So… I got into watching Game of Thrones this year, and I pretty much love it. Binge-watched through Seasons 1 and 2, and improved friendships with people who had HBO to watch Season 3. Halloween is (apparently) a big holiday here in my new home of Madison, WI, so I started thinking about it early. And after seeing Danerys Targarean strut around in that blue dress throughout most of Season 3, I decided that would do nicely. Not too slutty, not too cold, not too hard to make (hopefully). In case you’re boycotting GOT for some reason, here’s a picture:
In searching the interwebs for a pattern, I learned there is a whole Costume making subculture. Wow. CostumeCon and whatnot. Someone on a listserve there posted a sketch of the dress (and in poor form, I didn’t save her info to credit her).
And the costume designer for GOT posted great info on the embelishments. I will be doing some dragonscale embroidery. No big deal.
