The furniture giant IKEA tells us how to turn their rugs into capes!
With a budget of 10 million dollars per episode, “Game of Thrones” is arguably the most expensive television show on air right now. Indeed, each episode is like a mini-movie that has fans glued to the television each Sunday night. With literally millions of fans, it just might be the most watched show in the world.
Recently, costume designer Michele Clapton revealed that the Game of Thrones wardrobe department used $79.00 rugs from IKEA to make the capes actors wore on the show. She said, “These capes are actually IKEA rugs. We take anything we can; we cut and we shave them…I want the audience to almost smell the costumes.”
In response to this revelation, IKEA has released instructions on how YOU can make your own “Game of Thrones” cape using their throw rugs! So if you’ve always wanted to become a member of the Night’s Watch, this is your time to shine! IKEA has a simple list of instructions that is done in their “easy-to-follow” format.
And there are so many faux fur rugs for you to choose from! IKEA has many that look just like real fur, but are made from acrylic and polyester! They are still super cozy and will keep you warm. We love the TEJN plush, white rug that looks just like real fur! And the FARDRUP rug that is soft, heather gray! These are so fabulous we’d wear our capes out each day!
