Talented cosplayer ‘supertaunt’ has stunned Witcher fans via Instagram with her recreation of red-headed sorceress Triss, in a softer meadow shot.

The Witcher fanbase swelled in size in 2019 when the already immensely popular books series and games were adapted into a live action TV series starring Henry Cavill.

On December 31, 2019, Parrot Analytics even announced that it was the most in-demand TV show in the world at the time, dethroning Disney’s ‘the Mandalorian.’

It’s then no surprise that many new fans, like supertaunt, have put their cosplay skills to the test and recreated some of the gorgeously complex outfits used in both the series, as well as the game.

The Witcher was adapted for the big screen in December 2019 by Netflix.

Supertaunt’s recreation of Triss is amazing, her signature red hair brightening the shot and tying into the warmer environment. Commenters loved it, sending their praise the cosplayer’s way and calling it “absolutely incredible, outstanding work.”

Despite the complexity of the Witcher’s costumes, the cosplayer has done a great job at matching the intricacy of the costume design – right down to the etchings on the leather waistcoat, and the lattice on the turquoise sleeves.

The location seems the perfect place to bring Triss’ vibrant aesthetic to life, the yellow meadow flowers perfectly complementing the outfit’s color palette. It captures the fantasy feel of the Witcher series while giving it a lighter look.

Supertaunt recreates characters from a variety of different areas including films like Thor and Suicide Squad, as well as various different anime.

But she has also delved into the world of the Witcher previously, having created an incredible likeness of Ciri in front of a mountain backdrop.

Ever seen a League of Legends cosplay so good that Riot can’t help but share it with the world? Well, now you have, with Sweet Angel’s take on Akali taking League players by storm.

Akali is one of League of Legends’ most popular characters to cosplay. Whether it be her default skin, or the mega-popular K/DA variant, people love to show off as the Ionian assassin.

However, few manage to grab the eyes of Riot as much as Sweet Angel. The talented Italian cosplayer decided to take on Akali as her most recent project, and while the costume looks simple, it was anything but.

Akali is one of the most popular League champions to cosplay, but few catch the eyes of Riot.

“I thought it was a simple costume, but it required a lot more attention and time than I thought,” she told fans on her website.

It took Sweet Angel about 100 hours all up to create the Akali cosplay ⁠— and you can see every bit of hard work and time that went into it. From the handmade wig, to the dress, and even Akali’s smoke bombs, Sweet Angel didn’t miss a beat.

Everything that you see was basically handmade. Sweet Angel sewed all of the fabrics together, stitched everything up, and made it tailored not only to herself, but true to life to Akali’s design.

She even designed Akali’s signature Kana, using EVA foam so she can carry it around without too much hassle.

She added every detail to the weapon like she did the costume too, from the leather handle all the way down to the marks and blemishes on the battle-worn blade.

The cosplay is so good that even the official League of Legends account couldn’t help but react. Sweet Angel got a retweet on the cosplay from the near five million follower account, and they don’t hand those out lightly.

As for her next cosplay, Sweet Angel hasn’t revealed her plans just yet. However, she’s got a few more shoots on the way, and if they’re anything like this Akali cosplay, they’ll be worth a gander.
