It’s tough for me to ever find cosplay that is legitimately better than the original source that inspires it. No matter how amazing and impeccable some Devil May Cry 5 cosplay may be, it always looks like a Nero imitation. Then there is this amazing The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt cosplay of fan-favorite Ciri, which is easily better than CD Projekt Red’s original character model.
Late last year, cosplayer Victoria Hofferson was getting into The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt and decided to post her (then) work in progress. Taking on Cirilla Fiona Elen Riannon (better known as Ciri) from the monster hunting RPG series, the likeness is flat-out impressive:
While this is clearly from a few months ago, the cosplay got a recent surge of attention from the dedicated The Witcher subreddit after Hofferson posted the image. And there have definitely been updates in her style, including a more festive version of Ciri (to celebrate the New Year):
Even better, this isn’t the first time Hofferson has taken on The Witcher 3 — in fact, she’s done takes of the other fan-favorite female characters from the CD Projekt Red game. While she definitely looks less like Triss Merigold than Ciri, I’m still accepting arguments that this is a better version than the game’s character model:
Now all we need to do is get Hofferson around cosplayer Taryn who does a spot on Geralt of Rivia for a photoshoot.
Obviously, amazing cosplay isn’t secluded to just The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. Some may remember earlier this week when we saw Shirogane-sama craft an amazing version of NieR: Automata‘s 2B. Meanwhile, I’m still banging the drum for the excellent Makoto and Futaba cosplays we saw earlier this year from DualShockers favorite title, Persona 5.
The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is available for PC, PS4, and Xbox One, and is one of our favorite games of all time. If you haven’t picked up the title yet, you can do that on Amazon. Meanwhile, go make sure to follow and check out Victoria Hofferson’s other cosplay via her official Instagram or her Twitter account.
