Game of Thrones” is filled with violence and drama. However, among the highlights that make the HBO sci-fi TV series a hit are its characters and their colorful and impressive costumes. You might not notice it, but there are stories behind the ensemble that Cersei (Lena Headey), Daenerys (Emilia Clarke), Jon Snow (Kit Harrington) and the rest of the characters wear in the show.

'Game of Thrones' costumes are well-thought

A number of fans might not notice the costumes that the “GoT” characters wear in the series, but the production spends thousands of dollars and hours in crafting the ensemble for such a high-budgeted series, Quartz reported.

In fact, Michele Clapton is the costume designer of the dresses and gowns that your favorite characters sported on the show. She exerted effort to elaborate the embroidery, show the intricate details and make every dress believable.

However, that’s not all because part of every costume's distinct look is the narrative and psychology of your favorite "Game of Thrones" characters. There is a subtle layer in Cersei, Daenerys and Jon Snow’s ensemble that most viewers missed.

The story behind the ensemble of the 'Game of Thrones' characters

Did you notice that Cersei's look changed radically following her son, Tommen's suicide? Headey’s character used to wear long gowns in the early days, then she switched into black mourning clothes following Tommen's death and eventually into a leather suit that looked familiar, right?

It's actually similar to the one her father, Tywin, the patriarch of the Lannister wore. Cersei cut her hair short while wearing her new ensemble, which suggests that she is assuming her father's role as the powerful and merciless leader of the Lannisters.

Aside from Cersei, Daenerys Targaryen is among the characters whose costume evolved over time.

Clarke's character in "Game of Thrones" was complex. She used to be a refugee then became a mother of dragons and eventually a conqueror.

In "Game of Thrones" Season 7 Daenerys will get rid of the off-the-shoulder with V-neckline and crossed-over halter neck dresses. In the last season of "GoT," she sported a black ensemble with a broad and strong shoulder that gives her the look of a military commander.

This time she looks less feminine. Clapton designed it this way because Daenerys is stepping up as a leader and similar to Headey’s Cersei, femininity is kept at a minimum when you head a group.

On the other hand, Jon Snow who was known as Ned Stark's bastard son, used to wear the order's mandatory black attire with a heavy cape and black shearling collar when he joined the Night's Watch. However, in the Winterfell, his looks dramatically changed and it came closer to Ned's. He noticeably sported the same kind of cape trimmed in wolf pelt. This is because he is stepping into the role of Ned as he becomes a full-fledged member of the Stark family.
