Whether you're channeling your inner khaleesi or brandishing the direwolf sigil of House Stark, Halloween is the perfect time to let your GOT fan flag fly. In need of inspiration for Friday? Check out the images below for help crafting the perfect GOT costume.

Joffrey Baratheon

Achieve the king's wedding day look with this advice from costume designer Michele Clapton: "Be opulent and show off" – the more distasteful the better. Earn bonus points by incorporating Joff's wedding gifts: the Valyrian steel sword ("Widow's Wail") or the goblet (below), a gift from Mace Tyrell.

Jaime Lannister

As Lord Commander of the Kingsguard, Jaime wears the iconic white cloak. His armor contains "quite a lot of scalework," explains Simon Brindle who supervised Season 1's costume armor. "King's Landing is a port town, so there's a connection to the sea going on." No Jaime costume would be complete without a golden hand; this one took the production crew a month to create.

Oberyn Martell

To dress Oberyn and his paramour Ellaria Sand, Clapton incorporated "big sashes and belts in burnt oranges, and yellows, and golds." For Tyrion's trial by combat, Oberyn wore armor embellished with a snakeskin texture. The Red Viper's weapons are also evocative of his nickname; the spear blade resembles the tongue of a snake.

Arya Stark

As the youngest Stark girl, you'll need a Braavosi coin (and to practice your High Valyrian, specifically "Valar Morghulis"). Arya's sword, Needle, was sized specifically for actor Maisie Williams. Don't be too upset that you can't wield the real deal … neither does Williams, as she told HBO.com: "I thought no one got to use a normal sword, and then everyone was like, 'I do.' I realized it was just me. No one trusts me with my sword."

Daenerys Targaryen 

Season 3 production designer Gemma Jackson shares her inspiration for cultivating Dany's aesthetic: "I went to India to do a lot of buying for the show and found some exquisite antique weaving and embroidery. The look is glamorous – not blingy at all." Of course there are three crown jewels in every Mhysa ensemble. A mother of dragons wouldn't be complete without her children.
