Cosplayer Silvercos has revealed his pretty stunning take on The Witcher’s Geralt by incorporating one of the series’ other loved characters – Roach. 

The Witcher series started all the way back in 1993 thanks to Polish author Andrzej Sapkowski, though it’s popularity didn’t explode until game developers CD Projekt Red got their hands on it. 

Following the story of Sapkowski’s Witcher Geralt of Rivia, there have been three critically acclaimed video games – The Witcher 1, 2, and 3 – as well as a Netflix series that has introduced the franchise to a whole new audience. With the Witcher’s popularity threw the roof, it has become prime inspiration for cosplayers who want to show off their fandom as well.

Though we’ve seen a few attempts at other characters – including Tayvix as Ciri and Irine Meier as Triss Merigold – there hasn’t been a Geralt cosplay that has blown anyone away.

Yet, Silvercos appears to have stepped up to the plate with a stunning take on the popular character. Dressed in Geralt’s trademark chain and leather armor, the cosplayer has the hairstyle, color, and facial hair down to a tee – as well as The Witcher’s distinctive facial scarring.

What sets the cosplayer apart from many others, however, is the use of a horse which even looks like Geralt’s trusty steed Roach. Yet, it doesn’t appear as if the Horse has gotten himself into as much trouble as he does in-game.

However, the cosplayer’s take on the character doesn’t just end with him standing next to the horse. He even hopped a ride as well while carrying a few of his weapons.

With the Polish cosplayer looking like he’s taken Geralt and jumped right out of the video game and into the real world, he has received plenty of plaudits for his look.

Who will be next to try and one-up him, though, remains to be seen. However, it will have to be a pretty stellar job to surpass Silvercos.

A Demon Slayer cosplayer has metamorphosed into Shinobu Kochu and spread her wings in an elegant and well-detailed outfit that looks as real as it gets.

Shinobu Kocho is one of the standout characters in Demon Slayer. On the surface, she seems like a small, gentle, and soft-spoken angel with a calm and composed demeanor. But don’t let her size and appearance fool you. Shinobu Kocho is an incredibly powerful Demon Slayer. 

Beneath her skin is an immense and burning hatred towards demons, one which almost consumed her in the past. It started when she lost her beloved sister to the demons and sought revenge on them ever since.

It’s the reason Shinobu Kocho became a Demon Slayer in the first place.

Shinobu Kocho is a powerful, quick, and deadly swordsman. However, she’s also a medical expert and a master in pharmacology. To make matters worse for her opponents, she coats her weapon with poison and can perform ‘Insect Breathing.’

It’s easy to see why she’s a fan-favorite among Demon Slayer cosplayers. But although there are many amazing Shinobu Kocho cosplays, a Russian cosplayer named dabllmi has taken it to a whole new level.

Очень не запланированный фотосет вылился в эту потрясающую фотографию. 🦋 В конце июля я писала, что август принесёт мне много радости и новых знакомств. Вот знакомство с @bemycosplaymuse стало как раз этим событием. На самом деле я ещё долго буду вспоминать этот август и ставить его в пример, той жизни, которую я хочу. Работать на любимой работе, заниматься тем, что нравится, общаться с людьми, которым действительно есть дело до тебя. Вот что потрясающе.

There’s an incredible amount of detail in her cosplay. It permeates everything from her kimono, hair, and sandals to the sword itself. The shades and patterns are all on-point, and it really looks like Shinobu Kocho herself has come to life.

Combined with high-quality photography that includes a moon and leaves in the background and pink butterflies in the foreground, this cosplay is about as flawless as they come.

If you want to get a closer look at the outfit, you can swipe over to a second picture. The perfection of her kimono shine through even more. All in all, it was an unbelievable cosplay and one that many will mesmerize many Demon Slayer fans. 

If you’re like us and still desperately waiting for Demon Slayer Season 2, it seems like it’s still a while away. But in the meantime, there’s no harm in cosplaying your favorite characters and bringing them to life.
