Costumes in G.O.T.

When designing costumes for Game of Thrones, the designers strove for a look that was both familiar and completely new.

According to Emmy winning lead costume designer Michele Clapton, for their initial inspiration the designers "immersed themselves" in museums, paintings and books to get a feel for the styles various cultures, including Persian, Inuit, Mongol Japanese and tribal clothing.

Here are some details for specific locales and characters from the series:

The North - According to Ms Clapton, the North has "the most English medieval look.". The designers envisioned this as being somewhat like the northern part of Scotland. People in the North wear a lot of padding and fur, leather armor. There is no metal armor - it would be impractical to wear metal because of the cold!

The Night Watch - The only "uniform" for The Wall is the color black. Wealthy people who are sent to the Wall bring their clothing with them, others may arrive with nothing but a thin jacket.

The Starks - Murky colors predominate in costumes for the Starks - warm blue and grays, symbolizing their warm relationships. Sansa and Arya started out dressed much alike in knotted tops, but as they have grown their attire has changed to match their contrasting personalities. The late Ned Stark wore clothing that was elegant but practical.

Kings Landing - Being a port city, the residents of Kings Landing trade with other lands, resulting in the availability of silks, brocades and rich colors. You can see a Persian influence in the styles of Kinds Landing.

The Lannisters - Cersi is all about fashion snd style, preferring wrapped silks - medieval with a Japanese touch. She often wears a metal belt. Jamie can always be found wearing an asymmetric leather coat beneath his ornate mailed armor.

Margaery Tyrell - A fashionista like Cersi with a style all her own - and a penchant for skimpy outfits and plunging necklines.

Fashions in Essos and lands surrounding the Summer Sea are influenced by styles of many tribal cultures. Because of the warmer temperatures, clothing is lighter and often sleeveless.

Daenerys - as an exiled princess, her early style is simple and elegant - almost Grecian. She later adopts the leather tribal styles of the Dothraki. Husband Khal Drogo wears Mongolian-inspired leather pants with lots of lacing and belts reminiscent of Roman gladiators.
