Game of Thrones is one of the most expensive TV shows of all times. Each episode costs an estimated $10 million. To make sure we don't have to miss out on epic battles and special effects, they're cutting down on other aspects. Jon Snow's cape is one of them. Ned Stark's bastard son and the rest of the Night's Watch wear dark, shaggy capes to protect them from wind and weather.
Michele Clapton, lead costume designer of the series, has now revealed that what looks like shaggy fur is really just an Ikea rug. She explained:«These capes are actually IKEA rugs. It's a bit of a truth. We take anything we can».
The rugs were cut, waxed and frosted to create a more authentic, worn-in look. Of course, we sell these kinds of rugs, too. If you're not pretending to be Jon Snow, try placing the rug on a chair. It looks rather pretty and is very comfortable, too.
