Tormund Giantsbane Costume
Important note for Halloween 2023 – Due to the time that passed since this great show was aired, it is becoming more and more difficult to keep the list of vendors that have those costumes updated. If you reach a “product currently unavailable”, your best chance is to search on Amazon or HalloweenCustomes.
A Tormund Giantsbane costume is not easy to find. In fact, as oppose to Jon Snow costume or Daenerys Targaryen costume where you have plenty of choices to choose from, most chances are that you will need to make your own Tormund outfit. While this might scare people and push them into choosing another Game of Thrones costume, it is actually an advantage. The reason it is an advantage is because it will make your costume even more unique. With the guidance of the steps in this page you will be able to make yourself a great looking Tormund wildling costume whether it is for Halloween or other Game of Thrones party.
Who is Tormund Giantsbane?
Tormund Giantsbane is a member of the free folk, or the wildlings as they are known south of the wall. He is one of the leaders that follows Mance Rayder and name him the King-Beyond-the-Wall. Mance Rayder is killed by Stannis Baratheon and Tormund becomes the actual leader instead. He closely follows Jon Snow and has huge respect for him.
Ever since his character appeared on the screen, he added a lot of “color” to the show (pun intended). He has a very distinctive look, talks funny, brags about his experience with women (and female bears), spill his ale on himself and his beard while he drinks and does all kind of stuff that made us love him.
The character is played by the actor Kristofer Hivju, a Norwegian actor. Both his parents were actors and he appeared in quite a few TV shows and movies in Norway and in the US but he will probably always be knows as Tormund. You will not believe how Tormund Giantsbane looks in real-life.
To start your Tormund Giantsbane DIY costume you have to start with the most noticeable feature which is the ginger hair. Unless you are a natural ginger, you will have to get one of those ginger wigs.
Similar to the ginger wig, you would absolutely have to have the ginger beard. And if you are not natural ginger or even if you do but don't have a beard, this ginger beard is a great option.
