Behind-the-Scenes: ‘Game of Thrones’ Season 4 Costumes [Video]


Costume designer Michele Clapton talks about creating the costumes for The Royal Wedding, The Wedding Crowns, Margery’s Wedding Dress, Brienne’s New Armor, Jaime’s Golden Hand, Oberyn Martell’s costume, and Daenerys’ costume. The featurette also includes commentary from cast members such as Emilia Clarke (Daenerys Targaryen), Gwendoline Christie (Brienne), Jack Gleeson (Joffrey Baratheon), Natalie Dormer (Margaery Tyrell), Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (Jaime Lannister), Lena Headey (Cersei Lannister), Pedro Pascal (Oberyn Martell), and more.

Gwendoline Christie (Brienne), says, “Jaime gives Brienne her equivalent of an amazing dress and a pair of shoes. He gives her a sensational suit of armor and a sword. He’s like given her couture.”

Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (Jaime), “This is one of the golden hands that Cersei has made for him because she’s so disgusted by his stump.” Lena Heady (Cersei), “She just wants to cover it up, but obviously that doesn’t work because it’s a big gold hand.”


Encouraged by the Red Wedding slaughter in the Riverlands that wiped out many of their Stark nemeses, the Lannisters’ hold on the Iron Throne remains intact … but can they survive their own egos, as well as new and ongoing threats from the south, north and east? While an unbowed Stannis Baratheon continues to rebuild his army in Dragonstone, a more immediate danger comes from the south, as Oberyn Martell, the Lannister-loathing “Red Viper of Dorne,” arrives at King’s Landing to attend Joffrey’s wedding to Margaery Tyrell, and perhaps act on an ulterior agenda. In the north, a depleted Night’s Watch seems overmatched against the inexorable Wall advances of Mance Rayder’s army of wildlings, which in turn is being trailed by an even more formidable foe: the undead White Walkers. As if that weren’t enough, Daenerys Targaryen, accompanied by her menacing trio of dragons and army of Unsullied, is poised to liberate Meereen, the largest city in Slaver’s Bay, which could ultimately provide her with enough ships to sail to Westeros and reclaim the Iron Throne.

‘Game of Thrones’ season 4 premieres on April 6th at 9 p.m.
