Cosplayer Ginny Di is well known for her spot on reproductions of Arya Stark’s costumes in Game of Thrones. She put a lot of work into making a perfect duplicate ensemble the character wore for most of season two through four. Arya’s finally changed clothing though and in season six, she’s even worn something a little different than what she had on in the House of Black and White in season five. As Blind Beth, Arya wore a rough ensemble that looked like it had seen a lot of use. Ginny got practical with her replica. She said she was originally going to do a full costume, but since Arya was only Blind Beth for three episodes, Ginny changed her plan and decided not to distress six yards of burlap. Instead, she put together enough to test out a new wig and makeup and capture some fantastic photos.
