Daenerys Targaryen Costumes
From Pentos to Qarth to Meereen, then to Westeros, and even all the way up beyond the Wall, we've rooted for and followed Daenerys Targaryen on her long journey. She didn't have much in her humble beginnings, but by the series finale, she had amassed 3 dragons, several armies, and thousands of dedicated supporters. (It’s fair to say that she lost some things as well.) But no matter which stop on Dany's route was your favorite, we can get you a costume that matches the on-screen style of that tim`e period. Check out these Khaleesi inspired costumes to see if any of them represent the moment you're looking to capture in your Daenerys Targaryen costume cosplay!
Dragon Queen Costume
It doesn’t take Daenarys Targaryen long to become more than just a mother to her dragons: by season three, she’s Mhysa, the mother to the freed slaves of Yunkai. You can capture her look as the Breaker of Chains by going in this Dragon Queen Women’s costume. It inspired by her threads from this season of Game of Thrones, and with our Dragon Queen wig, you’ll really be able to capture her signature look. Complete your look with a Drogon shoulder prop, and you too will be ready to rule with fire. Dracarys!
Winter Dragon Queen Costume
Flash forward to season 8 of Game of Thrones, and Dany is wearing thick furs and luxurious gowns to match her claim as Queen of the Seven Kingdoms. Case in point, her luxurious, white fur jacket worn at Winterfell and beyond the wall. We've worked to replicate that style and pay homage to the incredible Game of Thrones costume designer's work, and we think this Winter Dragon Queen Costume hits the mark perfectly. The fully lined coat features polyester faux fur with long vertical weaving to replicate the screen-worn coat's look.
Jon Snow Costumes
Jon Snow's costume changed up just a bit when he left the Night's Watch, but if you want to go in a Jon Snow Costume, the classic Night's Watch look is your first and best choice. We've created a worthy replica of that screen style, and it's got gritty styling and extra attention to detail to let you play the part. Top it off with our Dark Northern King wig, and you'll be a ringer for Jon's signature style.
Dark Northern King Costume
For most of the series, Jon Snow has been a member of the Night’s Watch. As such, he can almost always be found in the typical garb of the Watchers on the Wall. This men’s Dark Northern King costume features thick fur on the cape, black faux suede, and gray linen fabric for a worthy recreation of his Castle Black gear. Just be sure you're prepared to take your vows: “Night gathers, and now my watch begins.”
Dark Northern King Wig
Greasy, black locks are a signature part of Jon Snow's style, and you can get the look just right with our Dark North King Wig. It doesn't matter what your own hair is like, just slip on this wig and you'll be ready to do battle with the fiercest of enemies. Or, you know, hop into a hot spring cave and kick it with a friend. After all, you can choose whatever adventure you'd like when you're suited up in costume!
Game of Thrones Halloween Costumes
“When you play the game of thrones you win or die. There is no middle ground.” Okay, that might be true in Westeros, but we can assure you that there is plenty of middle ground for us fans. As long as you’re in a Game of Thrones costume! You can play the game, but the only question you’ll face is just which character you’d like to be? You could be a hero, a villain, the head of a noble house, a knight, or even just a commoner. (There are many ways to play the game!) The show’s been chock full of memorable characters since the very first episode, and while a lot of them have met their demise, you can still bring them back to life by assembling a character costume from the show. See if any of these ideas give you the inspiration you need to hop into the game!
Dragon Warrior Costume
For those of you thinking we already showed you all of our Daenarys Targaryen Costumes, don't worry, because we're not out of costume options for her yet! She had an expansive wardrobe over the run of the series, and one of our favorite styles is the dress she wears when she sets sail and returns to her family castle on the island of Dragonstone. We crafted our Women's Dragon Warrior costume in humble homage to that stunning style, we think it's an excellent recreation for all of your dragon inspired costume fun!
Khal Drogo Costume
He was only featured in the first season of Game of Thrones, but to this day one of our most requested GoT costumes is a Khal Drogo costume. So we made this Nomadic Horse Warrior costume to bring the fierce style of the Dothraki to life. This costume comes with pants, faux fur loincloth, and faux leather accessories to replicate the screen look. The wig and beard are sold separately, should you choose to go full Khal!
Arya Stark Costume
Arya Stark has come a long way since her water dancing in Season 1. Through all of her ups and downs, she remained a fan favorite and one of the most popular characters requested when it comes to costumes. So if you're looking to do your own Arya impression, we're sure this Winter Warrior Costume will do the trick. We designed this costume to match her Northern style from the later seasons of the show. And the best part of all, with this costume you won't even need a "face" to look just like her!
