I love the fabric and cut of the dress for her second wedding. I even went online to see if I could find something similar (of course, I'd have to have it sent in from the UK). If I should ever get married, I'd like a winter wedding. That fabric and a similar dress would be just right.
Costume CO (17 days ago)
Yes, you might reach out to them and ask them if they have a supplier in the States.
Rachel Davin (23 days ago)
+Costume CO Ahhhh...okay...thanks! Which means I might actually be able to buy it here in the States. :)
Costume CO (23 days ago)
No sorry, they are the manufacturer. They don't sell directly to the public.
Rachel Davin (23 days ago)
+Costume CO Thanks! Oooo...it's so pretty! Just sent the link to my sister so she can dream a little. Why no prices listed? Is it one of those "if you have to ask you can't afford it" situations?

What is the word you use to refer to the outer garments worn by Sansa and Littlefinger at 20:47? Hoovalon? Hoopalon? The closed captioning translates it as "hoop Ilan"--but then, CC translations can be notoriously absurd. (For instance, the Japanese word you used for Sansa's bedchamber garment with Theon came across as "Hydrogen bond"!)
Costume CO (1 month ago)
Sorry about that Prickly Pear. I label these items now. The outer garment garment is called a houppeland. The Japanese under garment is called a hadajuban. 😁

I wonder what she would have said about Sansa's dress with the embroidered Stark direwolf with flowers.

This is a minor thing but Elizabeth of York was the daughter of Edward IV and Elizabeth Woodville, not Henry VI. And she married Henry VII.
burdistan (2 months ago)
You do?! OMG you have no idea how happy that makes my. Official new favourite channel. I am eternally grateful!
Costume CO (2 months ago)
Oh thanks burdistan. 😁 I actually have 2 videos on Vanessa Ives from Penny Dreadful. I absolutely adored the costumes.
burdistan (2 months ago)
I'm really glad you did though. I mean yes the quality has definitely improved in the execution but that's normal since you have more practice, but the content is great and they're definitely not bad or cringy by any means. Also if you have time I would love if you could check out Penny Dreadful and do a video on the costumes, they're by Oscar Winner Gabriella Pescucci and they are to. die. for.
Costume CO (2 months ago)
Thank you so much. I've left up the older ones, but the sound quality and scripting are a little cringy. Haha.
burdistan (2 months ago)
Oh ok yeah that makes sense. I should've looked when you uploaded it, my bad. But I absolutely love your channel, found it a few days ago and immediately subscribed!
BlueBerryFairy1 (2 months ago)
Also interesting about her wedding dress... the laced back is, I think, supposed to indicate to be a specific demand by Ramsay, laced with likely only a very frail sort of dread so he can quickly tear the entire gown apart from behind, not giving her time to undress herself/take any control over the situation - once again underlining his gutwrenching cruelty, sadism and obsession with controlling his victims... though his line with Sansa strives from the books, this is very well-structured screenwriting
Costume CO (2 months ago)
Thanks for sharing that!
Higgy Higglett (2 months ago)
So, the right-over-left covering of her gown in S1E7 is probably foreshadowing. That is the way to wrap a kimono for a funeral.
Costume CO (2 months ago)
I don't think I mention that, I just came up with that based upon what you're saying. 😁
Higgy Higglett (2 months ago)
Shoot! I haven't watched that video yet! I know what I'm doing when I get off work!
Costume CO (2 months ago)
Except that Cersei wears her gown that way too, although you could argue that under her father's thumb, she is also controlled.
Higgy Higglett (2 months ago)
The stand-out for me, is that all of Sansa's kimono-styled dresses are right-over-left while she's basically owned by the lannisters. So it could've just started as a nod to Ned's demise, or a state-of-mind of her character.
Costume CO (2 months ago)
Yeah, I never thought of that but good point. I don't know if Michele Clapton knows the story arc of all of the characters, but it's possible that Dave and Dan hinted at their fates.

