! Here's what she said about how it all came together...
"Mae Zhorre Ador!!
That's Dothraki for 'my own damn chair.' lol not really-really it's 'My own chair'
That is what this shoot was, I went to shoot maleficent on this set but how could I pass up a chance to bring along a Daenerys costume to a shoot with a dragon throne! So in my head that's what I was saying. Iron Throne? Screw it! I've got my own damn chair! So this is the 'My Own Damn Chair.' I don't know if anyone else finds humor in this but I find endless humor in it.
I only started to watch Game of Thrones about 4 months ago. I was not planning to do a costume shoot of Daenerys, if I had too choose the one that would have been my most likely, it would have been Sansa, I relate to her more than the other characters-not recently-from early on-her inner strength. Although every time I take a which GOT character are you quiz I get Daenerys. I am certainly not that strong.
So I commissioned a Dany dress from the show.
Which turned out to be a disaster.
However, I had the stunning wig with me at the shoot and The Charming Violet did for me which was AMAZING. She did such a beautiful wig for me that I couldn't skip it. I wanted to shoot for her. I couldn't let this one go to waste.
So Mandy, my photographer, has pin up costumes in another room, and found this white dress, from there she found the leather collar. We put it together and we made it happen. We made something that looked like Daenerys could wear, and ended up with stunning photos. Some people know how insane I am for perfection and accuracy of a costume when I shoot in it, but we made this in 15 minutes out of what was there, so while no it isn't up to my 'standard' of 'exact replica' I look at these photos and I don't see that at all. I see how amazing and creative Mandy is that she on the spot created a costume to fit the character, the amazing make up job she did on me which lead to me being blonde in a photo and looking good for the first time ever, her sets are amazing, and the photos I got from this are just spectacular in my opinion...and Mandy....I would have been lost without her-I would have been lost in this world of costume photos without her.
The Charming Violet and Mandy both put in SO much work, together all of the elements captured the character...the only thing left for me to do was to try and capture some of her expressions. My favorite photo is the sitting down one, where I am looking down."
