Kubo and the Two Strings Cosplay Watch by Ready2Create Kubo and the Two Strings Cosplay Watch by Ready2Create
I owe it all to my favorite movie, "Kubo and the Two Strings".  :)

If it weren't for this movie, it would've never crossed my mind to look into a character named "Hanzo".

Here, we've got all three members of Kubo's family, cosplaying as characters from Overwatch.

Commentary: I chose Sariatu to cosplay as Pharah because they share the same kind of bangs.  They're also serious about their work.
Kubo is Zenyatta because, with help from his shamisen magic and his origami birds, he too can hover like the omnic monk. 
And as for the Mighty Hanzo, well, you can guess he plays a certain older Shimada brother for their shared name and shared talent with archery.

Enjoy!

Pharah is one of the strongest willed women in the Overwatch cast, and no one would mess with her lest they get the "rain from above".  Zenyatta is my favorite of the fighters because of his inspirations from Buddhism and Xiaolin monks and his role in the story as Genji's teacher and a mediator for Omnic/Human relations; being a product of two worlds, and still navigating nebulous and dangerous relations between them, Zenyatta is a great costume for Kubo.
And of course, if you don't make Hanzo into the Japanese archer inspired by the same historical figure, it's a crime against cultural inspiration I say.

Zenyatta is one of my favorite Overwatch characters as well. ^^
That's a great way to put it ("being a product of two worlds"),
given he's the son of a mortal samurai and an immortal woman

Glad I could fashion our favorite Beetle Clan samurai into the elder Shimada brother :D

Kubo looks good as a monk and it was smart to have Sariatu cosplay Pharah since they both have a distinctive feature near their eye. Maybe Hanzo cosplaying Hanzo Shimada was too good, because when I looked at him I thought, "Why is Hanzo Shimada taking Hanzo's place?" :XD:

Thank you! 

Sometimes, when I glance my drawing from the corner of my eye, Hanzo Mikami resembles too much like Hanzo Shimada!
(One distinctive feature that sets them apart are the eyebrows)

And thank you so much for your comment, it really made my day :)

My day's been good, but the three lootboxes I got today were junk. I'm still trying to get one last legendary.

By the way, something I found that brings back memories of "Big Hero 6":

All the same, I'm glad we could all join in this Overwatch Event :thanks:

By the way, given that he's technically a father,
I had the idea of the Raiden (as a mortal)
reuniting with all 3 of his daughters as mortal little girls

I hope you're recent Overwatching got you the skin you wanted

I love the way all three of them look, so it's near impossible to choose, however, if I did have to play favorites, I'd have to say Hanzo as well... Hanzo! :D
