About Game of Thrones

“When you play the Game of Thrones, you win or you die.” Most people know Game of Thrones from the popular HBO series, but the true fans have read the series of books from which it was based - A Song of Ice and Fire by George R. R. Martin. The eight-season series follows a variety of families as they fight for the Iron Throne: the Baratheons, who rule the Seven Kingdoms of Westeros at the start of the series; the Targaryens, who were ousted by the Baratheons and are determined to reclaim the throne; the Starks, who rule the north; and the Lannisters, who are closely connected to the Baratheons. Throughout the series, viewers are introduced to new characters and families as they, too, battle for power.


Game of Thrones Costumes

The four primary families in Game of Thrones all hail from different parts of Westeros and dress in very different ways. Winterfell in the north is cold, with a severe winter on the way (a popular saying from the show is, after all, “winter is coming”). As such, the Starks and citizens of Winterfell dress in long, heavy costumes with fur stoles and capes to keep them warm. Though the entire Stark family is featured heavily throughout the series, one of their most noteworthy members is Jon Snow. Jon is often seen wearing layered dark clothing, armor and heavy fur capes. In the early seasons, when he resides at Winterfell and later at the Wall as a member of the Night’s Watch, his black curls are worn loose. However, later in the series, as Jon takes on more of a leadership role, he pulls his hair back into a low bun and sheds his cloaks as he travels to warmer climates.

Game of Thrones Accessories

Because there are so many different kinds of characters in Game of Thrones, it is easy to put together the perfect costume for whichever house you support. House Stark costumes may consist of dark, faux-leather armor and faux-fur capes; royal Baratheons and Lannisters might wear traditional medieval dress and crowns; knights like Jaime and Brienne tend to don suits of armor and carry swords; and Targaryens wear Grecian-inspired dresses (don’t forget a fake dragon to perch on your shoulder) and long, white wigs. Game of Thrones is a bloody, battle-filled business, so accessories like swords, axes and armor are your friends. Wigs are a must for anybody set on embodying Daenerys especially, and White Walker masks put a perfect finishing touch on your wight ensemble. Putting together your Game of Thrones look is easy with a little help from our wide array of costumes and accessories.

Game of Thones: Television Series

At the beginning of the series, we are introduced to the family of House Stark: Eddard “Ned” Stark, Warden of the North; his wife, Catelyn; their children Robb, Sansa, Rickon, Brandon and Arya; and Neds illegitimate son, Jon Snow (“Snow” being the given surname for illegitimate children). The Starks live at Castle Winterfell in northern Westeros; north of them lies the Wall, manned by the ancient Nights Watch. The Nights Watch guards the Wall and prevents Wildlings and mystical White Walkers - who live north of the Wall - from traveling south into Westeros.

 

Meanwhile, Neds longtime friend, Robert Baratheon, sits on the Iron Throne in Kings Landing. He rules alongside Queen Cersei, born of House Lannister. Together, they have three children whose true parentage comes into question as the series goes on. Early in the first season, King Robert, Queen Cersei, Cerseis twin brother Jaime, their younger brother Tyrion (known as the Imp) and a royal entourage travel to Winterfell, where Robert proposes that his son, Joffrey, marry Neds daughter Sansa and unite the two families. Tensions among the Starks, Baratheons and Lannisters rise, setting the scene for the rest of the series.


Across the narrow sea in Essos, Viserys Targaryen - son of “Mad King” Aerys II Targaryen, who was murdered by Jaime Lannister (also known as the Kingslayer) so that Robert Baratheon could take the throne - joins forces with Dothraki Khal Drogo. Drogo marries Viseryssister Daenerys, and Drogo promises the Targaryens an army so that they can reclaim the Iron Throne.

Game of Thrones Characters

Jon Snow

The four primary families in Game of Thrones all hail from different parts of Westeros and dress in very different ways. Winterfell in the north is cold, with a severe winter on the way (a popular saying from the show is, after all, “winter is coming”). As such, the Starks and citizens of Winterfell dress in long, heavy costumes with fur stoles and capes to keep them warm. Though the entire Stark family is featured heavily throughout the series, one of their most noteworthy members is Jon Snow. Jon is often seen wearing layered dark clothing, armor and heavy fur capes. In the early seasons, when he resides at Winterfell and later at the Wall as a member of the Nights Watch, his black curls are worn loose. However, later in the series, as Jon takes on more of a leadership role, he pulls his hair back into a low bun and sheds his cloaks as he travels to warmer climates.


Sansa

Jon is particularly close to who he is led to believe is his half-sister, Sansa. Sansas alabaster skin is complemented by her fiery red hair, a trait she received from her mother Catelyn. Sansa is initially excited to be betrothed to Joffrey, son of King Robert Baratheon and Cersei Lannister. As a young girl, Sansa is seen wearing pretty dresses and her hair in elaborate braids. As the series goes on and Sansa is exposed to trials and tribulations, she grows up and is seen wearing her hair long and straight. This choice of costuming is common in Game of Thrones; as characters evolve, so too do their costumes, hair and makeup.


Daenerys Targaryen

Another character whose appearance evolves over time is Daenerys Targaryen. When we first meet her, Daenerys is sold into marriage by her brother Viserys to Khal Drogo, leader of the Dothraki. The Dothraki are a tribal nation of horse riders who live in arid climates, and we often see Daenerys in more revealing costumes with her long, white hair in simple waves. As Daenerys grows more confident and seeks the Iron Throne for herself, we see her look change: she begins to wear elaborate coats and apparel that make it easy to ride dragons, with her fair hair in elaborate braids, much like Sansa Starks.


Cersei Lannister

Cersei Lannisters look also changes throughout the series, though not necessarily for the better. She does, however, look regal, both as the wife of King Robert Baratheon and as the Queen of Westeros herself. Cersei is known for wearing floor-sweeping dresses with long bell sleeves and intricate detailing. Early in the series, she wears her long, strawberry blonde hair in loose waves; later in the series, she dons a pixie cut underneath her crown. Like the other female characters in Game of Thrones, as Cersei becomes more of a leader, her appearance changes.


Jaime Lannister

Cerseis relationship with her twin brother, Jaime, also changes throughout the series. Jaime Lannister, a knight in the kings army, killed the “Mad King” Aerys II Targaryen so that Cerseis husband Robert Baratheon could take the throne. Henceforth, Jaime is also known as the Kingslayer. Jaime is often seen wearing knights armor and a red cape; later in the series, he loses his right hand and it is replaced with a bronze prosthesis. Jaime and Cersei have an unnatural relationship, which we discover early in the series; however, Jaime later becomes infatuated with Brienne of Tarth, a knight in everything but name. Brienne has sworn to protect Catelyn Starks daughters, but because she is a woman, she cannot be knighted. Brienne, who stands at over 6 feet tall, wears her blonde hair short and is almost always seen in metal armor, carrying a sword.


White Walkers

Other key fixtures of the series are the mythical White Walkers, who are thought to have been extinct. However, in the first episode of season one, a member of the Nights Watch survives an attack by one of these creatures, which are known for their zombie-like appearance and ice-blue eyes. People and animals killed by the White Walkers are reanimated as the undead wights, which are nearly impossible to kill, except by means of fire, Valyrian steel or dragonglass.
