GoT: Margaery Tyrell I by Aigue-Marine GoT: Margaery Tyrell I by Aigue-Marine
➡ INTERESTED IN PROGRESS PICTURES, COSTUME PLANS AND COSPLAY SNAPSHOTS? I'M ON FACEBOOK TOO!!!

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.

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! :)
