Forget about the previews…
The Lion and the Rose.
It’s a good day to repost old cosplay pictures, isn’t it?
Uh. No. To be honest I haven’t. I took a look at the refernces. The skirt of the gown she wears at Sansa’s wedding looks the way I made my skirt.
I like working according to reference. :)

It’s a lace front wig. It was expensive, yes. I paid around 80$ for it.
It’s a simple blue cotton fabric I bought at a fabric market near the place I live. Really, it’s nothing special.
A “Thank you” and “Please” wouldn’t hurt, don’t you think? ;)

Hey! Thanks a lot for your message! :) First of all, it’s amazing to hear that you decided to engage in cosplay! It’s a great and creative hobby!
Now on to the - let’s say - bad news. Reading your post I assume that you are a total beginner and that you have never worked with a sewing machine before. In case that you are a total newbie to sewing and cosplay I’d recommend you to pick another costume with an easier patterns and easier shapes, like a kimono for example.
Margaery’s dresses were some of the most challenging costumes I ever made. I know, especially the season 3 dress looks really simple, but it took me almost 3 days to come up with a pattern which fit me well and looked the part.
I really don’t want to keep you from cosplaying your favourite character, but try to learn the basics first and try to keep Margaery in mind as a “Dream Costume” for later, when you have gathered some experience. That’s my advice for you. :)
I wear no bra underneath my Margaery costumes. Whoops.
I don’t think the actresses wear anything underneath these dresses either.
