Daenerys Targaryen (Khaleesi) Cosplay Costume

I am a huge fantasy buff and I LOVE making costumes. I don’t make them very often and I have no particular skill set that enables me to create them of any specific quality, but I do love stepping out of the box and attempting a challenge. So, since I have gotten myself obsessively hooked on HBO’s Game of Thrones, which is based off of George R. R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire novels, for Halloween I decided to be one of my favorite characters: Daenerys Targaryen.

Khaleesi Daenerys Targaryen costume inspiration.

What do you think? Below is the final product. It took around 4 days to complete, not full days, but minimum 5 hours each day,  and I never ended up using my sewing machine (all hand stitching!).

And of course, being the video blogger I am, this costume wouldn’t be complete without two making-of vlogs. Enjoy!

SORRY: Costume is NOT for sale.

  10. Hey Nadine!! (see what I did there). Admittedly I did just register 5 minutes ago for the chance to win a postcard. But nonetheless, I’m a huge fan. I’ve been subscribed to both your YouTube channels since you were living with Olga in California, and I was hooked. I also liked you page on facebook. I realize now how stalker-ish that all sounds… I swear I’m not a stalker though.

    Anywho, your costume is just amazing. I don’t watch Game of Thrones but from what I can tell by the pictures of the actual character and you, it’s just about spot on. Bravo Nadine :)

    -Your Uncool Gentleman

  11. HI!
    I just wanted to say that you’re so creative! I can’t believe that you used a toy sewing machine (And fabric, of course) :O lol
    I’m going to be completely honest, I only just signed up a couple minutes ago on your website when I heard about the post card thing. . .. Don’t send me to jail! Anyway I remember when I saw the video about grapples, and I was addicted since <3 :) I also love watching your vlogs. Like most people I started to watch your videos when you first moved in with Olga, and I was kind of sad when you moved out :/
    On that somewhat depressing note, Love your videos and please please give me a post card :)

    • lol I fail xP scratch out the toy machine part and add in that you did it by hand (That’s what she…. wait…… THAT’S WHAT I SAID lol)

  12. Very nice job. Love the poses. You look very serious.

  13. For not using a machine at all, this looks damn good! I actually started watching the show because of your videos! :)

  14. hi! yay! thumbs up! i said all 3 things you suggested in your video! does that win me a postcard? haha xD i’m a Vancouverite too! (i THINK you’re from Vancouver. if not, whoops!)

    my oh my you are definitely the bomb!!! i smell a bunch of flowers and potpourri while looking at your ed hardy perfume-worthy pictures! Nice very nice

  34. WOW, nice job Nadyne!!

  35. this is so cool because i was just thinking about reading the book series that the tv series is based off of!!!! you are amazing!! and i would love to get a postcard from you- i bought one before and i got a great wall of china one! it is really cool thanks!!!!!!xD

  36. hmmm.. i love you !

  37. It’s a really good costume, but I think one little improvement could be to have the garments appear dirty, and to give you skin a slight dirty appearance as well. Over all though it’s really great, and fairly accurate

  38. I really like your costume. I am going to try to make one, the only problem is that I want to make it for Comic Con..which is on saturday. So I’ll need to hustle. Any advice would be appreciated!

  39. Are you selling this fabulous costume?

  40. is it for sale? i’d love to buy it for halloween 2012.

  41. Ahhhhhh I’m really trying to find this costume!!!!!! I was looking up how to make daenerys costume when I found this, and your YouTube video brought me here, and well yeah.

  42. Awesome!! The hair could use more braids ;) but otherwise: very well done! Too bad the costume is not for sale…

  43. is it for sale this year hahah i have been obsessed with trying to find the perfect one, lovess it

What are you thoughts?
