Game of Thrones is officially a global phenomenon. The entire world is obsessed with King's Landing, Westeros, and The Narrow Sea. We all root for the Starks and hide our love/hate relationship with the Lannisters. Everyone identifies with their favourite Game of Thrones character, so it’s no wonder the demand for fancy dress costumes are so high! Everyone wants to dress as Daenerys or Jon Snow this Halloween. In fact, we’re seeing more and more Game of Thrones themed parties cropping up, and sales are flying!
The best thing about Game of Thrones fancy dress is the sheer number of options. Every character has their unique quirks and style. Each has their own amazing personality, and they’re immediately recognizable. We’ve worked hard to capture the fantasy world of Westeros in our costumes. Unfortunately, we don’t have any dragons, but we’re sure you could create your own dragon's egg to go with the outfit! Here are our favourite costumes.
If you’ve got a big group of guys, teaming up as the Night’s Watch is the perfect idea. You might have to fight it out to decide who gets to be Jon Snow, and who ends up with Samwell Tarly! This is a simple but powerful costume. Everyone in black and fur coats, swords at the ready, and fierce, straggly hair. You could even bring along a couple of huskies (or plush toys) to complete the look!
It’s no surprise that our most popular girls costume in the Game of Thrones category is the Daenerys outfit. She’s the beautiful, powerful Khalesi, exiled to Essos. However, she marries the fierce Khal Drogo, and proves herself as the Dragon Queen. As the heir to the Iron Throne, she quickly leads the Dothraki army to reclaim it. She was voted the most popular Game of Thrones character, and it’s easy to see why! Our fancy dress costume is simple and elegant. All you need is an army of dragons in tow.
Dressing up as one of the White Walkers is your chance to get really creative! These ugly, disgusting characters from the north are ghosts, thought to be nothing more than myths. This is another brilliant costume idea for group parties. It’s a chance to terrify your friends this Halloween, and go mad with the white face paint.
The fearsome Khal Drogo is another fun character to dress up as. With his iconic long hair, beard, and eye liner, it’s a chance to have a lot of fun. The costume comes with a thick leather stomach piece, and the iconic kilt. As for the bare chest and paint marks, that’s all up to you! As a couple’s costume, it’s hard to beat the power couple of Khal Drogo and Daenerys, so you might have to rope your girlfriend into this one.
As for the others, well, there’s plenty to choose from. The mighty Lannisters are incredibly fun to mimic, with their iconic red armour. For the younger teens, the evil Joffrey is a great character to replicate.
