Could you imagine a world without Game of Thrones now? Lord of The Rings move over; there’s a new king of medieval fantasy in town! While the show is always a fun spectacle to watch, one character you wouldn’t want to be is any member of the the Night Watch. Freezing your ass off, under constant danger from Winglings and White Walkers, the vow of… ughh celibacy, it doesn’t get much worse.

But for all that pain and suffering they do get to wear some pretty sweet uniforms. Good news though GoT fans, you don’t have to join in to wear one! If you head down to IKEA today you can pick up a $79 SKOLD rug today and wear exactly what the GoT crew wear, that’s what they’ve been wearing this whole time!


Head costume designer Michele Clapton revealed this shocking fact to GoT fans at the Getty Museum in LA last year, stating “These capes are actually IKEA rugs…We take anything we can; we cut and we shave them and then we added strong leather straps. I want the audience to almost smell the costumes.”


With that in mind, it’s time to make our own GoT fans! IKEA have released their own simple instructions to help you get geared up, so read below and get your Night Watch on fam!
