The Best Overwatch Tracer Lena Oxton Cosplay Tutorial

Tracer Lena Oxton is a damaged hero in the Overwatch video game that specializes in close-range and single target battle. She’s a very mobile character and has the blink ability, allowing her to teleport and cover the map faster. She can be easily killed, though, so making smart use of the blink ability is important.

Dressing up as Tracer, this cosplay set will include her full outfit. The full sexy outfit would be a brown jacket-like top and tight yellow pants that have prints for the bottom. It also includes a black harness that carries the chronal accelerator that is strapped on the middle of the costume. To complete the outfit, you’ll also get the yellow eye protective glasses, white shoes, a short black wig, and the props arm armor for both arms. This cosplay set also comes with the yellow stretchy tight pants that include the Tracer prints on one of the legs and harness design.

About Tracer Lena Oxton Costume

 Tracer Lena Oxton is considered as one of the best damage heroes in Overwatch if used properly. She is best used in 1-on-1 situations and on sneak attacks using her blink ability. Engaging the enemy head-on is not the ideal strategy, considering her lack of regenerating shields and low base health.

Tracer’s ability, though, is not the only thing that is attracting people to this character. Her unique, sexy, and tough-looking appearance makes her a good choice to dress up as for photoshoots or costume parties. As you can see in the cosplay photos, you can choose to dress up exactly like Tracer. You can imagine yourself being in a battle, mimicking some of the actions for photoshoots. The setting can be anywhere since it is an action shot. Or you can add some creativity into it and turn the tough-looking outfit into a sexier look, for a steamier photoshoot.
