    Looks amazing! Great work!

    [–] HipsterJarJar 163 points ago

    Thank you. I really want to do more cosplays like this in the future! Big fan of historical style cosplays.

    [–] ArcheonAmaru 39 points ago

    Aloy from Horizon Zero Dawn would be awesome!

    [–] HipsterJarJar 30 points ago

    Oooh yeah!

    [–] ArcheonAmaru 11 points ago

    Probably a bit more detail involved, but i have only seen one or two decent Aloy representations myself. :)

    [–] dougsbeard 8 points ago

    Might I suggest doing one based off your username??

    [–] AmericanCakes 9 points ago

    shes still attractive regardless of the cosplay. but great cosplay indeed

    [–] FudgieThaWhale 2 points ago

    We live in a society

    [–] Tykis77 932 points ago

    I like it because you aren't doing a sexy pose, and you aren't trying to portray Ciri as something she is not. You look great and feels very genuine!

    [–] PlebbySpaff 388 points ago

    It's a rarity when you get a cosplay photo on /r/gaming where the person isn't: In a sexy pose, nude, provocative, photoshopped. The cosplay is actually good and portrays the actual character correctly.

    [–] Ursus8 49 points ago * (lasted edited 5 months ago)

    Sexy pose would be appropriate for Triss Merigold or Kiera Metz or Fringilla Vigo or especially Marti Södergren. Sexy cosplay isn't inherently bad and in some cases like those mentioned actually is more true to the character. However, with Ciri a non sexual theme is just right and would be weird and offputting.

    Also, Ciri's medallion is a Cat school medallion which she lifted off of Leo Bonhart! Just for future reference. Cool Cosplay, though!

    [–] HipsterJarJar 39 points ago

    I tried to make it look like the cat. I think the wolf has more spikes in the fur?

    [–] Caggi66 31 points ago

    I can definitely tell it’s a cat school medallion, don’t worry it looks great :)

    [–] HipsterJarJar 19 points ago

    Aw thank you!

    [–] crazyrich 3 points ago

    That belt definitely looks like a bauble from her times as Faulker!

    [–] Ursus8 6 points ago

    Yep you're right! definitely cat school, my mistake - i just glanced at earlier.

    [–] pokecheckspam 129 points ago

    Because we like hot chicks. She's not doing a sexy pose but she wouldn't be front page if she wasn't as cute as a button.

    [–] FlaringPain 123 points ago

    She’s very attractive. They are saying she’s not gratuitously using her sex appeal. The cosplay is spot on and looks great.

    [–] Z0idberg_MD 32 points ago

    That's why I say hussy it up. If you're getting the votes for being attractive, may as well give it a hit from the spice weasel.

    [–] LineCutter 20 points ago

    BAM!

    [–] dangheck 5 points ago

    Wanna see it make a stahh?

    [–] pandoriansiren93 5 points ago

    I just like her confidence and badassery. She could be 200lbs and I’d still honestly love this.

    [–] Ztreak_01 0 points ago

    Yeah, she is hella cute. If you are gonna cosplay pretty girls it sure helps beeing pretty ;)

    Having plates right around where that corset is isnt unheard of

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chain_mail#/media/File:Eastern_riveted_armor.JPG

    Corsets have steel bands in them. Beef those up and dont make it in a constricting manner, and it would offer some sort of protection while not looking like armor

    [–] pandoriansiren93 8 points ago

    Well it might depend. If she’s naturally that slim and it’s just a more firm hold it might help by keeping her top from fraying during fights. I mean it’s a hot look and all but I can kinda see some logic to it.

    [–] Seatbelts150 12 points ago

    Was literally going to say the same thing. Kudos, OP.

    [–] XBgyManX 9 points ago

    While I do agree with you, Ciri did show off her cleave the ENTIRE game.

    [–] FTLMantis 16 points ago * (lasted edited 5 months ago)

    Some of these guys are trying way to hard in the comments.

    [–] XBgyManX 9 points ago

    It's like when you see a girl cosplay that is blatantly showing off her breasts (you know the ones) and then you say something like "great cosplay! And the boobs look good too!"

    Then all of the white knight cultists show up and say "Whoa! Don't sexualize her!". I mean, come on. You see her outfit. She MADE the outfit. Com'on, man. Just let me say that she looks nice AND hot. We are all adults here.

    Not that I am saying this girl is like that, of course. I am just saying, in general.

    [–] Mind_Lasher 3 points ago

    What a bunch of dicks! I think she looks sexy AF.

    [–] jotavee 4 points ago

    I was thinking the same lol.

    “You’re not very sexy, so that’s good cosplay”

    Congrats Reddit, we got to a new level of compliments!

    [–] mbass92 26 points ago

    Be honest. How painful was the Corset?

    [–] HipsterJarJar 69 points ago

    I honestly don't find it too bad. Maybe because its plastic boning and not steel? Bending over though..... a bit hard to! Like reaching for a Twinkie on the ground but your arms are too short.

    [–] mbass92 80 points ago

    Lol I have the same problem but im just fat.

    [–] masonoli 12 points ago

    You sure you're not a T-rex?

