Fans fell hard for the Honeydew Mei skin that came with Overwatch‘s Anniversary 2019 event, and one talented cosplayer created an incredibly refreshing outfit to show her love.

Honeydew Mei was by far the best-received skin to arrive in the game’s latest event, but sadly, it’s now unavailable until next year. Though who knows – we might see another skin for her in the Summer Games.

Despite the skin not being available again for a while, talented Overwatch fan Sado ‘hoihoisado’ has taken her love of the melon-themed outfit to the next level.

“Freeze! Don’t move!”

The cosplay features Honeydew Mei’s signature green melon tea overalls, complete with the little melon motif on the apron, and the red ribbon on the hat.

hoihoisado’s outfit is almost perfect compared to the actual skin in-game, and it’s simply crazy just how much detail she put into making it look accurate – even down to the orange polka dots on her socks.

The best part about the cosplay photoset is that hoihoisado decided to shoot it in what is presumably a bubble tea store, truly bringing the essence of Honeydew Mei to life.

It is simply unbelievable just how realistic her cosplay rendition is, and how much effort she put in to making it feel so authentic to the skin in the game.

She’s not the only a-Mei-zing cosplayer

Another Honeydew Mei fan decided to put her own spin on the skin with an incredible cosplay, which she showed off during E3 2019.

Cosplayer ‘Persia XO’ is a video host for popular video game website GameSpot, and decided to sport her outfit during the company’s E3 presence.

Cosplayers are some of the most creative human beings on the planet, and breathe life into all sorts of different characters in amazing ways. It is simply crazy how talented some of these people are.

League cosplayer descends from the heavens as amazing Dragonslayer Diana

Diana has descended from the heavens of Mount Targon here on Earth ⁠— or so you could be mistaken into thinking. Scottish cosplayer ‘anaelic’ has once again delivered the goods for League of Legends fan, putting on an epic display with her Dragonslayer Diana cosplay.

Seeing a Diana cosplay for League of Legends is rare. However, finding an exquisite one is almost impossible. The Scorn of the Moon, with her heavy armor and massive Moonsilver blade, isn’t up there with one of the popular champions to cosplay.

However, that hasn’t stopped anaelic from creating one of the best ⁠— if not the best ⁠— Diana cosplay with her incredible rendition of the Lunari’s Dragonslayer skin.

The Dragonslayer skin for Diana is one of her most intricate, but that didn’t stop anaelic.

Anaelic has been working on her Dragonslayer Diana cosplay since lockdown began. She was originally going to take it to conventions, but with 2020 stopping all of those, she instead used the project as motivation.

“This project has instead been my distraction, the thing that’s kept me motivated to stay productive, and I’m so proud that I at least have this to show for all the extra time I’ve had,” she said on Instagram after completing her cosplay.

You can tell just how much effort she put into it right from the first glance. Anaelic has managed to recreate the Aspect’s sunset-colored armor perfectly, not forgetting a single panel on Diana’s intricate outfit.

She managed to keep all the pieces together with velcro, although the cosplay is ⁠— understandably ⁠— very hard to get around it.

“I honestly don’t know how I’m going to survive a full day at a con in this cosplay because it is so hard to move about it! It was well worth it though because we got some amazing photos,” she added.

Anaelic also considered all the small details ⁠— she recreated the smoky effect on her blade with a smoke machine and LED lights built into the crescent. The cosplay is not only one of the best Diana ones we’ve seen, but one of the best cosplays of the year. Period.

The Scottish cosplayer isn’t stopping here though. If you’re wondering what anaelic’s next project is, wonder no more. She is currently working on a Spirit Blossom Lillia cosplay, and she’s trying to make it perfect from head-to-hoof. We’ve even covered her progress on it so far!
