Game of Thrones cosplay: a most excellent Daenerys Targaryen (photo)

Larger sizes here. Boing Boing reader jojo.edtan's Flickr stream is full of wonderful photographs of cosplayers, and he shared a bunch of great shots from the recent PAX Prime convention in our Boing Boing Flickr pool. Here's a "Game of Thrones" cosplayer, as the character Daenerys Targaryen. I'm afraid we don't know the name of the cosplayer herself, but I'll update the post if/when someone identifies her! More of jojo.edtan's Pax Prime shots here; more Game of Thrones cosplayers at that event here. Check out this one incredible shot of a cosplayer as courtesan Fiora Cavazza, a character from Assassin's Creed 3.


      1. In the books I think Daenerys Targaryen is supposed to be about 14 when her character is first introduced, so that would actually be pretty fitting.

  1. That’s funny, I had to stop watching that show after three episodes because I couldn’t deal with the fact that the actress had super super dark brown eyebrows and bleach blonde hair (I know it is shallow, but it broke the spell). If it had been this girl instead, I’d still be watching Game of Thrones.

    1.  What, you mean the jewelry that looks like it’s made out of preserved tongues, or the slight bulge at the front of the throat?

      People think Adams Apples are a masculine trait, but women have voiceboxes as well, they’re just not as pronounced. There are a few people with slightly noticeable Adams Apples that I can Assure you are actually women, like everything else, size matters

    2. It’s the shadow of her jaw across her neck.  Probably cast from one of those hand-held reflectors.

  2. This is a terrible Daenerys cosplay! She’s got all this… fabric of some sort swathed all over her, almost as though she were wearing clothing. That’s like putting a smurf hat on Han Solo–totally out of character. You might as well pose her next to a man in such a way as to suggest that their relationship was not based on incest, rape, or prostitution. 

    (I kid because I love. The HBO series, not cosplay, but yay for high-quality cosplay.)

  3. Just a head’s up, Xeni. Fiora is actually from the short-film Assassins Creed: Ascendance, as well as the Facebook game Assassin’s Creed: Project Legacy. Assasin’s Creed 3 takes place in America during the Revolutionary War, so there are not too many Italian courtesans there. ;)

  4. I love the photos, but the blonde guy is supposed to be Tyrion?? I’m all for creative re-interpretation (my favourite Batman-style cosplay photos are of a Slave-Lei-Harlequin and Jedi-Joker), but surely he’d make a better young Tywin Lannister!

  5. Do these people do anything after the dressing up and posing? do they put on a little show or something? This cosplay thing has had me confused from the start. Used to be fun as a kid to dress in costume when it wasn’t Halloween, you know, Superman for the movie. I must be getting my fuddy-duddy on because this is all too serious. Which of course just brings me back around to ‘whatever floats your boat’!
