A new season of Game of Thrones means a costume change (or changes) for many members of the primary cast. Seeing different tunics, gowns, and accessories is one reason why I look forward to new episodes. It sounds superficial, but here and in many other stories, the wardrobe is part of the story. That’s definitely the case for recent outfit changes for Arya and Sansa Stark, and Daenerys Targaryen’s rise to her current position can be traced through her outfits. The looks from the show’s costume designer, Michele Clapton, have become more regal, more confident.
The white, caped gown Daenerys wears in this season of Game of Thrones is a great example. The color stands out against the brown, sandy tones of Meereen. The clean and simple lines stand in contrast to the old Masters. Though we’ve only seen the dress a handful of times, cosplayer Amanda Dawn/Jedi Manda (we interviewed her here) has re-created it beautifully.
