Description
I had never heard of this series until the TV show, and then the obsession started. I bought all of the books and I love them like qwieuhtjkfdi.
Dany has been my favourite character from the start. she's a badass. with dragons. So I was just naturally drawn to her since I bond with characters that are also badasses like me.

The only time i touched my sewing machine for this costume was to sew about an inch on the back of the skirt. easiest costume ever.
When I wore this, so many people said "khaleesi" to me as they walked past. it was awesome. and Thresh's actor from The Hunger Games shouted khaleesi at me. fun!

Oh yes! Another Song of Ice and Fire fan :D

I'll be looking forward to seeing this. Dothraki Daenerys is badass. Clip Alduin/Drogon's claws before perching him shoulder-wise or he'll cut you something awful. :)

Really awesome Daenerys costume, I'd have never thought of using Alduin as Drogon that's a great idea :D

Journal

JASON MAMOA (Posted 4th September 2012)

Putting this photo here to make room for others in my gallery! Jason was such a sweetie and whispered "moon of my life" in dothraki into my ear. i think my face was like O___O because other people behind the desk looked amused haha.

Wig (Posted 16th May 2012)

Dany's hair is a mess of braids. Luckily her hair is messy since she's out in the wastes in the outfit, but i'm not sure i'm happy with it. wig styling isn't my strong point so i don't know if i'll be redoing it or what. i kept pieces of hair at the front instead of having it all tied up, not sure if it will stay that way.
Also - not sure if the ends are TOO wavy, I was thinking of using the hot water method to loose them a bit. not sure if it needs to be trimmed either, i will need to try it on again

Close up (Posted 12th May 2012)

wanted to put a close up photo up so you could see ALL OF THE STITCHING.

Top detail (Posted 12th May 2012)

I've been hand sewing for more than 6 hours, and the detail on my Dany top is finally done! i will hopefully finish the whole thing tomorrow if i get some suitable wool to make the straps out of. The detail was so time consuming but i'm really happy with it, so it's worth it. photos soon!

Pauldron (Posted 6th May 2012)

Really not happy with it. I'm going to adjust/remake the straps because they don't match the reference at all. CURSES.

Top base (Posted 3rd May 2012)

I literally just wrapped the fabric around me and it was exactly the same as how Dany's is laid out. |: I wasn't expecting that. I made a pattern out of scrap fabric, and this is it on the actual fabric. it's only pinned for now. It doesn't really look like much now but i'm going to be handsewing some details in, etc. i've also got to get some tattoo makeup, they don't really suit Dany lolz
