A friend who does competitive trivia gaming asked me to construct a Brienne of Tarth costume for her to wear in the championship game. I had only about a week and a half to put it all together in the midst of life stuff, so it was a quick but epic build consisting of craft foam (which was bright blue, because Michaels was completely out of grey and black and I didn't have time to order it,) fabric, paint, glue, canvas belt by the yard and some suede scraps, and my good friend Duck tape. She bought the Oathkeeper sword to go along with it.
It turned out pretty good, considering the time and budget crunch! To see it all in action, you can check out the championship episode HERE.
