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.

World of Warcraft: Shadowlands is finally here, and cosplayers have been celebrating in the build-up, but one has truly outdone herself with an incredible recreation of Valeera Sanguinar.

World of Warcraft has one of the richest lores and stories in video game history. It’s filled with unique characters in all shapes and sizes and has told their stories for many years.

Now, their stories will continue once again in the latest expansion, World of Warcraft: Shadowlands, which is now live. It revolves around the actions of Sylvanas Windrunner, who has ripped open a portal to the Shadowlands.

It’s certainly a dark timeline, but players are thrilled to have been called back into action. However, it’s hard to find anyone more excited than maywedacosplay, a popular Russian cosplayer named Eva.

Valeera Sanguinar is a popular character in World of Warcraft: Shadowlands.

Eva celebrated the release of World of Warcraft: Shadowlands by doing what she does best, cosplaying her favorite characters. She’s cosplayed many World of Warcraft characters in the past, and the standard of quality has always been top-notch.

Now, she’s cosplayed Valeera Sanguinar, a beloved blood elf rogue who has never formally joined either Horde or Alliance.

“Glory to Sin’dorei!” she said, quoting one of the blood elves’ most famous lines. “What characters do you want to see in Shadowlands the most?

Eva’s cosplay is stunning from head to toe. The hair, make-up, and green eyes are on point. However, the real highlight has to be the sheer level of quality in the hood, chest-piece, shoulders, bracers, and leggings.

All the pieces have a perfect blend of crimson-red mixed with gold elven seams. They have infamous green Fel crystals slotted into them, which have a long history with blood elves.

It’s a phenomenal cosplay that deserves all the praise, and the high-quality photography makes it even better.

World of Warcraft: Shadowlands has already set the world on fire. But Eva’s cosplay will undoubtedly add to the excitement.
