This month is all about fantasy and what better series to tie into that than A Song of Ice and Fire? George RR Martin crafted an epic fantasy world with a huge array of characters, including fan favorite khaleesi Daenerys Targaryen, Mother of Dragons. This week’s look is based on one of her iconic costumes!
Khaleesi Daenerys Targaryen, the character:
Daenerys is a young woman fighting for power in a world where the odds are almost completely stacked against her. Sold into marriage as a khaleesi at a young age, she learns quickly that what she wants doesn’t matter to anyone else around her. She then watches her husband die and any remaining control she had over her life stripped away. Daenerys fights back against a system rigged to literally imprison her; she and her dragons fight back to regain control, hoping to channel their strength into returning Daenerys to her rightful home. She is strong and intelligent, and isn’t afraid to do whatever is necessary to further her aims, no matter the cost. And she has a pretty fabulous wardrobe while she does it.
Khaleesi Daenerys Targaryen, the look:
This outfit is inspired by one of Daenerys’s many iconic costumes from the TV series Game of Thrones, based on the series A Song of Ice and Fire. The base of this look is a blue wrap dress and brown leggings, in order to reflect the blue overcoat dress and riding pants she wears in season 3. The boots have a low heel and straps across the front, similar to the ones worn by the khaleesi. The blue scarf is in place of her blue cloak. Blue dragon claw earrings and a dragon wrap bracelet give clues to a fire-breating connection, and the final touch is a claw necklace, similar to her costume’s dragon claw.
