Mei's default skin is the Eskimo outfit but Blizzard has released a Chinese New Year outfit for her. The new skin though has a glitch that made the female hero thinner. She actually looks good but other players are not happy with it. Here is a photo comparison of Mei in the two skins.
To the casual observer, there seems to be a little difference considering that the Eskimo skin is a bulky suit. Some of the critics though point out that Mei's waist in the New Year skin seems smaller than normal.
