Whether it is Daenerys Targaryen or Jon Snow, choose your character wisely because you never know who the creator, George R.R. Martin, is going to get rid of next.
From the very first episode of Game of Thrones, Jon Snow has been quite the mystery. His character’s appearance reflects his deep, dark secrets that even he does not fully understand. At first glance he doesn’t seem to be the top warrior, but Snow continuously surprises everyone and will do whatever it takes to make sure the righteous outweigh the corrupt and unworthy.
Daenerys Targaryen began her story as the poor girl who was abused by her brother, but she quickly became the one to fear. She was sold to a Dothraki lord and everything she thought she knew about herself instantly changed. She became a fierce warrior and queen, and now everyone knows her as the Mother of Dragons. Men are not the only ones fighting for the Iron Throne…
Enter the realm of Westeros with the Game of Thrones FAQs. Whether you’re a loyal bannerman or new to the Seven Kingdoms, we’re here to answer your questions about creating costumes, exploring trivia, and celebrating the epic fantasy world of Game of Thrones.
Some recognizable costumes for Game of Thrones characters include Jon Snow’s black Night’s Watch cloak and Longclaw sword, Daenerys Targaryen’s dragon queen attire and dragon accessories, Cersei Lannister’s regal gowns and lion sigil, Arya Stark’s Faceless Men outfit and Needle sword, and Tyrion Lannister’s Hand of the Queen pin and wine goblet. Consider dressing up as a White Walker or a member of the Night’s Watch for a darker option.
Some lesser-known facts about Game of Thrones include that the show’s iconic Iron Throne was inspired by a real-life throne in the United Kingdom called the King Edward’s Chair. Additionally, the character of Jon Snow was originally going to be named Joffrey Snow, but the name was changed to avoid confusion with Joffrey Baratheon.
To create a Daenerys Targaryen costume, start with a flowing gown or tunic in blue or white, representing her attire from various seasons. Add a long platinum blonde wig styled in intricate braids, and wear a dragon pendant or choker as an accessory. Complete the look with toy or prop dragons, representing Drogon, Rhaegal, and Viserion, which can be carried or attached to your costume. Practice saying “Dracarys” to command your dragons.
Some memorable episodes or scenes from Game of Thrones that can inspire a costume or party theme include the Red Wedding, the Battle of the Bastards, the Purple Wedding, the Battle of Winterfell, and Daenerys’s conquest of Meereen. Recreate elements from these scenes, such as House banners, Iron Throne decorations, and dragon motifs, for a fun and immersive experience.
Incorporating memorable quotes from Game of Thrones into your costume or interactions can add an extra layer of authenticity and fun. Some fan-favorite quotes include:
“The North remembers.” – Catelyn Stark
“The things I do for love.” – Jaime Lannister
“The night is dark and full of terrors.” – Melisandre

Game of Thrones is based off of George R. R. Martin’s book series, “A Song of Ice and Fire.” The show skyrocketed with popularity as soon as it was released on television in 2011. We all quickly learned not to get too attached to the characters because it is a fight to the death for every character on the show.
Two families fight for the throne and everyone around them suffers from it or fights alongside them. Daenerys Targaryen and Jon Snow are two of the most popular characters, and their families are intertwined to extreme depths.
