With the release of mech pilot Overwatch team can cook up yet another costume worthy of “breaking the internet” – and one artist has taken on the task, themselves.

Artist ‘FluffyDus’ drew a mockup of a “popstar” skin for the character, almost reminiscent of League of Legends’ KPop group, K/DA, due to the outfit’s deep purple and pink hues.

FluffyDus gave D.Va a pair of futuristic, knee-high boots, coupled with a short-sleeved one piece, gauntlets, and fishnet leggings.

BlizzardOne artist decided to change up D.Va’s classic design in a big way.

To further add to the “popstar” image, FluffyDus likewise bestowed D.Va with a pair of stylish headphones, and even styled her hair color to platinum blonde pigtails that end in a pink ombre.

D.Va’s signature bunny sigil can be found on the bust of the fashionable fit, which nearly looks like the design for some type of new Vocaloid – a concept that D.Va herself likely wouldn’t be opposed to.

FluffyDus, DeviantartArtist ‘FluffyDus’ created a stunning “popstar” outfit for MEKA mech pilot D.Va in wake of her 2019 Anniversary skin.

Overwatch fans were largely delighted at FluffyDus’s design, leaving them hungry for an accompanying change to her MEKA mech – although no such concept has yet been released by the artist.

This D.Va mockup follows the release of her 2019 Anniversary skin, which Overwatch’s lead designer, Jeff Kaplan, claimed would “break the internet.”

A sharp contrast to FluffyDus’s “popstar” mockup, D.Va’s official Anniversary skin ended up being a schoolgirl outfit, appropriately named “Academy D.Va.”

While D.Va herself dons scholarly glasses and a school uniform, her MEKA mech got a brand-new paint job, sporting a hot pink and gold exterior that’s easy on the eyes.

Overwatch’s Anniversary Event is currently underway, with more Epic and Legendary skins on the horizon.

Heroes Ashe, Hammond, and Baptiste are likewise set to receive new dance emotes as part of the event, leaving fans waiting for even more content as the event goes on.

While it’s unlikely that fans will see FulffyDus’s exact design in the game, it wouldn’t be out of place for D.Va to receive a Kpop star outfit in the future, should Blizzard start brainstorming even more outfit ideas for the pilot.

An Overwatch racing game might not be all too far off now as a stylish new Workshop mode places heroes behind the wheel, allowing you to drive through any given map.

Driving a car is now possible in Overwatch thanks to the power of the Workshop. Players have modded their own custom vehicle into existence, allowing you to take it for a spin and drift through the game.

It’s not a simple trick that lets your hero move faster than usual. It’s a proper vehicle design that you can take control of and drive around. 

In fact, it’s modeled after the Lamborghini Aventador SV, giving you some style and some speed as you cruise through the world of Overwatch.

Overwatch gameplay
Ever wanted to drive a Lambo? Now you can… in Overwatch.

“I’ve turned Overwatch into a Streetwatch,” GraczCourier’s Gaming revealed on January 21. While it might look a little different to what you had in mind, it functions better than perhaps any Workshop vehicle to date.

A collection of pipes and electricity effects bring the template of the car to life. Players have complete control over the direction of the Lambo, along with its speed as well.

You can drift around corners, activate nitrous, and even change the radio station while you’re in the driver’s seat. Not only that, but the custom mode appears to work across every map in the game.

This means you can boost through Hanamura, take in the sights of Blizzard World, or jet around London on King’s Row. Handling looks to be extremely precise as an accompanying video showcased just what’s possible with the Aventador in Overwatch.

While it’s a blast to drive around, there’s a unique challenge to it as well. How fast can you get through your favorite map? How long can you drift in one attempt? You and your teammates can put it all to the test.

The flashy Workshop mode is available for anyone to check out in-game now. Try it out for yourself with the following Workshop code: 4XQP4
