The Night is Dark and Full of Terrors by etaru The Night is Dark and Full of Terrors by etaru
First preview of one of my 5 new costumes from this past Dragoncon: Melisandre from A Song of Ice and Fire (Game of Thrones HBO series) by George R. R. Martin.

I based her costume off of book descriptions because I found her series costumes horrendous.
The entire costume was patterned by me and made in about three days, so while I like it despite being a bit of a rush job, I plan on redoing the skirt panels. The bodice was done out of varying interfaced panels of dupioni silk and velvet, with the sleeves, cloak and cowl out of taffeta and lined with organza. The necklace was was made by me out of numerous red crystals, I wish it photographed better to show detail.
The wig is a Matilda lace front from Arda Wigs because I'm obsessed with how lovely their lace fronts are!

Really? It was Friday afternoon, but admittedly we ran around a lot getting food and stuff so I wasn't in it very long.

This is beautiful, it goes well above and beyond the show's interpretation of Melisandre.

Thank you very much, I was hoping for more with their interpretation given how well most the other characters were cast.
