Overwatch has inspired plenty of cosplays with it’s wide range of colorful heroes, but this Hanzo cosplay took things to another level by including his Dragonstrike Ultimate.

Hanzo has been around since Day one in Overwatch and as a result he’s been a favorite muse of cosplaying Overwatch fans.

To make their latest Hanzo cosplay stand out, Stylouz_cosplay, who’s basically the closest thing to a real-life Hanzo out there, added special effects to make it look like he’s actually shooting out a Dragonstrike.

I choose you, Spirit Dragon

Stylouz looks every part of Hanzo with a cosplay that’s definitely on-point and he’s even got Hanzo’s “I’m way too cool for this” facial expression down.

In the video, originally posted to Instagram, Stylouz acts like he’s pulling back on the bow, before releasing Hanzo’s Ultimate, which smashes through a wall.

“It was very hard, I made the bow in foam, [so] I can’t pull the cord like a real one,” Stylouz said about the animation. “I [could] only slowly imitate the move.”

Even though he couldn’t get the full draw on the bow, the level of creativity that went into this Hanzo cosplay makes it one of the best we’ve ever seen.

When will we get a new Hanzo skin?

Hanzo unfortunately did not get a new skin for the 2019 Anniversary event, but there’s always the possibility of him getting a skin for the next event, which is Summer Games and should start in August.

Overwatch Director Jeff Kaplan recently confirmed that more new content would be on the way this summer, besides the new Replay and Workshop modes, but whether that includes a new Hanzo skin or not remains unknown.

Whenever Hanzo receives a new skin, there’s a good chance that Stylouz won’t be far behind with another amazing cosplay for it.

Zelina Vega has been rocking the world with her cosplays lately. Today, she cosplayed Jinx from League of Legends live on stream, and it was one of the best we’ve seen.

Zelina Vega is best known as a professional wrestler in the WWE. But in her free time, Thea Trinidad, which is her real name, loves to game, stream, and cosplay her favorite characters.

She has cosplayed everything from D.VA and Sombra from Overwatch to Loba from Apex Legends in this year alone. Now, Zelina Vega has added yet another popular character to her impressive list: Jinx, from League of Legends.

Zelina Vega nailed the outfit

Zelina Vega matched Jinx’s blue hair and long, braided pigtails, as well as the make-up and outfit. But the best part is, she donned it live on her Twitch channel while playing Among Us with her subscribers.

Jinx, nicknamed “the loose cannon,” is described as “a manic and impulsive criminal from Zaun, Jinx lives to wreak havoc without care for the consequences.”

It sounds eerily close to Zelina Vega as a character, who is known for being a callous and calculated “heel” in the WWE Universe.

Recently, her character was found guilty of poisoning Montez Ford, another pro wrestler who is a member of the Street Profits, and she didn’t seem to mind.

Of course, cosplaying is huge in the League of Legends community. Impressive ones are popping up every week. Still, it’s nice to see one from Zelina Vega herself, who is quickly cementing her place as the cosplay queen.
