Costume Information

For a Game of Thrones group!

A friend of mine introduced me to the books and since the tv series started we've been watching it together. Had been thinking of doing a costume from it, but it got upped to near the top of the list for the group. :p

I like Jon a bit better in the books than the series, but as Arya is too young for me to cosplay, I picked Jon instead. That and some of his costume bits can be part of the ranger outfit I'm going to be redoing this summer..

It will be interesting to try on a beard. :p

You're going to be awesome ^_^

BTW While it's likely too expensive to buy, thought this'd be useful for references ^_^ http://www.valyriansteel.com/shop/swords/longclaw-sword-of-jon-snow/prod...

sjbonnar- Thank you for the link! I'm determined to make the sword, but the question is whether a meter long wooden sword will fit in my suitcase! ;p

Got all the materials! (Posted 17th September 2011)

Well, almost all!
Have linen and fake fur for the cloak, linen &amp; cotton for the gambeson and real leather for the vest. Now to find the right boots!

Wig and beard test (Posted 25th July 2011)

Had a wig and beard test and must say I'm not sure about any of this :p
Used the crepe wool method for stubble and couldn't get it spread evenly enough - on top of that, mastix and the remover are vile. Next time I'm going to try it with just make up.. (I removed most of it before taking the photo)
