Cosplay of the Day: This Khaleesi Has a Horse!
We see a lot of Daenerys Targaryen cosplay inspired by ‘Game of Thrones,’ but we haven’t seen many that include a real horse!
The Bird (Samantha) and The Bee (her husband, Brandon) are hobbyists who make all sorts of crafts and love taking photos of Samantha in cosplay. Her characters have included Lara Croft, Katniss from ‘The Hunger Games,’ Rogue from ‘X-Men,’ a very classy pin-up style version of Wonder Woman, and this fantastic cosplay inspired by Daenerys Targaryen (aka the Khaleesi) from ‘Game of Thrones.’
They even got a horse to help with the photo shoot, and they didn’t forget to include a shot of a beautiful hand-crafted dragon egg. Daenerys is definitely a fan favorite character, and we always love seeing the different costumes fans put together to honor the great and powerful Mother of Dragons. (But seriously, when is someone going to cosplay Cersei?)
Samantha and Brandon are huge ‘Game of Thrones’ fans, and that love definitely shows in these photos and in Samantha’s costume, which is incredibly close to what Emilia Clarke wore on the show. And we haven’t seen such screen-accurate hair-braiding, either. Spot-on work, here.
Check out some pics of Samantha as the Khaleesi below, or head to their DeviantArt page for more of their work.
