Overwatch Lúcio Costume with a Musical, Lighted Prop
Cosplayer Neverending Dreamz did something different for his Overwatch Lúcio costume. He leveled up the prop gun with lighting and sound — that special touch is on top of all the hours and work he put into making Lúcio’s armor. He estimates he spent 340 hours to complete the costume. He says about the prop gun:
Its being powered by a custom battery. the gun is actually a 8 inch sub woofer with two 4 inch speakers on the side. They are being run through a amp and is blue toothed to my phone! The Leds go to the music from my gun and everything, It even made the shirt, the pants, the belt, everything!
You can watch a video showing off the sounds and lights at Facebook.
