Guys, You Won’t Believe Where Game of Thrones Gets Their Capes From

Ever wondered where the cast of Games of Thrones gets their amazing costumes from? Well, according to Quartz, the guards of the Night’s Watch get their capes from a surprisingly affordable store.

Michele Clapton, a former costume designer of the show, revealed that the capes are actually Ikea rugs. (Yes, you read that right). She went on to explain that in order to give the clothes a medieval feel, the rugs were cut, shaved, and dyed to make them look more realistic. While it’s unclear which Ikea rug was used, we’ve come up with a couple of options in case you want to dress up like one of the characters for Halloween this year.
