Madonna shows off Mother of Dragons costume

Monday March 17, 2014

Queen of pop Madonna shared a series of pictures on her Instagram account over the weekend, as she celebrated the traditional Jewish holiday of Purim.

The 55-year-old star dressed up as the Mother of Dragons, Daenerys Targaryen from the HBO series Game of Thrones.

“Happy Purim!!!!! All Hail All Queens! ##certainty,” was the caption accompanying the photo she shared of herself wearing a leather corset, arm bands and a small dragon on each shoulder.

The carnival-like Jewish holiday Purim commemorates the salvation of the Jewish people in the ancient Persian Empire, and it seems Madonna – whose Hebrew name is Esther – had thought deeply about her choice of character.

Always being open about her faith in the Jewish teachings of Kabbalah, the star was certainly familiar with the story of Purim, which tells how a gorgeous Jewish orphan named Esther was chosen to be the queen of the Persian Empire.

The frequent Instagram user shared several photos showing off her costume. In one photo, she posed next to a friend wearing a Jesus mask. “Ive got a friend in Jesus! #revolutionoflove,” she captioned the photo.
