New Game of Thrones costume videos shows new Season 7 character moments
We’re getting a look at a Game of Thrones costume video for Season 7 as well as some new character footage for the show. The video, posted by the official HBO YouTube channel, has costume designer Michele Clapton talking about her journey from working on clothing for herself to becoming the designer for the show. Clapton talks about the Game of Thrones costumes and how they reflect where the characters are in the story and who they are as people. You can check out the video in the player below.
Clapton discusses how much she enjoys working with the four main female characters on the show and what each Game of Thrones costume says about where everyone is in the story so far. She also talks about how everything gives her inspiration, from the history of cities to things she sees during her travels. She keeps everything in a book and uses her inspiration to inform what we see on the cable network series.
At the end of last season, Daenerys’ (Emilia Clarke) dragons and her immense army were finally on the way to Westeros, where Cersei (Lena Headey) has now become Queen after the death of her children. The Night King’s (Vladimir Furdik in season 6) army is heading south, and a battle appears to be imminent.
Though we don’t know exactly what’s coming before the Game of Thrones final season, Maisie Williams, who plays Arya Stark, tweeted this about season 7 last year:
“Just finished reading season 7, s**t gets REAL. I’d start preparing yourselves now… scratch that, nothing will prepare you for this… Holy BALLS.”
