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.
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.

Sylwia @foto_basnie just sent me few photos and i could not resist to put it on IG XD Due the virus pandemia, i think we are all going to miss a lot of new photosesions. Remember to support your photographers in these hard days. #geraltofrivia #geralt #witcher #thewitcher #wiedzmin #wiedźmin #cdpred #cdprojektred #cosplay #geraltcosplay #witchercosplay #play #thewitchercosplay #witchernetflix #netflix #malecosplay #cosplyer #hitse #horseriding #horsecosplay #wildhunt #pyrkon #cosplaypolska
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.
