An in-depth analysis of the costumes of Margaery Tyrell from the HBO series Game of Thrones, *Spoilers* seasons 2-6. The Costumes of Margaery Tyrell was originally uploaded in November of 2016 and was one of my most watched vidoes. I was never happy with the quality of that video so I have recut this version with a new voice-over and additional information.

I've been following you for quite a while now, and its so pleasing to see how the quality of your videos has grown. I can't wait to see what you do in the future! :)

Thanks so much Jenny! I really appreciate your comment!

Thank you so much for going into such detail about the symbolism of these costumes! I always knew they were detailed and symbolic, but you did all the work at analysing them. I appreciate your videos!
Costume CO (3 days ago)
It's my pleasure, TY so much for watching!
malcontentcaro (6 days ago)
love your videos! they give so much details that would be impossible to find on ones own. since michele clapton revealed that sansa‘s dress in the very last episode is made of the same fabric as margeary‘s wedding dress (dyed), i was looking whether the sahco fabric is still available, but i cannot find it anywhere. maybe someone can help me out?
Costume CO (6 days ago)
Hi, thank you for your comment. It looks like this fabric is now sold out. You can try contacting the manufacturer to see if any of their suppliers have any stocks still available.

What I really love about Margaery's costumes is that you can also see Olenna's influence in them too; her Valar Morghulis one for instance is very reminiscent of what her grandmother (and arguably one of the greatest players of the game) wears, though far more revealing lol. I also love that she has thorns around the exposed parts of her midriff too: a 'look but don't touch' effect.

I always loved Margaerys final outfit

Costume CO (1 month ago)
I sort of started this for my own interest, like I wanted to know what was going on in the minds of the designers, and it sort of has lead me into some really fun discoveries. Thank you for commenting!
Aneta B.A (1 month ago)
+Costume CO You're welcome! I tried so many times to make a research and understand costumes better (mainly for inspirational purposes) but it's so hard sometimes to find the right source and understand fully what went through the artists mind...

Thank you so much Aneta!

One of the guys on the now defunct What the Flick? called Margaery in her funnel dress "Taquito Queen". Really, she along with Loras Tyrell and Euron Greyjoy all benefited from "new season" rethinking as they were all misses the first time around.
Mr. Frost (1 month ago)
+Costume CO To clarify, I am perfectly good w/ effeminate gay characters if that's supposed to be the character, but even as someone unfamiliar with the books, it seems clear that when S2 went into production, that the showrunners came to the conclusion that they needed to pull back on his willowy twink look*. More importantly, the wig just looked ratty and cheap to me. I remember the moment I saw the character, my eyes when straight to his head in a bad way. *They may have also received fan complaints, as I now seem to recall some book readers objecting to Loras on the show as the character is apparently more butch in the books. Don't quote me on that.
Costume CO (1 month ago)
Got it! Yes, agreed, his hair was rather effeminate. I prefer his more natural hair too. 😁
Mr. Frost (1 month ago)
+Costume CO I think he only wears that once and I can sort of see why he would wear such overly elaborate and ostentatious armor if he's in a tournament and not actual combat, but I'm thinking more of his wig as part of his costume. The next time we see him, Finn Jones is wearing his natural hair and he just looks and moves completely differently from the top down. He almost comes off like a new character than a returning one.
Costume CO (1 month ago)
Hi Mr. Frost! you mean Loras's tourney armour?

I imagine Margaery's frustration at having to wear that blue dress in late season six. She's got moral (and fashion) police at home and probably had to go along with what they were dictating, though I think she'd pick the fabric herself, because it looks lovely. And I'm glad she got some of her distinctive style back on her final day: I love the Green Trial dress. On the other hand, her fashion phase I'm less fond of overall is Season 5. I understand the rationale behind her wearing Baratheon colours – to show (and rub in Cersei's face) that she's all in tune with her husband – but I think there should have been more green, to symbolise who really holds the power in the couple. Michele Clapton explained that the teal and blue hues from previous seasons were meant to look less threatening than the bold green colour of House Tyrell's sigil, so I think it would have been appropriate for Margaery to incorporate that rich hue once she truly came into power. On a side note, I bought Margaery's rose ring in silver years before the show even came out because it looked lovely. Now that she's become such an inspiration in my aesthetics, I've taken to wear it so often it's actually left a tan line. :D
Costume CO (1 month ago)
Thanks so much for commenting Alex! Excellent points that you make. I think that Clapton decided that Margaery doesn't have anything left to prove now that she (was formally) queen, but I def get what you're saying. You ight have noticed that her grandmother Olenna also moved in the same direction until her family died. PS I also have that ring. I grabbed two actually because I thought they might stop maing them. Glad that you like yours. :)
DominicanStud101 (3 months ago)
Great video! Margaery was my favorite character in Game of Thrones. I believe she and Tommen would have ruled well together.
Costume CO (3 months ago)
Thanks for commenting Dominican!
E. B. Crow (3 months ago)
It seemed to me that when Margaery was married to Renley she knew from the start he preferred men. So instead of trying to seduce him the way she would Joffery (or any other person) , her dresses took on a more masculine form. The outfits widened her shoulders and the burrito dress flattened her chest while giving a stronger look. Not successful by any means, but it starts to show just how ambitious she is.

