Just like everyone else who watches Game Of Thrones, I too wish I could be a member of the Night’s Watch. But looking the part can be a lot easier than anticipated. You see not too long ago the truth was revealed by head costume designer Michele Clapton at a talk at the Getty Museum in LA last year. “These capes are actually IKEA rugs,” She said. “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.”
And right on cue, IKEA confirmed Clapton’s acquisitions and even released instructions on how to make your very own faux fur cape.
