Now, now, we can't all be Jon Snow -- Game of Thrones's recently crowned King in the North, despite his bastard background and the fact that, errr, well, you watch this show, right? -- but we can dress like him. As Thrillist reported last week, the flowing black Night's Watch cloak Snow wore for most of the show's seven seasons, impressive and woolly warm though it may be, is just a good old-fashioned IKEA rug, according to the HBO show's costume designer Michele Clapton.
Now, IKEA has followed up on last week's write-ups about the costuming hack with a hack of its own. The food-obsessed furniture company has explained just how to convert the product in question, a sheepskin rug called the "Skold," into the iconic Game of Thrones garment. It even released one of its trademark instruction manuals for the modification, which the company fittingly calls "Vinter."
