There are any number of incredible cosplays out there from The Witcher game franchise, thanks in large part to the work of the fine folks at CD Projekt Red, who designed a number of striking, memorable characters out of the source material from author Andrzej Sapkowski. Every so often, the official social media for the games highlights some of the incredible work put in by fans, and this latest Triss Merigold cosplay by German cosplay Lena-Lara is no exception.
Again, this is specifically based on an alternative look for Triss as she appears in The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, not the character as she is portrayed in Netflix's The Witcher. Other than skin tone, the most obvious difference is the fire-red hair, of course, but the costume itself screams "game" rather than something from the show, which tends to skew a little more functional rather than ornate.

This weekend is carneval here in Germany but I’m not really a fan of it 🙈 So Wouter and me decided to escape from it and visit my brother in Bremen instead.

"Based on the best-selling fantasy series, The Witcher is an epic tale of fate and family. Geralt of Rivia, a solitary monster hunter, struggles to find his place in a world where people often prove more wicked than beasts. But when destiny hurtles him toward a powerful sorceress, and a young princess with a dangerous secret, the three must learn to navigate the increasingly volatile Continent together."
