This cosplay of Daenerys Targaryen from the hit TV and book series 'Game of Thrones' means business when it comes to protecting her dragon eggs.

When it comes to Daenerys Targaryen on 'Game of Thrones,' there's two versions: Khaleesi Daenerys, who eats horse hearts, walks through fire and can't be burned (legit dragon blood, for real), and hatches baby dragons, and then there's the Daenerys who wanders off and loses her dragons, and spends most of the second season yelling, "Where are my dragons?!" like she's got early onset Alzheimer's.

We prefer the former, obviously. And so we really love this cosplay from Canadian Tarah, aka Tarah-Rex on DeviantArt, who takes a few liberties with the accuracy of the costume, but we think it gives her look some additional depth and adds that awesome homemade, rugged feel to the whole ensemble.

And then there's the dragon eggs! Because you can't cosplay as the Mother of Dragons without a few dragon eggs and some fire. Tarah is a serious cosplayer, who painstakingly creates her own costumes and props, and you can check out some of the amazing progress shots on her DeviantArt page.

We've picked some of her best Daenerys cosplay photos for you to check out below:
