Dracarys!

It’s no wonder Game of Thrones won an Emmy for its outstanding costume design over the past two years. Unfortunately, you don’t always see the intricate designs on many of the costumes but the work is nothing short of exquisite.

In the Season 3 Blu-ray, Designer Michele Clapton explained why Daenerys wears a bright blue dress instead of the traditional Targaryen colors of red and black (which Viserys wore): blue was the colour of royalty in Khal Drogo’s khalasar. It was the colour of the expensive dye which they adorned themselves with, moreso on special occasions such as Drogo’s wedding; so while Daenerys no longer wears a Dothraki-style outfit, she switched to blue as a symbol of her authority as a khaleesi and in memory of Drogo.

Clapton also wanted a dragonscale like textured embroidery which begins to emerge on Daenerys’s costume – a design that keeps growing and evolving as the season progresses.

Now check out this other Amazon-Exclusive Game of Thrones Daenerys bundle which includes a T-Shirt, POP Figure and Keychain collectible (although that keychain would be too adorable to use).

To finish, here’s my WoW inspired take on her most prominent costume of Season 3 taken from three different images. I had to do a bit of digging through my screenshot folder but I think this old foe works quite well here.

    • Thanks for the nomination. I enjoyed reading your post although it’s hard to comment without a name/URL option. Ever since I moved to a self-hosted server, WordPress or OpenID never work.

    • Thanks so much :)
      It’s pretty much the following – Blue Linen Robe, Cloak of Cheerful flowers, Soft-Soled Linen Shoes and the Scepter of Purification with some photo manipulation. I also used another chest/dress for the collar but I can’t remember what it was.