Thankyou for your fantastically informative videos. With the darkness of the screen, it is sometimes hard to really see the finer details of these incredible gowns. On another note: I’ve just finished watching the awesome HBO series POSE (set in 1987-8) NY, USA burgeoning LGBTQIA scene. Where beautiful TransWomen and TransMen walked competitions, *POSING* , and *VOGUING* (yep, as in, “In Bed With Madonna” Vogue!) in amazing costumes, to win trophies for their “Houses” run by their “Mothers” and “Fathers”. It’s based on true events of the time. I’d love to see your consideration of this show’s costuming! Thanks again. 🐱🇦🇺
Costume CO (6 months ago)
Thanks Kristy! I read this late last night after having a glass of wine, so I likely just misunderstood. 😂 Thank you so much for the kind feedback.
Kitty Maehem (6 months ago)
Costume CO Thankyou for replying so quickly! 🤗 I guess I wasn’t so clear, when I wrote about the dark screens. I didn’t mean your video was dark- I was trying to say that you actually made it a whole lot better to see details that I’ve missed, because my own TV screen is a bit dark! Sorry for the misunderstanding. I realise that you’re very busy, and I’d be just glad if for “fun” you got to have a look at the fashions and costuming in POSE. I just thought it may interest you - no pressure meant at all! Have a lovely day! 🐱🇦🇺
Costume CO (6 months ago)
Hi Kitty, thank you for your feedback. I'd it the background that you find an issue? On more recent videos I have tried to use lighter backgrounds and frame the pictures more. Hopefully that will make the videos easier to view. Also, thank you for your suggestion I will check it out. It sometimes takes me 6 months or more because I often get really behind on shows. Thank you so much for commenting.

that's fascinating: so if i watched the clothes carefully, i'd be able to predict everything - and beat all those boys analysing the battle scenes!
Costume CO (8 months ago)
Maybe, although it's unclear if and when Michele Clapton knew how far in advance things were happening in the story. Dave and Dan could have told her.

Thank you for asking me to consider subscribing as I am normally put-off when other channels basically order me to subscribe. It was just so refreshing to not to have to hear that and love the content you provide so much therefore, I am definitely, 100%, subscribing xx
Costume CO (8 months ago)
Thanks so much Anna! I watch a lot of YouTube and I don't like it either, and I have dropped it altogether, but then I noticed I wasn't getting as many subs. 😁 Thank you for subbing. Have a great day.

HindsightPOV (10 months ago)
I personally think Margaery’s funnel dress was interesting, but done with the wrong fabric and color. If it was done with a solid burgundy color with a wool-like texture instead of the patterned fabric that was used, and maybe if at the top of the shoulders the silhouette curved inwards a little, I think it would’ve worked better. But I can see why some didn’t like that silhouette at all.

Hey I’ve been following you for a while have you watched the Tudors? I’d be really interested in seeing what you think of their costumes.
Costume CO (1 year ago)
Hi Zara! I've seen season 1 and I have planned on doing a video (and have begun to do research) but I have to wrap up some other videos first.
Andrei Ward (1 year ago)
Can we get an analysis for Lucrezia Borgia from the Borgias? As well as Anne Boleyn for the Tudors?
Costume CO (1 year ago)
Hi Andrei! I have a vid planned for the Tudors, but I haven't seen the Borgias yet!
Pastel Pomeranian (1 year ago)
So by the sounds of it, the costume designers knew she was going to "die by wild fire" - hence the blue/green colours?
Costume CO (1 year ago)
Yes, that's excellent foreshadowing. Although, that might be a George RR Martin thing. Did he designate the colours for the families? I'd heard that they used the sigils that George designed.
Melody (1 year ago)
Hahaha when you say "Viewer M" it makes me sound like a James Bond-type entity. I love it! Thank you for the mention. Lovely video, as always!
Costume CO (1 year ago)
Haha! Yes, I love that. You're a woman of mystery!
ANDYofzz (1 year ago)
Woooot, feels good to watch this again! Thank you so much
Costume CO (1 year ago)
I'm glad you liked it. I had wanted to redo it for a while. It's my most popular GOTs video and I thought it deserved an update.

Hi, I love your videos, have you consider make an episode of Vikings the history tv show about Ragnark Lothbroksaga?
Alexandra Kozma (1 month ago)
+Costume CO Oh yes, that would be great! Lagertha is an amazing character, too! Enjoy watching the show!
Costume CO just came from your Penny Dreadful video on Vanessa Ives Amazing by the way! You will love Vikings hopefully it's absolutely amazing! Ragnar Lothbrok is one of the sexiest men alive! LMFAO! Enjoy Vikings because I know once you get through the first couple episodes you're not going to be able to stop watching it!
Alejandra Bautista (1 year ago)
That would be amazing :)
Costume CO (1 year ago)
Thanks Maria! I just started watching Vikings. I have so many shows on the go but hopefully once I'm done I can do a video.

