Cersei Lannister: 10 Famous TV Moms: Costume Ideas

Cersei Lannister, played by Lena Headey, is wife of late King Robert Baratheon in the award-winning HBO drama series Game of Thrones.

Her children are Myrcella,Tommen and King Joffrey Baratheon.

Though she was married to the king and her children have the surname Baratheon, in fact their biological father is her twin brother, Jaime Lannister. Cersei, who is Queen Regent, is Tywin Lannister’s only daughter.

House Lannister is one of the seven noble families and one of the wealthiest. Its sigil is a golden lion on a field of crimson and its words are “Hear me Roar!” Cersei has some gowns in shades of gold and crimson and choosing a costume in these colors would be a good choice.

You might also like to emulate her armor. She’s worn armor over a gown, breastplate-inspired, in at least one episode. An armour dress could work. Cersei is beautiful with long flowing gold hair which she may wear in different styles. Some refer to her as the Evil Queen.

The Renaissance Maiden Costume is just one of the gowns you'll find in the right style. It is available in the Lannister colors of crimson and gold. This costume even includes a headpiece similar to one we've seen Cersei wear on the show. It gets high marks from customers.

Some say it runs small and you may want to get a size larger than usual. This was even worn at a medieval wedding, so remember we can wear costumes more than once.

The burgundy and gold Medieval Renaissance Gown is available in many sizes and colors. Do you also think of Lord of the Rings? Check other Renaissance costumes to see what suits you.

If you want to emulate the armored look, there are many ways to do it. Try a corset over a flowing red dress.

The Gypsy Renaissance Chemise Top Medieval Peasant Costume Dress (left) has butterfly sleeves and "won't bulk up under corset or bodice." It can be worn on or off the shoulder. A similar look with a peasant-type top and skirt would also work with a corset. Medieval costumes may be in line with your vision. A medieval dress is pure Cersei.

Corsets: For a look similar to her gold armor, try the Brown Leather Overbust Corset Bustier. Or maybe the Brown Vintage Halfbust Shaper Corset.

A gold or silver look could be cool, too.These colors can symbolize armor.

The Mythic Goddess Adult Wig has good reviews and could work well. "Long, lush, blonde curls are haloed by a braid at the crown."

Some other popular and iconic women's costumes have come out recently.They're worth mentioning here.

The Joan Of Arc Premier Adult Costume (right) might make Cersei happy! It's had high marks from customers already. Accessories such as jewelry, shoes and sword you get to pick yourself since they're sold separately.

The Snow White and The Huntsman Snow White in Armor Costume just one of the costumes from the film. It may be able to still be found in Tween size. The film's costumes are already are on clearance or sold out out in many online and brick and mortar costume shops.

For a little wicked queen jewelry, try the silver Queen Ravenna Finger Cuffs also from Snow White and the Huntsman, Charlize Theron.

If your BFF is looking for a costume that's not from TGOT, there's the She-Ra Adult Costume from Masters Of The Universe.

If Lord Eddard Stark, Warden of the North and Lord of Winterfell wants to go to the same party, there are some costumes for him. The new Medieval King's Cape (left) is new. Try it along with the Medieval Mercenary Adult Men's Costume. The Game of Thrones cast makes terrific and varied costumes.
