Hey! I've spend the last year making a Ciri costume for myself and after much nagging a Geralt of Rivia costume for my boyfriend.
Both costumes were made for the most part out of Leather and cotton fabrics, using the Cosplay Guides CD Project Red released as a guide.

I've done most of the sewing and leatherworking on these, where my boyfriend did most of the glueing and belt sanding for Ciri's sword.

I have some WiP pictures of my Ciri costume to share and I think if there's an interrest I can write up something about how Geralt was made as well.

The Corset was made out of leather with a canvas and haircanvas backing and steel spiral boning;

After putting it together I painted it with Angelus Leather Dye to get a more weathered and worn effect.


A friend of mine had 3d printed Ciri's belt pieces, but I wasn't happy with how flat they looked so I cut out the jeweled bit with a dremel and glued that to small pieces of pvc squared. The jewels were made using a clear 3d paint, several blue colours of Warhammer Paint and a darkblue warhammer wash was mixed with the 3d paint to create the edges. The rest of the belt was painted using "Leadbelcher" spraypaint and a coat of Art-deco silver paint.

The boots for Ciri were made from leather and a pair of boots I found at a thrift store. Here you can see my totally annoyed I hate glueing face;

After assembly I painted these to have a single colour.

Thank you guys! I will try to write up something for Geralt when I have a chance to look for some decent WIP pictures :)

I'm currently trying to finish my Yennefer costume in 2 weeks to wear for an event.
Instead of using leather for the strips, I opted to use waxed denim as it's easier to work with when it comes to making a trim from it and I wanted to incorporate the same material into the sleeve tabs as the game shows them as being the same material.

I also recycled another old pair of boots by cutting off the shaft into a boot spat for Yens very high boots. I used some scraps of leather to form the details and the loops where all her boot straps go. I still need to paint them with some Black Angelus Paint into an even colour before I add some small bits of brown weathering I see her have in the game.

It depends on the figurine, for this I found it much easier with a figurine, but for Geralt and Ciri the detailed Cosplay PDF files released by CD Project were a great help!

I did a small test fit of the (majority) of the costume parts to see what I want to change around. The lining of one of the front panels irks me so I'm going to unpick that seem and press the lining again before reattaching it. I do love how the colour of my wig came out when I dyed it, it's a real hair wig I had grabbing dust from an older costume, so I dyed it blue black. Still have to fix the rest of the strapping and sew lining by hand, not my favourite thing in the world. But yay! Progress!
