Have you been bitten by the Game of Thrones bug? It took me two seasons before I decided to jump in, but then I binged on both seasons over a very lazy weekend. I was like Fred and Carrie and Battlestar Galactica on Portlandia. Thank goodness there weren’t more episodes available, or I would have lost my job and all sense of personal hygiene.
As a big chair fanatic, I have to wonder why everyone wants this very uncomfortable chair made out of swords so badly. It certainly does not look childproof or tetanus proof or impale your buttocks-proof. However, the sets and locations on the show are absolutely mind-blowing, and always make me wonder just how expensive each episode is to produce. Here’s a look at some high GoT style.
Uninviting man caves. The men of the Night’s Watch live at the edge, an edge provided by one heck of a wall in the very chilly north.
Forts. Even the strongest fortifications will not protect slave owners from dragons.
Family pride through design. Your house’s crest is of the utmost importance. People respect and fear houses represented by lions and direwolves much more than ones represented by a golden rose. Something to keep in mind if you’re designing a family crest.
