First Prize: 6 Winning Ideas for “Game of Thrones” Costumes- Guest Post


Winter is coming, but so is Halloween. And, if you’re like most people, you’re looking for the hottest Game Of Thrones Costumes. Unfortunately, or maybe fortunately for you, a lot of people don’t spend a lot of time dressing up. Here’s what you can do to take your outfit to the next level and win any Halloween costume competition you attend.

Daenerys Targaryen

The Mother of Dragons often wears fine silks, or a v­neck dress, and her hair back in a double-row ponytail thing. The key to pulling off Daenerys is to nail the hairstyle ­ this is her “signature” look. It will take some work, but basically you have to create two sets of plaits and tie them off in the back into a super ponytail. Here’s a guide that helps you pull it off.

Beyond the hair, you’ll want to pay special attention to the makeup ­ you’re going for a pale, but soft, white, almost airbrushed look in the face with a hint of color in the cheeks.

Eddard Stark

Ned Stark is one of the first heroes of the show, and it’s a shame to think that he never made it far. But, you can relive his glory by donning some heavy leather armor, chain mail, and that humongous fur coat that he wore in the north.

Don’t forget the Hand of the King Pin ­ this is essential jewelry that will really set off the costume. Oh, and of course, you’ll need a two­handed sword made of Valyrian steel. Or, you could settle for a replica. Your choice.

Jon Snow

Jon Snow isn’t a major character, at first, but he becomes one of the most important characters in the show. If you want to dress the part, the most important part of the ensemble is the cape. He wears a black cape trimmed with fur at the shoulders. You should also consider growing out your beard and having a lady­friend help you with curling your hair.

Cersei Lannister

Cersei’s character wears regal­looking deep red dresses and always seems to drown in them. Think velvet or silk gowns with full sleeves. You’ll also need a very long wig or long hair that you can divide and pull part of it back into a ponytail.

Sansa Stark

Sansa Stark is actually pretty easy to pull off. All you need is a light­colored dress with long sleeves. Also, the hair. She either wears it down and “flat” or parted and pulled back. You don’t need a lot of makeup, but dye your hair red if you can. Also, give yourself subtle color in your cheeks and try to accentuate your eyes.

Joffrey Baratheon

If you want to be the little tyrant king, all you have to do is act like a brat. But, you’ll also need some armor, a cape, leather booths, and a golden crown. Joffrey had golden locks, so that’ll help too. It helps to have a young face, and not everyone can pull this off. Go for authentic clothing if you can manage it. It’ll cost a bit more than the typical costume, but it’ll be so worth it.

Mom Style: This weeks looks for being on the go

As a Mom, my style has definitely been changing. I have to be able to get ready quickly and I am always looking for pieces that are comfy and still look presentable. Being a stay at home Mom, I am not really going to places that require me to be dressed up anymore. I aim to still look pulled together, even though I am probably just heading to the grocery store or for a long walk. While I was pregnant, leggings became my most favorite wardrobe piece and they still are now that I am a Mom. I was at Aeric/American Eagle recently and found that they have really awesome high quality leggings. Since I wear a ton of leggings, I picked up a half a dozen pairs. Why not have them in ever color? I have been snapping pictures of my looks for my Instagram account daily. I figured why not put them together for a weekly post on: Mom Style. Here is a look at what I was wearing this week:

Clean Eating Can Still Taste Good

Hey guys! As you know, we have been doing the 60 Day PIYO Challenge. Part of that is a clean eating style food plan. Now that we are in week 6, we have really nailed this clean eating thing. We actually have started to enjoy it and have figured out how to make meals that we still enjoy. Ok, going salt free has been really hard and we will be adding salt back in once the 60 days are up. Other than that, we have decided to really try to keep up with the way our daily diet looks right now. For example this is what I ate today:


  • Coffee
  • Oatmeal
  • Raspberries


  • Banana
  • Almonds


  • 3 oz of Bison
  • Celery Root Mash


  • Apple
  • Tsp Cashew Butter
  • Non Fat Latte


  • Asparagus
  • Corn
  • Salmon Filet

The best part is that I am not starving like I thought I would be. I actually feel more satisfied than I used to. I have always been a calorie counter and as long as I stayed under my calories I was happy. With that I would ultimately eat less food so that I could indulge in some higher calorie items. If I can get my husband on board with this food plan, I am sure you could too. Here are images of some of the yummy things that I have enjoyed on this plan on the last week:
