Asoiaf: Melisandre of Asshai by Green-Makakas Asoiaf: Melisandre of Asshai by Green-Makakas

Asoiaf: Fire Priestess by Green-Makakas Asoiaf: Lady Stoneheart SPOILER by Green-Makakas


Where should I begin... :D

I really, really loved Melisandre in the last book! She was gorgeous, so we both me and my friend decided to sew this cosplay. We waited for the design of the second Game of Thrones season since we were unsure if we should do it on or own or just to take the recognizable dress. The second season's dress was very simple, so we have sewn our own version :)

For those who don't know the material: Melisandre is a priestess of Fire God R'Hllor. She is quite a seductive and manipulative woman with abilities of clairvoyance.

I don't suppose I could get a quick rundown of the lighting setup used for this photo? I'm...pretty sure I know what it is, but the lighting is just...gorgeous and so perfect and mindblowing, I'd love to attempt something like this in the future!

Hi! First, we're so glad you liked it, thank you! To be honest I'm not so sure what you mean ^^' This was a completely dark photo. I've just turned long enough on curves, levels and gamma settings to make it brighter and then it was the normal procedure with all the colour settings. There is no special light here, I'm really sorry to say that! :*D

Actually, I always prefer replicas of the costumes in the show, but I like this version of the red woman more. God job and really nice picture! (:

Thank you so much! It's the same for me, I normally like the "canon" interpretations more, but since the dress looked very boring to me in the series, I thought that I will stick top the "book canon" here :D
