How many cosplayers does it take to bring Symmetra from Overwatch to life? In this case, two. Rainyia and C’est La Sara — Lorraine Torres and Sara McMunn — worked together together to craft two Symmetra costumes. Rainyia built the saffron skin and C’est crafted the classic look. They both helped each other out, and the saffron skin was chosen by Blizzard for display. The Saffron Symmetra was made in under two months from fabric, Worbla, and LED elements. Nine total LEDs were used in the costume.
