Halloween is still on my mind, so I couldn’t help but notice this fantastic Overwatch Witch Mercy costume by Rhea of DMZ Cosplay. She completed a photo shoot in the cosplay right before the holiday, and it has a very fall feel. She worked with her photographer from Sohnophotos to “capture the vibe of the various load screens from the game.”
DMZ Cosplay made the costume entirely by hand combining materials such as foam, plexiglass, and fabric. It’s particularly neat to see how the broom took shape. It was initially formed from EVA foam in various colors, covered in Plastidip, and then painted to match Mercy’s in game broom. She says:
The entire broom is made of EVA foam with a PVC pipe core. It breaks down to two pieces for easier transport. The entire Mercy costume is also handmade by me.
See the broom in a couple of different stages below.
