The Witcher Fan Stops Time in Electric Ciri Cosplay
Ciri shows off the best of her Elder Blood abilities in this dynamic cosplay photoshoot.
The Witcher Netflix series is back in full swing, bringing viewers back to the Continent along with our favorite witchers and monsters. Though it’s only been a few days since the launch of season 2, it’s already skyrocketed in popularity amongst fantasy fans.
One of the show’s best narratives surrounds Ciri, the princess-turned-fighter. As a powerful symbol of strength, healing, and destiny, Ciri has long been a fan favorite among book, game, and show fans alike. One such fan has shown for love Ciri through an electric cosplay, highlighting her strength in both magic and fighting.
PETRA GERMANY’S CIRI COSPLAY
In a showstopping set of photos, cosplayer Petra Germany (IG: @halloffemme) brings Ciri and her electric magic in full force. As you can see, she channels both Ciri’s headstrong determination and toughness.
Photographer Jeremiah Edwards (IG: @squirrelyjediphotography) expertly captured Germany’s Ciri, with Bane Grimm Bane Grim (IG: @banegrimmphoto) adding a touch of elven magic to the scene. Altogether, their work is a stunning showcase of true dedication to their crafts, creating a gorgeously cohesive set of images that look straight out of The Witcher series.
Impressively, Germany sewed, crafted, and styled every element of this cosplay. Firstly, she 3D printed Ciri’s dagger, as well as her main weapon, the sword. Both were Germany’s first time using the 3D printing method, and it’s safe to say it turned out amazing.
Following that, she crafted most of Ciri’s other costume features from foam or worbla. Through a combination of well-tested techniques and an eye for painting texture, Germany created realistic-looking leather and silver. Additionally, she states that she’s particularly fond of the boots, saying, “I’m very proud of the boots. I stripped and recovered a pair of boots and used the old leather for the upper arm cuffs.”
And, as if it couldn’t get any better, Germany teamed up with Geralt cosplayer and artist Bane Grimm (IG: @banegrimm) for some epic shots of the pair. With the focus still on Ciri, the photos show Geralt training with Ciri and watching her back – just like the games.
If you can’t get enough of Germany’s expertly crafted cosplays, check out her Gwen Stacey cosplay or her latest holiday-themed Harley Quinn shoot! Along with that, you can check out more of Edwards’ cosplay photography on his Instagram.
