Lady Dimitrescu is never far from our fantasies, whether it’s in our minds or within the fantasy world of Skyrim.

Resident Evil Village‘s Ms “Tall Lady” Dimitrescu became a mascot for Capcom’s latest instalment when she gracefully appeared on our screens last year. Since then, she’s become a hot topic and one of the most talked about characters of the franchise.

Naturally, with someone as popular as Lady Dimitrescu, modders will always find a way to slip the seductive vampiress into games wherever they can. One of the more recent modder endeavours transformed Miss D into Thomas the Tank Engine and also Mr X from Resident Evil 2.

This time, however, Countess Alcina Dimitrescu receives the Skyrim treatment which suits her much more than being turned into Thomas the bloody Tank Engine, let’s be real here.

Lady Dimitrescu Steps out of One Fantasy and into Another

Over on Nexus Mods, skilled creator Jinxxed0 stitched together a version of the Dimitrescu outfit that they made from scratch using 3D assets and blender.

As you can see from the images, Jinxxed included Alcina’s trademark white dress, those dazzling pearl earrings with matching necklace, the splash of black from the flower brooch, long raven black gloves, that oversized hat and, of course, finished off with a really strong set of high-heels.

Jinxxed did mention in the mod description that they had some trouble with Dimitrescu’s claws that come out of her fingers in Resident Evil Village. In Skyrim, characters fight with their fists and not an open palm, so as you can imagine, attacking with the claws doesn’t sit well with the game’s fantasy aesthetics.

Thankfully though, Jinxxed plans to work on this and find a way to fix the claw situation so that Miss Dimitrescu can fit in better and instead of ripping the head of her victims, she can give them a good old walloping instead.

You can download the mod right here but as always, read the description beforehand and follow the instructions.

Resident Evil Village is now available on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, and PC.
