GoT: Margaery Tyrell I by Aigue-Marine GoT: Margaery Tyrell I by Aigue-Marine

Haha, I wonder if this costume feels as much of a disappointment to you as it feels to me. But let's talk about more positive topics first...

About two years ago I fell in love with HBO's TV show Game of Thrones. About one year ago I started reading the A Song of Ice and Fire book series. About half a 6 months ago I decided to cosplay as Daenerys Targaryen and about 5 months ago people commented on pictures of my Daenerys Targaryen costume telling me I had not done well and should better try cosplaying as Margaery Tyrell next time. Luckily House Tyrell happened to become my favourite House in the ASoIaF Universe and Margaery one of my favourite characters... and that's why I decided to give making one of her dresses a try.

When I made the decision to cosplay as Margaery Tyrell, pictures of her beautiful S3 dresses had not been released yet. Otherwise I would have probably gone for one of her newer outfits right away.
I used approx. 7m of fabric for the whole 'Valar Dress' from S2E10 - 6m of light blue cotton for the skirt and the sleeves, 50cm of blue fabric for the top and 50cm for the brown undergarment. Putting the whole outfit together took about a week. I spent 3-4 days of this week embroidering the vest with my sewing machine.

➡ If you're interested in a couple of making-of-pictures I'd recommend you to check the Margaery Tyrell tag on my BLOG.

The most difficult aspects of the costume were constructing the patterns for the undergarment which needed to be very tight and the vest which ended up consisting out of approx. 60 pieces of fabric. The dress itself is very well-made and looks very neat, it's incredibly uncomfortable to wear and very hard to move in it though. Unfortunately I still haven't found a perfect rose necklace to wear with this outfit either.
All in all this costume has taught me a lot about pattern making and fitting, my next Highgarden outfit has to become much better though.

Contrary to many opinions I have to admit that I don't think character suits me very well. This particular outfit of hers is anything but flattering for my bodytype. I hope I'll be able to make a more convincing Margaery Tyrell wearing one of her S3 dresses. I'll wear my S3 dress on Connichi Friday and Ring*Con Saturday and for a special photoshooting in August.

COntinue with your cosplay, it's very cool! =)

First I saw your Daenerys Targaeryen cosplay and thought - omg she has the face of Margaery Tyrell! Then I saw the comments and hurried to your page - nice job as Margaery! Love where you can see how much you look like Margaery, this more than the second, beautiful work :aww:

Hello, your cosplay is so beautiful.
Can I post some photos on my page about Game of Thrones?
Schnatz Featured By Owner Jul 8, 2013
Wow, das sieht toll aus!
Ich denke übrigens auch, dass du rein optisch besser zu Margaery passt als zu Daenerys! Aber so oder so, als ich mich durch deine Gallerie geklickt habe, ist mir aufgefallen, dass du immer wunderschöne, perfekte Kostüme erstellst - und das finde ich bewundernswert! Weiter so, mit mir hast du ab heute einen neuen Follower! :)

I was staring at this photo for several moments before I realized it's not a screen shot of the actual TV show, the work is so good I thought it was the real thing!

Season 3 dresses are the best! And I think that those colors would fit you very well!

OMG! You look like her twin...AMAZING COSPLAY!.
I though for sec in thumbnail, it was shot from the show, until I read cosplay and I WAS NO WAY!

It's too bad you don't like this cosplay, you make such a stunning Margaery!! And I'm not sure why you say it's not flattering for your body type, because you are beautiful from everywhere ! :hug:

That embroidery is super impressive by the way! I can't wait to see the next dress you'll be making :)

Um ehrlich zu sein finde ich Dich als Daenerys UND als Margaery einfach atemberaubend!
Anfangs mochte ich Margaery irgendwie nicht, aber mittlerweile ist sie auch einer meinr liebsten Charaktere.
Du verkörperst sie einfach wunderbar. Red Dir bitte nicht weiter ein, dass Du nicht sooo gut darin aussiehst! Nachdem ich Dich darin jetzt gesehen habe haben es andere Margaery Cosplayer schwer, da ran zu kommen (;

Their costumes are pretty difficult to replicate but give yourself more credit than this. Just because the character physical assets aren't the same as yours or the character doesn't suit you, doesn't mean it's a bad costume. Your a person that looks good in any costume you wear. Your one of the few people that can portray a myriad of characters from different media. Your costume skills are really good. Personally, watching the costumes you make are a sight to see because they're really good so keep it up :thumbsup:

Without reading your comment, I thought it looks comfortable to wear, but does look hard to make. At least in this photo, you posed well as Margaery Tyrell. And this location is pretty cool for this cosplay. <3

The first thing I'd like to say is, I really enjoy how you write so much with your pictures. That's way more interesting than when people say almost nothing, and it's nice to hear your own thoughts about your costumes. I don't actually know Game of Thrones at all, so I don't know this character, but I think you look beautiful and elegant here. I'm not sure exactly in what way you consider the outfit unflattering for your body type. Maybe you can give me a hint? Besides, last time I checked your Miss Martian pics (and also a Catwoman pic), your body type seemed to be 'Fantastic' (yes, that's an actual category =p), so I really don't know what the problem could be. Good photo too, though I wish your toes hadn't got snipped off, as I can't really make out the footwear. However, the 99% of you that I can see looks just lovely - so I'm certainly not disappointed with your latest appearance!

Es ist so ein hübsches Kleid, und auch wenn du sagst das es dir nicht gefällt finde ich das du einfach wundervoll darin aussiehst! :3
Ich bin sehr froh dich darin auf der Animuc gesehen zu haben <3
