Overwatch fans are known for their awesome cosplays and one of the latest Bastion outfits from boujee_cosplay is certainly no exception.

One of the original heroes in Overwatch, Bastion is definitely loved by fans and players, unless they’re on the opposite team that is.

Bastion may not be dominant force he used to be on the competitive ladder, but he still sees plenty of use in certain situations and by people who still only play Bastion.

The Omnic has inspired plenty of cosplays in the past and one of the latest from boujee_cosplay, goes to show love for the character isn’t going away anytime soon.

A new look for Bastion

Boujee_cosplay decided to put a unique spin on Bastion, with an original Louis Vuitton-inspired skin.

They even included plenty of Ganymede along with it, because a great Bastion skin is nothing without the adorable bird sidekick.

The photos were taken by Satin Dress Photo, who even included edited version to make it look like Louis Vuitton Bastion is holding down the second point on Volskaya.

The cosplay is plenty impressive on its own, but it’s really cool to compare the unedited version to the edited version to see just what was changed.

Overwatch Cosplay isn’t slowing down in 2019

Dressing up as Overwatch characters is still hugely popular even after almost 3 years since the game’s release and we’ve already seen plenty of great ones in 2019 so far.

Blizzard just got done hosting their own cosplay competition, and Team France took first place with an incredible Torbjörn Magni outfit.

It’s tough to say what exactly will happen in Overwatch gameplay-wise during 2019, but there’s sure to be plenty of awesome cosplays to come.

Overwatch cosplayer sprints into battle as Soldier 76 with female twist

Cosplayers are no strangers to creating unique outfits based on Overwatch heroes and Hendoart proved to be no different with her stunning female take on Soldier 76.

Soldier 76 is one of the original classic Overwatch heroes, having been around since the game’s launch. With his iconic red, white, and blue jacket, mask, plus heavy pulse rifle, Jack Morrison can easily stand out in a crowd.

That all said, cosplayer and streamer Sarah ‘Hendoart’ Hendo decided to tackle the DPS hero from her own perspective, in what she called a “mini gender bend.”

As you can see from the photos, Hendo absolutely nailed the look of Soldier 76 getting the jacket, gloves, gun, and even biotic field down pat.

Meanwhile, she also added some of her own flair. Thanks to her feminine figure, the outfit manages to take on a life of its own, especially with her flowing brown hair behind 76’s mask.

However, the best part comes in the form of a little video she created with a fellow Mercy cosplayer. In the clip, the battle-scarred Hendo begs for healing and even “spams” for it – a bit of a meme in the Overwatch community.

“Just a battle-damaged Soldier and a Mercy who dgaf about me,” she captioned the video.

Eventually, the Mercy begins to nurse Hendo back to health and starts wrapping her arm in a bandage, and evaluates the rest of the hero’s injuries.

Hendo’s cosplays aren’t limited to just Overwatch either. She has cosplayed as many different DC and Marvel superheroes including Spider-Man, Harley Quinn, Joker, Mary Jane, and Venom just to name a few.

Soldier 76 isn’t the only Overwatch cosplay she’s done either. In the past, she has done many different takes on the tank hero D.Va including her School Girl and Tangerine themed skins.

With Overwatch 2 on the way and multiple more heroes coming with the sequel, this likely isn’t the last we’ve seen from Hendoart and quite frankly, we can’t wait to see what else she has in store.
