GoT Costume Designer, Michele Clapton, Leaving Show

-No particular reason for her departure. But she's glad she at least hit most of the geographic points of Westeros. "It was really important to me, knowing that I was going to leave, to actually design the costumes for each [geographic] area so it’s complete."

- Dany also still wears pants underneath her gowns. "I still always put trousers underneath because in her psyche anything might go wrong and [she's always thinking], 'I might need to run away,'" Clapton says. "Even with the longest, most beautiful gowns, Dany always wears a pair of boots and trousers. I like that sense of, 'I can play this [queen] but underneath, I can run.'"

-On Sansa's necklace: "The necklace was based on the idea that Arya had Needle. At the end of the necklace there’s a point, a spike, which is like Sansa’s smaller version of Needle. It’s a jewelry idea of Needle. She’s finally taking them on"

-On Sansa's wedding dress: "It’s Sansa trying to respect everyone that’s been before her[...]I wanted to incorporate pieces that represented her family." The feather collar represents the fur pieces that her brothers and father used to wear. The shape of the dress was inspired by her mother as well as the fish clasps. The shape was also engineered to look a bit like the statues in the crypt at Winterfell. Clapton also estimates that the infamous weddning night scene probably took 3 or 4 takes and that the dress was sewn with cotton thread so that it could be ripped easily.

-The assless dress that the prostitue cosplaying as Dany wears was made because Clapton wanted to shock D&D.

-Designed Mycrella's dresses to be like wispy clouds that look like they could fall off with the tug of a string.

-Says she fucking hated the nipples that originally appeared on the Sand Snakes' breastplates, and that was more of the armorer's fault. No mention about it still being boob armor.