Cersei Lannister Costume
Planning on playing the Game to win? Now we're talking. Of course, if you were looking for a Cersei Lannister Costume, we're sure you'd want to pick out a style that matches the fantastic gown worn when she claims the Iron Throne for herself. Our costume designers crafted this Lion Queen Armor Gown Costume as a replica of that style, and it's a very worthy homage. Thick textured faux leather is paired with foam shoulder plates and a metal chain to give it its signature style.
Jaime Lannister Costume
Who’s our favorite one-handed anti-hero? Ser Jaime Lannister of course! Whether he’s serving as Lord Commander of the Kingsguard or leading the Lannister army into battle, he’s the character we just can’t help but root for. Use our Renaissance Knight costume to become Jaime as he looks when he’s at home in King’s Landing. Get a lady friend into a Cersei costume or Brienne of Tarth costume, and you’ll have an awesome couple’s costume theme that’s sure to win any costume contest!
So you're in search of a Tormund Giantsbane costume? You know we've got you covered there. We crafted our own Wild Warrior costume as homage to the Wildlings north of the wall, and if you'd like to play the part of Tormund, all you really need is a thick red beard. And as it happens, we have a Wild Warrior Beard to go with the costume! With a little red facial hair, the faux suede and fur will definitely have you looking like you reside north of the wall.
Game of Thrones Swords
When you're looking to complete your Game of Thrones costume theme, a trusty sword is sure to go a long way. Which is exactly why we carry a full assortment of Game of Thrones swords! Our swords are officially licensed and manufactured by Neptune Trading, who worked with HBO to get each weapon's signature details just right. Our selection includes most of the named swords featured on the show, but we've got 2 of the most famous ones featured right here, Longclaw and the Catspaw Dagger.
Longclaw was the ancestral sword of House Mormont, so we should have been able to figure out that big things were in store for Jon Snow when it was gifted to him by Lord Commander Jorah Mormont. Flash forward a few seasons later, and Jon's using the Valyrian steel sword to battle Boltons, wights, and White Walkers. You can get yourself an HBO officially licensed foam replica when you get our collector's Longclaw Sword. It gets all the details right, like the wolf head on the pommel, and it even comes with a collector's box for safe storing.
Of all the famous swords featured on the show, it was the small but wicked Catspaw Dagger that played perhaps the most significant role in the events that unfolded. We'll let you be the judge of that (no spoilers here) but in the meantime, you'll definitely want to grab this foam Catspaw Dagger for your collection or to keep at your side when you suit up in an Arya Stark costume. Do your own training to get down a quick hand switch maneuver—you just never know when it may come in handy!
Frozen Lake Battle
There are many memorable moments throughout the series, but when it comes to battle sequences, there's one icy encounter in particular that's sure to stay fresh in fan's minds. And that would be, of course, the fierce battle when Jon Snow's band took on wights and White Walkers on a frozen lake north of the wall. You can recreate this iconic television moment by grabbing our Dark Northern King Costume and Wild Warrior Costume to recreate the scene with Jon and Tormund. Check these Love Your Look images to see if they inspire your next costume cosplay!
Icy Island: Jon Snow and Tormund Giantsbane
So Jon and Tormund are stuck on the lake's tiny rock island, remaining safe from Wight attack only due to the thin ice surrounding them. We think if you found yourself in a similar situation, you'd spend a significant amount of time sizing up the scene and plotting your next move. That's exactly what our Jon and Tormund are doing right here. Make your own battle plans when you suit up in these Made By Us costumes. Maybe you won't be able to hatch a plan to save the day, but at least you're going to look great with the attention to detail featured on each of these costume styles.
Game of Thrones Cosplay
From the expression on our Jon's face, we think the Night King just had a mic drop moment. As in, a bullseye with his ice spear! You’ll still have to find a way out of the situation, so stand just like our guy in this photo, with an intense stare and a sense of amazement. If your acting skills aren't super refined, don't worry, our costume will do the heavy lifting. After all, it sure carries some intensity with its deep blacks and plenty of faux fur.
Ready for Battle Against the Night King
Grab your axe, grab your sword, and get ready for battle. Because the ice has frozen over and those wights are coming! We hope you arm yourself with some of our prop weapons for your own faux battle scene. We don't offer any Valyrian steel, obviously, but our prop weapons are sure to do a great job of completing your costume theme. We have the officially licensed foam Longclaw sword as well as a plastic axe that works great for Tormund. Just grab your weapons and give your buddy a final glance before you engage the enemy—this battle is about to go down!
Game of Thrones Costume DIY
When it comes to Game of Thrones Costume DIY ideas, it's safe to say we've got you covered. And that's because our own team of costume experts has been crafting and customizing our own DIY Game of Thrones Costumes since the show first debuted! Check out some of our favorite DIYs of all time right here and see if any of our images inspire you to take your costume to the next level with a few expertly applied tips and tricks.
