I know, I know, you’re mad, right? No apologies–I’ve been busy, and last weekend was my first weekend at home in something like five weeks, and I just wanted to sit on the couch and watch football, so I did, and it was fantastic. And now I’m finally going to get to wrapping up the 2012 Dragon*Con recaps, starting with a Game of Thrones photoshoot in which I participated on Sunday.
Sunday morning I woke up, dressed in Melisandre (check out this post where I give GIANT THANKS to the lovely and talented women who made this costume a reality), and traipsed over to the Hilton lobby to meet up with some other fantastic Game of Thrones costumers. Look at all those colorful people! This was a bunch of us assembled at the Hilton around noon to get the shoot started.
Oh wait, you want a close-up?
I am angry because you can sort of see my real hair from this angle, blergh.
Check out this girl’s amazing Quaithe costume:
Priestesses of Asshai!
I know you can’t tell, but all the nametags on this guy had variations of “MY NAME IS REEK” or “RHYMES WITH MEEK” and other things referring to Reek and A Dance with Dragons…so I won’t keep going because, spoilers!
And then we wandered outside the Hilton and I ran into the lovely Mary, who was quite fetchingly dressed as Morgana! Loved her costume.
So I somehow got pulled into a smaller Game of Thrones photoshoot with a professional(?) photographer (I think they’d lost their Melisandre and they needed another one), and that shoot sidetracked the Marriott for a bit:
Ghost came too.
Then we went outside to The Cigarette Courtyard where the photographer made me ruin my dress (not really, but in my head I was all: “BUT THIS IS AN ALAIA.”)
