Wattson joined the Apex Legends crew in Season 2, but even though she wasn't part of the original lineup, she's still one of the most intriguing characters in the game. She has tons of engineering knowledge from her father, but he passed away suddenly. Ever since, she's been fighting hard with the other Legends!
This cosplayer used just a few garments to complete this Wattson cosplay. The blue hoodie and yellow jacket are simple but recognizable, and they look comfortable too! This costume is super easy to recreate at home, especially if you already have blonde hair and bangs.