Easy Going Khaleesi
Oh, the life of a Khaleesi. While it isn’t all fun and games, there’s usually plenty of time for leisurely activities. Because, whether you’re chilling in Qarth or if you’re ruling in Mereen, you’ve gotta take at least a little time to enjoy the tropical locales! We wanted to let our Mother of Dragons take it super easy, so we used a Spartan Queen style to create a custom Khaleesi costume. A Golden Goddess wig will give you the braided blond look of Targaryen ancestry, and a dash of makeup and a dragon armband will complete the character effect. There’s also one super important way to set yourself apart from the other Danys of the world, and that would be by making sure you have a dragon in tow for your Halloween fun. We have plenty of dragons to complete your look, be it a Dragon shoulder sitter, a plush dragon as pictured, or you could even get your kiddo into the action with a Game of Thrones dragon costume for kids! Whether or not you’ve got the firepower to back you up, we’re sure you’re going to be a really, really great Queen.
No Shame Here
If you’ve ever considered re-enacting Cersei’s memorable atonement march from season five, let us offer you some pretty Maesterly advice: most folks don’t want you to show up in the nude. Sure, it would be screen accurate, but some modesty is an expectation and societal norm. Don’t let that stop your costume aspirations, however. Just use a nude bodysuit, and for an interesting upgrade, you can even create black bars to hang around your neck for the full “censored” effect. You can even make an awesome couple’s costume idea by having a partner dress in a Septa costume. (We used a combination of our Sinister Sister and Friar Tuck costumes to create this custom look.) Just have her chant “Shame! Shame! Shame!” and all you’ll have to do is grimace for the perfect shot. Do allow yourself to have just a little bit of fun with this look though. Because, thankfully, you won’t actually have to make the dreaded long walk all the way to the Red Keep!
Red Wedding, Party of Three
The scene that shocked the world was no surprise to book readers, who knew full well that Walder Frey was not going to let Robb Stark and his party leave the Twins alive. Robb didn’t make it through this infamous “Red Wedding” and Talisa and Catelyn Stark met similarly disturbing demises. For a great group theme, consider creating your own Red Wedding look. We used a Viking Warrior costume and a couple of our Women’s Renaissance dresses to create each character’s look and then, of course, we just liberally applied the fake blood. Robb gets a smattering of prop arrows to complete his soon-to-be-departed style, and his wife gets a smattering of imitation blood on her baby bump. Lady Stark suffers perhaps the most gruesome outcome of the event (with a vicious throat cut ending her reign) and you can create the effect with a cut throat temporary tattoo or with some extra latex and a really good makeup artist. While this group of Starks didn’t make it to season four of Game of Thrones, we’re sure you’ll be going the distance when you choose this terrific group theme!
Winter is Here. It's Him.
Doggone it, Night King, why you gotta be so scary?! The thing of nightmares (literally for Bran Stark) and the feared leader of the White Walkers makes a fearsome and frightening Halloween costume choice, so we highly encourage you to consider becoming this HBO villain. Having makeup effect experts is one of the perks of being in the Halloween biz, so we created this custom look using latex prosthetics and a whole lotta facepaint. You, of course, might not have those kinds of resources at your disposal, so we sell a super scary and officially licensed Night King mask for you to use. Choose some armor pieces or a knight costume to create your White Walker threads, and you’ll be ready to wage war against the living. Get a few of your buds together to collect some new recruits from Craster, or march your zombie wights against the wall. That thing is pretty tall, and it’s got all that magic and stuff, but we just gotta think there’s a way to get through if you try hard enough!
The Hound: Westerosi Road Tripper
Being the Hound is a lot of work, and after we transformed our model into Sandor Clegane, he’d be ready to attest to the same. When you spend all your time dealing with talkers and whiners and the general scum of Westeros, well, it’s safe to say you’re probably just in the mood for some chicken and a mug of wine at the end of the day. We created this custom Hound look with the special effects makeup kit and a custom trimmed wig, and you can do it with the same attention to detail. We made sure to get his signature scar just right, and in our opinion he looks particularly fearsome. If you’d like to suit up as The Hound, options for fun include going on a roundabout tour of Westeros with Arya, Battling toe-to-toe with Brienne, or even finding a little zen while building a sept in the Riverlands. Or you could just grab a chicken leg, put on our officially licensed Game of Thrones Hound Helmet, and be the baddest, best-dressed chap at your Game of Thrones party! Just remember, when you have this look, you don’t have to take any gruff from anyone—even the king.
