Daemon Targaryen from House of the Dragon

In House of the Dragon, Prince Daemon Targaryen (Matt Smith) is brother to King Viserys I. He’s equally skilled as a dragonrider — mounting the dragon Caraxes — and as a warrior — wielding the Valerian steel sword Dark Sister. He’s also gifted in the art of instigation. He later weds his niece, Queen Rhaenyra (Just Targaryen Things). Easily convert this Daemon costume to Aemond’s by adding an eye patch.

Juan Sánchez-Villalobos Ramírez from Highlander

Juan Sánchez-Villalobos Ramírez (played by Sean Connery) is an immortal being in the film Highlander who seeks out Connor MacLeod, known as the Highlander, after his first death in order to teach him the ways of the Game.  Juan’s original name was Tak Ne, but by the time he meets Connor, his style has changed significantly since his life in Egypt.  As with most historical costumes, putting Juan’s outfit together can get a little pricey, so you’ll need to decide if and when you’re willing to compromise.  A close match to Juan’s red and gold uniform might be worth the money if you want it to look authentic.  However, you can get close with an embroidered jacket and red pants.  Likewise, unless you’re willing to make a peacock feather cloak of your own, it’s unlikely you’ll find one.  But a green cape with a matching feather collar will come close, and you can add some additional feathers to it if you’d like with a little glue.  Don’t forget Juan’s signature sword, a katana forged by the father of his third wife with a white ivory handle.