Yup!
Ana Rosa Reyes (1 year ago)
It seems to me that Margaery is more of the sluty kind
Costume CO (1 year ago)
Aahh, thank you so much!
Ana Rosa Reyes (1 year ago)
Love your videos! I feel that most of the time people don't know how to apreciate the work of the costume designer and all the social and historical and psychologicl research that it involves and that is only the begining once the design is planned then is all the time and effort of many people to actually make the costumes while trying to foresee the impression that the finished costumes will make in the audience and many other things along like fitting the costumes to the actors or deal with changes to the original idea that are necessary in the making and si much more! I wish you keep going for a long long time with this inspirational task!
Costume CO (1 year ago)
I think the idea is that she's using her youth and beauty to move ahead.
lestrange (1 year ago)
You should do a video on the costumes of Black Panther!
Costume CO (1 year ago)
Hello lestrange! I have it planned but I still have to get to the theatre to see it!
e batdorf (1 year ago)
Love it and the edits! Ha, I always thought that blowing up the Sept was Cersei out-maneuvering the church, but you are right; she was out-maneuvering the Tyrells, as well. Of course, I loved the little segment on her hair!
Costume CO (1 year ago)
Yes, the Faith as well!

Peglegpeete (1 year ago)
Heidi, Thank you, your timing was perfect last night. I was a bit burned out from watching 2+ hours of fruit [flavor and where they can grow] reviews here on YT and most needed a lot of editing. I am redoing my backyard and am in the middle of deciding what to put there.
Peglegpeete (1 year ago)
oops. there should been an 'and' between lemon zest mango and ice cream bean
Peglegpeete (1 year ago)
Las Vegas. I am looking at tropical varieties and have to find fruits which can handle a day or 2 of cold at the most. Lemon Zest mango Ice Cream Bean are at the top of my list of what I plan to get.
Costume CO (1 year ago)
That's so great! You must have mild weather. It's only 5 degrees here where I live in Canada.
Tatiana Melendez (1 year ago)
Hey, giiiiiiiiirl! Long time no see. Nice to see a classic resurface. Looking at the Margaery's at the end of season 2, I thought the scarf was bronze, not brown. Shows what I know. Also, I've finally finished my research of that play I told you I'm designing and have started drawing. I'm currently painting my fourth costume. I know it doesn't have anything to do with tv shows or movies, but I'd love to have your opinion on them, so can I send them to you?
Tatiana Melendez (1 year ago)
Great! I'll finish the one I'm currently working pin and I'll send them to you. I mean, it's not really a commission for any actual production. It's more of a personal project to beef up my portfolio, but still.
Costume CO (1 year ago)
Well, the scarf I think is sort of a golden brown according to the pictures I have. But in the show its possible that it looked bronze.
Costume CO (1 year ago)
OMG Tatiana, RU kidding? I'd love to see them! I'm so excited for you.
Grace J (1 year ago)
Great video. I was always a fan of Margery and the way her fashion adapted to the situation, even the final ones. The only dresses that didn't work for me though were the funnel dress and both wedding dresses.
Costume CO (1 year ago)
Hi Grace! That's interesting that you don't like both wedding dresses. I think that sometimes Clapton is a bit on the nose with her design, so I can certainly see why yo'd think that.
I love your videos.
Costume CO (1 year ago)
Thank you!
Sritama Sen (1 year ago)
I'm a bit confused. Is this a re-upload?
Costume CO (1 year ago)
I've added a note in the description because I've taken down the old video and as you mentioned it might be confusing for viewers who saw the original.. I hope you find something new here that you might have not known!
Sritama Sen (1 year ago)
Costume CO oh, I see! No, of course I don't mind. I was busy actually, and couldn't watch the whole video; I didn't realise you've made some changes or I wouldn't have asked. My mistake.
Costume CO (1 year ago)
Hi miniofthemalfoys! I haven't called it a re-upload because I actually re-cut the whole video, took out the long intro, added new information about the fabrics and jewelry, etc. Sorry if this is rehashed for you. I promise to have new content coming soon.
andres segui (1 year ago)
I once asked you for this, I LOVE YOU FOR DOING IT.
Costume CO (1 year ago)
I couldn't find anything on her last dress! I tried to find the fabric but it wasn't at any of Clapton's usual shops. It's very likely that April Ferry designed it bu sadly she has done no interviews about any of the costumes that she designed. My favourite of hers is Sansa's turquoise velvet direwolf gown.
andres segui (1 year ago)
Costume CO I did enjoyed it a lot, I wish there was more information about her last dress because it's my favorite but I loved the comparisons between Cersei's dress and Margaery's
Costume CO (1 year ago)
Hi Andres, I'm so glad you did! The older video is one of my most popular uploads. I hope you enjoy this new version.
John Latham (1 year ago)
That funnel dress was crazy for any GOT character. It’s fun to follow her through the costume changes. Great job.
Costume CO (1 year ago)
A Mohawk might work if you're a Wildling.
John Latham (1 year ago)
Costume CO I couldn’t agree more. It would be like wearing a Mohawk.
Costume CO (1 year ago)
Thanks AU! I can see what Clapton was trying to do but it just didn't fit into the GOTs universe.
