Just looking at the dress close up. Wow that pattern is so intense. It would take forever to do! Unless anyone has any ideas on how to do it quickly? It has so many little cut outs :/ Such a beautiful design, I highly commend anyone who does it!!!
Daenerys Cosplay Refs and Help.
So many lovely outfits and you’re looking, most can be made using modern patterns. You can buy some of these to made on commission or you can make it yourself. As with Joffrey, I’ll do my best to include as much information as possible and anything I don’t know or can’t find info on I’ll try and find you at least a few websites that might help.
For the hair it will have its own section so dont look for it under each outfit.
Personally I think an infinity dress would work well for this but thats up to you. It appears to be a silvery grey fabric, with part of the dress attached to silver arm cuffs. The straps are also black and silver. You could either sew these on or wear something under neath the dress, but only let the straps show.
Not sure exactly what kind of fabric it is, it has kind of a crinkly texture, some people have made it using georgette fabric, satin, chiffon AND satin, silk etc. Its up to you. If you decide to use an infinity dress pattern, you will want something with a little elastic. But if you are making it as an all in one, can dress slip into dress, you made not need to.
In the centre, is her two headed dragon brooch pin.
Her hair is mostly loose but beautifully connected by small silver beads, in various places.
Props that could work with this are the dragon eggs, find them in the prop section XD.
Any will be fine.
This outfit seems to grow in its decorations throughout the series. So some cosplayers opt for plain and others for intricate. It appears to be a wrap dress, but made of stiff blue fabric. She wears leggings/tights/whatever in grey beneath it with …boots? Idk hard to tell. She usually wears a claw necklace with this.
A few of the cosplay ones and comissioned ones are made out of blue linen. So.. thats an option.
Love this one and its pink version. The skirt/under dress will be the easiest to do, simple brown fabric, maybe something like suede? idk. Its been worn with a pleted white under dress/skirt in promos. But thats not what you want to know.
You want to know how to do that blue part and the lace armour. Don’t worry. Theres an app for that. (not really… im trying to be witty..) I can’t decide if its blue and silver or blue and pale gold or some other blue pattern. I chose blue and silver.
Very similar to above. Except in pink with leather armour. Very nice. :)
I think the fabric is pink with silver leaves but anything pink and silver will be fine. You may have to add the leave via painting them on or embroidering them.
Pleather, vinyl or worbla would work for this.
Armour (buy): 1.
This one so beautiful and flowy. Blue with a gold pattern. Most cosplayers agree that to get as accurate as possible, pick a blue fabric, a light fabric and sponge the gold on. However I’ve also provided you with fabric ideas if you dont want to do this.
some people opt for a more flowly, see through fabric and wear slips/under skirts with nude bras.
Assorted wooden and glass beads. Lampwork perhaps. Check charity stores for chunky jewellery or places that sell beads.
Dress and skirt combo in very earth fabrics and colours. A pin is worn on the left breast, a smaller worn is worn beneath, both to probably hold the halter top together. And two belts are worn over the hips of the skirt. Leggings are worn beneath with high pale boots. And gloves are occasionally worn.
Suede or linin would work for the skirt.
Its a penannular brooch.
Two different dress here. One white shift dress with a penannular brooch thats is its ownly decoration and a white dress, an infinity style pattern would work for, and the slave collar. She wears a bronze belt.
No fabric ideas for this. White for one, cream or very light brown for the other.
Both worn in seson 1 and if I’m not mistaken, the same episode? The first is very see through and I advise that if you plan to wear… wear something underneath, whether its a leotard, a slip, nude bra + underskirt. Its up to you.
I think its a lavender, pale lavender colour, with a thing thin white fabric worn over the top. Again no fabric ideas for this as they are plain fabrics. There are double/triple headed dragon annular brooches on both shoulders.
There might be stitching beneath the breasts, but I can’t tell.
The other dress has been called the Kings Landing Maxi Dress. I think its a pale pink but others disagree and call it lavender as well. Its up to you which you choose. The whole thing its stitched in a darker colour and held up with cords.
Not really any tutorials or patterns. Especially not for the back.
Gold or light brown scaly and pointy looking top with a layered skirt or a black/dark blue skirt with trims around it. Im sorry Im not good at describing.
There probably wont be any patterns for the top. I can only find ones similiar, but they will probably only be similiar in shape and back only. :(
Top Patterns: 1.
Sorry not much help with this one :( You could try something like burlap, a stiff fabric and paint on the scales of her top but beside that idk. Couldn’t find any cosplays either.
She has one them a few times so heres a few tutorials/patterns for you to play with.
You’re probably going to get a wig for this, let’s face it, not all of us were born with pale blonde hair. Sometimes its loose and sometimes its very intricate. You can buy either a pre braided wig or one for you to braid yourself.
Lacefront wig is probably your best bet.
(fortunatly someone all ready made a list of a few so I’ll start with those!)
Arda wigs reccomndations: Arwen in titanium blond, Luthien in the same, Matilda,
The most obvious are going to be either the dragon eggs or dragons themselves. Of course that might be a little hard but thats why tutorials were invented and there are many! You can also buy them too.
Ok..I’ve done my best with this and she will probably have more outfits to come. Apologies for missing letters my keyboard is on the fritz. And for any double posts, kept getting distracting by new kitten. If you have any questions or more Game of Thrones requests, feel free to hit my ask.

The detail on this one!
After trying and failing to do the dragonscale smock too many times, I think I finally got the hang of it!! Will be flattening it tomorrow and attaching it to the dress, I’m really excited to see how it will turn out!
And before anyone asks, the tutorial is here.
A couple of great pictures of my newest Dany cosplay, taken by Nils Katla at Akershus Fortress (right after the entire cosplay group had attended the GoT exhibit, yaay!)
Part 2 of my cosplay makeup series! This time I show my makeup process for Daenerys, which is probably the character I’ve gotten most requests to do. Hope you like it!
I think the eyes are what Ive been doing wrong all these years, great video!
What any cosplayer needs to survive a convention:
No matter how prepared I think I am for a convention I always seem to leave something important at home. To fix this I keep a small bag packed with items I know I can’t survive without in case I forget to pack…
