Information

Another of Freddie's famous last minute cosplays that is more complete than any of the ones I spend months on haha!

♥ About Daenarys ♥

"Daenerys is polite and well-spoken, but filled with quiet determination. She used to be cowed by her brother's ambitions and his occasional cruel rages, but her time amongst the Dothraki has taught her pride, confidence and skills of command. She is still somewhat naive of the world due to being young and living her life as an exile (with only her petulant brother to rely on for knowledge of the world), but she is intelligent and quick to understanding now that she is free to pursue her own path."

♥ About the Cosplay ♥

I struggled to find the right fabric so settled for a grey mesh over taffeta to make it light and floaty :). The brooch I made from 3 dragon earrings (saved me sculpting the heads) and milliput for the remainder. and the wig I styled entirely myself from a plain straight wig; definitely the best part of this costume. The dress isn't particularly accurate I made it in less than 5hours from scratch without a sewing pattern! I am impressed with myself for this as I really panicked I wouldn't get it done in time before LFCC and my photoshoot with Jason Momoa!

Her dress

this is the most organic costume I have ever created and by that I mean that I didn't measure or draw anything out I just made it, as I only had 4hours to start and finish it! This is also the fastest costume I have ever made, the inside is messy but it's done and to a reasonable standard considering the time frame! As I wont be wearing this for any comps, nor will I sell it I figured it doesn't matter as long as it doesn't fall apart! (which it wont!!)

Daenarys's Brooch

Since I love to have a go at making all aspects of a costume (bar shoes) I figured I'd make her brooch, as I knew I would be short on time with this costume I decided to buy dragon ear cuffs, chop the heads off and milliput them onto a chop stick as opposed to crafting each head by hand (would have take far to long!)

Styling her Wig

I've spent about an hour and a half on her wig, it was a poker straight wig, and now is all lovely and wavy, I would love to rough it up a bit to make more like hers but time is not on my side but may add to it at a later date, I've used enlargeable metal rings for the rings in her hair, that way I can clip them in without wrecking the wig styling :)
