These 'Game Of Thrones' Costumes Are Actually Made From IKEA Rugs

By Aimee Lutkin

Isn't television magical? Every Sunday, we get to watch dragons soar, dead men walk, and rugged warriors traverse the snowy forests in their authentic animal skin uniforms. Unfortunately, the people behind the scenes are here to ruin in.

BuzzFeed reports that in a talk given by Game of Thrones costumer Michele Clapton last year at The Getty Museum in Los Angeles, she completely told everyone how the sausage gets made. It took a whole year for anyone to notice, because it's buried in about an hour and a half of Middle Ages costume-wear chat, but at about minute 27, Clapton explains that the men of the night's watch are all wearing Ikea rugs.
