When playing “Witcher 3 – Wild Hunt“, i could not decide on a costume to make for myself. I liked both Yennefer’s and Ciri’s main clothing, but the DLC Yen as well. I already started with planning at a time, when the sorceress had only appeared some seconds on screen. Finally, I decided to make her main clothing. I did the design by looking at some screencaps and art on Pinterest. All of the pieces are in black and white and show a stunning amount of detail. This fits the description of Yen in the books.

First of all, Yennefer wears a white shirt, that I made of cotton. The same material is used to create the side pieces of the trousers. The next layer is kind of a scarf round her waist. It can only be seen where the jacket ends. Both pieces are made of velvet with a flower design. In addition, I had to sew pieces of leather on the jacket and did some simple embroidery stitches in white on several garments.

In addition, I had to alter boots to overknee-level  and sew leather gloves. I wear it with a piece of fur round the shoulders and found a nice amulet on eBay.

A detailed making-of can be found here, too.

  1. Hello! I am so inspired by your talent. I’ve spent so long online looking for gold end caps like the ones shown in your making-of page. Could you tell me where you got them from? I’m trying to make my own Yen outfit right now. 😊

    1. Hi! Thanks for the comment! I ordered the caps at an online shop called Vana Cava Design. They are located in Britain and mainly sell materials for corsetry. If you want, show me a photo of your finished project.

  2. Wow! I am loving Netflix’s The Witcher! Henry Cavill is especially good in the show. His Geralt is just spot on. I think though that I like the Mandalorian a little better than The Witcher though if I’m being honest. I can’t wait for the next season already.
