Plenty of cosplayers are bringing characters from The Witcher to life after the hit Netflix series’ release, so toss a coin to your Ciri, o’ cosplay battle of plenty.

Following the Witcher’s resurgence off the back of the hit Netflix series, cosplayers are flocking to bring the game’s depiction of characters from Cintra into our realm. 

Geralt’s adopted daughter, Ciri, has a narrative which runs parallel to Geralt’s in that she is destined for greatness — a reason why plenty can relate to her character arc, both in the game and the Netflix portrayal.

Ciri’s Netflix plot gives fans a glimpse into just how powerful her in-game character truly is.

Given her popularity with fans of the series and CD Projekt Red’s hit game, cosplayers everywhere have come up with some fantastic creations of Geralt’s “child of surprise.” 

We’ve rounded up the best Ciri efforts, which could have been plucked straight from Cintra, itself. The question is, who gets your coin? 

Bliss Cosplay (bliss.cosplay)

Bliss is our first entry in Cintra’s cosplay battle. Complete with the trademark scar and silver hair, this effort certainly pays attention to detail to the game’s interpretation of her appearance. 

The look is complemented by a holstered sword and green eyes, which would leave many fans wondering whether she was plucked straight from Projekt Red’s design.

In a similar vein to Bliss, Captain Kaycee is sporting Ciri’s iconic silver hair and wounded face, to really pay homage to authenticity. 

Sword in-hand, Kaycee gives fans a full shot with this cosplay, which reveals attention to detail in every aspect of her outfit — heck, she looks like she’s ready to take on a Striga.

So I finally finished watching The Witcher last weekend and it was SO GOOD. ? definitely fun enough that I’ll go rewatch it again! I also really want to do a Yennefer cosplay since I still haven’t cosplayed her. Maybe her cool feathery outfit from the game? ?✨ . . Cosplay provided by @miccostumes ?

Armored Heart Cosplay (armoredheartcosplay)

Glancing into the distance, Armored Heart has hit the nail on the head with her take on Ciri. The cosplayer’s effort ticks all of the right boxes, though, as her entire outfit is complete with a battle-worn sword as though she’d just taken out a Kikimora. 

In fact, Armored Heart did just that (minus the sword)… Perhaps this could be enough to lock-in Witcher fans’ votes.

Well, this is what happens when security makes you put your sword back in the car. ? Whatever….that kikimore was a side quest anyway! * @geekstrong and I had such a great time at the Witcher fan experience a few weeks ago (where this vid was taken). He ways comes up with the funniest concepts! We were able to see the first episode that night but I'm SO excited to watch the rest!!! ♥️ Btw I also love this throwback pic too…def one of my favorite Ciri photos! * * Vid and photo by @geekstrong / @thegeekstrong * * #ciri #witcher #witcher3 #thewitcher #wildhunt #geralt #thewitchercosplay #ciricosplay #witchercosplay #witcher3wildhunt #cdprojektred #cosplayer #cosplay #videogame #cosplayersofinstagram #netflix #thewitchernetflix #witchernetflix

With each entry earning a place in the list by their own merit, choosing between the lineup is a near-impossible task. 

Perhaps Bliss’ attention to detail with the green eyes sways it, or maybe Armored Heart’s reenactment of her slaying a Kikimora makes her effort a fan-favorite.

So, dear readers: who earned your coin?

One skilled cosplayer has tried her hand at recreating Ibuki Mioda from Danganronpa, and has done an excellent job – capturing the character’s outfit in her costume perfectly.

Danganronpa is a game franchise created by Spike Chunsoft, having produced three main titles along with a spinoff in the form of a third-person shooter.

The premise of the first game Trigger Happy Havoc, is that there are 15 students trapped within a school, and the only way to break free is to murder other students and get away with it. For each crime scene, there is a discussion over who the students believe the murderer is.

The game has secured itself a loyal following.

The subsequent games follow a similar premise, and consist of a varied cast of characters who sport unique personalities and interesting character design.

Danganronpa has a substantial following, with many players becoming attached to the fantastic range of characters, and naturally many have chosen to cosplay their favorite people from the game thanks to their appealing aesthetics.

Cosplayer ayuu.exe decided to give Ibuki Mioda a try, an upbeat musician with a quirky personality featured in Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair and Danganronpa 3: The End of Hope’s Peak High School.

Ayuu.exe has managed to replicate Ibuki perfectly. Her intensely dark hair is long and pin-straight, with blue and pink pastel strands, along with a stunningly bold box fringe consisting of accompanying neon colors.

The horns atop her head replicate the use of hair, oversized black and white striped additions that compliment her quirky personality.

Her school uniform is minimalistic but a perfect recreation of the sailor style original, even keeping with the soft pink ribbon that hangs with a white clasp in the centre of her torso. On one hand she wears a scrunchie, and on the other, a pink and black fingerless glove that just reflects how fantastic the attention to detail was in this cosplay.

The recreation was popular among fans, and ayuu.exe’s posts have now reached over 6000 likes combined on Instagram.
