Description
I love how Daenerys' style is evolving during her journey and fell in love with her new fierce outfit, that she will be wearing during season 3.

I want to wear this outfit for the Dutch event Elf Fantasy Fair in April 2013, but since the new season of GoT is airing 31 March, I'll have to work from the (rather blurry and unclear) pictures from the set in Morocco.

From what I can see on the pictures, Dany is wearing similar or the same boots and distressed leather pants that she wore since she became Khaleesi.
The top/dress/tunic is made of some sort of chambray with dark grey lace or embroidery over the bust, and a she is wearing a new version of the fang necklace that she also wore when she ate the horse heart Vaes Dothrak in season 1.

Distressed jeans to match her leather pants (Posted 27th November 2012)

I have looked all over the place to find a good alternative for the leather pants Daenerys is wearing. Real leather pants were too expensive, fake leather pants looked cheap and/or fake, most distressed jeans were either gray, black or blue, but not brown, and I just refused to wear tights or leggings.

But FINALLY I stumbled upon these skinny low jeans from H&M and they are just perfect! Really happy with them! :-D And they were only around 30 GBP, so me is also happy with that ;)

The left picture is Daenerys wearing the pants under her blue tunic on the Season 3 set, and right are the H&M jeans.

New boots! (Posted 25th November 2012)

Bought some new vintage beige suede boots from Marktplaats.nl (the Dutch Ebay). They were about 20 GBP. I intend to make them a bit more weathered, and add some pieces of suede in the same colour to make the 'ribbons'. Picture is reference picture of the original boots and on the right the ones I bought :-)

First purchase: the wig! (Posted 5th November 2012)

I didn't want to spend too much money on the wig (I read somewhere that the wig used for the series is more than US$ 7000 :|), but I discovered it is next to impossible to find a white/platinum blond wig that is long enough AND doesn't have a fringe or bangs -_-
Finally I found this wig on Ebay. It's obviously too long, but I can cut it. It will also need a brush to make it more 'rough' and of course I will braid it, but for $ 27 including shipment not bad ;)
