About the competition

In the Overwatch Cosplay Battle, 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.

Help choose which cosplay your team creates by voting for your favorite project! You can learn more about the teams and follow their progress right here.

An official jury made up of Blizzard artists and cosplay professionals will select a Grand Prize winner from the six completed costumes, and you’ll be able to cast your votes once again to choose the Community Favorite.
