Daenerys Costume Has Hand-Painted Fabric Instead of a Dragon
Daenerys Targaryen finds dragons, warriors, and beautiful fabrics across the Narrow Sea. If you can’t find a fabric similar to the Game of Thrones design for your Dany costume, you can replicate it by painting silk or similiar material. As with most cosplay decisions, there’s a hard way and an easy way. No choice is wrong, it can fit what you have the time and patience for. Cosplayer sexydeathparty used a basic tecnique to achieve the look by using a sponge and spraypaint:
Lay out your chosen fabric in its final state (i.e. the sewn and completed dress), put pieces of paper in between layers so paint does not seep through, dab your sponge into silver spray paint (acrylic should also work), and lightly press onto the fabric until you’ve achieved the desired look. You should practice on a scrap piece of fabric first.
