‘Overwatch’ cosplayer creates a stunning Mei cosplay

Overwatch Cosplay Mei

An Overwatch cosplayer has surpassed the game’s extensive artistic community with her amazing Mei outfit.

Mei is one of Overwatch’s most controversial DPS heroes. The character’s new Legendary skin dubbed the MM-Mei is drawing controversy.

The recently unveiled skin sees Mei sporting the outfit of an MMA fighter, complete with gloves with Frost Boxing written on it, and a championship belt. 

Overwatch fans, however, feel her cornrow and ponytail combo, along with her skin is done in poor taste, and some fans are even comparing her design and hairstyle to MMA fighter Weili Zhang, according to GameRant.

It is worth mentioning here that the adorable Chinese scientist is anything but cute when you bump into her in-game. 

Going back to her roots, though, one Overwatch cosplayer has come up with an absolutely amazing basic Mei cosplay that will leave you speechless.
