A portion of the proceeds will go to Wild Spirit Wolf Sanctuary, a non-profit which rescues displaced, unwanted and un-releasable wolves, wolf-dogs and other exotic canines. SuicideGirls founder, Missy Suicide, spoke of her excitement for the event.

“We are incredibly honored and excited to perform the SuicideGirls: Blackheart Burlesque Show at George R.R. Martin’s beautiful venue,” she said. “We are such big fans of his writing and his powerful female characters. When conceiving this show we had to put a tribute number to Daenerys Targaryen as she embodies the kick ass strength we all strive for. To think that we will be performing the number in his theater, our inner fan girls are exploding with glee!”

SuicideGirls’ performance will be on November 16 at 7:00 PM. Tickets are available at blackheartburlesque.com.

    4. I’d beat, dragon girl is hella thick. George is a freak! Why am I surprised though… As for the steel books, I’ll pass. Tired of these companies, double, even triple dipping I to our pockets. When the series is over, I’ll buy the complete edition, which will probly get several editions as well

    5. Call me an idiot, but what’s a “Steelbook”? There must a WHOLE lot of extra content for me to willingly lay down 80 bucks for a single season.

      And I still don’t get the idea of burlesque. She talks about “non-traditional”-beauty, but from the pictures, I see no plus-size models. They may not have DD’s, but they’re not really untraditionally beautiful.. only that they’re wearing geeky outfits.

      Queenofthrones: I bet a lot of Stan-fans would find that hawt

      Depends on what said “neck-to-ankle”-dress is made off.. xD

      The Suicide Girls website specializes in girls with tattoos, piercings, dyed hair, shaved heads, plus-size or otherwise. Mostly girls alternative with “alternative” style, hence non-traditional.

    8. If I lived close enough to NM to go I would and I would bring a book and get Mr. Martin’s autograph. I was raised in Vegas, this stuff doesn’t bother me in the least. Doesn’t interest me either, but I would go for the chance to meet GRRM.

    9. God of tits and wine:
      Ser Oromis Locke,
      A Blu-ray packaged in a tin = steelbook

      Okay, so I can get S1 for €20 ($22,31), why would I pay $57,67 more for just that? I get that it may become a collector’s item (I doubt it, it may have if it was released in 2011), but $57,67 is a whole lot of money for just a few bonus features and a tin wrapping. I’m assuming I’ll have to pay taxes on what’s stated above ánd shipping as a Dutchman. While I can get S1-4 for $94,79. which includes taxes and I have no shipping. And no tin package, but I get all available seasons.

    11. Sigh. Got all excited thinking it was actually the GoT cast performing burlesque. What? They did a faux-musical for charity!

    12. Finally, a burlesque interpretation of Hardhome and the massacre at the Fist of the First Men!

      (ok…I’ll settle for Dany, as planned) I would love to see this but I understand that there will be only one Suicide Girls performance at his 128-seat theatre (with the first few rows reserved for the maester’s posse, I presume)?
