“With every death comes honor. With honor, redemption.”

CalliCos looks ready to redeem herself and then some with this genderbend version of the venerable Overwatch defense hero, Hanzo Shimada — right down to the matching hairstyle and intricate tattoo. And that Storm Bow, though!

Do I even exist if I don't post a Hanzo picture twice a day. 🤔 I love this location. It looks like the Hollywood map! . I want to start another photoseries hmmmm. 😋😋 It will be about Hanzo and the Hollywood map maybe? If only I had a genderbend McCree to take pictures with hehe. But! We all know Pharmercy is where its at. (>-<)7 .

. 《8/8》🌸 . "What have you become?" . "I have accepted what I am and I have forgiven you. Now you must forgive yourself. The world is changing again, Hanzo, and it is time to pick a side." . Genji left. Hanzo stumbled blindly towards the faintiest after image of a green ponytail, and fell on her knees, stripped of all words. . She looked to the East and saw the small orange glow of a sunrise. She considered the height of her grace, and the depth of her fall. Shivering, she considered the whispers she had heards about a secret base in the snow covered hills of Gibraltar. She considered salvation. She considered Overwatch. .

. 《7/8》🌸 . On the tenth anniversary of Genji's death Hanzo broke into the Shimada compound. She knelt on the polished floor of the grand hall and lit incense, poured sake and waited, watching the sweet and slow spiralling smoke of the offering rise to the ceiling. Minutes passed, and still the presence she felt behind her did not move. . "You are not the first assasin sent to kill me," she said. "And you will not be the last." . The prescence shifted, "You come here every year on same day, risking so much to honor someone you murdered." . Hanzo's arrows flew before a breath could be drawn, but the intruder moved swifter. "You know nothing of what happenned." . The assasin stepped into the moonlight and Hanzo stood transfixed as the stranger unlatched their face mask, revealing cold red eyes, the scarred expanse of a face, revealing pink lips and hair brighter than summer grass dewy with morning rain. . . . 🍃Pretty picture by @lostdumplings. 🌿Bow printed by @taotaong . . #cosplayer #blizzard #overwatch #Hanzo #cos #cosplaymodel #artofvisuals #cosplayway #potd #ponytail #overwatchart #cosplayersofinstagram #moodygrams #cosplaygirls #genderbend #starsofcosplaygirl #hanzoshimada #hanzocosplay #garters #thighhighs #zr #instagood #overwatchcosplay #japanesegirl #props #bow #tattoo #sleeve #justgoshoot #dragons

. 《5/8》🌸 . "Shameful." "Arrogant." Genji bit back. "Idle and wasting away your time." Hanzo growled, her late father's black silk Hakama draped across her shoulders. The scroll of the great Dragons hung heavily above her seat in the Shimada grand hall, the blue curve of the storm bow in front of her, the clan gathered around. Genji alone stood in the far end. . "I am done here." Genji coldly turned and walked away, once again. Her bright green hair whipping in the wind, fading into the pink blossoming sakura trees. Hanzo felt leaden in her heart as she watched, as the clan watched her, as her uncle placed one cold hand on her shoulder saying, "enough." Saying, honor. Saying, example. . Hanzo silently stood. She picked up her bow. She notched a single arrow. . .

. 《4/8》🌸 . "In their youth Genji clung to her the way younger sibling do; her tiny, delicate hand could only close around two of Hanzo's bow-string roughed fingers, or the seam of a black silk yukata. She padded around with sandaled feet on sleek wood, and could always be found trailing after the small and straight back of her sister." . "Sometimes, when Hanzo sat meditating under the plum tree in the second biggest garden, Genji would reach up with one small hand and tug at a lock of her dark hair, reveling in the smoothness and Hanzo's warm amused huff. Those days were almost painful in their joy and simplicity, as the paths of the two sisters marched forward to its inevitable end." .

