G.O.T. Costume?

Last year after viewing the first season of my most favorite all time T.V. show Game of Thrones, David and I were inspired to take on the rolls of Daenerys Tagerian and Kahl Drogo.  We had just finished season one around Halloween time, so with the dvd as our costume aid I ventured out to JoAnn's to find fabrics that were similar to the characters'.  We then went to the Halloween Store to grab those little extras such as a blond wig and an arakh (curved sword) & pony tail.  If you'd like to recreate, I have some details down below.  Now the only question is, what shall we do this year?  I'm open to suggestions!


Instead of going the wig route for Drogo we decided to try to slick David's hair back and then attach this funny wired pony (I think it was supposed to be a horsey tail?) that we found at the Halloween store.  I attached it to his actual hair using two tiny black rubber bands.

We then had to use a lot of palmade & hairspray and a beanie to get David's hair to stay back √° la the Khal.  I attached curly black hairs we had purchased with some spirit gum for a thicker longer beard.  David actually cut a slice of his eyebrow hair with his electric razor, (I was against this, but he insisted on the authenticity) where we stragically were able to place some scars.  Added some drogo under eye eyeliner and voil√†!


Daenery's make-up is very light and natural looking.  To achieve this look I used a lighter foundation than I normally would and I put it over my brows as well.  I took a cue from my husband and also shaved the end of my brows, so that I could draw in a more straight eyebrow.  My natural ones are angled.  (I knew they would grow back, and if they didn't, well David and I could have jacked up brow hairs together)  For the sword broach holding her dress together, I used some wire and wrapped it around a metal ring I found at JoAnn Fabric's in the craft section.  I then formed some wire into a sword shape and covered it with tin foil.  For the dress I basically wrapped and sewed this pale purple fabric to my bra, and made sure to do the same design Daenery's has on the show.


Pretty close right?  Her dress is lighter in this pic than it was on the show.

Halloween Ambiance: Witchy Fingers, Zombie Books, Horsey Sliders (not really) but just going with the G.O.T. Dothraki theme.










We were considering having David be The Hound from G.O.T. this year, and I would be Arya Stark, however he has now incured a real life Drogo injury to his eye, and we will not be able to do the make-up required.  Want to see his injury that had us in the E.R. last Sunday night?....

Um... yeah.  So we need something a bit easier.  What are you going to be?

    1. Thanks Nnene. Yes, I think we have figured something out. We'll see! I know, poor guy, but he says it doesn't hurt at all. He never even took so much as a Tylenol afterward.

  3. Wonderful costumes and perfect styling! I loved seeing all the perfect little details on your outfits. Being a snob, I have no time for people who get their costumes out of a bag ;) David looks ferocious (though his beard looks soo soft!), I hope he feels better soon.

    1. Thank You! He says it doesn't hurt, and luckily the cut is mostly in the eyebrow hairs so the scar won't show. And thanks for liking our costumes!
