Yennefer is without a doubt one of the most popular characters in the Witcher series, and one fan has summoned her into our realm with an astounding cosplay.

In the world of the Witcher, Yennefer is a powerful sorceress who’s also Geralt’s “true love” (sorry, Triss fans), and a mother figure for Ciri.

Cosplayer Alyonka “saint_hysteria” Slyunkova’s take on Yen is definitely inspired from her look in the Witcher 3, and certainly reminds us of the game’s opening cinematic before you start in White Orchard.

Slyunkova didn’t have to do much to their hair for the cosplay, which ,when you add the costume in, is a spot on representation of Yen in her Nilfgaardian-appropriate attire we see early on in the game.

Those fur-lined gloves look great for keeping your digits warm during the chilly Temerian evenings, but the magical purple flames that’s being summoned in her palms probably does a good job of that, as well.

The outfit, scenery and added effects all come together to make one of the best Yennifer cosplays we’ve ever seen – but it only gets better, if you can believe it.

If you aren’t already itching to boot up the Witcher 3 for yet another playthrough after seeing this, just wait until you see Slyunkova’s co-star.

During the Witcher 3’s opening cinematic, Yennefer is riding a horse trying to escape the battlefield, so the cosplayer decided to bring along her own trusty steed for her photoshoot.

While we may have a while to wait on any possible news about another Witcher game, that definitely won’t stop fans from coming up with fantastic cosplays like this one.

Slyunkova doesn’t limit herself to cosplaying enchanting sorceresses such as Yen, but each one of her creations is just as well-produced, which definitely makes the rest of her work on Instagram worth a look.


League of Legends cosplayer blooms like a flower as Spirit Blossom Ahri

Spirit Blossom Ahri is one of the most vibrant champion and skin combinations in League of Legends, but rather than trying to imagine how awesome she’d look in the real world, a cosplayer named Faid Eyren made it happen.

League of Legends characters all have a unique look and vibe. However, it’s hard to name one more fascinating than Ahri, the Nine-Tailed Fox. She is a part of an animal-like race called Vastaya. They descended from enlightened mortals that harnessed power from the spirit realm.

Ahri has that power too. Her abilities revolve around reshaping magic into orbs of raw energy. She’s also technically a Nine-Tailed Fox, with nine tails flaring out from her backside.

Ahri, the Nine-Tailed Fox, has one of the best-looking character models in the game.

Ahri’s default skin looks fantastic. However, Spirit Blossom Ahri looks even better. It has a more floral and mystical appearance, complete with pink hair, bright blue tails, and a majestic white and pink kimono.

Faid Eyren is a brilliant cosplayer from Ukraine. In the past, she’s dressed up as everything from Demon Slayer’s Shinobu Kocho to Sword Art’s Asuna Yuuki. Now, she’s brought Spirit Blossom Ahri to life.

“Every spirit forgets itself eventually, but I’m always on their horizon,” she said. “Finally, I’m happy to show you the result of our collaboration with @cosplaysky! I fell in love with this amazing costume immediately! It’s not just super beautiful, but very convenient to wear. It fits perfectly!”

The costume, which was designed and tailor-made by cosplaysky, is stunning from head to toe. But there’s no denying that Faid Eyren wore it well and made it look like the real deal. 

Let’s not forget about ears from lulu_cosplayer and the photography edits from gaerwen_art, either, which rounded it off nicely.

It’s hard to pull off Spirit Blossom Ahri since it’s one of the most majestic-looking skins in the game. However, Faid Eyren nailed it, and the overwhelming support and praise from her fans prove it.
