A Daenerys Targaryen Halloween Costume That Will Win The Hearts Of 'GoT' Fans Everywhere
If you're a die-hard Game of Thrones fan, you're no doubt ready to dress up as your favorite character for Halloween. If you want to go as the Mother of Dragons, here's how to dress like Daenerys Targaryen for Halloween and win over everyone at the costume party.
Emilia Clarke plays Khaleesi (read: queen) of her people with a real infinity for dragons and warrior-like clothing. The character from the wildly popular TV series has already influenced fashion, getting us all to reach for dragon jewelry and braids. People love Khaleesi so much, in fact, they're naming babies after her. So far, more than 100 parents have named their wee one Khaleesi. You may see lots of Khaleesis (big and small) running around this October 31, but you can stand out with the right outfit and clearly be the reining queen at any costume contest.
If you want to dress like Daenerys, you'll need some leather and dragon scale-like garb, platinum blonde and braided hair, and some adorably rosy cheeks. Daenerys definitely has a signature style that is part feminine and part fierce, and totally original. Chances are, you already have some of these pieces in your wardrobe. Mix the right ones together and you’ll look just like her.
Here is your no-fail Daenerys Targaryen Halloween costume kit.

4. Leather Vest

Utilitarian and a little bit masculine, this leather vest would totally be Daenerys-approved. I love how Khaleesi is always in a leather vest when she's out doing work for the kingdom. #Bo
