New HBO Promo Provides a Glimpse at Game of Thrones Actors in Season 7 Costume

HBO Promo

Several Game of Thrones cast members appeared in a new HBO promo that turned up online today, decked in their season 7 gear. Sophie Turner, Kit Harington, Emilia Clarke, Isaac Hempstead Wright and more open up and say, “Ahhhhhhh”  in the new video along with many other big HBO stars.

Check it out:

Of particular interest, the video gives us a nice clear look at Clarke in Daenerys’ Targaryen red-and-black wardrobe, and at Hempstead Wright in a clean new set of clothing and brown furs for Bran Stark.

It’s been a long wait, but it seems like the Game of Thrones info is coming out now from HBO at a faster rate; perhaps footage from the new season (besides ominously slow walking set to Britpop) isn’t as far off as we’d feared?

    1. Bran and Sansa looks really strange and waxy, almost like plastic dolls. The lighting must be strange in that studio. It is nice to see a new cloak for Bran, and cool to have a cameo from Jaime and especially Tormund.

    2. Damn, what a great promo for HBO in general. I think it’s funny how they just drop these on TV unannounced, with no official YouTube or social media posts about them later.

    3. Dany’s dress looks similar and yet different from the other promo, it didn’t look like it had wool in the sleeves before. I can’t help but wonder if she alters the dress when she eventually goes North for the warmth as though I imagine Dragonstone will be colder than she’s used to but from what we’ve seen of the rest of Team Dany in Dragonstone they didn’t seem that wrapped up in warm clothes neither did Team Cersei and Kings Landing isn’t that much further away than Dragonstone.

    4. Mel,

      Yeah, but it would be like someone from Louisiana coming up to Michigan; what we consider “vaguely cool outside” has them driving with the car windows up and the heat on.

    5. My obsessive self went back to double check what Bran was wearing when we last saw him by the weirwood tree in 6×10, and he was wearing his wilding furs not this smart new fur cloak. The black clothing underneath looks new but I can’t be sure because of the poor video quality. I think that’s a pretty big spoiler that HBO just revealed, no?

      Anyway, I’m loving all these little teases we’re getting. It seems like they’re coming at rapid pace now.

    6. Sansa is looking good! Can’t wait to see her full outfit.

      Her necklace is very similar to the black chain thing she wore when her hair was black.

    7. At .38 seconds there is a small pic of Missandei in her new outfit near the top of the screen. She looks so pretty in her new outfit.

    8. Man, this website really loves Sophie Turner. They could have at least put up the screen shot of Bran since this is the first time we are getting a look at his new rags and the clip moved too fast for me to get a good look at what he is wearing.

      Was he warging in the clip?

    9. @yeahclarke on Twitter compared both Dany’s outfits as pics from both Promo’s they are similar but different. The first one isn’t as thick and the second one is more padded, the sleeves aren’t as thick, the v neck part in the dress in the first promo goes goes lower down. In the first one she also doesn’t have that white bit starting at the V of her neck going into the side of her chest, it’s instead completely black.
      It reminds me of the earlier seasons when she had that same blue Qarth dress but altered it in different ways.

    10. No new outfit for Tormund :(. I was expecting something a little more “royal” but keeping in touch with his wildling roots, since it’s safe to assume that he will be one of Jon’s confidents.

    13. Jack Bauer 24,

      Because of this

      Dany goes North during the wight hunt and sails North at the end of the season so she needs warmer clothes in the snow up North than she would need at a beach environment like Dragonstone/Kings Landing and also considering it’s a true Targaryen outfit probably the only one she’s ever worn it makes more sense to alter it then make and wear a completely different outfit.

    14. DragonBallfan,

      I swear Dany gets more beautiful each season. Westeros becomes her, she glows ! ❤

      Mel,

      Exactly what I had in mind ! I think you’re 100% correct ! The fur at the sleeves and neck are pretty much a dead giveaway !

    15. Flayed Potatoes,

      Bran also has blood on the corner of his lowere lip. Llooks like he is going to be attacked, and I wonder who will be the attacker. My bet is on Littlefinger or his agents: Bran’s return wrecks his pretty picture.

      Maybe that’s why Sansa will sentence him to death?

    16. I really wish GoT wasn’t awash with real fur. The Lord of the Rings films managed to create their look largely without it, as did so many Medieval / Fantasy / Sword & Sandal films before it (old BBC productions recycled fur from vintage clothes). It has always been something that has stopped me from wholeheartedly loving this show – I can’t lose myself in fantasy when I see real fur on screen, because for those animals it isn’t fantasy, and no, it isn’t ‘the same as eating meat’ as some claim (cows and sheep aren’t kept in tiny wire cages). I really thought we’d consigned its use to the dustbin of history and it’s sad the way young people have instead become so ‘meh’ about it.

    18. Why do all those costumes look a bit jury-rigged?

      I hope Dany has the Targ Black and Red but something looks awkward about that cape and gown , and the silver chain thing does not look all that elegant.

