Missandei of Naath is a awesome character and can be a great Game of Thrones Halloween costume. While she wasn’t one of the main characters, she was definitely high in the rank of the supporting characters as the closest confidant to The Mother of Dragons, Daeanerys Targaryen. Therefore, it is a little surprising it is not that easy to find a good Missandei costume. While there are many options for Cersei Lannister costume, Arya Stark costume and others, Missandie’s costumes are mostly DIY.
She wore several different outfits during the time we saw her. From being a slave and a translator in Astapor, to becoming a close friend to the queen. Some of the outfits were made out of leather, others were made out of fabric. But probably her most memorable outfit was the blue dress. It is not easy to find that Missandei blue dress, but we can show you exactly how to create one yourself with a dress and a necklace you can use in many other occasions. The other main feature of the character is the actual hair of Nathalie Emmanuel. You can get this look with the wig we show below. Other than that there weren’t any accessories, jewelry or other items that made her stand out.

Making her only about 25 years old when she took the role of the salve from Naath. She began her acting career appearing in a Vodafone commercial and since then been very busy. In her resume you can find the role of Nala in the London West End production of The Lion King along with much more famous movies like: Fast and Furious movies (since Furious 7), Maze Runner and now also The Dark Crystal. However for us, she will always be that proud slave from Naath.

This Missandei blue dress is a great look. It worked well on the show for the former slave and it can also work well as Missandei costume for Halloween. In fact, this particular look can work for different occasions as well because it is not too “costumey” or too “medieval” and looks pretty good by all accounts.
Here are the steps you need to follow to aciveve the look of the original picture.
