|Daenerys Targaryen Mother of Dragons|
She is called “The Mother of Dragons” because she brought dragons back from extinction. She came upon some dragon eggs and she nurtured them until finally three baby dragons were hatched.
The little dragons were adorable, but as they grew, there was some adolescent rebellion. However, that phase has ended, and they are now her devoted protectors. There are three magnificent dragons that are hers to command.
I have always loved dragons.
Halloween gave me my chance to be Daenerys. I found what I needed on amazon.
First, I needed a blond wig. I don’t have the right coloring for blonde hair, so it’s not the best look for me. But Daenerys is blond and I wanted to recreate her look.
Next was the dress. I found one on amazon, but I decided to create my own using clothing I already owned. I had a long, flowing, floor length item that replicated the look. I put a cinch belt around my waist and added some gladiator-style sandals that wrapped around the ankle and up the leg.
Lastly I needed a dragon. I found it on amazon. I could have bought one to sit on my shoulder, but I fell in love with a beautiful dragon statuette meant for collectors. (After Halloween, I added it to my dragon collection.) I took a belt that I had that was made with metal rings and wore it as a necklace. Then I used wire to attach the dragon to the rings so that it looked like the dragon was sitting on my shoulder.