Right back at you! It was really hard to see some of the embroidery details until I looked at photos and then on Michele Carragher's website, the woman that does the embroidery. She has awesome pictures.
Kerri McDonald (2 months ago)
+Costume CO I just love u. I never noticed all that beautiful embroidery on Sansa's gown. Especially part down side(hip) and gimme one of those petticoats!! I have a strapless dress with petticoat. Found at really cheap place. It's cream with fitted waste and thread for belt loops for black ribbon. U just remembered I had it!😂Thanks again and thanks for being so sweet💖💖 I'm going to turn my daughter, Naomi, to you. She's 16 and loves this stuff. Project Runway us one of her fav shows😃

can you please turn down the volume on the music when you make these videos. please.
Costume CO (2 months ago)
Hiya, K. I get more into that in some of my other videos, although it's not as much my forte and construction and history. 😁
K Rodriguez (2 months ago)
yes, symbolism references are awesome. the way Screenprism channel does it, if you could do that with the costumes !!! :)
Costume CO (2 months ago)
Yeah, that video is 2 years old. In my more recent videos, I try to incorporate the historical references and symbolism.
K Rodriguez (2 months ago)
thanks for your reply. your TOP TEN COSTUMES OF SEASON 7 was the first one I viewed and enjoyed, and here I am trying to see them all. Hence a bit surprised by the lousy sound. I wish you would elaborate a little more about the history, comparison, context and application of these costumes, in addition to describing them.
Costume CO (2 months ago)
Hi K, This is one of my first videos. I hope you find the later videos with better sound.
TheVargr (2 months ago)
I've seen a couple of these dresses in person and definitely noticed the great detail on them (although it was a little odd staring at the details of a dress whilst the actress was wearing it). The main difference I seen in them from other characters was that they were one of the few costumes not made to look rugged or worn down.
Costume CO (2 months ago)
Thank you so much for sharing! That's very cool. :)
TheVargr (2 months ago)
Yea I was. Can't talk about any details, but I did meet Sophie Turner and she seemed very down to earth and friendly. To me her costume stood out as it had so many levels of detail to it that I had not seen in other actors costumes (I'm no expert in clothing). Also seen a couple of her KL costumes at the seasons 3 and 4 GOT exibition when it was in Belfast.
Costume CO (2 months ago)
Were you on set?
edi (2 months ago)
So many details I've never noticed. It's amazing how much work must have gone into things you see only for a second... To be honest, I guess that I didn't pay too much attention to Sansa, because I never liked her. She only got interesting, when she finally took her life into her own hands and made dogfood out of Ramsey Bolton...

Raycicle Rae (8 months ago)
I really wish they would do more with Sansa's costumes! She's the one character that loves making clothes and they give her so little!
Costume CO (8 months ago)
Yeah, there was a bit of a lost opportunity there. I had the same reaction to Sansa's season 7 costumes and said so in a later video. My other gripe was that all of the scenes were so darkly lit that you could barely make out any of the detail anyway.
Raycicle Rae (8 months ago)
I did mean in general but definitely in season 6 & 7 where she had like 2 outfits each season. And the ones in season 7 you can't really tell are different. I would love to see her in something more commanding as acting Lady of Winterfell or just with more direwolves on her dresses (in the likeness of Lady or Ghost even).
Costume CO (8 months ago)
Do you mean in the later seasons or in general?
C Almiron (10 months ago)
Great video! Suggestion: the 2007 movie Angel with Michael Fassbender. Didn't like the movie, but have watched it 3 times for the beautiful dresses! They really reveal character and mental states.
Costume CO (10 months ago)
+C Almiron I've never heard of that movie. Okay, I will check it out.
Kathryn Carty (1 year ago)
Historically, she's a lot like Anne Neville, actually. Anne was the daughter of the King's right hand, the Earl of Warwick, and she was married off as a pawn for both sides in the Wars of the Roses. First, she married Edward of Lancaster (the son of Henry VI and Margaret of Anjou), but when he died in battle, she married Richard III, of the House of York. Since Sansa's first betrothed, Joffrey, is the son of Cersei, who is often compared to the fierce Margaret of Anjou, this seems like an apt comparison. As a bonus, Anne Neville's second husband Richard II was famously rumored to be a hunchback (perhaps a bit like Tyrion's dwarfism) and has been vilified by history as the murderer of his child-king predecessor, Edward V (just like Tyrion was framed for Joffrey's murder).
Kattunge (1 year ago)
It's important to mention that the theme of dragonflies is important to Sansa even though they aren't her sigil because dragonflies change their skin according to their environment, which you see her do many times.
Kattunge (1 year ago)
Nope, it's a show thing, I've just read it in forums when I was curious. I love how Sansa's clothing has such a hidden meaning. I only wish I could sew like that :0

