Games of Thrones inspired Baby Dragon Monsters!!!

Last April before the HBO series Game of Thrones debuted we went to some GOT Food Trucks that spent a week in NYC.  You can read about those adventures here, here, and here.

Well, since then in GOT-related news, we watched the show on HBO (I loved it even though I kept having to ask hubby what was going on) and hubby read the newest book in the A Song of Ice and Fire series: A Dance with Dragons. It was a big book but I remember he devoured it quickly and then spent days talking to his brother about it.

(Just last night he was reading ADWD again - "I want to reread the Davos chapters" he said, quickly adding "You haven't met him yet in the TV show." Later, when I mentioned how cold it was getting in the bedroom, he just said "Winter is Coming" followed by "The North doesn't forget." This morning when I noted it was snowing , he commented "I was never sent my white raven." Sometimes I don't know how I put up with him.)

I'll get around to reading the series one day. Right now I am too busy.  But I have not forgotten about Game of Thrones, especially the final scene of the season. I just loved Dany rising out of the ashes with those cute little dragons. It was a beautiful, powerful scene, one of the best of the entire series.

Now, as you all know, some of my favorite creations (they are all my favorites, really) are the WannaBe Dragon Monsters and Baby Dragon Monsters. So inspired was I by that last scene and by the hints hubby gave me about the rest of the story that I decided to make some Baby Dragon Monsters in honor of Daenerys and her Dragons.

I got the color combinations and created them. There is black/red just like Drogon, green/bronze same as Rhaegal, and cream/gold modeled after Viserion.

Here are some photos below or you can visit my Etsy page for more information.

Winter is Coming, or perhaps, more appropriately, Fire and Blood. Enjoy!
