How to Dress Like Sansa Stark’s Alayne Stone from Game of Thrones
Sansa Stark used to dream of the day that she would be a grown, proper lady whose knight in shining armor would appear and life would be one happy and long “ever after”…Too bad she was born into the Game of Thrones world. This young and naive Sansa is forced to transform into a ruthless and determined survivor who has learned how to manipulate a situation to her advantage. In one of the more recent seasons, Sansa dresses up and pretends to be a black-garbed woman named Alayne Stone to flee Winterfell and save her life.
Alayne Stone (Sansa) has a dark and gothic style. She wears a long black dress with a low cut in the front and wears a specific necklace with a thick black circle. Her once red hair is dyed black. In some scenes she accents her outfit with a shimmery black feather cape. She wears dark shoes that are mostly covered up by the dress.
Items You’ll Need to Complete the Costume:
- Black Wig
- Long Black Dress
- Long Black Cape/Feather Cape
- Sansa Dark Necklace
- Black Shoes

How to Dress Like Sansa Stark as Alayne Stone
To fool people into thinking she is Alayne Stone, Sansa dyes her hair black. This is something you could do or you could buy a black wig. She wears her hair in a low ponytail and doesn’t wear noticeable makeup; she looks very pale.
Look for a long black dress at a department store or a thrift store. The upper bodice of hers is textured a bit differently, so if you found something with velvet at the top or something of that sort, that would work very nicely. It also has a very deep neckline, so if you want the most options, you could shop online.
The dress should also have long sleeves. You could also substitute a long sleeve black shirt under a sleeveless dress if that works better for you. On top of the dress, Sansa sometimes wears a black fathery cape that ties at the front. This could be purchased online, or you can try to make your own like this:
Cut out an rounded “U” shape of black felt, hot glue layers of black feathers on, and hot glue a piece of black ribbon on the right and left sides so that it can be tied. If you don’t want to worry about the feathered cape you can look for a long, black cape with a hood at a costume store or online.
Sansa’s necklace is very unique and perhaps symbolic. It is made out of a wide gold chain and clasps onto a large black circle right under her neck, then one long strand of the chain dangles with a thick-needle-like pendulum weight. You could recreate this with a long chain from a thrift store necklace and some other supplies, or you can buy a replica online. Hobby Lobby or Michaels sells jewelry-making supplies if you are interested.
Sansa’s shoes are not very visible because they are hidden by her long dress. You can decide to wear long black boots or another dark pair of functional flat shoe out of your closet.
