Yess!! Go as MAN IN NEED OF A CASTLE instead, wave a "Jaime Brienne" flag and tell "He'd fook her, that's for sure! - And she'd fook him, don't you think?" to everyone who crosses your path

LOL, that would be hilarious, Blu and Aerest. ^^ I'll tell some of my colleagues, they might want to try MAN IN NEED OF A CASTLE's cosplay.

And as for liking Cersei... well, I can't say I really like her. It's a NIK GLEEFULLY WEARING HIS TINY HAT character, but it's too evil and selfish for my tastes. I chose her because I like Game of Thrones, the party is books related and I found Cersei's costume easier to imitate than Brienne's. But I refuse to get lazy, so at least I'll try Brienne in gambeson and cloak. That should be a little less tough to make than the full armour cosplay, right?

I'd go as Cersei.... just so I could have my big glass of wine in my hand!!
And I'd have my crazy big sleeves to hide the bottle in..... And bad boy Euron....



I have to say... you get cersei, sansa, danearys and even sand snakes patterns.... but no Brienne. I mean... do ladies who sew not want to sew a nice Brienne costume????

I am thinking Purple Wedding Brienne might not be too hard to repliacte. some leggings and a blue tunic with a high neck. You would have to add the tarth sigil and some high boots. You could actually go out and buy something similar to most of it I think .

Oh, I agree with Daynel. Go as Brienne in a blue dress.

And I would SO go as Cersei. Just because I love her red dresses. If someone goes as Jaime or Brienne, you can stare evilly at him and sip your wine meehehhehehhe. And if someone goes as both, you can take a pic where you obviously love your wine while JB cuddle. :3

Well, ladies, I did a thing. It was a perfect accident, but I nailed Brienne hair today. Sprayed that sucker in place and took a selfie.

Will attach the image in post when I get to a computer.

And here's the pic:

You're sweet, LOL. Thanks. And I don't know? I don't feel cute very often. Usually just awkward, LOL.

I am planning to make a scabbard for Oathkeeper out of foam and it seems like it looks best to put fabric on it. I have dug through my local fabric stores and quickly searched online and I can't find anything close. I thought a traditional Victorian pattern with red and yellow should be easy to find but I just can't find anything that has both the right colour and pattern. And I'm not being picky, I just can't find anything close.

So I figured I'd ask here before I delve into the depths of online stores and see if anyone has found some fabric online. I live in Western Canada so really as long as the website is in English that's good.

Ooo... ooo... me, me, me.... its proper gold and a proper rich Lannister red (better than even the repro one by Valyrian steel). Proper metallic gold!!

lion buttons are...

Thank you, Sophie. I would like to find somewhere more local so the shipping isn't so bad, but that gives me some more key words and manufacturer names to search for. Those look perfect. A bit pricey especially with shipping, but perfect.

Bless these cosplayers!

*puts this on my long list of things to put on my grave*

Edit: How do we pay Gwen, Nik, and Lena to do a shoot like this before Season 8? XD

Except that it's Jaime and Brienne walking away, Gwen, Nik and Lena as the guy staring after, and JC stans as the annoyed girlfiend.

LOL! But we've already seen this with Cersei!!!? I can't stop thinking about that season 7 script!!



I'm off to my Geekfest today with my Brienne of Tarth costume completed. I'll try and get some pictures for you lot to have a good laugh! I've gone for the blue dress and jacket from season 4 as no swords are allowed at the Geekfest! I'm looking forward to joining in because I've always been so impressed by the amount of effort that goes into getting dressed up at this thing! So fingers crossed I'll get some good pics!

I realise that I need Nerdy's cool hair and look!

My costume looks like... (I made this!! I did... the jacket is made from upholstery fabric!).... before I went out... But I did have to spend an hour sitting through people talking about the progression of Sansa's dresses.... no mention of Brienne. Oh my days!
