Madonna dresses as Khaleesi for Jewish holiday

Madonna treats holidays like she treats her concerts and will accept nothing less than over-the-top.

For the Jewish holiday Purim on Saturday, Madge dressed up in full "Game of Thrones" regalia as Daenerys Targaryen, the Mother of Dragons who's one of the contenders for the Iron Throne.

Like Emilia Clarke's character in the series, Madonna was outfitted with long platinum blonde locks, a fierce V-neck gown and baby dragons perched on each shoulder.

"Happy Purim!!!!! All Hail All Queens!," Madonna captioned the image. Purim commemorates the Jews' escape from extermination in Persia, and is the one time of year when many religious Jews will get drunk, wear costumes and masks, and generally engage in revelry. Model Bar Refaeli, for example, honored the holiday in a yellow tiger costume.

Madonna's Purim celebration was also apparently multi-faith: the singer posted a photo of herself in costume with someone wearing a Jesus mask, captioning the image, "Ive got a friend in Jesus! #revolutionoflove."
