I'm trying to figure out how to make the undershirt that a few of the Starks wear, but have no idea how to even start. There's so much fabric around the neck, but it's not bulky at all underneath the rest of the clothes.

I hate that thing. On Eddard, it looks like a woman's blouse. Like they took a piece of elastic and bunched the neckline around it. For mine, to make it tolerable in heat, I'm just making a sort of dickie. Once I get the gambeson done, the costume should be ready to rock.

That thing is almost certainly based on a partlet, which is to say yeah, it's a dickie. It's probably nothing more than a rectangle of fabric gathered on a drawstring or ribbon around the neck and pinned, tied, or something similar under the arms to keep it in place under the outer garments. The gap is usually in the front but I think Catelyn Stark's is in the back most of the time.

(Been working on one myself, good luck with yours.)

EDIT: Also dagmarus, you're going to make a rad Eddard. Once you're done, can you mail me your head so I can do this shit up right?

Hello, first time cosplayer going as Daenerys! Just ordered my wig and I can't wait to get started on my costume (well kinda...I can't sew much so we'll see how it goes lol). I figured one of her Dothraki outfits would be best since they are supposed to look kind of raggedy haha.

I finished up my Cersei costume over the weekend! I'll share photos once I wear it at C2E2--complete with armor.

But it turned out well and despite not having any embroidery skills, I think my Lannister lion panels on the skirt of the dress turned out very well simply by doing embroidery painting. I can't wait to wear it!

I bought some red flats with gold capped toes to wear with mine. Cersei's gown goes to the floor and generally covers her shoes, as does mine. But I assume she would wear a shoe the same color as her dress that is closed-toe with a slight heel.

Poking through this thread and looking at all the awesome costumes !

I'm trying to pick a character / costume from Game of Thrones right now and I'm not getting very far. I This is the first time I've ever really had to compromise on feeling like I don't really resemble any of the characters (yes, I know I've been spoiled. I'm just having a serious case of first world problems right now).

I also have to decide on a budget as that will help narrow things down too.

Sorry for this post. I have to talk at someone or something about this. It's like indigestion.

technically purple can be a "natural" eye color. It is in fact a genetic mutation of some sort. Elizabeth Taylor did in fact have lavender colored eyes.

Hey everyone, newbie here. So I found a Daenerys costume that I want REALLY badly but I can't sew worth a damn. It's her costume that was in last nights episode while she was in Slavers Bay. Her blue dress with the pants and the cape. I don't know what fabrics they used and even if i were to attempt to make it, it would turn out crappy and last maybe a day. Any help with patterns and whatnot would be much appreciated!!!!!

I still need to make that weird bunchy undershirt before Friday at c2e2. The next step is to talk to my mother-in-law who is AMAZING at quilting to help me make that gambeson. It's just WAY beyond my skill level. Then, I'll be done with Ned...until I decide I want to make the cloak...which, realistically will be immediately.

Good luck, man! You can doooo it! My Cersei is all done, Ali's Shae is done (she posted a preview on facebook if you saw..), and my friend's Margaery is all done. Another one of my friends has a secret GoT costume, so I am all shifty-eyed..lol. Anyway, I can't wait for a snark-off with you!

Ooooh, why hello lovelies. Decided to wander in here, since I hope to make either an Arya or Dany costume in the semi-near future... Once I actually decide between them. I'm also in the boat of not particularly resembling anyone. >_<