Sarah Jane Jennings (1 year ago)
Martin may have taken certain bits and pieces of history and incorporated them in his books, however, to say that he the based the entire story on the "War of the Roses", (know at the time as The Cousin's War), is simply wrong. Let alone, that Sansa Stark is based on Edward IV's daughter, Elizabeth of York, or for that matter her granddaughter Elizabeth I!! Please note; Prior to the 19th century, "The War of Roses" was known as the "cousins War". The reason being, it was a war among cousins. Despite, being Lancaster against York, they were all infact Plantagenets. The Plantagenet dynasty ruled from 1154-1457. And none of them owned dragons! Having read the books, I am almost certain that the plot line has very little to do warring cousins. Perhaps I am mistaken, but nonetheless, and it does, but it would still be story far removed from The Cousins War
Costume CO (1 year ago)
Well, I don't know enough about British medieval history to have come up with that on my own. I learned about it on the interwebs of course. Here's one: https://www.theguardian.com/books/2015/may/29/game-of-thrones-war-of-roses-hbo As far as the dragons, Martin has said that while no real witches or dragons existed in the middle ages, people still believed in such things: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=APLoxnEWt0Y&t=115s

Fashion has never been my thing but the outfits are so beautiful in GoT even the mans armor look good. Happy to have ran in to this channel, do you do videos on the mans outfits as well by any chance?
Wamp-Wamp (1 year ago)
Yeah after watching a few of your ladies videos I checked out the rest. I was really happy to see you did a break down of the houses and armor. I never realized how Japanese inspired some of the shows outfits where. Keep doing good work.
Costume CO (1 year ago)
+Wamp-Wamp Hi there, if you check out my GOTs playlist, I've done dedicated videos to Petyr Baelish and Joffrey. In my series on the costumes of Westeros, I cover many of the men's costumes including armour.
Elizabeth of York was the eldest child of Edward the IV, not of his enemy, Henry the VI Edward was married to Elizabeth Woodville. Henry the VI, the Mad King, was married to Margaret of Anjou.

CrimsonVipera (1 year ago)
Those "butterfly closings" are decorative fibulas - a type of medieval brooches. They are not a permanent part of the garments, only clipped into them, so the ones in Mother's Mercy are the exact same she wore throughout the previous seasons. Also, it's only my theory not a fact, but I think the decoration is not butterfly/dragonfly wings but sycamore seeds. I think so because sycamore represents growth, persistence, strength, and endurance - which would be perfect for Sansa, especially since she started to use them when she started fighting back. CV
CrimsonVipera (1 year ago)
I've found that video about five seconds after clicking send on this comment. I still think the sycamore symbolism could be pretty close to home, seeing as Weirwood seems to be inspired by sycamore. The penannular brooch/fibula distinction is an entirely English thing. No other language has this distinction.
Costume CO (1 year ago)
+CrimsonVipera Thanks for the comment. This video is rather old now, so I had updated that they are Weirwood clasps, more correctly pennanular brooches which is a later version of a fibula.

