Ciri is one of the most powerful and alluring characters in The Witcher universe, but a dedicated fan named Yarpenna decided to bring her into our world with a breathtaking cosplay.

The Witcher is filled with all kinds of interesting characters, from Geralt to Yennefer, Triss, and Dandelion. However, there’s no denying that Ciri, the deuteragonist of the series, is one of the best.

Ciri has many admirable traits. She is tough, bold, has a strong moral compass, and can literally travel through space and time. She also shares a special father-daughter bond with Geralt, which is one of the most memorable aspects of the story.

Ciri is the deuteragonist of The Witcher series, and of the most powerful characters.

The Witcher takes place in a fantasy world, but that doesn’t mean people can’t use a little magic of their own and bring their favorite characters to life. A cosplayer named Yarpenna did exactly that, and her followers loved it.

“Hello in the new year,” she said. “I’ve closed 2020 with a witcher photo, then I also open 2021 with the Witcher! It’s winter, so it’s a good time to post-winter photos, there you go. Winter Ciri!”

The cosplay looks fantastic from head to toe. The ashen hair color is spot on, as well as the shirt, pants, boots, belt, straps, and gloves. The attention to detail in the belt is particularly impressive.

Of course, let’s not forget about the sword, dagger, and knapsack. They’re a nice touch and help round off the piece quite nicely. If fans saw her walking around in the wild, they could be forgiven for thinking she opened a portal into our dimension and is the real deal.

Yarpenna also shared a photo of the outfit several months earlier. It shows her standing in a chilling winterscape standing in front of an icy tree surrounded by blankets of snow. It looks like a scene from the game.

“It’s getting colder outside,” she said. “Looks like a perfect opportunity to post a snowy Ciri picture!”

She’s not wrong, and her fans adored it. Between the two photos, fans left comments saying it made them want to jump back into The Witcher 3.

Yarpenna already has an impressive gallery of cosplays. It includes everything from Captain Marvel to Lady Sylvanas from World of Warcraft, and they’re all impressive.

However, this Ciri cosplay is one of her best. It’s always nice to see The Witcher fans bring their favorite characters to life, and she’s done an incredible job. We can’t wait to see what she’s got in store next!

Avatar: The Last Airbender fans love Toph for her tomboyish vibe despite being raised like a princess, but a brilliant cosplayer managed to capture her elegant side by creating a refined version of her usual outfit.

The heroes in Avatar: The Last Airbender all bring something unique to the table. However, Toph is particularly remarkable because she managed to become an earth-bending master despite being blind since birth.

Initially, she wanted to prove to her parents that blindness didn’t make her weak. But she became one of the most powerful characters in the show and a valuable Team Avatar member.

Toph Beifong turned her back on a sheltered childhood to become a powerful earth-bender.

Toph is a popular choice among cosplayers too. But while we’ve seen everything from her traditional get-up to an elegant dress she once wore, it’s hard to find one more unique than Emma J.I.Q Rubini’s Art Nouveau Toph.

“You see nothing once, and you’ve seen it a thousand times,” she said, referring to a quote. “Y’all remember when we used to have cons? I’m so happy I went to Katsucon this year since it ended up being the only one I went to.”

“Here’s the cosplay I made for it,” she added. “Art Nouveau Toph! I am incredibly proud of the work I put into it, and I’m happy I got to wear it to such a pretty con! One day maybe I’ll wear it again.”

Emma managed to capture all the crucial elements of Toph’s everyday outfit. It includes the green and beige garments, the hairstyle tucked under a headband with a flower, and of course, contact lenses to match her eyes.

However, she’s added some exotic details in line with a style known as Art Nouveau. It combines elegantly woven tapestries with encrusted jewels and other bits and pieces to add some class.

Cosplayers and their fans know how much time and effort it takes to re-create an outfit faithfully. However, it takes creativity, talent, and courage to add your flair. Emma nailed it, and the thousands of likes she’s getting are a testament to that.
