“It’s not easy being drunk all the time. Everyone would do it if it were easy”
– Tyrion Lannister
One of the most popular characters on Game of Thrones and with good reason. He’s clever, he’s got style. He’s got a way with the ladies and he knows how to have a good time. But he’s also faced obstacles in his life. His family hates him. Everyone else ridicules him. But he takes it in stride because he knows what he is and yet he also knows that they underestimate him.
“Never forget what you are. The rest of the world will not. Wear it like armor, and it can never be used to hurt you.” And now you can wear this Tyrion Lannister costume and let the party know what you are. The coolest player in the room.

Yet another one of Tyrion’s doublets. Note the rings on his fingers as well as the medieval “ring belt” (not to be confused with the finger jewelry.

Tyrion Lannister Costume
With Tyrion Lannister being one of the most popular characters on the show you’d think it would be easy but it wasn’t. This was actually a tough one. We searched Halloween spots, we combed the smaller cosplay costume makers but nothing made specifically like Tyrion’s outfit. The closest we found was from a guy on eBay who had a one going for $350, which isn’t outrageous compared to some cosplay sellers, but it’s very rare that they’re available, so we had to improvise.
Season 2 Episode 03
“What is Dead May Never Die”
Tyrion tests the loyalty of the small council by telling them each a different story involving the marrying off of Cersei‘s daughter Marcella. In the end it’s clear who the rat is by which version of the story gets back to him.

Game of Thrones Replica: Catspaw Assassin Dagger
So by looking at the picture you can probably tell that this is not a toy, if you can’t… this is not a toy! But since we also like to feature Game of Thrones replicas here, we wanted to post this nice little item.
If you remember in season 1, the Catspaw Assassin (as he was credited in the show) attempts to kill a bedridden Bran Stark who was healing from being pushed out of the tower window. He did not succeed and after some detective work Catelyn comes to find out from Petyr “Littlefinger” Baelish that it was Tyrion Lannister’s dagger. Or so he claimed. Baelish explains that he lost it in a bet to Tyrion, after the Imp bet against in brother in a tournament.
In the books, a captive Jaime Lannister later points out the flaw in that story while being interrogated by Lady Catelyn. Tyrion couldn’t have won it in that bet because he never actually bet against his brother. They don’t go into this on the show, perhaps to keep it mysterious, but it’s still a cool little prop to have if you’re a collector.
