Oh, HBO! Why do you tease us?
All we want is a good, solid look at the upcoming seventh season of Game of Thrones. It’s bad enough that you’re making us wait a few extra months this year, but the lack of anything more than a teaser for the show is leaving us with serious Westeros withdrawals.
As if to add to our pain, HBO has now released a series of videos showing all the coolest Game of Thrones characters (and a few duff ones, but they’re up for you to decide on), all wearing swanky new outfits!
The costume team seem to have really outdone themselves this year, if these new costumes are anything to judge by. There’s certainly a more military feel to plenty of these designs – especially Daenerys, who’s rocking a very formal battle uniform rather than the decidedly more revealing outfits that won her a place in many fanboys’ hearts.
All of these designs feed into the popular theory that many of the inhabitants of Westeros are going to spend this season readying themselves for an oncoming all-out war. This is further evidenced by the angry shouts that the characters are making (although this is the result of being told to emulate the HBO show’s theme).
Whatever’s on the horizon, one thing is certain.
Tailors in Westeros are about to have a fantastic business year.
