Oberyn Martell Costume - Game of Thrones Halloween Cosplay

Updated on August 1, 2015

Looking for Oberyn Martell costumes for sale?

Like they say - look no further! I bring you the best Oberyn Martell costume, hand made and tailored specially for you. Do NOT go and buy the generic sizes, not all of them is going to fit you.

Oberyn Martell is one of the bravest and most favorite characters of Game of Thrones. Too sad he had to die such a tragic death. I don't know when it won't be "too soon" to talk about it. Anyways, back to the topic - costume.

Oberyn Martell's costumes always look so comfortable. And may be because he lives in the southernmost part of Westeros with tropical climate, he always wears an open neck collar. This is very contrasting because other characters seem to be wearing full neck collars, with even 15 layers of fabric.

This Avatar spear perfectly fits Oberyn.

If you are buying a dagger instead, tuck it under the leather belt about halfway. Oberyn keeps his dagger on the right side.

 

Oberyn and Ellaria make a perfect couple!

This was one of my favorite scenes from Game of Thrones. Notice how Oberyn and Ellaria are both not at all intimidated by Tywin and Cersei.

He even goes as far as to calling her former queen and mentally torturing her by speaking about her daughter Myrcella.