    19. Inga,

      I think Bran had that injury in season 4. He got it from when he was a prisoner at Craster’s.

      Littlefinger better not dare harm my child.

    20. all of them looks awesome…especially the Starks Kids they are looking more and more like their house style and I love it….
      Sansa’s wig doesn’t bother me… I think she looks Beautiful…. Dany looks beautiful like as always… 🙂 so exited for the new season….

    21. Dominatrix looking Sansa with some kind of chain hanging off the fur, Bran looks high af (don’t eat the funny looking mushrooms little man) Jon looking like a fully grown Eddie Munster who escaped from his strange family to parts unkown Alaska.

    22. Hom,
      Who’s says it’s real fur? Lots of other things in GOT aren’t real either. Unless you think Bran was really made cripple and Jaime really lost his hand. Not to talk about Theon, Greyworm and Varys… The fur could be fake too…
      It’s normal that they wear (fake) fur when winter has finally arrived. What else would they wear???
      (Btw, I’m not the kind that would buy fur. I don’t even buy real leather when I can avoid it)

    23. At 0:38 it looks like a Theon in the bottom left corner of the screen. It’s there for a millisecond, I had to slow it down a lot to catch it. I didn’t notice anything different about him though…

        Quote  Reply

    24. Chilli,

      Exactly, besides, real fur would be way to expensive to use and maintain.

      Ok, so normally there is a setting where I can slow the video way down. There isn’t one I can see – anyone enlighten me? Coz it all going way to fast for me to catch much more than a glimpse of a face

    25. Rygritte,

      The Jaime one is hilarious.

      Good to get a glimpse of Bran, Tormund and Jaime. Dany looks regal. Are Jon’s furs getting even more thicker lol. From these promos alone it looks like he feels the cold more than anyone else. I wish he would stop wearing that wolf on his shoulders!

      Jenny,

      I suppose I won’t notice it much during the episodes, but in these stills all I can see is her wig lol.

    29. Ghost Lunch,

      I think Bran will get new outfit in Winterfell, though I have to admit that last season the Castle Black proved to have its own store of fancy furs, lether, and textiles. But there’s no Sansa there, so, unless Meera takes a neadle… One way or another I hope that she gets a new dress too.

      And as for Tormund, Sansa must do something! He won’t win Brienne, if he continues to dress like that. His wildling-style furcoat should be left for expeditions beyond the Wall and similar.

    30. Oh did I spot Missandei at the end right there? I think I did. I saw Maeve from Westworld too <3

      ghost of winterfell,

      I think it’s because Kit is fun sized, so the furs would make him look more KITN-esque. He’s so tiny you just want to put him in your pocket, really. I remember the costume designers did the same with Robb after he became KITN. It makes the characters look more imposing.

      Inga,

      I hope not..

      Me, if Littlefinger even dares breathe in Bran’s presence:

    33. Flayed Potatoes,

      “Fun sized”… lol, that’s one way of putting it. I kinda admire Kit because he doesn’t have any inhibitions in being snapped next to Gwen/ Sophie or even Rory/ Jason Mamoa etc. Not all guys would be comfortable with that.
      It’s just that the dead animal on his shoulders distracts me all the time and I prefer him when he is not drowning in those furs!

    34. I don’t care for the big metal ring motif on Sansa. Didn’t like it in her Dark Sansa outfit either. It looks anachronistic to me. Reminds me too much of the chain belts that ‘Mod’ young women wore in the Carnaby Street era, circa 1964, to go with their orange vinyl Mary Quant miniskirts and white lipstick and go-go boots.

      I’ve been watching some clips from the concert recently. Thank you so much for sharing yours! The concert seems really fun and I’m glad Ramin played “Needle” and that you had such a good time! 🙂

    37. Wolfish,

      That must’ve been great! Could you see the orchestra well enough to make out what that instrument was, early in the piece, that sounds like a hammered dulcimer? Did they have someone playing an actual clavichord or virginal or harpsichord? Or was it an electronic keyboard instrument, like a synclavier? I guess that sound would be easy enough to synthesize, but it would be cooler if they used some authentic period instruments.

        Quote  Reply

    38. Firannion,

      I think it was a hammered dulcimer; Djawadi mentioned it, and it was used in more than one piece.

      I do wish I’d had more battery power! (Note to self: Next time, bring several stand-alone chargers.)

      One of the things I really appreciated is that Djawadi apparently traveled with a core group of seven or eight soloists, but the orchestra was the orchestra for each city in which they performed. So they had to practice with musicians from all those different places!

      To answer your question about the instruments, they did use some period instruments, but alas I am not a musician and cannot tell you which ones. Of the soloists, one was a gentleman who played several types of wind instrument (he kinda looked like Syrio Forel’s eccentric cousin, LOL), and another was a percussionist who, likewise, played both modern-day and older, more traditional drums from several cultures. All the musicians were amazing; in the core group there was also a violinist, a cellist, and a vocalist who is surely a trained opera singer.

