🎃 Halloween: Game of Thrones Style

The model and creator of the costume pictured in this post is Genavieve Pimenow. The below statements are her explanations of her costume and makeup.

“As a Game of Thrones fan, I decided to dress as Cersei Lannister for Halloween this year. I wanted to go for a slightly more generic, but historically accurate look though so I did not want to fully recreate one of her costumes. Likewise, I went with one of her older looks instead of her new short hair, all in black look.”

For “Cersei Costume” Picture:
“I took the basic Lannister red and gold from one of her costumes and tried to make the dress based off a more historically accurate 12th century bliaut pattern. The dress has a gored skirt and side ties to close.”

For “Cersei Costume Sleeve Trim” Picture:
“The gold bands, pearls, and red jewels were all sewn on by hand so that no stitching would be visible. And yes it took forever!”

For “Lannister Necklace” Picture:
“Of course no Cersei costume would be complete without a Lannister lion necklace.”

For two “Cersei makeup” pictures:
“Actress Lena Headey has very unique facial features so it is nearly impossible to recreate Cersei’s exact look. I mostly focused on trying to get the eyebrows and cheek highlights right (which was still not entirely successful).”
