Look Like A Badass At Your Halloween Party With These Arya Stark Costume Ideas


If you don't root for Arya Stark on Game Of Thrones, then I'm not sure we're watching the same show. Everyone's favorite li'l queen of revenge/tiny terror, Arya, has been through a lot these past seven seasons. So, this Halloween, honor her journey (and look really tough doing it) with these easy Arya Stark Game Of Thrones Halloween costume ideas. Start practicing your sword-fighting skills now, because I guarantee at least three different drunk pals will, at some point, challenge you to a duel. (And if you're dressed as Arya, you better win.)

When Arya Stark first hits the screen in Season 1 of HBO's Game of Thrones (based on the book series by George R. R. Martin), she's the embodiment of scrappy: She's pint-sized, sharp-tongued, and eager to outdo her brothers Bran and Rickon in archery, sword-fighting, running around in the muck, and whatever else it is that children of the North do. Then, as you know, everything falls apart.

Arya, seven seasons later, has seen almost every member of her family murdered. She has survived on her own for years. She has raised herself into a hell of an assassin, avenging the deaths of those she's loved. And she's become a low-key master of disguise. Think you got what it takes to embody vengeance? Read on for some costume ideas all fans will appreciate:

Baby Arya, Child Of The North

Ah, youth, such innocence, such hope. Find a metal helmet and a fur ruff — listen, the Starks love a good fur look — and you're good to go.

Plastic Child Knight Helmet, $5, Amazon

Caracilia Faux Fur Shawl, $38, Amazon

Baby Arya, King's Landing

Most of Arya's time in King's Landing is spent in her first official sword fighting lessons. Nobody has the time for skirts when you're learning to dance on water! Snag a muslin shirt and some simple gray pants — and find you a pal to build a wooden practice sword. Or build it yourself, I don't know your life.

Muslin Cotton Tunic, $23, Amazon

Girlfriend Twill Chinos, $60, Gap

Nymeria The Direwolf Feat. Her Owner, Arya

Nymeria is a queen and she should not be relegated to a mere sidekick!

Caracilia Faux Fur Shawl, $38, Amazon

Funko Legacy Action Arya, $18, Amazon

Arya ~In Disguise~

For three seasons, Arya disguises herself as a boy and wears the same outfit. In order to truly pull this look off, you will unfortunately have to roll around for at least five minutes in dirt. Sorry but you gotta! Authenticity is everything!

H&M Sweatshirt, $15, H&M

Stevie Sueded Ponte-Knit Pants, $25, Old Navy

Needle The Sword

Serve iron gray realness as Arya's most trusted sword, Needle, which was gifted to her by Jon Snow back in the early seasons of the show. I'm not going to say you should go around poking people in the ribs all night, but I'm not not going to say that, either.

Regna X Tunic Dress, $20, Amazon

Arya, The Girl Who Tries


Finaaaaaally, Arya gets a new outfit when she joins up with The Faceless Man. Sure, it's a simple black dress, and sure, she does a lot of sweeping and gets bullied by other acolytes, but Arya is a survivor.

Minibee Cotton Linen Tunic, $29, Amazon

Rubbermaid Corn-fill Broom, $10, Walmart

Faceless Arya

Same costume from the previous look, but add a spooky, unidentifiable face mask. Freak everyone out. Speak in riddles.

Plain Plastic Mask, $3, Classroom Direct

Oof, Blind Arya

Get you some white contacts and a bowl for alms. Maybe don't shower for like... a week in preparation? Your partner and friends may hate you, but your fans, oh, your fans, they will applaud your commitment.

White Eye Halloween Contacts, $27, Top Color Contacts

Burlap Table Runner, $14, Amazon

Arya, Oysters, Clams And Cuckles

Those! Spiral! Buns! Honestly just figuring those out (here's a tutorial) and shouting, "Oysters, clams and cuckles!" would be enough.

Crochet Fish Net Bolero Shrug, $7, Amazon

Embroidered Peasant Skirt, $50,

Arya's Kill List

Who's on the list? Write out their names on a plain white t-shirt. Cross out those who are, uh, no longer with us. Bonus points if you splash a bit of blood and dirt on that bad boy. Killing folks is not easy work.

Fruit of the Loom Men's 6-pack, $17, Amazon

Arya On The Road

Man, to see Arya smile, to see Arya with some pals - my heart, she breaks. This look is mostly A Leather Cape and gloves. Let's see what we can scrounge up, huh?

Upas Faux Leather Cape, $60, BCBGMaxAzria

Heavy Duty Work Gloves, $25, Amazon

Arya Of The North

The cape is the toughest element to this look, but I trust you: You got this. Also, don't be weirded out by the fact that I've suggested a rug here — Game of Thrones uses rugs for capes themselves!

WenVen Faux Leather Jacket, $48, Amazon

OJIA Deluxe Area Rug, $20, Amazon

Arya, The Executioner

Look closely — this is Stark armor, the same one worn by Ned, Robb, and Jon Snow. Arya, in this look, is home. Also, hear me out: leather vest worn backwards equals Stark armor.

Men's Motorcycle Vest, $22, Amazon

Faux Leather Skort, $21, MissGuided