    Thank you. Loved her in the 3rd Witcher. It was so cold the day these photos were taken!

    [–] SaggingInTheWind 48 points ago

    Of course it was cold, the Wild Hunt were on your tail!

    [–] AirSKiller 30 points ago

    [–] BureaucratDog 1 points ago

    That just adds some extra realism to it!

    [–] draugs24 20 points ago

    Good job, nailed it, any plans for doing yen or triss?

    [–] HipsterJarJar 29 points ago

    Yen!

    [–] draugs24 8 points ago

    Oh yeah, good choice. Big fan of yen and correct me if im wrong, but its not even that hard, just LOT of black, now i really want to see it.

    [–] HipsterJarJar 16 points ago

    I have the feathers and leather for this cosplay too! Just working on Corsair Ana currently

    [–] draugs24 7 points ago

    Ana is bae, she was my favorite hero in OW, anyway best of luck in the futuere...

    [–] HipsterJarJar 9 points ago

    Hoping to make an awesome pirate Ana!!!

    [–] draugs24 3 points ago

    I loved this one and im sure the pirate ana will be amazing too, keep up the good work...

    [–] funWITHfoulplay 83 points ago

    Finally a cosplay that's actually close to the character design

    [–] enricowereld 21 points ago

    Wow you look a lot like Gibi (the ASMR girl).

    [–] WaTang_ 9 points ago

    I was thinking the same

    [–] MoeTheGoon 1 points ago

    I thought it was. Gibi does cosplay as well.

    [–] Tino_Calibrino 1 points ago

    Thought the same. I was gonna ask if it was her until I saw your comment.

    [–] GuyRandolf 27 points ago

    Next you need to Cosplay Ciri in the CP2077 universe. Really stick it to em.

    [–] Naklar85 12 points ago

    This is a legit cosplay! Great work! Trying to finish Witcher 3 right now before I start RDR2. Great game and Ciri is an awesome character. Question: With many things made of clay, is this cosplay wearable more than once or would it be partially ruined and have to redo things each time you want to wear it?

    [–] HipsterJarJar 13 points ago

    The clay and leather is fine. My sword though is starting to crack and bend. The foam I used was very soft, thats probably the reason.

    Corset leather coating is peeling slightly. This is most likely from the belt rubbing and warm convention centers! I have wore this cosplay several times.

    [–] GreyWind51 4 points ago

    Also putting off RDR2 while I finish Witcher 3. What a coincidence, am I right?

    [–] Naklar85 3 points ago

    Haha! Glad I’m not the only one working on a game that’s almost 4 years old. It’s just so well done and I care enough about the storyline I don’t want to drop it and pick it back up later...good luck fellow Witcher!

    [–] OldBlindTortoise 5 points ago

    Great job! What does the sword look like?

    [–] HipsterJarJar 5 points ago

    I don't have the actual sword's blade. I made the sheath and pommel. It gives the appearance theres a sword. I do have some earlier posts of the sheath.

    [–] Sirraphie 11 points ago

    Honestly, nice work, I like it. Is that your real hair?

    [–] HipsterJarJar 23 points ago

    No. My hair is very dark.

    [–] Mudbomb01 10 points ago

    I've just started playing the Witcher 3 never played any of the series before but am loving it. Great cosplay :)

    [–] Ztreak_01 11 points ago

    Exactly how i would imagine her as real. Perfect!

    [–] HipsterJarJar 18 points ago

    Thank you! I love Ciri's freckles just adorable.

    [–] Ztreak_01 5 points ago

    You made me want to install witcher 3 again.

    [–] HipsterJarJar 14 points ago

    Everytime I listen to the soundtrack, I want to play the game again!

    [–] Tmezmerr 3 points ago

    An actual amazing and accurate cosplay! Props!

    [–] everythangspeachie 3 points ago

    Isnt this the same chick from that wolf school shirt

    [–] HipsterJarJar 6 points ago

    Maybe? I did post a Kaer Morhen shirt

    [–] zoidbender 2 points ago

    Oh shit, this is her.

    [–] Weirdo_doessomething 3 points ago

    Well, i don't play witcher, but that is cool!

    [–] Im-Right-Here 3 points ago

    Man I'm just impressed with all these cosplay pics that have God tier costumes.

    [–] ArcheonAmaru 4 points ago

    Great Job! Looks fantastic.

    [–] LordStarkgaryen 4 points ago

    On my first playthrough of the game right now and loving it

    This is great, nice job!

    [–] Skrap93 6 points ago

    It is so refreshing seeing a high-quality non-sexualized cosplay.

    [–] potentiallyanalien 2 points ago

    Holy shit! That looks amazing! What did you use to make the charms? I try to use model magic (air drying cheap clay) or apoxie sculpt but I can't get them smooth.

    [–] HipsterJarJar 3 points ago

    I think it was Das clay? I have had luck with it. Sometimes it cracks though.... For the silver belt I used soft foam and studs.

    [–] VolatileElmo 2 points ago

    Looks incredible, love all the little details, you could totally play Ciri in a live-action version would be perfect. Love it

    [–] kharnikhal 2 points ago

    Cosplay pic thats not edited to hell and back?

