Casual Cosplay: GoT Throwback – Viserys Targaryan

25 April 2014

Ever so sporadically, I’ve been working on idea boards for casual cosplay outfits. For some reason I’d been reluctant to share them — probably because I had this notion that I should wait until I can actually put together some of these outfits in real life… But you know, there’s no point in waiting. Though I’m not wearing this for C2E2, and don’t necessarily have plans on developing this outfit in real life… I still had a lot of fun putting it together.

With Game of Throne returning for it’s 4th season, and having just finished book 5 last month, I thought it’d be fun to do some outfits from the show. This first one goes all the way back to season 1, book 1… Viserys Targaryen.

Viserys Targaryen cosplay

Top: Black peplum sleeveless top, something that can be belted with a nice black & gold belt.
Bottoms: I thought the plum leather looked good with it. A dark muddy grey could work too.
Shoes: Nicer looking combat boots.
Accessories: Black & gold belt, black leather bag that looks like it’d be good for travel/riding, Targaryen house cress necklace, and gold knit beanie (which, I mean, obviously).

I could actually seeing myself doing this one, especially as I grow out my bleached hair. But I’d adjust the pants because leather just isn’t my style. But something along that color though.

Anyway, I couldn’t help myself when I came up with this one. And yes, I giggled a lot.

  • Ooh I like the way this looks! I think if you did more similar to this you’d be just fine, but if you also did the everyday cosplays in real life I’d love to see them! 🙂 It will be fun to see what other everyday cosplays you put together.

    Oh and very neat blog by the way! New follower for sure!

      Thanks!! 🙂 And I’ll hopefully have a couple real life everyday cosplay outfits from this weekend to share soon! (And I sort of did Link from Legend of Zelda today too. Just missing a hylian shield necklace that I’ve been eyeing for a while…)

  • OOooh! I like that purse! Where is it from?!

      Sadly it’s a Louboutin that’s stupidly expensive… But I’m sure someone made a knock-off.

      • Oh…yeah I’ll look for a knock off LOL!
        It’s so perfect though :'(

          I know! That’s one of the things I really dislike about Polyvore. So many crazy expensive designer stuff in there, it’s hard to make an outfit someone could actually purchase. It’s why mine are all concept boards and I won’t be listing the outfit total costs or anything (unless it’s something I’m actually wearing)… My next one with Batgirl will have very affordable things on it for the real-life picture! 🙂

  • This is great! Very subtle, but wonderful pieces.

  • That’s kind of eerie how much it looks like his outfit but no one would ever know unless they knew…

      I think that’s my favorite part of this. I can totally see people wearing this… and then the look on someone’s face when they realize it’s Viserys. It will be amazing.
