Game of Thrones costume ideas

Winter is coming and that means halloween is creeping up on us, so I thought I’d start you off with ideas for costumes from the famous HBO series, Game of Thrones. I’ll be honest, I didn’t get into it straight away – I think we gave up on it after a few episodes because I thought it was too violent and gratuitous and already characters I liked got killed. Then I knew I was going to meet Maisie Williams (Arya Stark) as she was going to judge the competition where we made items of clothing from old books. So I had to watch it, just in case it came up in conversation! So we ploughed through, and it wasn’t until the third series when I actually started enjoying it. Then I really got into it! Here are some ideas from Etsy….

All these costumes are not only perfect for Halloween, but if you cosplay, dress up for Comic Con or have a Game of Thrones themed event. then they’re ideal. They can all be re-used at fancy dress parties as other characters too, such as knights, warriors, medieval princesses or famous queens. If you click on the pictures they’ll take you to the item for sale.

If you’d like to dress up as ultimate queen bitch, Cersei Lannister, this red velvet dress from Camelot Costumes would certainly do the trick with its large flowing sleeves. Cutting your hair to within an inch of its life is optional.

I was amazed by this Jon Snow costume – it looks fantastic! Using real leather for the tunic and sheepskin for the cape, it’s perfect for a Game of Thrones costume. Made by Suzanne Weaver at Kazaz4U11.

Brienne of Tarth is one of my favourite characters. I hope she doesn’t die any time soon, but she’s bound to, isn’t she?! In the mean time, I think she’d make an excellent character to dress up as, and one that I expect most other people won’t think of doing. You’d need a sword as well, of course. This clever outfit is from Handcrafted Armours and is made of leather, but still looks very effective as armour.

Spoiler alert if you haven’t watched the last series: I did love Margaery Tyrell, and I’m going to miss her a lot. I’d hoped to find a good replica of her wedding dress as that has to be my favourite Game of Thrones costume of all series so far, but although I didn’t find one, there is this lovely dress by Ask Kaylee Frye.

And lastly, here’s my iconic Khaleesi costume in Oshun Costumes from series one, when Daenerys Targaryen is with the Dothraki. This particular costume is made to order, however there are a few that are ready to ship right now, if you’re interested.

I was surprised that there weren’t more handmade costumes in the UK for the Game of Thrones theme, but I suppose it isn’t quite as big over here as it isn’t on a free channel. It’s worth catching up on though on dvd if you’d like to know what the rest of the world are talking about!

Are you planning on dressing up for Halloween? I’d love to see photos too!

Styling cream and khaki and enjoying a warm day!
October 16, 2017
Khaki green is another regular colour that crops up in most autumn fashion style editorials in magazines at this time of year – some years more than most. I’ll admit, it doesn’t seem to be one of the major must-be-seen-in colours of fall 2017, but none-the-less I love it! It’s almost a neutral, and seems to go with every other colour in my wardrobe, except perhaps red and grey. And pale blue. Ok, so maybe not every colour, but quite a lot! It goes perfectly with dusky pink (of which I own a fair few items), black, and every shade of brown from dark chocolate to pale cream. On this occasion, I chose cream….
My strange relationship with fashion
September 23, 2016
You may have noticed that my blog has been gradually overhauled and updated in the last few months (and still is – new logo coming soon!), and yet I haven’t gone with the same fashionable layout as most top bloggers at the moment – you know the kind – the picture that doesn’t scroll with your mouse, and the blocks of pictures. There is no doubt that this style looks beautiful, but I personally find it confusing. I like a blog that has clear categories that are easy to find, as well as a way of reading everything in order with the most recent post first. I hope I’m doing the right thing (I have already been complimented on the clear layout), but I’ve decided to keep my blog unfashionable, but in a way that suits me. My fashion sense with clothes works in a similar way……

Styling a ruffled mini-skirt plus the value of a cardigan – Weekly Wardrobe
April 10, 2017
I’m pretty sure back in the day, we called them Ra-ra skirts, but to be honest, I was never fashionable enough to really know! Choosing an outfit that looks good, but is also suitable for climbing rocks is actually quite difficult and I’m not sure I entirely succeeded with this one, especially considering the wind! However I had thick enough wool leggings on for decency to not really be an issue, and sturdy enough boots to tackle the terrain so who cares about anything else really?…..
