Slay All Halloween Day in This DIY Daenerys Targaryen Costume
The silver-haired queen continues onward, never veering from her path toward glory as the ruler of the seven kingdoms. Talk about making a #lifegoal and sticking to it! Daenerys Targaryen wins. Not unlike the other ladies of Game of Thrones, Khaleesi was outfitted in darker colors in season seven, a departure from her more vibrantly colored dresses from the seasons of yore. Prepare to sizzle in this badass, DIY Halloween costume.
Materials and Tools:
- deep gray business suit
- red velvet fabric
- black boots
- silver chain
- silver tape
- hot glue
Costume Details: Cut up an old business suit found at a thrift store and turn it into a skirt. Then wrap the blazer over itself. To do this, cut out the center seam along the legs and crotch of the pants, then wrap them over each other to create a skirt. Use a hot glue gun to attach it and make the skirt. Create the velvet sash by attaching a silver chain with silver tape and fashion the shape of the dragon head with the tape.
Hair: (If you have blonde hair, then you can style your own. If not, order a wig off Amazon and follow the same styling tips.) Leave out a half-inch section of hair around the perimeter of your face. Then create three inside-out French braids going back toward the center of the back of your head. Connect all three braids using a small elastic, then wrap a piece of hair around to disguise it. Curl the front parts of your hair into small ringlets and the remaining hair in the back. If you end up with the wig option, be sure that the wig is curly, because you can’t use heat on most costume wigs. They’ll melt :(
Makeup: Go for iridescent hues of whites and creams to play up her look. She is both ethereal and luminous, so play that up for a flawless and bright look.
