Jon Snow and Daenerys
Game of Thrones might be over, but that doesn’t mean it’s forgotten. Renaissance-themed shows and movies are all the rage since Game of Thrones brought them back to popularity, but there are no characters as iconic and Jon Snow and Daenerys Targaryen. The fire and ice couple is an epic costume option for couples who want to go big or go home. From the elaborate cloaks of the Night’s Watch to the elegant white dresses of the Mother of Dragons, these costumes will definitely turn heads.
Since Jon and Dany have had a lot of costumes in the show, you have the freedom to choose the simplest styles to the most elaborate getups. Most people will find ready-made costumes for these two and it is expected to have a lot of doppelgangers in Halloween parties because of their popularity.
