Welcome back to Hero Makeover, our video series where professional costume designers and makeup artists transform real-world heroes into their favorite characters.
Our hero for Episode 5 is a transgender woman from St. Louis named Alexa. Through cosplay, Alexa has found confidence and been able to comfortably appear in public as a woman. Watch the season finale of Hero Makeover in the player above to see Alexa’s cosplay transformation into D.Va from Overwatch.
Be sure to follow Hero Makeover on Facebook to check out the previous episodes, all of which are voiced by Jennifer Hale, the prolific voice actress who’s worked on a number of video game franchises, including Mass Effect, Metal Gear Solid, Baldur’s Gate, and Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic.
