Artemis had never heard of Game of Thrones until co-workers and classmates started commenting on her resemblance to Daenerys. She didn't see the resemblance herself until she posted this series of photos on her blog.

The post blew up overnight, with all of the top comments referencing her resemblance to Daenerys. The feedback inspired Artemis to start watching the show, and she quickly became a huge fan of the series.

Now she cosplays as Daenerys at conventions such as Anime Weekend Atlanta and MomoCon.

"I was so so surprised by how many people walked up to me at MomoCon and said that they recognized me from seeing me on their Tumblr dashboard or Reddit," Artemis told BuzzFeed.

Artemis said she will continue to cosplay as Daenerys as long as the show remains relevant. "I've met too many awesome people because of my Dany cosplays to give them up so soon," she added.
