A Guide To Dressing As Missandei For Halloween

Missandei is the woman at the right hand of Daenerys Targaryen, and she's one of Game of Thrones' most popular characters. She also showcases some of the show's best looks.

Before she became Khaleesi's interpreter, Missandei was a slave suffering in obscurity on Slaver's Bay. She quickly won GoT fans over with her frankness and kindness. Missandei is stern and logical, serving as a perfect foil to Daenerys, who is prone to rash, risky movies. While the Mother of Dragons indeed liberated the slaves, she didn't know how to rule them. Missandei helped her navigate the new culture she's leading.

This look has a few staples — chokers, earth tones, and long dresses in particular. Her looks are simple and understated. When put together, her choices are a pretty unique style for the HBO show. With a halter dress and simple sandals, a perfect Missandei Halloween costume could be in the back of your closet.

Flowy, Ethereal Dresses

The priority in dressing like Missandei is to slip on some kind of long dress with a breezy vibe. Stay away from busy patterns or lace accents: Missandei usually sticks to sleeveless cotton dresses in muted (but flattering) earth tones.

If this is a look you're into, and are on the hunt for an exact match, Etsy has you covered. FleurDeLysCouture has a replica dress for $86.33.

Crop Top & Skirt Combos

When she's not wearing flowing dresses, Missandei shows a little skin with a two-piece look. Pair a floor-length skirt with a crop top that crisscrosses. There are a lot of ways to do this, but keep in mind the desert Missandei calls home: long sleeves and/or fussy fabrics wouldn't work for her lifestyle.

Curly Hair

Missandei doesn't just have curly hair, she has beautiful natural coils. Rock your teeny weeny afro, or sleep in Bantu knots to nail a curly hair-twist out.

If your hair doesn't have a super tight curl pattern, big loose curls will do.

Metal Accents

Missandei was a slave before Daenerys Targaryen sailed to Slaver's Bay and led a liberation. Even though she works with Khaleesi voluntarily, Missandei's style still incorporates metal collars and chokers.

Halter Collar

A halter collar is essential for any Missandei look. The interpreter wears plenty of them throughout her time as Khaleesi's confidant. You can find them in dress versions, or wear a cropped top with a skirt.

Stick to earthy tones and cotton fabrics, and let your collarbones slay.
