The world needs more cosplay heroes, and we're excited to find out who comes out on top in the first Overwatch Cosplay Battle! More than a competition, this cosplay clash of countries is a celebration of creativity, craftsmanship, and national pride. We'll see teams of top cosplayers from different European countries bring Overwatch heroes to life by creating amazing costumes based on your votes.
A total of six teams of three cosplayers from the United Kingdom, Germany, France, Spain, Italy, and Russia will showcase their skills by creating one costume each over the course of three months. You can help choose which cosplay your team creates by voting for your favorite project on social media and then follow their progress online.
Once the six costumes are completed, an official jury made up of Blizzard artists and cosplay professionals will select a Grand Prize winner based on accuracy, craftmanship, and originality, and you'll be able to cast your votes once again to choose the Community Favorite.
You can vote for your team's cosplay project from now until November 19. Head to cosplaybattle.playoverwatch.com to find out more about the competition, the teams, and how to cast your vote.
Let the Overwatch Cosplay Battle begin!
