Who is Widowmaker?
Formerly known as Amélie Lacroix, Widowmaker is a Talon operative who excels in assassinating targets while avoiding detection. She stands in stark contrast to heroes like Mercy, who seeks to heal and save lives, or Tracer, whose time-bending abilities are used for good.
Widowmaker didn’t start her career immediately under Talon though. She was Gérard Lacroix‘s wife, a man who has been leading operations against the Talon terrorist organization. In her former life, she might have been considered a counterpart to Mei, who uses her scientific genius to battle ecological threats, not humans. Talon tried eliminating Gerard several times but always ended up failing. As a form of retaliation against him, they went after Amélie.
After undergoing an intensive program of neural reconditioning, she became Talon’s sleeper agent, akin to how D.Va serves as a frontline warrior for her own nation. Overwatch agents eventually found her, seemingly unharmed, and entirely unaware of her new programming. She was brought back into the fold, a decision that had devastating consequences. After two weeks, she killed her husband in his sleep, contrasting strongly with heroes like Mercy who would give everything to save a life.
She returned to Talon after her mission and became their deadliest asset. Physiological alteration turned her skin blue and made her incapable of feeling human emotions, making her even more enigmatic than the already mysterious sniper, Widowmaker. In this sense, she stands as a dark mirror to heroes like Tracer and D.Va, who fight for justice and freedom, embodying instead a chilling amorality.
How to look like Widowmaker?
Her blue skin is what makes her easily distinguishable out of all Overwatch heroes. Blue face and body paint will suffice, but you can use makeup to add more dimension to your skin, especially your face, to avoid looking too flat. Make sure to look for paints that are non-toxic and safe to apply on the skin.
Her eyes are bright yellow, so invest in good quality eye contacts in this color. Apply a winged eyeliner and a bit of black eyeshadow to achieve her smokey eye effect.