. 《3/8》🌸 . "Hanamura is filled with Cherry blossoms this time of the year, their delicate petals a soft white-pink, coating the stone grounds of the Shimada compound, swirling beneath heels, catching in Hanzo's raven hair, coating the dark cherry of her father's coffin as it is lowered, ever-so-slowly, into the cold ancestral grounds." . . "Hanzo shook the petals from the folds of her suit. Besides her Genji sat with eyes downcast, bright green hair standing in attention admist the ocean of black, at a loss for words for once. Hanzo slowly glanced across the rows of bowed heads before her, face as blank as a statue, and thought the cherry blossoms were thick enough to choke on." . "This is how you lead an empire: quietly, with grief." . . .

. 《2/8》🌸 . "For a long time, Hanzo had been partaking in the discussions of the clan elders, practising fighting with Genji, practising the service of meditation. She already knew how to fell men with a few words, and failing that, a single arrow. Her father felt joy in his heart when he saw her walking through the Shimada complex, strong, steadfast, striding on slender legs and being greeted with perfect respect." . "The Shimada family tells of an ancient legend. On the sixteenth year Hanzo was given a great honor and a greater burden, the South Wind's spirit, bound irrevocably to the mortal plane through the thread of her soul. For eight days she sat perfectly in seiza as the Dragon was chiseled onto her bow arm, done painstakingly through hand carved needles, as is the traditional way. 入れ墨. Black as pitch Nara ink bleed into her pale skin, becoming a blue-green under the surface, the dragon form curling through clouds, through the streaks of lightning, through the pain she bore proudly and silently." .

. 《1/8》 🌸 "In the shade of the house, in the sunshine of the dappled surface of the ponds, in the shade of the pine trees lining the training grounds is where Hanzo grew up, the daughter of the Shimada, the storm dragon, together with her young sister Genji. . The sun tanned her light shoulders by the banks of Hanamura river when bathing. In the bamboo grove, shade poured into her dark eyes, when she let an arrow fly forward from her hands, when her mother sang, when sacred offerings were made, when her father, the leader, taught her." .

🌸Genji & Hanzo Shimada.🌸 🐻 Overwatch. P. @vitalz_coztography Costumes/props made by us . 😌So stoked to have done a duo cosplay with the gorgeous @luminalisa. She is absolutely kind and so pretty. 😍 The speed at which we made this happen just blew my mind! I met her at MTL comiccon and 3 weeks later we were Shimada sisters together hehehe . There is something so satisfying about doing group cosplays…Probably the fact that everyone can be their true nerdy self–and we love each other for it!🤗 . . . . . . #cosplayer #blizzard #overwatch #Hanzo #cos #cosplaymodel #genji #overwatchcosplay #ponytail #overwatchart #cosplayersofinstagram #moodygrams #cosplaygirls #femgenji #genderbend #starsofcosplaygirl #genjicosplay #hanzocosplay #garters #ow #zr #instagood #genjishimada #japanesegirls #props #mood #tattoo #sleeve #sisters #aesthetic

"You do not want me for your enemy." . . . 🍃Picture by the iconic @lostdumplings. 🌿Bow printed by super senpai @taotaong . . Should change myself from a cosplay blog to a Hanzo blog at this rate QQ. Also I confess I have started playing OW less in favour of Guild Wars. It brings back good old memories of skyrim for me. Plus the mmorpg open world means you can play with friends. There is only so many hours a day you can spend on gaming, regrettably. 🤔 I am sure I will be back on overwatch soon enough. . . . . . #cosplayer #blizzard #overwatch #Hanzo #cos #cosplaymodel #lostdumplings #cosplayway #recosugram #ponytail #overwatchart #cosplayersofinstagram #moodygrams #cosplaygirls #genderbend #starsofcosplaygirl #hanzoshimada #hanzocosplay #garters #ow #zr #instagood #overwatchcosplay #japanesegirl #props #yukata #tattoo #sleeve #justgoshoot #aesthetic
