Streamer and Cosplayer Tayvix has left Witcher fans enchanted after releasing her incredible Ciri costume to tie-in with the release of the show on Netflix.

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt first released back in 2015, sending fans of action role-playing games into raptures as they played the games based on the fantasy novels of the same name. The game follows Geralt of Rivia, a monster-hunter who is searching for his adopted daughter who went disappeared to escape from the Wild Hunt, a dark sinister force determined to use her vast magical powers for their own nefarious plans.

That girl is Ciri, a 'Source' born with vast powers, who trained as a Witcher under Geralt, unaware that her real dad is the Emperor, who fathered her under a secret identity after promising his first-born as part of a deal he made to have a curse removed.

With Ciri playing a vital part in the story of The Witcher, streamer Tayvix has debuted her incredible rendition of the emperor's daughter, complete with the silver hair, leather corset and white shirt that she wears in Wild Hunt. Even the fine details have been observed, with a leather cuff on her right arm, the metallic belt with gemstones embedded in each buckle, and the satchel she carries over her shoulder.

Tayvix's eyes even have the same vibrant colors as Ciri's does in-game, a mesmerizing shade of blue and green that looks like it's straight out of The Witcher 3, and brought to life in the real world.

The cosplayer debuted her amazing look at Holiday Matsuri 2019 in Miami, Florida, a special holiday-themed event that took place on December 13-15. "Ciri was so much fun to cosplay," she wrote in an Instagram post. "A character I've been wanting to do since Witcher 3 released. She definitely makes me feel like a bad*ss."

The Witcher 3 may have released almost five years ago, but the franchise has been around since 1992, with author Andrzej Sapkowski releasing his first novel in the series back titled 'Sword of Destiny.'

Since then, comic books, films and of course, video games have been adapted from the story, with Netflix releasing their highly-anticipated series on December 20 to rave reviews from audience members, although critics appear to be less enthused.

Tayvix's cosplay definitely wouldn't look out of place in the show though, pulling off an impeccable version of the 'Lady of Space and Time.'
