Khal Drogo Costume – shorts: thrifted // belts: Randy River // wig: Wal-Mart
As soon as we found out we were pregnant, and that we were due at the beginning of November, we’ve been trying to think of a really good Halloween costume to wear to our friends Halloween themed wedding social. We went through and vetoed ideas like cheerleader/coach, Juno/Paulie, nun/priest(??), or even housewife/milk man. We thought that if we could find a lot of examples of these on Pinterest, that means they are probably overdone. We wanted something more original than that!!
So when I was reading Game of Thrones and got to the part where Daenarys was eating the stallion heart to ensure the birth of a boy, I suggested the idea to my husband and he was all over it! On the show, she was a lot less pregnant than I am now, but I figured that the idea would still come across.
I already had this dress, and since it was so short due to my belly, I wore a pair of brown leggings underneath. I found the metal necklace at H&M, and I bought the fake blood at the dollar store. I was lucky in that I already had a little heart shaped purse that I could use as my stallion heart prop. It was fun to be able to carry it around :)
For Khal Drogo, I bought a pair of brown pants from the thrift store, and Andrew cut them up. He already had the belts, and we used the blue paint from his Tobias costume to make the markings on his chest. We seem to pick costumes that don’t require him to have a shirt pretty often, so he was totally ok with that. He put some shoe polish in his beard to make it darker, and (later) put some eyeliner on. I took some bells and braided them into a wig that I found at Wal-Mart and then braided the whole thing together (many bells = many victories).
The social was really fun, and I’m glad we were able to dress up like characters from my husband’s favourite book series this year. I’m really excited to see what kind of costumes we can come up with next year, when we have a one year old!!
What are you dressing up as for Halloween?
