D.Va got left out in the cold, again, when it came to Halloween skins this year, so some fans have taken it upon themselves to give everyone’s favorite K-pop star her own spooky makeover.

The skin was created by Twitter user and Overwatch fan Red_Masca, and gives D.Va and her mech skeleton suits that would fit right into the game’s Halloween lineup.

D.Va herself has been given white hair and makeup that match the skeletal theme, and even a little skull charm for her Bunny Blaster.

Her mech is really the highlight of this concept though, with a terrifying demon skull complete with horns on top of the cockpit.

Altogether, this concept would perfectly blend in with the current lineup of Overwatch Halloween skins, D.Va mains wouldn’t mind seeing it included either.


Red has put a ton of art on his Twitter, but this D.Va skin seems to be one of his first times reimagining Overwatch heroes.

Overwatch art is a big part of what makes the game’s community so great, so hopefully Red keeps making his awesome interpretations, for the sake of all the D.Va players out there.


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.
