Game of Thrones
“I will take what is mine with fire and blood.”
“Lannister, Targaryen, Baratheon, Stark, Tyrell – they’re all just spokes on a wheel. This one’s on top, then that one’s on top, and on and on it spins, crushing those on the ground. I’m not going to stop the wheel. I’m going to break the wheel.”
“I am the dragon’s daughter, and I swear to you that those who would harm you will die screaming.”
“Our fathers were evil men. All of us here. They left the world worse than they found it. We’re not going to do that. We’re going to leave the world better than we found it.”
“I have been sold like a broodmare. I’ve been chained and betrayed, raped and defiled. Do you know what kept me standing through all those years in exile? Faith. Not in any gods, not in myths and legends, in myself. In Daenerys Targaryen.”
Daenerys Targaryen is a fictional character in George R. R. Martin’s „A Song of Ice and Fire“ series of novels, as well as the television adaptation, Game of Thrones.
In the story, Daenerys is a young woman in her early teens living in Essos. Knowing no other life than one of exile, she remains dependent on her abusive older brother, Viserys. She is forced to marry Dothraki horselord Khal Drogo in exchange for an army for Viserys, who is to return to Westeros and recapture the Iron Throne. Her brother loses the ability to control her as Daenerys finds herself adapting to life with the khalasar and emerges as strong, confident and courageous. She becomes the heir of the Targaryen dynasty after her brother’s murder and plans to reclaim the Iron Throne herself, seeing it as her birthright. A pregnant Daenerys loses her husband and child, but soon helps hatch three dragons from their eggs, which regard her as their mother, providing her with a tactical advantage and prestige. Over time, she struggles to maintain control of her dragons. She also acquires an army with which she conquers the cities of Yunkai, Astapor and Meereen, determined to end slavery and injustice there. Despite her strong moral compass, she is capable of dealing ruthlessly with her enemies, particularly the slave masters. She establishes herself as a powerful and relentless ruler.
Since the first second I saw Daenerys in the series Game of Thrones I fell in love with her. )I wanted to cosplay her since a long time and when I heard that the Iron Throne will come to the Fantasy Basel 2019 I knew I had to finally cosplay her. Sadly the Iron Throne didn’t arrive and my costume neither but I was able to lend it from a friend. I still need to take proper pictures of the whole cosplay but Seelenfang took some nice picture at the convention.
