Welcome to Jon Snow Cosplay!

Making a Jon Snow cosplay, and being a cosplayer in general, has easily become my favorite hobby. Developing my Jon Snow costume over the years and cosplaying it to different Comic-Cons allowed me to discover my passion and appreciation for costume design and cosplay.

While I do other cosplays, my Jon Snow cosplay was the first one I made, and continue to improve on it with each convention that comes.

My love for Game of Thrones propelled me to build this and show my appreciation and fandom of not only the character Jon Snow, but of the entire series. Out of all the Game of Thrones costumes, Jon Snow’s costume was not only one of the more challenging one for me but also the most rewarding for me.

Here I will be posting images of my Jon Snow cosplay from the time I first made it to my current iteration of the costume. I also will be making posts of any updates to my costume of Jon Snow.

Photo Pose Tips

If you're looking to get your Jon Snow on as a cosplayer, here are some basic tips in order to get that Jon Snow cosplay look going for those photos at conventions or a photoshoot. Mind you I may have done it a bit too much in that photo to the left (and came out looking a tad foolish) but it still follows some of the general guidelines to getting that sulky Jon Snow look for your photos.

    Get the pout going! Probably the most important thing to try to reenact Jon Snow's sullen look for your photos. As you can see again...I took it a bit far here on my example to the left but you get the idea.
  • check-square-o
    Some eyebrow furl. You want to look like you're confused or concerned about almost everything and anything, kinda like you know nothing...​​​​

    If you're not doing an action shot, a nice blade down, pommel up with two hands on the Longclaw (or your sword prop) pommel makes for a good pose.

Conventions to Attend

There are many great conventions to attend throughout the year scattered all over the world. For this list though I will be concentrating on the conventions in the US. Being in California, we are lucky enough to be able to attend many different conventions, big and small. Here are a few that are on my personal list of wanting to attend.

1. San Diego International Comic-Con - Touted as the year's biggest and best comic-con in the world, San Diego Comic-Con is top of the list especially as a Game of Thrones fan. This is where Game of Thrones and many movie and show reveals are. ​We were finally able to go this year and what an amazing show it was.

2. Wondercon- Ran by the same folks who run San Diego Comic-Con, Wondercon is a smaller convention but with just as big of heart. Normally run in Anaheim, California right by the happiest place on Earth, Disneyland, Wondercon is at times the year's first big name comic-cons and serves as a welcome back almost to the comic-con scene. Very excited to get back to it.

3. Anime Expo- This obviously is a convention that is more geared toward the anime side, but you will definitely see a lot of cosplays from all the different mediums.

4. Stan Lee's Los Angeles Comic-Con- This is the last convention that we usually go to in the year. We are super excited to take our Jon Snow costume and Daenarys Targaryen cosplay back to Los Angeles Comic-Con.
