Daenerys Swag

Bonjour, mes petites flocons de neige! (Hello, my little snowflakes)

I hope you're all keeping warm in these wintery months.  If you live in the mid-west, like moi, you're probably cursing this arctic weather we're having.  I wouldn't mind the cold if it didn't make driving so darn difficult.  Every morning I say a prayer that my car will start despite the freezing temperatures.  Does it work?  Not usually, but ah well.  Three cheers for jumper cables!  Hoozah!

In other news, I finally made a FB page for those of you who want to follow only my Cosplay stuff.  Iz right here: ADD MEH ON FB BRAH

So I've had several requests for a few more Dany items, and I'm happy to finally bring them to you:

Yay!  Dany's ring!  I never wanted to make this before 'cause I could never find good shots of it, and I really didn't want to make a replica when I had little knowledge of how it looked.  Finally, I tracked down upclose photos of the ring, and without further ado:

I used a light weight aluminum metal for the ring portion and polymer clay for the top accent part.  I painted it with acrylic paints and added texture.  Then I slopped like literally ten coats of satin finish to it 'cause I was worried it wouldn't be durable enough.  Thankfully, it's been plenty durable.  I've been puttin' this baby through all kinds of wear and it's been holding up better than I expected.   

This ring and more is available in my Etsy shop.  (Link to your right!)

I fell in love with Dany's season 3 sapphire dress, and I really wanted to implement elements of her style into my own daily fashion.  And TADA!  A Dany inspired hooded cowl!  I cannot get enough of cowls, especially ones large enough to wear as a hood.  They look so chic I could squeak.  (WTF, why would that make me squeak?)  Anyways, they're super practical for the chillier months.  I never leave my house without one.    

The cowl is made with 100% acrylic yarn, so it's super soft and warm.  

And it also doubles as a ninja outfit!  HIYA!  (Available in my Etsy shop!)

I notice in GoT's season 4 trailer, Dany is still wearing her statement slave collar.  And I thought I'd share this updated version of my collar.  I really tried to use texture and color to replicate the cast iron look.  How'd I do? : )

Alright, that's all I got for today, loves.  Let me know what kind of tutorials you guys would like to see next!

Au revoir, my little dragons!


  1. Hi! I love all of your Dany items! I was wondering what pattern you used to make the hooded cowl?

    1. Hi Elizabeth!

      I actually just came up with my own pattern. I chained until I got the length I wanted, slip stitch one end of the chain into the other, making a circle, then alternate rows with double crochet and half double crochet. Finish off with a row of single crochet. : )

    2. Hi Nichole!

      Thank you so much for letting me know! I can't wait to try it out. :)

  2. Hi, me again, wow, we have a lot of similar interests! I just did a Daenerys cosplay too and was planning to do the slave dress but didn't have time to make the collar! I will eventually! And you're seriously gorgeous and look so much like the actress I'm kind of jealous! ;) I won't hold it against you. :P I'm going to start being better about writing up my costume stuff as well, it's something I've been bad at, thanks so much for doing this, it's a great resource! Oh, and I also have Etsy stores... yeah... anyway! Take care!

    1. Thank you so much! X ) Yeah, I've been slacking lately too about posting my costume stuff. But yeah, you should def post yours 'cause I know I personally love surfing through blogs to get good tips and advice for my own costumes.

      Oh and send me the link to your Etsy shop! I'd love to rummage through it! :3
