Overwatch has become a popular source of inspiration for cosplayers, and one of the Egg Sisters crafted and donned the not tiny suit of armor worn by Reinhardt. He’s a tank hero, and his armor and weapons give him massive presence and might. The finished build debuted at Dragon Con and features complex armor, a frame system, lifts/stilts, and red LEDs that make the armor glow from the inside in a striking fashion.
