Cosplayer Dorottya Gajdos left The Witcher 3 fans in awe after sharing her incredible recreation of one of Triss Merigold’s signature outfits.

Triss Merigold is a sorceress in The Witcher series who specializes in healing abilities and is known for her longtime relationship with Geralt of Rivia.

While the popular franchise has no shortage of strong female leads such as Yennefer and Ciri, cosplayer Dorottya Gajdos reminded everyone just why Triss is also one of the fan-favorite characters with a magical take on the Temerian Mage.

The sorceress plays a significant role in the quest to find Ciri during The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt’s main storyline and one quest, in particular, requires Geralt to attend a Masquerade alongside Triss, who dresses up in a stunning gown for the occasion.

The Witcher 3 cosplayer chose to replicate Triss’ more elegant look from the ball, bringing her to life with an incredible outfit inspired by the game.

Dorottya shared her efforts with her fans on Instagram, where she had mirrored Triss’ hairstyle with her signature red locks and donned a matching ball gown.

The cosplayer made sure to include some of the smaller details to complete the look such as the sorceress’ fingerless gloves and sapphire amulet that can be seen in the third game of the series.

Triss is one of the main interests of Geralt, but he’s also famously close to Yennefer, another favorite of cosplayers.

This is not the first time that Dorottya has cosplayed one of the leading ladies from the popular series, as she has previously shared her take on Yennefer of Vengerberg which was also a hit with fans of the Witcher.

With the recent success of the Witcher’s live-action series on Netflix and a new game expected following the release of Cyberpunk 2077, amazing cosplays such as Dorottya’s take on Triss will surely add even more hype to fans anticipating the future of the popular franchise.

Demon Slayer cosplayer transforms into beautiful butterfly Shinobu Kocho

Shinobu Kocho might look innocent from afar, but if you’re a demon and you get too close, you’ll see the deadly side of the butterfly. She’s a popular Demon Slayer character to cosplay, but ‘aka_purin’ has truly put together one of the most beautiful designs yet.

Shinobu Kocho is a fan-favorite in Demon Slayer, and it’s easy to see why. Not only does the Demon Corps member possess incredible powers to heal friends and harm demons, but she is one of the most beautiful characters in the show.

Her personality is a difficult one to channel though. While she’s seemingly innocent on the outside, deep inside of her, there’s a rebellious rage to get revenge.

It’s one thing to make a cosplay, put it on, and take a picture. It’s another thing to really channel what a character is all about, and that’s what sets ‘aka_purin’ apart from the other Shinobu cosplayers.

Sharing the intricate design on her Twitter, the Polish cosplayer spared no expense and left no stone unturned in her flawless design. Her hair and makeup is perfect, even getting the butterflies pinned.

She also created her special katana, which is based on an insect’s “stinger” more than a blade itself. The tattered, battle-worn hilt and blade is a wonderful addition to the cosplay that really ties it all together.

That’s the special thing about purin’s cosplay too. Every element just ties everything together. While even just one of these things would be pretty special in a cosplay, being able to jam it all in one photo is the most beautiful thing of all.

The Shinobu design might be her latest, but she’s unsure on what her next project will be. “I feel like I’m having an art block lately. I just have so many ideas and costumes to shoot but I just can’t put myself up for it,” she admitted on her Instagram.

No matter what it is though, we bet Purin will knock our socks off.
