The character of the Khaleesi has walked through a firestorm and has emerged stronger on the other side. She is also known as the “Mother of Dragons.”
A Monster High doll was repainted to capture the regality and ferocity of the Khaleesi.
The Funko folks had some fun with this interpretation of Daenerys Targaryen, the Khaleesi.
Fantasy OOAK artist Cheri Hiers has made many flaxen-haired fairies and otherworldly sprites. I hope there might be a “mother” and a “dragon” in her future. If not, any of her white-tressed dolls looks very much like the Thrones character.
The noble Stark Family is at the center of many of the subplots of “Game of Thrones.” Lunas Crafts has this remarkable crocheted version of the family on display on her Etsy shop site.
Nissie, an artist on the DeviantArt site, has this rendering of the epic show’s cast.
The Funko Pop versions of “Game of Thrones” is downright adorable.
Stitchy Button, a seller on Etsy, offered this interpretation of the program.
A fan favorite, and a character who has won numerous awards for his actor, is the “half-man,” Tyrion Lannister.
Many of the female characters are the boldest and the most memorable. One such protagonist is Arya Stark, made by Egads on Etsy.
A whole world of imaginary beasts and critters pepper the epic’s landscape. Here, one is interpreted by Jarahamee.
A cyber game exists keyed into “Game of Thrones.” It’s a dress-up/cyber paper doll forum called Doll Divine.com.
The character of the Khaleesi has walked through a firestorm and has emerged stronger on the other side. She is also known as the “Mother of Dragons.”

On Sunday nights, even on Mother’s Day, I leave behind the mundane matters of being a working mom and a busy blogger. For an hour on the weekend, I’m transported to a world where there is certainly a lot of strife and stress, but it’s of an epic, grandiose nature.

Sure, I might be upset that my kitchen renovation is taking three times longer than I had been led to believe, but what’s that compared to ritual beheadings, avalanches, sword and sorcery, and soaring dragons? My worries seem minuscule when compared to the travails of “Game of Thrones.”

When it first debuted on American cable TV in April 2011, its network—HBO—seemed to be striving for an acronym of “heavenly bodies ogled.” Almost every episode featured prolonged examinations of curvaceous wenches and undressed harlots. It was downright uncomfortable at times to watch the background players having to shed their tunics and their inhibitions.

This season, the third one, the “sex for sex sake” seems to have been curtailed. There’s the occasional glimpse of a bare torso or a minute of lovemaking, but it’s nothing as overt as the first two years.   

“Game of Thrones” has a solid fan base, and as such it is merchandised in all manner of licensed products. However, amid all the T-shirts, posters, replica daggers, and drinking vessels, there are, of course, dolls!

Funko, which excels at taking sci-fi and fantasy-themed characters and making them “cute,” has outdone itself with its Pop version of these royal protagonists. The leading figures, as well as some supporting players, have been given the Funko transformation. The results are adorable, which is something I normally wouldn’t apply to a program that routinely features massacres, battles, and torture. But the Funko folks have managed to turn carnage into cute-age. It’s admirable.

A lot of independent artists have been inspired by the sweeping nature of the show. There are so many different plot lines to follow, and dramatic relationships to delve into. It’s tailor-made for people who love to design and sew.

Looking at Etsy, DeviantArt, and on eBay, I discovered there are many one-of-a-kind artists who have made effigies of these Sunday-night stalwarts. My personal favorite character—and it’s perfect for Mother’s Day, isn’t it?—is the “Mother of Dragons,” known as Daenerys Targaryen, or the Khaleesi. (Lots of characters on the show have alphabetically elongated identities. It takes a village to type one of their names!)

I like her because (A) we’ve seen her grow from a mousy, subservient sister to the “mother of dragons,” (B) she is not afraid to spill blood while pursuing her destiny, (C) she carries herself as if she’s already on the throne, and (D) did I mention she controls dragons????

That’s pretty incredible to my way of thinking. I used to devour all of the Anne McCaffrey “Dragonriders of Pern” series, so I am inclined to like anyone who is able to wrangle a fire-breathing, flying reptile! I used to think that Cesar Millan was impressive with his “dog whisperer” ways. Forget him—this platinum blonde chick is a dragon whisperer!

My good friend Cam and I both get a kick out of the Khaleesi. In fact, Cam, who is trying to cut down on his cussing, has taken to using “Mother of Dragons” as his go-to obscenity. If he accidentally stubs a toe or gets disconnected from customer service—after a 15-minute phone wait—he’ll lustily bellow, “MOTHER OF DRAGONS!” or even “Mother of ALL Dragons!”

The actress, Emilia Clarke, who plays her on the series, is currently on Broadway in the role of Holly Golightly in “Breakfast at Tiffany’s.” We’ve discussed whether we should go see the play or not.

As Cam says, “Unless Holly comes out with a tabby cat in one arm, and a dragon perched on her shoulder, it’s going to be a let-down.”

True, a high-class call girl pales in comparison with a driven, self-directing queen-in-waiting. As the third season rolls on, Cam and I watch the show and then compare notes afterward.

Hopefully, some more OOAK artists will pick up on the vast canvas of potential fantasy-themed creations. There are so many heroes, heroines, villains, jokers, and wild beasts to re-create or be inspired by.

I’ve got my fingers crossed that there will be some “Game of Thrones” BJDs, repaints, and original resins and polymer clay sculpts in the near future. After all, more than 13 million fans can’t be wrong!

I'd LOVE to get a dragon for Mother's Day. They are some of the most beautiful fantasy creatures ever!
