About this Costume
Construction Details:
I based her costume off of book descriptions because I found her series costumes horrendous, but was also mindful of staying in the dark red color range so it didn't look gimmicky. 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 made by me out of numerous red crystals, I wish it photographed better to show detail.
Personal Thoughts:
Having picked up the book series after watching season 1 of the HBO show, I really liked how Melisandre was portrayed in the books, so when some friends invited me to be a part of their GoT group for Dragoncon, I went with her because her color scheme could be easily recognized and I enjoyed her mysterious personality. I was so happy and lucky to be part of such a talented group of friends ♥

Styling Notes
Brushed and teased a little but otherwise right out of the bag gorgeous! Settles a little flat after a few hours of wear, so needs more volume-bases styling for future wear.
