Yennefer is one of the most commonly cosplayed characters from the Witcher series, but popular artist Enji Night has made possibly the most accurate recreation yet.

With the exception of Geralt himself, there is perhaps no more iconic character than his better half, Yennefer of Vengerberg.

Fans of the Witcher 3 will know of the choice they must make – to side with Yennefer or Triss Merigold, and although the debate rages on between Team Triss and Team Yennefer,  the latter remains the more popular choice.

Behind Ciri, Yen is a favorite of Witcher cosplays.

As one of the most powerful mages in the entire Witcher universe, Yennefer got her beauty through a magical process, having been naturally born disfigured.

Her outfit is always black, without exception, matching her dark hair. Enji Night has, of course, got these details spot on, but it’s the smaller details that really make this cosplay exceptional.

Most notably, the choker worn by Yennefer looks like an exact replica here, and the detail on the eye shadowing and even eyebrow shaping is a perfect match.

Of course, it doesn’t hurt that Enji Night has a similar facial structure to the game version of Yennefer, but the makeup makes the two almost indistinguishable. All that’s missing here is Yennefer’s leather jacket with the fur collar, but this would be an easy addition to complete the look.

“I tried to play with makeup as much as I can to make myself look like Yen,” Night said, “even though it took me a while, I really enjoyed playing around with contouring and stuff, so I definitely will try more characters in the future.”

The Hungarian cosplayer explains that it’s her very first attempt at the character, and plans on doing more from the Wither series – provided she has the right wig to hand.

My first attempt on Yennefer from Witcher 3 . . I tried to play with makeup as much as I can to make myself look like Yen, however I feel like I ended up looking like a 40 year old porn star instead ?? Okay, I'm just joking. I rarely cosplay mature, femme fatale characters, so maybe that's why I feel this way lol? However even tho it took me a while, I really enjoyed playing around with contouring and stuff, so I definitely will try more characters in the future. Most likely my next victim gonna be Triss and after I will complete the collection with Ciri ? . . ?What other characters do you think should I do? Let me know in the comments. If I have the right wig, I will definitely give them a try ?

On Instagram, she said Triss would likely be up next, with Ciri to follow. “Most likely my next victim [is] gonna be Triss and after I will complete the collection with Ciri.”

For fans of the Witcher game, there’s also good news from the developers, CD Projekt RED, who have confirmed they’re working on something new for the series, after they release Cyberpunk 2077.

In another post on Instagram, the cosplayer faithfully re-created the moment from the episode where Ty Lee asks a beachgoer to stand in front of the sun to create shade for her to rest in. 

This isn’t the first time the artist has dressed up as the Avatar heroine. In September, she collaborated with cosplayer ‘minakess’ who portrays Princess Azula. Daniella wore Ty Lee’s regular pink outfit while sitting next to the series’ villain.

Despite ending in 2008, the Last Airbender has seen a major revival in popularity after Netflix added it to its platform in April. The Nickelodeon animation celebrated its 15th anniversary in 2020.

Those interested in the franchise can watch every single episode on the streaming service right now. The series sequel, The Legend of Korra, is also available, and takes place 100 years after the story of Avatar Aang.
