IKEA Releases Instructions How To Make Your Own ‘GoT’ Cape After Costumer Reveals Actors Wore IKEA Rugs
While serving in the Night’s Watch, Jon Snow had to vow to celibacy. Poor guy. And the imminent threat of White Walkers? His time in the North was no picnic. At least he had a pretty cool cape to compensate for it. But did you know that you don’t need to drag yourself all the way to the wall to get one? A shorter trip to IKEA will do. Turns out, you can get a rug there for $79 and look just as badass as the Brothers.
“These capes are actually IKEA rugs,” Game Of Thrones head costume designer Michele Clapton revealed at a talk at the Getty Museum in LA. “We take anything we can; we cut and we shave them and then we added strong leather straps. I want the audience to almost smell the costumes.” If you want to make an exact copy, you’re in luck because IKEA have published easy-to-follow instructions how to do just that, and it’s a lot easier than assembling a bed.
