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.
