Halloween is coming and Overwatch released some really cool costumes. Which one is you favourite? One of my favourite is definite Mei’s JIANGSHI costumes because there are lots of Chinese elements in this costume.
 


First thing first, what is Jiangshi? Will, Jiangshi is some kinds of Chinese version zombies, they have long and hard nails to hurt human, sharp teeth to vampire and their knees cannot band, so they have to jump instead of walk. And that’s why there is a new hopping emote for Mei.


 
The most common Jiangshi images come from old Hongkong jiangshi movies which the jiangshi are always wear official uniforms of the Qing dynasty. That is also what Mei wears.

Judging by the image in front of her cloth, she wears a civil official uniform instead of military official uniform because it’s a crane on the uniform and military officials are leopards or lions. And different levels of officials have different birds in front of their clothes so seems Mei is the highest level of Qing officials.

One interest thing is the yellow paper sticks in front of her head is some kind of spell to let her obedient. And Snowball, the little machine, wears like a Taoist priest who can fight with Jiangshi. So, is that means in Mei’s Halloween costume, Snowball is actually who mastered Mei?


 
And there are many other details. The copper bell and the plate with the eight trigrams are magic items used to fight with Jiangshi, but she carried them herself. (like a vampire carried a Cross) And there are two strange paints on Snowball’s body, they are also two of the eight trigrams, one represents water and another represents fire.




 

Over all from all the datils we can see Blizzard really put a lot in this, hope they can bring us more fantastic costumes in the future. Which costumes is your favourite, leave a comment blow and tell me why.
Thank
You!
