How to Dress Like Soldier 76 from Overwatch
Maybe its the stress of a career as an assassin, but Soldier 76 has gone prematurely grey. In fact, his hair is pure white!
To get a similar look yourself, you can style your own hair and use white frosted hairspray to get the same coloration, or wear a gray wig.
Like most other Overwatch characters, Soldier 76 wears heavy tactical clothing, including black combat pants, a thick blue jacket, a red and white armor vest and a black shirt beneath this.
You can purchase these items in lots of different places from online retail websites to army surplus stores to sports stores. Use foam padding under the jacket for a more authentic look.
Mask & Accessories:
Soldier 76 wears numerous accessories. He wears a black gas mask with red goggles so that only the top of his head is showing, yellow and black battery-like equipment on the side of his arm, tall black combat boots and he carries an enormous blue, white and black gun. He also wears red gloves on his hands for a no-slip grip on his weapons.
You can use large batteries taped to your arm for Soldier 76’s equipment, or you can make your own using household supplies and craft products.
Last but not least, you’ll need Soldier 76’s gun. You can purchase a prop replica gun just like his online, or you can use craft products such as foam and plastic to make your own.
