33 Ways to Be a Game of Thrones Man For Halloween
Whether you think it's been done to death or not, Game of Thrones is still one of the best places to look for some Halloween inspiration. There are so many options that it may be hard to figure out who you want to be, so we've cut the selection in half for you. Here are all the men of Game of Thrones that you could be this year — including the dearly departed.
- What to wear: Head-to-toe robes with the Faith of the Seven's symbol carved into your head. (Just kidding, use makeup.)
- How to act: Like you've dedicated your entire life to serving your God(s).
Thoros of Myr
- What to wear: Brown, dirty clothes. You'll need to start growing out your scruff now, and your hair will need to be long enough to tie into a high bun.
- How to act: You are a wanderer and would die for your brothers. You're also a red priest, but you don't just do magic for anyone.
Brynden Tully aka the Blackfish
- What to wear: You'll need some pretty sophisticated armor to pull this off. Don't forget your chain mail underneath; you get into a lot of battles. Add some salt-and-pepper hair and you're there.
- How to act: Like you're the master of your own domain, the king of the castle.
- What to wear: Lots of old, dirty fur, shoddily tied together. Dust some fake snow on to get that lived-in look. You could get prosthetics for your face, or you could just tie your hair back.
- How to act: Like if someone sets foot into your territory, you'll literally step on them.
- What to wear: Dark robes, a cape, and armor with some cloth tied around your eye. Seriously, you could just use a headband.
- How to act: Like you're tired of dying and being resurrected all the damn time.
- What to wear: Lots of furs, plus a sword, and a wild beard and untamed hair.
- How to act: Like you're meant to be in the wild, but you're slightly domesticated.
- What to wear: A big, fuzzy fur jacket over your dark-colored battle gear and boots. Wear a black curly wig, and carry a sword.
- How to act: Brave and gallant but intimidated by women.
Jon Snow, Just After Resurrection
- What to wear: Nothing but a loincloth and the pallor of a man who's been dead for a few days.
- How to act: Um, like you just woke up from being dead for a few days. You know, excited, but also kind of disillusioned by the nothingness? Like that.
- What to wear: Wear your hair long with some short facial hair, plus lots of brown leather as armor.
- How to act: Gallant, but like a total badass.
- What to wear: A burgundy-hued long-sleeved shirt and vest and black pants and boots. Make sure to add the scar.
- How to act: Keep up a stream of witty one-liners.
The Night's King
- What to wear: Dark blue face makeup with horns on your head and dark, plain-looking armor.
- How to act: Never speak, but do look very menacing. Raise your hands like you're raising an undead army.
- What to wear: A leather coat with a red shirt underneath and a slick new haircut. Carry a sword, and paint one of your hands gold.
- How to act: Like a cocky but sometimes sensitive soldier.
- What to wear: A big fur and a long wig. You need a friend to dress as Hodor, so he can give you a piggyback ride.
- How to act: Roll your eyes back in your head every once in a while, then tell everyone where you just warged.
- What to wear: A big, dark sweater and scarf. Wear a white wig and leather backpack, with a child-size doll attached to the back.
- How to act: Protective and stoic, and only say the word "Hodor."
- What to wear: A hooded robe with a belt worn low around your (stuffed) waist and a bald cap.
- How to act: Sneaky. Talk to people like you're giving them juicy secrets.
- What to wear: A long-sleeved shirt with a brown leather vest over it.
- How to act: Like you are just the worst of the worst.
- What to wear: Joffrey needs a long, ostentatious coat, a sword or a bow, and a golden crown that looks like antlers. If you want to be Choking Joffrey, start clutching your throat and a goblet.
- How to act: Just be the rudest person at the party.
- What to wear: Fake armor and dark-colored clothing.
- How to act: Unsure about yourself ever since you lost an important part of yourself.
- What to wear: Fake armor and dark-colored clothing with a fake fur jacket. Wield a toy sword.
- How to act: Like you just can't wait to be king.
- What to wear: A long-sleeved tunic with short hair and a little mustache. Carry around a book and hold it in front of you.
- How to act: Like you can't be trusted.
- What to wear: A dark, long-sleeved shirt and pants with leather gloves and a cape slung around your front. Wear a fake grayish beard.
- How to act: Like a real man's man.
A White Walker
- What to wear: A skeleton-print set of pajamas. Paint your face white and wear a white wig, and carry a toy sword.
- How to act: Don't say a thing, but glare at people menacingly.
- What to wear: A dark, buttoned-up shirt with leather sleeves and a Hand of the King pin.
- How to act: Like a total jerk.
- What to wear: A suit of armor with long hair. Do facial makeup to emulate a burn scar.
- How to act: Big, tough, and very rough around the edges.
- What to wear: A long, hooded gray robe with a rope belt. Bring extra face masks so you can change faces periodically.
- How to act: Never use the second person; instead refer to people as "a girl" or "a boy." Ex.: "A girl dresses up for Halloween."
The Mountain (Zombie Edition)
- What to wear: Unless the person reading this is Shaq, we're going to go ahead and assume you're not 9 feet tall, so don't worry about your size. This costume is a little tough, though, considering the undead Gregor Clegane rocks a full suit of golden armor. You can always wear a gold, long-sleeved shirt and pants and then just buy a helmet if you want to keep things simple. Just make sure you make any visible skin look like the gray, rotting flesh of a corpse.
- How to act: Totally silent and totally terrifying.
The High Sparrow
- What to wear: Honestly, you could just cut holes in the side of a large potato sack for your arms, and you'd have something akin to the High Sparrow's raggedy dress. If you don't have a potato sack lying around (understandable), just throw on your baggiest, drabbest light-colored clothes, and get yourself a white wig. Go barefoot if possible, and feel free to carry a book around with the Faith of the Seven's seven-pointed star carved into it (or better yet, ask your friend to wear a black robe, paint the symbol on their forehead, and follow you around all night).
- How to act: Cocky and self-assured.
- What to wear: Rock a short brown wig with a black turtleneck, a black coat, a leather belt (or some kind of fabric to tie around your waist), black pants, and boots. Don't forget Olly's favorite accessories, either: a knife and a SNEERING, BACKSTABBING GRIN.
- How to act: Like a flaming turd. Scream "FOR THE WATCH!" at anyone who walks by.
- What to wear: A short blond wig with a suit buttoned up to your chin — you'll probably have to invest in one from a Halloween store. Complete the look with a crown.
- How to act: Like you're on the edge. (Get it?) Your mother is going mad, your kingdom is disintegrating, and you are losing all hope.
- What to wear: Very raggedy furs and other various warm layers. Rickon's been out on the run for a long time, so make sure to get that moppy hair and add dirt to your face.
- How to act: Like you're scared for your life.
Young Ned Stark
- What to wear: Make your fake armor a little more old-school, and if you can, get that luscious long hair going too.
- How to act: Brave and determined, like someone else's life is on the line and you're the only one who can save them.
Benjen "Cold Hands" Stark
- What to wear: A cozy black fur ensemble with your hair or wig pulled halfway back. Wear some bluish face makeup to look semidead and very cold.
- How to act: Strong, quiet, and mysterious.
- What to wear: Much like the other Stark men, Ned wears heavy-duty armor and fur and wields a magnificent sword. Set him apart with the long, half-up hairdo.
- How to act: You're the patriarch of the family, so be strong and brave and try to take care of everyone else.
