The costumes on Game of Thrones consistently take it to another level with the sheer amount of detail contained in those pieces. But the cosplayers at second annual Con of Thrones weren’t too far behind.

With so many characters to choose from, Game of Thrones offers a plethora of ideas and concepts for fans to embody. But at the Game of Thrones convention, the cosplayers took their outfits straight to Westeros and Essos—or rather, Dallas.

But sometimes the costumes at a Game of Thrones convention got meta. At one point, someone dressed as George R.R. Martin photographed others dressed as his own creations while another covered in paper handed out blank pages to other con-goers as a commentary on Martin’s unfinished The Winds of Winter.