Okay, I've numbered them up. Hope that helps. The first few shouldn't matter because they are pretty much stand alone. Cheers, Heidi.
Costume CO (1 year ago)
+DramaKing1 Okay, I see what you mean! Okay, will do!
DramaKing1 (1 year ago)
Costume Cinematografico sure. Several of your shows follow an order. In the titles, could you maybe number them in the order you did them? So we know which is first, 2nd, 3rd, etc... The first one we watched was about Margaery Tyrell, the second we watched was Sansa Stark. It would be cool if I knew the correct order to watch them. This is just a suggestion, not criticism. :)
Costume CO (1 year ago)
+DramaKing1 Could you please elaborate? I'm not understanding your meaning.
xXLadyXerigaXx (1 year ago)
23:13 - Why do you call them "kimono-style sleeves"? I think they're not necessarily inspired by Japan, as far as I remember, for example in medieval Europe, between around 12th and 15th c., there've existed in fashion similar sleeves. Or is there something more to them that makes them kimono-style? Im just curious.
xXLadyXerigaXx (1 year ago)
+Costume Cinematografico Thank you for such detailed explanation! It was really helpful. Yes, as I know that the "open/crossover style" was not present in medieval gowns, I was just wandering about those sleeves. Now I understand :) Best regards!
Costume CO (1 year ago)
+xXLadyXerigaXx Great question! Yes, the gowns are definitely medieval/middle ages in nature, but what makes the the sleeves kimono style is the shape. Medieval sleeves are fitted at the upper arm and then flare out into a bell shape, while kimono style are fitted to the elbow and then square off and drop. It's actually a long rectangle shape if you look closely. Also, medieval gowns were not open/crossover style like these gowns, more Han Dynasty and Japanese. I hope this helps, Cheers, Heidi.

Wow, the designers put so much care and effort into the details of the costume, most of which go unnoticed by viewers. They must truly love what they do.
Belinda Peng (1 year ago)
I'm really intrigued by the necklace that Sansa wore in the crypt, the one that has a needle on its end to mirror Arya's needle. I saw on a Youtube video that there are many symbols throughout the series that have mystical references, such as Phi, and that are seen in the shapes that the whitewalkers draw in the snow. I presume that that is the shape I see in Sansa's necklace, but I would really love to know more. It was a rather bold looking item, actually. Very different from what I'd expect Sansa's jewelry style to be. So intrigued by it!
Costume CO (1 year ago)
Here it is: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_HORm_TCA8s [5:38]
Costume CO (1 year ago)
+Belinda Peng Yes, I saw the one about Phi as well. I did address it in my Q & A - I'll get the link for you, although like Screen Prism, its honestly speculation. After I posted the video about it, Michele Clapton explained it as something else entirely. So I think in the end, it will be up to you toake the final decision.
Dina Shrestha (1 year ago)
the description is amazing. I have been fascinated by her character transformation projected into her dress. you explained everything so well and you even explained the fabrics, embroidery type, motifs as well as other surface ornamentation methods so well. amazing video indeed!!

bansley27 (1 year ago)

Costume CO (1 year ago)
+bansley27 It's called the houppeland. It's a unisex garment from the middle ages. Petyr is wearing a new one in season 7.
Kaylie Cerra (1 year ago)
if I may give some criticism: if your title includes a series title then the people who want to watch it probably already know the backstory of the property. That is to say you don't need to explain how Sansa fits into the story to explain and explore her wardrobe choices. hope this didn't sound too bitchy honestly meant no offense
Costume CO (1 year ago)
+Kaylie Cerra No it doesn't sound bitchy! It's really just meant as a refresher since we are now in the 7th season. I myself forget so many plot points and pieces of information. I think books readers (of which I am not one except for the first) know all of these pieces of information, so I guess for them it might be redundant. This vid is also almost a year old when I first started the channel, so I am trying to get the scripts tighter without too much additional info that I've already mentioned in previous videos or what would be common knowledge. Not sure if you've seen more recent ones, but hopefully they will be more to your liking. I do appreciate your feedback and thank you for your comment.

Claire Lin (1 year ago)
Does Sansa repeat her clothes because she's sad and not in the mood of styling herself? Or is it because while under Cersei, they don't take care to commission much clothes for her?
Costume CO (1 year ago)
+Claire Lin I think it's a budget thing. Each season, the actors had no more than 3 outfits.
Samantha K (1 year ago)
Those look more like beetle wings, or sycamore tree seeds than butterfly wings on the pin. However this is a great video! Awesome details! Also this is the first video I've seen and holy crap! Subscribed!
Euphonia Carstairs (1 year ago)
I can't help but notice that in scenes where Sansa is wearing either jewelry or clothing fasteners with a 'winged' theme, whether it depicts flying insects or key seeds, that she tends to be in circumstances when she is trapped and a prisoner. Is it a silent wish to fly free of her trapped situation?
Costume CO (1 year ago)
+Sam Yes, I made a correction in a later video. I think they are Weirwood key seeds. Thank you so much for commenting!

