Daenerys Targaryen has had several outfits over the course of Game of Thrones, and one of the most popular ones chosen by cosplayers is her ensemble from Qarth. It’s light and looks comfortable and though it’s not a simple costume, it would probably be relatively easy to make. Sonny Joon drafted her own pattern for the dress and made the wide belt to go with it. It looks like she crafted the webbed, metallic-looking band from craft foam. She applied the gold pattern to the fabric of the dress by hand with a sponge and gold metallic pigment. You can see a few pictures of the making of the cosplay below.