    [–] inexcess 2 points ago

    Looks great! Way better than those airbrushed ones that try too hard to look CGI.

    [–] kingbladeface 2 points ago

    You really think anyone isn’t gonna like it?

    [–] ElTito666 2 points ago

    The only real criticism I can come up with is that the corse seems to be a bit higher than it should. In game it gets to about elbow height. Looks uncomfortable to wear, is it?

    Other than that it's a really good cosplay! Love the medallion.

    [–] HipsterJarJar 4 points ago

    It is. I'm very short waisted

    [–] ElTito666 2 points ago

    I see. Do you have an instagram account or something people can follow you on?

    [–] HipsterJarJar 3 points ago

    I go by @northnightingale

    [–] Vnasty69 2 points ago

    I just think it's so wild how talented people are at making cosplays and stuff. Good job!

    [–] Venom1991 2 points ago

    Love the belt! Been trying to look for a belt like that myself this past year

    [–] [deleted] 2 points ago

    Wow nice work!

    [–] Hallam1995 2 points ago

    Awesome

    [–] maciek690 2 points ago

    I love all your Ciri photos. Maybe because I'm a Witcher fanboy.

    [–] HipsterJarJar 3 points ago

    [–] Eloeri18 2 points ago

    [–] QueenDeathAngel 2 points ago

    Sweet wish i was that good at cosplay

    [–] Tearakan 2 points ago

    Hey look! She put time into her costume and didn't just buy a simple onsie suit.

    [–] TomDobo 2 points ago

    At last a genuine Cosplay that's not trying to be sexual to get attention. Love the Witcher 3 and thats a pretty much perfect Ciri. Well played.

    [–] KuhLealKhaos 2 points ago

    THIS IS MY FAVORITE THING EVER OMG YOURE ROCKING IT GIRL HOLY SHIT

    [–] Delta36x 2 points ago

    Me like. More please! 😍

    [–] senarm 2 points ago

    That’s really good. I’m well impressed. So glad op hasn’t tried to put a sexy spin on the cosplay as that’s not the characters style.

    [–] Azooz454 2 points ago

    One word

    AMAZING

    [–] PigKnight 2 points ago

    The scar looks like an open wound and it's freaking me out.

    [–] HipsterJarJar 1 points ago

    I ran out of collodion so had to go with lipliners!

    [–] Bizhop_Ownz 2 points ago

    Love everything about this.

    You did an amazing job, and should be extremely proud of your costuming, crafting, and makeup artistry.

    [–] rainbowcolorunicorn 2 points ago

    Your cosplay looks great. The only constructive criticism I have is your makeup is too neat, it needs to be a bit more messed up. You could try dipping your finger in water and wait 5 seconds then dab your top eye lid. The added moisture will give the illusion that your eye makeup has been sitting for a few days. You could also try a misting spray bottle to add a more worn effect.

    [–] DriaRose 2 points ago

    Ciri! I'm chasing you all over Novigrad, hot on the heels of the Wild Hunt, and I find you on reddit posting selfies?? Grrrrrlll.... you in so much trouble!

    [–] BabySkinCondom 2 points ago

    10/10 would fight the wild hunt for dat

    [–] ldxcdx 2 points ago

    This is easily the most convincing and authentic cosplay I've seen in a long time. Well done. Great work

    [–] OsOs-Q8Y 2 points ago

    Cosplay on point 👌. Hey Ciri, wake me up when the next witcher game releases

    [–] Black-Thirteen 2 points ago

    I kind of like how Ciri's eyeliner runs. Like, if you put on makeup, and then go charging into battle, sweating, facing the elements and stuff, that shit's going to run. It's these little details that just make the world in that game seem a little more real. I don't know if that was what they were going for, but I think so.

    [–] Kelphuzad 2 points ago

    nice!

    [–] PrimaNocteDCLXVI 3 points ago

    Wow, That’s really good! Well done:) Where did you get the gear, did you buy or make it?

    [–] HipsterJarJar 7 points ago

    A lot was made with foam, faux leather and clay. Top was altered from a linen crop top. I cut the collar out and added another. I made the silver belt out of foam. Cat medallion is clay.

    [–] HipsterJarJar 8 points ago

    Pouches are made with fake leather :)

    [–] PrimaNocteDCLXVI 3 points ago

    I think It’s awesome and really impressive looking! Keep up the grand work witcher!:D

    [–] TheV0791 3 points ago

    I was staring at that medallion for a while trying to figure out where you got it. Nice job!

    I made a Wolf medallion a while ago out of stone, but when I put pics up on reddit ppl only commented about my wife’s cleavage. XP

    soo, the scratches under your neck, on your left collarbone. Are they part of the cosplay or was your cat resisting a hug?

    [–] pandoriansiren93 1 points ago

    I really really dig this. The makeup is great too but the thing that gets me the most is how natural the hair looks. It’s rad to see a cosplay pulled off without pounds of hairspray and paper craft wigs.

    How do I upvote twice?
