How To Make A Homemade Khaleesi Costume For Halloween

Updated on January 6, 2016

Can't Buy An Official Game Of Thrones Khaleesi Costume? Make One!

You can make a great looking Khaleesi Costume for Halloween ( I love the Game of Thrones series!) and I'm going to tell you how. It's not as difficult as it might seem. I like homemade costumes that need very little sewing because I'm not a seamstress, not even close! I can sew on a button, or fix a tear in clothing, and with these homemade Khaleesi costume directions, those are about all the skills you need. Of course, you can always call a friend who can sew and ask them to help you make your costume, it's more fun when a buddy is involved.

Game of Thrones gives us many wonderful costume ideas and I've got a couple other pages you can get costume ideas from. Take a look at Game of Thrones Halloween Costume Ideas or you can check out my Khaleesi Costume lens. You will find costume ideas for both men and women and on the Khaleesi page you will find accessories like wigs, shoes, costume jewelry, belts, you know, the things you will use to give your homemade or store bought costume a complete and finished look.

Khaleesi Is A Strong Woman - Daenerys Grows And Matures, Stormborn Becomes Khaleesi

Daenerys Targaryen is a beautiful and soft woman. She dresses in Grecian goddess style dresses, long, flowing, silky, pretty dresses. Daenerys is called "Storm Born" because she was literally born during a storm. She has no family but her brother who is manipulative and cruel. He uses his sister to get his way, in fact, he sells her through marriage to Khal Drogo, a barbarian King, to gain an army for his cause. He doesn't realize this is the biggest mistake of his life. Khal Drogo is not what he seems and he falls in love with Daenerys and she falls in love with him. When Dani marries Khal Drogo she becomes the Khaleesi of the Dothraki people. A Khaleesi is a ruler, and Daenerys was born to rule, it's in her Targaryen blood. She adopts the Dothraki people and customs as her own and she matures from a young, frightened girl to a grown woman, to a ruler of a group of barbarian people who love and respect her.

The items shown below are rugged and tough materials, just what you need for a Khaleesi costume. Burlap, or some other rough fabric, is perfect to use when making this Game of Thrones costume. There's a beautiful long almost white blonde wig that looks very much like the long hair of the Khaleesi. There are some big leather belts that are a style that Khaleesi might wear and there's a very cute, fringed, top that would be perfect for this barbarian queen costume.

How To Make A Khaleesi Costume

Whether you like cosplay, need a Halloween costume or go to viewing parties, here are some helpful tips to make your own "Game of Thrones" Khaleesi outfit. Sewing machine and Khal Drogo optional.

Fabrics - What Kind Of Fabrics Do You Need?

Look in the Home Dec section of the fabric store for textured materials, like burlap, leather, faux leather, or faux suede. You can also look on Amazon using this link to find burlap to make a Khaleesi Costume. You also might want to check out the remnant tables to find some really good bargains. You can find ties, braids and snaps in the notions section. You can distress your fabrics and accessories with sand paper and scissors or use some tea or fabric paint to create that worn-in look.

You want your materials to look rough, dirty or old, because the Dothraki people were nomads and a pretty primative group of people. In fact, they were barbarians. They wore animal skin or cloth they made themselves. Their life style didn't call for lace and silk, it called for sturdy clothing that would last. Here is a very soft leather look fabric in gold. It will look great with burlaps and other rough fabrics for your Khaleesi costume.

How To Make Khaleesi's Halter Top

There are a few construction options, depending on your sewing/craftiness level. The easiest way is to take a large square of fabric and rotate it so it looks like a diamond. Cut the top point in half to create the neck ties. The side points will be tied in the back. This is a great no sew way to create your own Khaleesi costume top.

If you want to do a bit of hand (or machine) sewing, you can make a halter with straps. Again, take a square of fabric and rotate it so it's a diamond. Fold the top point 1/4 or 1/3 of the way to the back. Make ties from the same woven fabric or some other ribbon or braid. Sew them to the top where you folded the point down. Placing the ties closer to the sides will make the neckline drape more. The back ties the same way as the previous option.

How To Make Khaleesi's Skirt

Get a piece of fabric that fits comfortably around your hips and shorten it to your preferred length. Sew the side seam, if desired or fasten it with a pin, button or snaps. Cut a narrow rectangle of netting, or fabric to match the top, and sew or glue it to the middle of the skirt. Attach some lighter fabric on the waistband and layer some belts on top.

Finish Up Your Homemade Khaleesi Costume

Finish the look with boots, fingerless gloves (or wrap some fabric around your hands and wrists), a thick leather belt, and a long, blonde wig with plenty of braids. If you're feeling really creative, maybe you could make some dragon eggs, too. Just don't get too close to a fire. You wouldn't want to wake the dragon just yet.
