Witcher 3 cosplayer expertly recreates Ciri’s Sauna outfit

As Witcher cosplays go, Ciri is probably the most popular character, even more so than Geralt or Yennefer, but that just means cosplayers have to get more creative with their designs.

Although typically seen as a fierce fighter and mage, cosplayer Ria Stark decided to do a more intimate outfit for Ciri, foregoing the usual armor and weapons.

Witcher 3 players may recall the one time in the game when Ciri changes outfits, after she is rescued in a small hamlet in Skellige, and the villagers treat her to their natural sauna.

It’s the only time when Ciri is truly vulnerable, and of course, the Wild Hunt are there to attack. Stark, known professionally as Stoma Cosplay, chose this as the outfit to don for her recreation.

Although you could argue that this is a simple version of Ciri to put together, the attention to detail still has to be spot on. It also helps that Ria already bears an uncanny resemblance to Ciri naturally.

But, the hair is near identical, and the distinctive scar on her cheek completes the look. Dark eye shadow is also a signature of Ciri, who seemingly always has the time to apply it in-game.

The hair isn’t actually the cosplayer’s own though, but rather wig created by professional Wig designers WigIsFashion, who focus on wigs for cosplays especially.

This more understated cosplay of Ciri isn’t as extravagant as some of the more complex ones we’ve covered, but it captures her face perhaps better than any.

A close up also reveals the detail achieved with her cat-green eyes, although it’s unclear if these are contacts or effects added to the images after.

Ria Stark has also tried her hand at understated looks for Triss and Yennefer, though we think her Ciri is definitely the best so far. You can check out more of her work on Instagram and Facebook.

Attack on Titan’s Eren Yeager is a popular choice among cosplayers, but a recent effort re-created the character perfectly, and the pictures have gone viral. 

Attack on Titan is one of the darkest and strangest mainstream animes in recent times. However, that hasn’t stopped it from becoming an incredibly popular smash-hit. If anything, it’s probably the reason why.

Nobody ever thought they’d be into a story about human soldiers locked into a battle with over-sized human-looking monsters called Titans who eat people.

Yet, here we all are, and we’re hooked. 

Attack on Titan has many interesting characters, but it revolves around Eren Yeager, the main protagonist. He started as an impulsive and hardheaded peasant with a burning despite to help eliminate Titans.

But he quickly grew into a capable member of the Scout Regiment and even stumbled upon a special power of his own. For that reason, he’s become a fan-favorite among fans and cosplayers alike.

A cosplayer named Noah Lance decided to step into Eren Yeager’s boots. They’re massive ones to fill, but he did such a great job, the photos have gone viral. The pictures have already generated almost 10,000 likes on Instagram.

“I hate people when they’re not polite,” he said, in reference to one of Eren Yeager’s quotes from the show. “If you end up on my table, then it serves you right.”

Noah’s outfit looks like the real deal. It has everything from the khaki-colored shirt, brown belt, brown straps to a replica necklace. The dual swords are the best feature, though, and they round it off nicely.

There’s also a second shot that provides a more zoomed-out view of the boots, straps, and pants. Noah’s definitely put in a lot of attention to detail, and it shows.

“And I’m hoping that you will see yourself like I see you,” he said.

Attack on Titan can be dark and grueling at times, but it still provides endless opportunities for fans and cosplayers to shine. Noah’s Eren Yeager cosplay is a testament to that.

The fourth and final series kicks off on December 7.

It marks the beginning of the end for the show, but there’s no doubt Attack on Titan fans will be in for a roller-coaster ride along the way.
