Top 10 Witcher cosplays

1 of 11

In case this isn't known yet, I love the Witcher series. Books, games and even the quirky Polish TV show. Something else I love just as much - cosplayers who bring characters to life. 

Combining the two is probably one of the most logical things I could do so, here we go! These cosplays are not arranged in any particular order.

To see who's responsible for the above image, just click next! 

Yennefer of Vengerberg

Remember the lass from before? Well, here she is again as Yennefer; one of the most iconic characters of the Witcher universe and Geralt's main love interest. 

I mean, it's hard to argue with any reasoning he may have as to why. This cosplayer just adds (significantly I might add) to that appeal. 

Photo credit goes to the lovely kasshi69. You can find more of her work along with this photo right here in her DeviantArt account! 

Yennefer of Vengerberg. Again. Sorry. (Not really)

I can't not mention Eve Beauregard for her amazing Yennefer cosplay. Why? Well: a) because she looks like she could be the real life Yennefer, and b) she IS the real life Yennefer. 

Did you know that she worked for CD Projekt RED as the official Yennefer of Vengerberg? Well, get enlightened. 

Still, if you're on the hunt for some more gorgeous cosplays, her Facebook page deserves a visit.

Cirilla Fiona Elen Riannon (Ciri)

So we've seen Yennefer, one of the key components to Geralt's life. Next we have his adopted daughter of sorts.

It's not often we get many look-alikes, but the talented Kate Yeager breathes life into this character - who's probably one of the best (and most badass) women in gaming right now. There are more impressive shots of her as Ciri in this article right here.

Oh, and I think it's worth mentioning she's got her own page, to which I'll leave a link.

Jaskier (Polish) or Dandelion

Think of a womanizing Shakespeare, and you've got Dandelion from Witcher, Geralt's dear friend and companion.

This is likely the best Dandelion cosplay I've seen out there, and the credit goes to Virgile for this amazing piece of work. The costume was made by Azure Cosplay, another talented cosplayer who deserves props for her work as well!

Eredin: King of the Wild Hunt

I hated this bastard in game. Playing it on Death March meant I was staring at a black screen for at least 10 times before I started figuring out his patterns. But hey, that's what makes him a good end-game boss, right?

It's pretty difficult to argue when someone says Eredin is a pretty impressive figure. It's even harder to argue when someone says this cosplayer blew everything out of the water with his cosplay of the elven king. Props to Kevin for pulling this off. 

It's not just me who thinks this is one of the best things in cosplay out there. CD projekt RED thinks so as well, since Kevin won the grand prize of the cosplay contest hosted by the developer back in 2014. You'll find more photos of this amazing cosplay there, along with a few others as well, so I encourage you to check it out! 

P.S. I don't know if 'Kevin' has his own website or page out there. If anyone knows, do give us a shout will ya?

Leshen: Guardian of the Woods

You know what dissappointed me the most about the Witcher 3? The lack of opportunities to fight this particular enemy. I only had one dance with this guy on my playthrough and that was when I was woefully underleveled and he (or she or it? I dunno) was sporting a nice red skull icon. Got my ass kicked a lot, but it was worth it. 

But that's not what we're here for. This is to bring this masterpiece of a cosplay into more light. Done by the extremely talented Angelique Heikens, a.k.a idromy, this one definitely goes in the list of badass Witcher cosplays.

You can find her Facebook and DeviantArt right here. Do give 'em a visit!

Triss Merigold

Triss, Geralt's second love interest. 

I'm always going to be on team Yennefer, but if the model for Triss from Witcher 2 carried over, I'd have a much harder time making a decision.  

It's with regret that I have to report that I do not have any information on this lass, apart from the fact that her name is Kristina. Even that I'm not 100% sure on, so if anyone has any information on her or knows if she has a page, please don't hesitate to share. 

Only thing I know for sure is she makes for one awesome Triss.

I'll leave a link to the source of the photo right here.

Geralt of Rivia

It's a bit tough trying to find a good Geralt cosplay, but I think I found one of the best out there. Pretty sure if the Witcher 3 allowed Geralt's beard and hair to grow past the soft cap of sorts, that is what he'll end up looking like.

This masterpiece was done by Oleg Ram. I did find a reddit thread posted by him under the username ramol with a link to the original picture. 

For anyone wondering he's garbed in what I believe is the master-crafted bear set from the Witcher 3.

Geralt of Rivia. As a woman. (Hell yeah)

Gender bending cosplays are hit or miss. You either end up having a disaster, or you have the complete opposite - which is what Aelirenn managed to pull off spectacularly with this female Geralt cosplay. 

Again, I do not know if she has a page or site dedicated to her work but if anyone out there knows, I'm sure we all would love to see it. For now though, she has a reddit thread with a link to her full album, which includes a bonus shot of herself as Ciri as! It's pretty darn good.  

Now excuse me while I imagine the quirks of playing as a female Geralt in Witcher 3. 

...what? You're thinking it, too. 

Yeah, we're done. For now. 

If you have your own personal favorite Witcher cosplays please do us all a favor and direct us to them in the comments. 

Till then, here's um...well, this is what happens if you visit Crippled Kate's a bit too much. I think.

Not that I know personally.
