The Witcher 3’s Geralt Cosplayer Exhibits Incredible Skellige Undvik Armor

The Witcher Cosplayer Taryn is back again and this time he's ready to show off his very own hand-made Skellige Undvik Armor from The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt.

If you have been following DualShockers for a while then you may remember when we reported on cosplayer, actor, and model Taryn who loves to get his Geralt on and dress up as the rugged monster slayer for hire from The Witcher series. Since, apparently, we can’t get enough of Taryn and that wonderful beard of his, here he is again and this time sporting the Skellige Undvik Armor from The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt – all crafted by his own fair hands.

Professional cosplayer Taryn endured three long months of manufacturing the Skellige Undvik Armor down to the finest detail by using real and faux leather, faux Fur, numerous types of fabrics, steel for the chainmail that’s incorporated with resin, and finally worbla (a brand of thermoplastic modeling material) and sintra (a lightweight yet rigid board of moderately expanded closed-cell PVC) for the armor parts.

It’s fair to say the colors look amazing side by side on the finished product (as seen in the image below by photographer Daniele Cosenza), especially the vibrant golds and greens that seem to only heighten Geralts luscious silvery locks. Take a look below at the similarities between Taryn’s self-made Skellige Undvik Armor and an in-game shot of Geralt’s exact same armor:

The Skellige Undvik Armor set was first introduced to The Witcher 3 in a free DLC on June 24th, 2015. There are two variants: one is level 16, the other 41, and the stronger one is one of the best armor sets in the game. If you have yet to pick this up, all you have to do is go to the armorer in Kaer Trolde but make sure you have a pocket full of gold as it’ll cost you a pretty penny of 2500 in coin.

The Witcher 3 was finally announced for the Switch at E3 this year during Nintendo Direct and as expected, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt will receive quite a considerable downgrade from the original coming in at 540p in handheld mode and at 720p with dynamic resolution enabled while docked.

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt — Complete Edition is scheduled for its grand Switch debut sometime in 2019.
