No discussion of Game of Thrones would be complete without a discussion of the “whores.” From Tyrion’s love, Shae, to the wily King’s Landings ladies, the prostitutes are big plot movers (gratuitous nudity notwithstanding).
How do you dress a medieval fantasy prostitute? Same way as you dress everyone else, but with a slight twist. In King’s Landing, for example, they wear similar costumes to the hand maidens–the difference is that they come off much more strategically. “[Just like] you see with contemporary prostitutes,” Clapton said. “They wear something similar to someone going out for the night–it’s just what they do with it and how they wear it.”
A word about merkins: Yes they use them, but Alexander and his hair team aren’t involved–that falls under the purview of the makeup department. Why?? Isn’t it hair? I hope they make sure the carpets are matching Alexander’s very elaborate drapes.
Speaking of hair *ahem* how did Arya’s boy chop go?
