The First Cosplay of Overwatch’s New Character Moira
Cosplay is a big deal at BlizzCon, a convention focused on Blizzard’s games and work. When they announce new characters for their games, it’s only a matter of time before someone puts a costume together — even if the outfit is only based on concept art or a single promo image. At the most recent BlizzCon earlier in November, they did something cool by hiring a company to make a costume for Overwatch’s new character Moira. They revealed the addition at the convention, but they made the announcement more special by having a model on hand bringing the character to life.
Blizzard worked with Henchmen Studios for the costume and props, and they collaborated with Chrissy Lynn on the wig, Keltonfx for the makeup, and Libby Ives Pole Skills for modeling.
Look below to see an image of the costume showing off the lighting, and watch the below video for a Q&A session about the building of the costume:
We are angry, frustrated, and in pain because of the violence and murder of Black people by the police because of racism. We are in the fight AGAINST RACISM. George Floyd was murdered, his life stolen. The Adafruit teams have specific actions we’ve done, are doing, and will do together as a company and culture. We are asking the Adafruit community to get involved and share what you are doing. The Adafruit teams will not settle for a hash tag, a Tweet, or an icon change. We will work on real change, and that requires real action and real work together. That is what we will do each day, each month, each year – we will hold ourselves accountable and publish our collective efforts, partnerships, activism, donations, openly and publicly. Our blog and social media platforms will be utilized in actionable ways. Join us and the anti-racist efforts working to end police brutality, reform the criminal justice system, and dismantle the many other forms of systemic racism at work in this country, read more @ adafruit.com/blacklivesmatter
