I am a huge huge fan of the A Song of Ice and Fire/Game of Thrones series by George R. R. Martin, so I decided to be Daenerys Targaryen for halloween this year :)

I made this top completely by hand. It was all made of burlap, cheesecloth, light thin cloth, and embroidery thread. I sewed everything together by hand and dyed the burlap as well. I then stitched together many layers to make the "fabric".

The skirt was given to me by a friend who found it at the goodwill bins and thought I could use it for my costume. LIFE SAVING. I altered that completely by adding some extra stitching details and staining it with dirt, paint and tea.

The boots were provided from a friend and coworker, and the tan riding pants were also purchased at goodwill.

To complete the loook, I had the mother of dragon's long flowing blonde tresses, and Drogon, the dragon.
