The Gladstone Hotel is known for going all out and decking out in our super specific, completely immersive, expertly themed Halloween parties. This year, like many of you, we got really into the new season of Game of Thrones. It was hard to see it come to an end, so we decided to plan our own little reunion of the Seven Kingdoms in none other than Queen Westeros at the Dragonstone Hotel on Oct 27th.
Even though deep down we all want to be the Queen of Dragons, we don’t all have that perfect shade of blonde hair and fabulous wardrobe or wildly animated eyebrows. The white walkers would be chill* too, but we’re not all good at looking cold and dead.
So here are a 6 quick and easy GOT-themed costumes:
Jon Snow, or any of the handsome people from the North
Even the wardrobe stylists in the actual show admit to cheaping out on costumes with Ikea-hacks. So Ikea went ahead and made instructions for the rest of us!
Shame Couples Costume
Sexy nuns are overrated, it’s all about the sadistic nun in GOT—the only person to actually cause Cersei Lannister physical pain (head bowing).
Jaqen H’gar (the Faceless Man)
Don’t want to dress up? Go in your regular clothes and tell people you’re the Faceless Man that taught Arya Stark how to be a bad bitch. Don’t forget to carry a foreign coin to prove your identity.
The 3 Eyed Raven
Much easier to be the raven in Bran’s dreams, not the actual Three-Eyed Raven who is half-man, half-tree. Just add a third eye in the middle of your forehead and whisper “you will fly” to people all night.
Hodor + Bran
So what if you’re not 8 ft. tall, that’s where the cereal box comes in for perspective.
Stannis + Melisandre’s Shadow Baby
Look good in black? Just cover yourself head to toe and creep up behind people all night without saying a word. What?
