Now, cosplay is one of those things that can very much go one of two ways. As a rule, it's either absolutely fantastic, or magnificently terrible. There's not a whole lot of in-between.

When thinking about Game of Thrones-themed cosplay costumes, though, it is - for whatever reason - a whole lot easier to imagine terrible Daenerys and Jon Snow knock offs than genuinely awesome approximations of the real thing. Maybe it's because the costumes themselves aren't all that outlandish, that anything less than awesome just comes across as a little lackluster.

In this case, though? Get ready for something absolutely awesome:

No, that's not the actual George R.R. Martin hanging around on the GoT set - Redditor Wheeliejuice posted this image a few days ago, with the attached comment:

"A friend of mine does cosplay as Robert Baratheon...He ran into another cosplayer today. I think they both nailed it."

Well, let's take a look, shall we...

Yup. Totally nailed it. Nicely played, Matt Seguin...

And don't even get me started on the guy playing George R.R. Martin...

That's just downright spooky...


What do you guys think? Think those costumes are awesome?
