How To Dress Like A Dragon If You Secretly Wish Daenerys Was Your BFF — PHOTOS
Since watching Daenerys Targaryen walk out of the ashes of her husband's funeral pyre accompanied by three hatchlings, I have adored the Mother Of Dragons. And seeing the little cherubs grow over the years has actually made me want to learn to dress like Daenerys Targaryen's dragons. Believe it or not, this is actually quite possible due to a rise in magical dragon-inspired fashions. Personally, I've always admired Ms. Targaryen herself, since her days as Khaleesi and even as far back as when she was plain, old Dany. As the GoT plot line has progressed and Daenerys' character has developed and gained a plethora of intricate names, I would actually count her as one of my main fictional role models.
But as Daenerys has evolved, so too have her dragons; growing from the size of cats to gigantic, reptilian beasts she can fly on. Their personalities have also come into the spotlight, with Drogon being the obvious alpha dragon — more vicious, powerful, and independent than his clutch mates. In order to pay homage to her "children" and the Targaryen sigil, Daenerys wears dragon-inspired fashion as well. But Game Of Thrones isn't the only series making references to dragons via the medium of clothing. The How To Train Your Dragon movie series contains dragon-inspired styles as seen on the main characters, particularly in Hiccup's scaly leathers in How To Train Your Dragon 2.
So channel these beautiful, legendary creatures in dragon style fashion and accessories.
1. The Viserion Dress
Viserion is named after Dany's despicable brother Viserys Targaryen, whom Khal Drogo killed off with a molten gold crown. It's no wonder that Daenerys named this cream and white dragon with gold markings after her brother, considering his cause of death.

2. The Rhaegal Dress
Rhaegal is named for Daenerys' brother Rhaegar Targaryen, who died before she was born. Rhaegal is, IMO, the stereotypical image of a dragon. He is mostly a vivid green hue with yellowy orange wings.

3. The Drogon Dress
Daenerys named Drogon after her deceased husband Khal Drogo. It appears Drogon inherited not only Khal Drogo's name, but also his fighting spirit. Drogon is the most aggressive dragon, yet he is still protective of his mother, which was proven when he rescued her at the end of Season 5. He is black all over with red highlights in his wings and in some of his scales.
