With winter having arrived, the second season of HBO’s hit series Game of Thrones is only a few short months away. As the new tagline is “Cold Winds Are Rising,” you can rest assured that the royalty will be dressed for frigid temperatures as well as function. That’s where Michele Clapton and Simon Brindle come in. They’re the costume designer and costume armor supervisor respectively and they were tasked with making the outfits in Game of Thrones both realistic and uniquely fashionable. In the case of Renly Baratheon (Gethin Anthony), Clapton had this to say:
“With Renly, it was interesting, because we wanted to do this sort of armor covered in velvet. We wanted to give him some more fullness and stature, but without being too obvious about it.”
