games 2020.

Sadly, this skin isn’t actually in-game, but for those of you who have been patiently waiting for new D.Va cosmetics, there could be relief on the horizon soon.

Overwatch’s Summer Games event is set to kick-off soon, and while we don’t have an official starting date, the event usually gets going in late July or early August, so stay tuned, as news on the next seasonal event should be coming before too long. Hopefully Hana will be one of the heroes to receive new cosmetics, because as any D.Va main will tell you, it’s been far too long.

During the spookiest time of the year, Overwatch’s fans have discovered a cute, quaint easter egg in the game’s Chateau Guillard map, which has enjoyed a Halloween makeover.

Overwatch’s developers over at Blizzard do not take October’s biggest holiday for granted, as they celebrate the costume and candy festivities each year with reworked maps and new cosmetics.

This year, players have taken to exploring the Halloween version of Chateau Guillard, and are appreciating the various adjustments.

Now set under moonlight, the extensive French chateau most popularly known for deathmatch custom games is also becoming known for spooky Halloween details. Having released in 2018’s event, players are still making discoveries in the version of Chateau Guillard at night.

Normally, people get distracted by the fog and darkness, or maybe the jack-o’-lanterns and subterranean coffin.

But, taking a trip to the red study room, Redditor ‘YHJ_JYG_Kryptlock’ has discovered a neat little Overwatch easter egg involving candle wicks.

The new Halloween easter egg appears in Chateau Guillard’s red study room.

As they demonstrate in the clip below, if you shoot each wick of the candelabra, the candles will briefly light. It’s nothing crazy, but that doesn’t stop it from being a neat addition to an already detailed revamped map.

To find this easter egg, you’ll first need to find the red study room.

If you’re facing inward to the chateau from the outdoor area with a jump pad and statue, this room will be toward the back right as you enter. If you’re on the opposite end, at the balcony’s health pack, this will be to your left as you enter the chateau.

  1. Head to the red study room
  2. Locate the standing candelabra, in the back right of the room at the corner near the bookshelf
  3. Shoot the candle wicks
  4. Enjoy the lit candles
  5. Make a wish?

Ultimately, it’s a very simple easter egg, but a cute one. In a map covered in so much dreary darkness thanks to Halloween, lighting candles is a nice contrast.

Of course, it also makes for a decent party trick. So if you load into custom games, feel free to impress your friends by showing off your detailed map knowledge.
