Yennefer of Vengerberg – DLC Costume tutorial

Photographer: Peter Krul   I didn’t take pictures of all the steps, but I decided to make a blog post and share what I’ve learned so far 🙂 Hopefully this will be of some use to someone out there 🙂 For what it’s worth, with Aloy I am currently taking pics of every step, so that might help some of you 🙂 So, without further ado: let’s get to WORK!
