As you may have already gleaned, I’ve had a bit of a Game of Thrones obsession for a while now. I know, I’m not alone.
I decided Cersei Lannister was the way for me to go this Halloween. Alexi usually will go along, as long as I take care of the costumes, so he became Jaime. Beckett had already decided to be Bumblebee from the Transformers, but I convinced him to be Tyrion, just for our party.
So, to make my costume I started with this pattern from Simplicity.
My friend Lisa and I headed downtown to Michael Levine to look for fabric and I got this blue upholstery weight satin for about $4.50/yard! Thank goodness because the pattern calls for six yards. For the belt I got some lighter weight upholstery fabric, and grabbed some gold trim for details. For Beckett’s doublet (aka vest) I found some silk dupioni on sale and vegan leather (aka pleather).
…and here are the results.
Beckett was VERY into the flask which I let him fill with soda. Yes, yes, I know, authentically, it should have been a wine bag.
Here is Beckett in his Bumblebee costume, just so you know I kept my word. Because a Lannister always pays her debts.
Hope you had a great one!