Having just watched the Margaery video and now this one I notice Cersei has the off the shoulder sleeves you mentioned in Margaery's video (I see it in the photo at the beginning of them at the table in winterfell). So I am thinking that is a style Margaery picked up from the Baratheons and incorporated into her own style, and then later ditched.
Costume CO (1 year ago)
+standincub Oh, which outfit do you mean?
Charlie Wallhead (1 year ago)
I'm absolutely loving this series you're doing! My only query is that in the 18th century structured underpinnings were referred to as 'a set of stays' and not 'a corset', that terminology only came in in the 19th century. Corsets usually have a busk, and stays tend to lace at both the front and back, though evidence does exist of stays with only front /or/ back lacing. I'm a historical costumer and underpinnings are my speciality, its a tiny thing, but something that grinds my gears! :)
Costume CO (1 year ago)
Thanks Charlotte for the correction! I just checked and it appears that I use stays and corsets interchangeably. I'll make sure to get it right in the future. Perhaps I can call on you in the future for fact checking? 😃
Leora Peoples (1 year ago)
It was noted that Michele Clapton didn't usually design jewelry, but did she design the maple-seed pod closures for Sansa's outer garment ? Did she design the brooches used throughout the series? Thanks! Leora [email protected]
Costume CO (1 year ago)
+Leora Peoples I'm not sure, I suspect that she designed all of the penannular brooches like the Tully fish. My niece brought me a Hand of the King brooch when she was in Croatia, but honestly it looked just like a massed produce GOTs piece of jewellery. Another viewer bought Dany's dragon brooches from Etsy. Have you checked there?
Leora Peoples (1 year ago)
The details of the clasps on Sansa outer garment, originally identified as dragonfly closures, are quite intriguing and reminiscent of the winged seed pods of the maple tree, which I believe you mention later on. I like the way you explain the technical details of these closures and of the brooches used throughout all of your GOT analyses. I've been saving some wonderful fabric for a coat and such maple seed pod closures would really make the look. Thanks for sharing your insight and knowledge. (ps-Would you know if such closures would be available?) thanks again Leora, [email protected]

selenameeka (1 year ago)
This is such a beautiful channel! I'm loving the videos and have already subscribed! I did want to mention, I read that the insect jewelry she wears in the first season isn't butterflies, but dragonflies. It's a reference to a story she was told when she was younger about a woman and a man called The Prince of Dragonflies. She liked the dragonfly imagery (she wanted her own prince) because of the story and added it into her clothing (which you did show, I didn't realize how detailed it was nor how it was made until I saw it here!!) but it's also used in the series as a foreshadowing technique. I've read about it here: https://www.quora.com/What-is-the-significance-of-Sansa-Stark-dragonfly-necklace-and-ring-in-season-1, and here: http://gameofthrones.wikia.com/wiki/Costumes:_Major_Characters#Sansa_Stark . She does have an actual butterfly necklace, but it looks very different (http://nobodysuspectsthebutterfly.tumblr.com/post/49920877979/thank-you-for-thinking-of-me-sansas-butterfly) that she wears a lot as well, which is also probably used for foreshadowing, since a lot of Sansa's looks show her current situation and yet also how she's evolving. I think this is really shown in that she often wears the same dresses and changes out the dragonfly pendant with the butterfly depending on what's going on in the show. Again, thank you for this channel and I'm going to go through and watch all your videos. I'm loving that you seem to be hitting on a lot of shows and movies I've always loved the costumes in!
Costume CO (1 year ago)
Hi Selena, I just checked the script and I did make a booboo because that is clearly her dragonfly necklace, which I then say again in another slide. The ring however is either a butterfly, but on closer inspection might even be a moth. In a later episode, I did decide the closures on her gowns (you know, the metal clasps) are actually weirwood keys and not dragonfly wings. Thanks so much for your keen eye. As I've said, you gals are a bunch of smart cookies.