      After the show “officially” ended and people had started to leave, the last thing was a hysterically funny “In Memoriam” montage shown to a very jaunty, live version of “The Bear and the Maiden Fair” played and sung by the core group. We (Wolf Pup #2, one of her best friends and I) laughed our heads off.

      Lonely Cat and Aryamad also attended, and they might be able to tell you more about specific instruments. 🙂

    39. Flayed Potatoes,

      It was a fantastic experience. The only reason I came home was for the husband (a.k.a. Saner Half) and the cat!

      We have a very slinky, dark gray Devonshire Rex (Saner Half has been adopting Rex rescues for more than ten years), and for Halloween I want to put dragon wings on him and have him be baby Drogon. He likes to sit in the sunny window by the front door and greet visitors, so that’ll be perfect.

      I’m having a more difficult time convincing Saner Half to be Varys. (“Why do you think I should be the eunuch?”) He’s intelligent, beefy, bald, and possesses the ability to deliver a smartass line with a perfectly straight face, so…

    40. Firannion,

      I believe that Ramin was playing the hammered dulcimer at the center of the set during “Needle” but I am not sure about the instrumentation during other songs. “Needle” was one of my favorites! Thanks for posting it, Wolfish.

      I had to ask my husband to stop eating his popcorn so I could completely immerse myself in “Light of the Seven!” We were on the orchestra end and ? far from Ramin’s pop-up stage. I enjoyed the wildfire gradually consuming the organ before the big finale.

      Btw – Wolfish and her pup are awesome!

    41. Wolfish,

      If the cat likes the fiery sun so much, then it’s only fitting to be a dragon for Halloween tbh.

      Show him some of Varys’ best scenes on the show (his scenes with Tyrion in KL). That should convince him!

    42. Lonely Cat,

      Awww, thank you!!! You and Mr. Cat are awesome yourselves. Wolf Pup and her friend had a grand time with you and your friends. (Wolf Pup used to tease me mercilessly about my propensity for striking up conversations with strangers anywhere and everywhere. She doesn’t tease me about that anymore.)

      “Light of the Seven” is where my battery died, much to my distress. I left the 55-second video up on FB because amazingly, several people “liked” it despite not getting an, um, happy ending.

      Flayed Potatoes,

      He’s never seen the whole series. We’re watching it right now, and have gone through S3 Ep4. He loves Tyrion, Arya, and Ygritte, is enjoying the Brienne/Jaime chemistry, and figured out early on that the Hound wasn’t really a bad guy. I can’t wait for him to see Tyrion and Varys across the Narrow Sea!

      Hi, unfortunately it is real fur – HBO’s own factsheet for series 3 said they used over 31,000 square feet of fur and leather. It wasn’t vintage – it was from a named furrier. HBO got a backlash and petitions about it so now don’t seem to release any info on what their practices are but given the continuing controversy on veggie viewer forums and so on I’d have thought their PR department would have announced if they’d started using recycled fur, and as they haven’t said anything I have to presume the furs used are still new.

        Quote  Reply

    44. Hom,

      The article I read says that they use 10% real fur and 90% faux fur, so you’re being a bit misleading. I am not taking any sides here and I agree that they shouldn’t use real fur. Just pointing out that you’re not 100% correct.

      Though, in all fairness, I can’t tell if theyre talking about the show or just this GoT tour in Ireland, so nevermind I suppose. This is a debate I don’t want to get into.

    46. That’s a very big dissapointment. Wish they didn’t use the real thing, especially because there’s so much good fake fur 🙁 And what difference would it make even if you could see just a little bit that it’s fake… at least no extra animals would have to die for the show.

      I’m sorry for my reaction and I don’t want to start a big argument or anything, but really wanted to get this of my chest.

It’s the April Fools’ Day entry from a webpage he follows, Geopolitical Futures, and it’s screamingly funny in a totally dry way. Also, the maps are pretty cool.

      It’s not a new costume designer, Michelle Clapton left but she came back for the last episode last season and is now back full time and created these ones.

      EmoAbstracts,

      I remember we saw that pin in the filming spoilers in Spain but I don’t think it’s Hand Of The Queen as not only is Tyrion wearing that but it looks slightly different than Missandei’s. I do think though it is a pin to show Missandei’s position in Dany’s court so I think we can probably expect Missandei’s gets promoted to something, just not certain what yet.

      They use 10% real fur in each of their fur costumes 90% faux fur, they do it for the looks and buy it from a UK vintage shop it’s the fur of raccoon’s as a lot of other animals have been outlawed to be killed for their pelts now in the UK. At least we know they don’t have that many furs but unfortunately from what I’ve read the Games Of Thrones Tours also do it but use it more often than the show because they apparently want people to feel like they are in the GOT world in the tours.

      Hi Mel, that Belfast Telegraph news article was about a local tour company providing cloaks and things for tourists to wear while visiting sites used in the series, not the makers of the series itself – the costumiers of Game of Thrones get their furs from a furriers called ‘House of de Clifford’.
