Cosplayer Spotlight NYCC 2016: Overwatch Takeover!

Gaming has always been a pretty big well to draw from for cosplayers.  However, this year players got a bit of a gift thanks to the developers at Blizzard.  In May 2016 Overwatch released to gamers all over the world and became an instant success with gamers.  For cosplayers it created a bit of a firestorm.  The characters were vibrant, full of personality and some were easily accessible for the cosplaying enthusiast.

NYCC 2016 served as a prime place to cement Overwatch as one of the new cosplay phenomena as the floor was littered with Tracers, D.Va’s, Soldier 76’s and even a Reinhardt (although I didn’t get a decent picture of him).  It became an adventure to find all 21 characters roaming the floor and by then end of the 4 day convention I almost succeeded.

Much love for all the cosplayers that have fallen in love with Overwatch as much as I have.  Maybe next year i’ll cosplay as Lucio and join the fight!
