Written by Riri (@lillyums)

This week's Cosplay Wednesday welcomes KeiraSera Cosplay. Her cosplay of Saskia from The Witcher 2 is absolutely mind blowingly beautiful.  In The Witcher 2 game, Saskia is known as the Dragonslayer, and a strong and admirable female NPC.  Let's see what KeiraSera has to say about her cosplay progress with Saskia and how she brought her alive.

1. How long have you been cosplaying?
About 4 years

2. Why did you choose to cosplay this character?:
Saskia is one of the most prominent female NPC's in The Witcher 2. She can take command of a room the moment she enters. Her strong presence and ability to band together everyone in a time of need is admirable. She also (spoilers) turns into a dragon. Who wouldn't want to cosplay her?!

3. How long did it take you to complete?
The majority within 2 weeks. But the overall process and slow build up equaled out to roughly a month.

4. Any difficulties when constructing the costume?
Saskia was the first full armor I built. I did not anticipate the amount of dry time between sealing layers and paint layers. I will factor that into future builds.

5. What do you love most about cosplaying this character?
I feel like such a badass wearing full armor! It may be made of thermoplastic, but the look and effects that I created make me feel like I could step unto the battle field and fight for my cause!

6. Where did you debut this costume? If you haven't... where do you plan to debut?
Emerald City Comicon 2016

7. What's next? Cosplay related of course...
Warlock armor from the video game "Destiny", DLC "Rise of Iron" premiering Fall 2016.

Debut date of cosplay will be PAX West 2016

We are looking forward to seeing you debut your newest cosplays this PAX!
