Costume College Ice cream Social: Game of Thrones


Sorry I've been quiet so long, between end of summer vacations with the family, school starting for one of my boys and a major spring cleaning going on over here I've been a wee bit busy!

Anyway, back to the coco recap - I really love my new Cersei dress, it was comfortable, I was proud of the embroidery and I felt elegant.  Both Katherine and I actually ended up wearing our Game of Thrones dresses all day on Friday.  After all that work it seemed a shame to just wear them for a few hours at the social. We were fortunate enough to have Kendra take a bunch pictures for us outside for a sort of "Kings Landing" photoshoot.

Of course we had to do some silly shots too

I will find a way to kill you!
Hellooo Jamie!
And you'll never guess what the Spider said next!
 There ended up being a pretty big group of Game of Thrones costume at the Ice Cream social which was so fun!  Everyone looked wonderful and it was great to get to pose together.  Sadly I didn't bring my good camera to the social so the only picture I got was this one on my iphone, but there are probably other good ones floating around the web.


I really loved wearing and making this gown, it was probably the costume that most inspired me this year.  The flow and drape of it is so graceful and I was really proud of all the embroidery I did.  Plus it's always fun to ham it up as a villain!

I will definitely be making Cersei's blue bird gown sometime in the near future.

  1. Oh my SQUEEEEE!!! I just totally scared my boys with the yelp I just emitted!! I saw the landing dresses at Coco, but seeing them all together in the pictures really makes quite the impact! I love the ones of you and Katherine together!! So lovely and ethereal, royal and elegant! Very well done!
    Blessings!

  3. That was an amazing group, Loren. Jerry Abuan got a nice shot of you all here. And I think he has a few more not quite so organized.

    1. Hey thanks for the heads up! That's a little more focused than my poor old iphone.

  4. You looked beautiful, the embroidery was amazing. BTW your hair was lovely, remember the beautiful girl on the seat next to the driver that they make get off and leave in the road in "A Room with a View", you looked just like her.
