While we’re approaching the game’s fifth anniversary in just a few months, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt has continued to be an impressive source for fan creations and cosplay. We’ve seen everything from Resident Evil 2 mods with Geralt and Ciri to crossovers with CD Projekt Red’s upcoming Cyberpunk 2077. However, one Witcher fan made a particularly distinctive Witcher 3 cosplay with one of the series’ most iconic characters, Ciri, in a setting that one might not expect.

Over on the Witcher subreddit, Reddit user HellyValentine shared photos of her Witcher 3 cosplay of Ciri in a Japanese style with kimono and katana. As you can tell from the photos, she nails the cosplay not only with a stunning outfit and makeup, but also a perfect backdrop to bring the entire theme of the cosplay home through a gorgeous set of photos to accompany it.

The cosplay itself is modeled after the “Ciri and the Kitsune” limited edition figurine that was revealed by CD Projekt Red late last year, which imagines Ciri as a badass, katana-wielding monster hunter. While the statue itself is currently sold out, those that managed to snag a pre-order for it are expected to receive it later this year. That being said, it’s still impressive to see how HellyValentine managed to bring the figurine to life in her cosplay, and it’s hopefully a consolation to see it in real life if you didn’t end up getting one of the limited edition figures for yourself.

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is available now on PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC. For a closer look at HellyValentine’s Witcher 3 cosplay, you can check out the images below (slightly NSFW):
