While we've shown cosplays that are accurate to the Game of Thrones TV series, we need to give some attention to cosplayers who love the books and want to create cosplays based off the images they had in their heads while reading.

"His eyes were sunk in deep pits, his close-cropped beard no more than a shadow across his hollow cheeks and bony jawbone." He was balding, his hair "like the shadow of a crown."
"The flesh had gone pudding soft in the water and turned the color of curdled milk. Half her hair was gone and the rest had turned as white and brittle as a crone's. Beneath her ravaged scalp, her face was shredded skin and black blood where she had raked herself with her nails. But her eyes were the most terrible thing."
"Her hair is silver-gold, her eyes are amethysts."
"The northern girl had a wild beauty."
"Her hair was not the orange or strawberry color of common red-haired men, but a deep burnished copper," and "her skin was smooth and white, unblemished, pale as cream. Slender she was, graceful, taller than most knights, with full breasts and narrow waist and a heart-shaped face."
"Thin arched brows above large eyes as black and shiny as pools of coal oil. Only a few streaks of silver marred the lustrous black hair that receded down his brow in a widow's peak as sharply pointed as his noise." Also, his eyes are later described as "viper eyes."
"His eyes were a dark indigo" and he had "silver hair."
