What's This?

This post has nothing to do with food. It has to do with my obsession with A Song of Ice and Fire. If you have not read ASOIAF, get to it. George R.R. Martin may be the best writer of our time and each day that you have not read this series is a day wasted.

This past Sunday (GOT day), I decided to hit up the HBO store. I knew they had recently put up some costumes and paraphernalia from the show. I hit up the Standard hotel for food (review will probably be written right after this post) and headed back uptown for the store.

The first thing I saw upon walking in was Cersei’s green bird dress. The craftsmanship  on this piece was gorgeous. If HBO was smart, they’d sell copies at the store. I’ll be hitting up Etsy soon for my Halloween garb.

Melisandre was next. Her outfit was nothing spectacular, but her neck piece was impressive. On the show, this is the only character where I’m not in love with the casting…I guess we’ll have to see what happens as the season develops.

Renly’s outfit was my favorite. It is armor, covered in velvet. Luxurious yet practical!

Jon stood next to Danny. The details were incredible. Jon even had an underskirt to keep out the snow and cold.

Danny’s Dothraki costume was coarse, felt primitive, and did not look comfortable in the least.  Also at the store were:

Viserion, Rhaegal and Drogon

Eddard Stak’s Head

Robert Baratheon’s Crown

If you are just getting into the books, Westeros is a great source. Just watch for spoilers. If you want to learn more about the author, check out his website.

And if you’re wondering where my loyalties are: “Hear Me Roar!”
