Academy D.Va from Overwatch

Announced in 2019, the Academy skin for D.Va (voiced by Carlet Chung in the English version) was a new spin on the character’s look. Prior to that most of D.Va’s looks were spins on her usual pilot’s jumpsuit.

The skin puts her into a college uniform complete with headphones, blazer, plaid skirt, blue socks, and white sneakers with pink laces. Getting the exact jacket is a little tricky, though, since there are so many small details. Soft touch fabric paint lets you add in the details without creating stiff areas on your coat. Start with a white base to make the colors pop, then edge the lapels and hem in yellow while add pocket lines with pink. Black pig tails, pink headphones, a white undershirt and pink tie finish off the look.

The Huntress from Dead by Daylight

Anna grew up in the Russian wilderness alone after the death of her mother, killing any prey and trespassers that entered her forest with a combination of throwing hatchets and her trusty broad axe. As the Huntress in Dead of Daylight, she uses her trusted weapons to hunt and sacrifice survivors to the Entity. The Huntress’ costume includes a lot of different colors and textures. By layering a blue printed scarf over an orange skirt, you can recreate the tattered sarafan skirt she wears. You can also purchase a mask made to emulate the Huntress’, or you can use a plain bunny mask and some acrylic paint to achieve the same look.
