The brand reveal for the new Washington D.C. Overwatch League team might not be that much of a surprise after the team’s logo, name and colors were leaked on their official website.

*Update: December 3* The team have officially revealed themselves as the Washington Justice.

After Vancouver revealed their official branding on December 1 during a Canuck’s hockey game, D.C. is the only team left that hasn’t officially revealed what they’re working with.

The Washington logo was included in a leak of new team’s logos last month that turned out to be right on every team so far.

The Washington D.C. Overwatch League team will be known as the “Washington Justice”, with red, white and blue as their team colors and the shield logo from the earlier leak.

The leak was posted to the Competitive Overwatch subreddit by user XblakninjaX and another user provided a screenshot showing skins for Soldier 76 and Symmetra.

The skins look pretty similar to Team USA’s during the Overwatch World Cup, not surprising since both teams use red, white and blue as colors.

We still don’t know when Washington D.C.’s official team reveal will be, but thanks to some enterprising fans, it might not matter.

Halloween is almost upon us, and cosplayers everywhere are preparing for the holiday. This Overwatch Mercy cosplay goes above and beyond when bringing this angelic healer to life and deserves some extra recognition. 

When Overwatch came out back in 2016, there were only three healers, and Mercy was one of them. A lot has changed since then and there are a lot more Heroes, and the hero herself has seen quite a few changes. Despite this, she remains a fan favorite, especially for cosplayers.

There are plenty of awesome OW cosplays out there, but Hanxiaoyue really brings her to life with the help of @Anka_Ephemere on Twitter. The two collaborate for a fantastic rendition with excellent photography and visual effects.

Mercy cosplayer preps for Halloween

Despite the fact that Witch Mercy is Mercy’s Halloween skin, Hanxiaoyue went with the Winged Victory skin with some extra spooky effects, and she nailed it. Starting with her hair, she puts her blonde hair in a ponytail and parts her bangs. It is held back by a golden crown with wing-like ear guards, just like in the cosmetic. To cap it off, she includes the fern-like plants behind her ears.

For her attire, she dons a white tunic with gold embroidery held up with a brown rope. On her arms and legs, she wears bracelets. On her back, she has Mercy’s signature wings, modeled directly off of the skin. Then, there is of course the staff, which is perfect down to the last little leaf.

If the cosplay itself wasn’t impressive enough, the graphic design that goes along with it really gives it life. @Anka_Ephemere includes two shots with Mercy on a dark and fiery battlefield, and then another two with her at what appears to be Ilios Ruins.

The first two images are fitting for the hero, as she is a beacon of hope and light on the battlefield. The Winged Victory skin also based on the Goddess Nike and works well with the other images on Ilios, which is an Overwatch map based on Santorini in Greece.

This is one of the most impressive Mercy cosplays out there, and Hanxiaoyue really brings the character to life along with @Anka-Ephemere’s photography and graphic design.
