Oshley Cosplay’s Mercy cosplay was built over a year’s time. Though she had experience creating costumes in the past, she had never created wings, clean armor, done gradient dying or programmed an Arduino to control her spinning weapon. Not only did everything come together in time for Blizzcon, she also received an “honorable mention” accolade in a costume contest at the event. Special thanks to Martin Wong, Coslife, Brandon Klemets Photography and The Will Box for the images.
After an unreal amount of hype, Overwatch is finally upon us. Between the open beta, larger-than-life action figures and fan characters that received a makeover from Blizzard, the game series has already ingrained itself into the hearts and minds of fans the world over. In honor of this release, Gamers Heroes takes a look at a cosplay of the healer Mercy.
