Michele Clapton, the “Game of Thrones” costume designer, admits she uses items from the IKEA to complete the look on the series.
The fur that Jon Snow and the Night Watch wear is actually IKEA rugs. After buying the carpets, the “GoT” team cuts, shaves, dyes and wears the rugs in so they looked suitably worn. As Michele puts it, "I want the audience to almost smell the costumes."
Whatever she's doing is working. Michele is up for three Emmys for her work on "Game of Thrones."
