An Overwatch Mercy Cosplay with an Art Nouveau Twist
Don’t succumb to pressure when you’re making a costume. Even if you’re close to the event and your ensemble isn’t ready or if a supply or component you order doesn’t look quite right, don’t panic. Look to Ariel Dunn, a.k.a. chickwhoknitscosplay, for inspiration on improvising and getting the job done. She debuted her inventive take on Mercy from Overwatch at Emerald City Comic Con, and she was finishing the costume in the days before the convention. The below photo of the wings pre-paint was taken five days ahead of the event. But she got it all done.
And she displayed resourcefulness when the wig she ordered wasn’t the exact color she wanted; she used thin washes of paint to change it to the desired hue.
