Emmy-winning Game of Thrones costume designer Michele Clapton spares little expense when designing the elaborate outfits featured on HBO’s hit fantasy series. You, however, probably have a more limited budget — unless you’re some kind of champion LARPer, in which case I have so many questions for you!
Ahem. Anyway, if you’d like to celebrate the show’s upcoming third season premiere by dressing up and getting hammered on Iron Throne Blonde Ale you’re in luck. BuyCostumes.com wants you to know that it’s easy to cobble together a GoT-esque costume, using nothing but bits and pieces of other, decidedly unlicensed costumes. This “Cersei Lannister” look, for example, combines a generic medieval dress with a “Grecian Necklace” and — best of all — a “Flower Child Wig.” Insatiable desire for your own twin brother, unfortunately, is not included.
Read on to discover how to become Tyrion, Daenerys, Joffrey, or Jon Snow without breaking the bank. (Spoiler alert: one of the outfits incorporates elements from a Batman costume.) All it’ll cost you is $77-$162, plus your dignity!
According to this website, Games‘s crafty intellectual is some sort of Roman centurion. Whatever; at least the breastplate doesn’t have nipples.
