“Toss a coin to your Witcher, o valley of plenty”. You’ve probably been hearing that song for quite some time due to the Netflix adaptation of “The Witcher,” but what exactly is a Witcher or what is The Witcher?
The Witcher is a fantasy novel written by Andrzej Sapkowski, a Polish novelist. The story revolves around the Witcher, Geralt of Rivia. Witchers are beast hunters that developed supernatural powers to combat monsters and otherworldly creatures. The novel was then adapted into a 3 part video game series (the third game, Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, is the most successful), graphic novels, and 2 television series.
Cosplaying The Witcher, Geralt of Rivia is quite intricate as there are many pieces of armor and clothing to pull off his costume properly. This includes a shirt, chest armor with shoulder pads, trousers, boots, a waistcloth, and gloves. Steel sword props should also be included to complete your Witcher cosplay.
