What a truly amazing story!
Rabid Game Of Thrones fan Lucy Hinsley overcame a lifetime of constant bullying by connecting with ferocious heroine Daenerys Targaryen from the hit HBO drama!
"I feel like I am Daenerys now - we are so similar. There’s such a connection between us. I used to be a pushover. But Daenerys has taught me not to take any more nonsense from people. She’s my inspiration."
The 22-year-old Brit has turned her idolization for dear Khalessi into a profession of sorts, now impersonating Emilia Clarke's character, with beautifully crafted handmade costumes costing her in the thousands to produce.
Lucy has uniquely captured each one of the Stormborn's looks, including the tattered Dothraki fashion preceding Khal Drogo's death, to her reemergence as the Mother of Dragons!
The cosplay items are so on point — it's scarier than… [SPOILER ALERT]
… Oberyn Martell's scull crushing end!
