Overwatch’s D.Va, also known as Hana Song, used to be a programmer, but she became a professional StarCraft player. She eventually went on to operate mechs to defend the country. Her costume is colorful, and she wears a bodysuit covered in all sorts of emblems. That factor makes cosplaying the character tricky, but cosplayer Jen Takeda worked with an artist — Gun Head Design — who designed the pattern. She says:
You can either make a pattern using photoshop/illustrator/ect yourself, or commission an artist make one, which is what I did since my digital art skills are terrible. There are a few online retailers you can then send the template to who will print and also sew it together for you (you can choose to sew it yourself and they’ll just send you the printed fabric with some of these stores).
She got unfinished versions of the headset and gun by Gateway Props and painted them.
