DAENERYS TARGARYEN COSTUMES

In previous seasons of Game of Thrones, viewers witnessed Daenerys' continued transition to a dragon-wielding ruler of great power. Her attire followed suit, and she shed her Dothraki leather for a more regal series of dresses and capes in shades of royal blue. For this DIY Daenerys Targaryen costume, we've included four different styles from previous seasons befitting a Queen of Dragons. We have a long white flowing dress like that she wears in season 5. Of course, we also created three different styles that we designed and are exclusive to us! First her iconic blue Qartheen dress over tan trousers. Next, we have an outfit that incorporates her Targaryen colors, red and black. Finally, we also have that stunning white coat from season 7. Just add a pair of gold goddess style heels or sandals, a dragon armband, a platinum blonde wig, or even a shoulder sitting dragon to customize your look, and you will have the perfect Dany costume.

We couldn't decide on just one Jon Snow costume (big fans here), so we put together some different DIY costume options. The first is an intimidating "taking the black" leather armor, perfectly suited for the Night's Watch. The second costume option is Jon Snow's dashing Night's Watch "I'm-totally-going-to-kick-some-wilding-butt" winter gear. A heavy fur cape completes the, "Dude, I've totally been ranging north of the wall" look. Don't worry if you can't grow luscious curls like Jon before you need to wear your costume, we even have a wig that features those wavy locks just like Jon! Of course, your outfit isn't complete without your Longclaw sword!
