Game of Thrones Cersei Lannister Cosplay Lit by Wildfire
Cersei Lannister always manages to look regal in Game of Thrones, but the black dress she donned in the season six finale was especially queenly. Cosplayer Chelsea Rebecca made a replica of the ensemble earlier this year and recently did a photo shoot with special wildfire lighting. Okay, the wildfire was actually a green LED spotlight. Chelsea worked with Greg Hollander on the ominous looking photos; they’re just the right level of eerie.
Care was given to the construction of the costume, which of course makes the photos that much better. Chelsea made a replica of Cersei’s crown from Worbla and found a quilted fabric to match Cersei’s dress. And then there’s the embroidery. She added the Lannister lions on the shoulders by hand using wire mesh and lots of tiny beads. You can see a shot of the embroidery below.

We are angry, frustrated, and in pain because of the violence and murder of Black people by the police because of racism. We are in the fight AGAINST RACISM. George Floyd was murdered, his life stolen. The Adafruit teams have specific actions we’ve done, are doing, and will do together as a company and culture. We are asking the Adafruit community to get involved and share what you are doing. The Adafruit teams will not settle for a hash tag, a Tweet, or an icon change. We will work on real change, and that requires real action and real work together. That is what we will do each day, each month, each year – we will hold ourselves accountable and publish our collective efforts, partnerships, activism, donations, openly and publicly. Our blog and social media platforms will be utilized in actionable ways. Join us and the anti-racist efforts working to end police brutality, reform the criminal justice system, and dismantle the many other forms of systemic racism at work in this country, read more @ adafruit.com/blacklivesmatter
