Good news for Game of Thrones fans who need a Halloween costume on a budget…
In case you didn’t hear, the thrifty and resourceful costume designers of Game of Thrones recently revealed that Jon Snow’s fur cape is actually… an IKEA rug
In a lecture at the Getty Museum, former Game of Thrones costume designer Michael Clapton said, “These capes are actually Ikea rugs. We take anything we can. We cut, and then we shaved them, and then we added strong leather straps…”
It’s most likely the TEJN rug ($14.99), which make this makeshift stole a real steal (sorry)
IKEA would never leave their beloved customers high and dry without instructions (even though I’ve gotten some bookshleves that were missing pieces, ahem), so check out how easy it is:
Just like any IKEA product, the instructions might be a liiiiiittle too simplistic so you’re gonna have to give your cape some more TLC if you want to pass for a man of the Night’s Watch.
If you want to REALLY complete the Jon Snow look, be sure to accessorize with a handsome-but-always-miserably-brooding face