Great channel! love it! I do have one thing for you to consider, I don't think the Closures on Sansa's gown are butterflies or dragonflies. They just don't look like that. What they do look exactly like is Maple seeds! Google Maple seeds you will see what I am saying! What if these closures are Wierwood tree seeds!? Just a thought!
Costume CO (1 year ago)
+Mr McG You are the only one to have caught my error! I do address this in 10 things I missed in Game of Thrones where I say that I was mistaken and believe that they are actually weirwood keys!
MadTheDJ (1 year ago)
Hi again, Not much to add, but perhaps to point out the butterfly imagery could be indicating Sansa's transition from a mostly passive character in the series, someone to whom things happen, a pawn in the Lannister and Little Finger games, eventually into a more active player, taking her destiny into her own hands. She's no longer the caterpillar inching along and vulnerable, but a butterfly able to move more freely and evade predators.

i remember bran using the Tully clasp to mark up the table while studying with the maester
Costume CO (1 year ago)
Absolutely!
K Wood (1 year ago)
I think it was. the second you zoomed in on the clasp that scene popped into my head. it really is the details of the show that make it so special!
Costume CO (1 year ago)
Wow, such a great memory! Was that in season 1?

+Flobbyoiboyz Thank you for the lovely comment! It's my pleasure.

This is such a cool channel. I never thought about the fashions on Game of Thrones. It doesn't help me with my obsession with at all but Im gonna revel in it!

Chris Hähnel (1 year ago)
great video! really detailed, which I admire! you mentioned some japanese words for, I think kinds of kimono (?). could you please write them down. I didn't quite catch the names and would love to look that up more particularly. greetings from Germany. ;)
Chris Hähnel (1 year ago)
Thanks very much! Really looking forward to more of your videos. :)
Costume CO (1 year ago)
Hello Germany! I'm doing closed captioning on all future videos, but for now, I hope this helps: Kimono wrap gown: Not exactly like the traditional Kimono, but a medieval gown with Japanese influences hira-nui: a Japanese style satin embroidery stitch or "long and short" stitch Houppelande: a floor length outergarment from the middle ages Crinoline: a underskirt hat creates a bell shape Stay: a type of corset from the 18th century gorget: a type of armour piece that protects the throat matelassé: a French word meaning quilted

i noticed that Sansa is wearing her "needle" cross necklace and a bit of armour over her dress in the new promo pictures released to day so im going to theorize that she does not feel quite secure as Lady of Winterfell. i love your channel im analyzing everything now. there are literal "spoilers" in the costumes.
Costume CO (1 year ago)
Okay, I will look at it again. I can't wait for the new season!
IamD0wJ0nes (1 year ago)
Her hair is in the way in the picture with littlefinger but she's definitely wearing her needle in the hbo commercial with the rest of the cast doing the "haa" hbo thing. I really hope she beats him at his own game by the end of the season.
Costume CO (1 year ago)
+IamD0wJ0nes Is she wearing needle? I couldn't quite tell, but I totally agree with you about the armour! It's hard to tell what's going on with her and Little finger, but I notice that he's standing between her and the railing while she's looking down from the balcony at Winterfell. He's definitely got her ear it will be interesting to see if he is actually able to influence her.
annick demoncuit (1 year ago)
for her wedding gown : lions are not for joffrey's house , they are for tyrion's house , the lannisters :) but I think it was a lapsus
Costume CO (1 year ago)
+Justine W Annick was referring to Tyrion's wedding to Sansa. No doubt Joffrey is full on Lannister. :)
Justine W (1 year ago)
Also I mean, Joffrey isn't really a Baratheon at all, he's full Lannister. Even if he wasn't a bastard born of incest, Joffrey appeared to elevate his mother's house to be just as important as the Baratheon's. Just look at his royal sigil, the lion and the stag on one flag
annick demoncuit (1 year ago)
it is a French name , and even in France it has become pretty rare , so I can guess in the rest of the world I must be really rare :D fun fact that really has his place here : one of the producers of game of thrones is called Annick , it is one of the first names you see when the episodes end
Costume CO (1 year ago)
Thank you so much Annick! I have made some mistakes so I don't mind being corrected. :) I actually have a cousin named Annick. It seems like a pretty rare name because you are the only other one I have seen.
annick demoncuit (1 year ago)
no actually you are right , I misheard it , you are talking about baratheons ^^ my bad , really anyway your videos are incredible , the research and the analysis are really stunning , thank you for this quality content !
Elizabeth of York was the daughter of Edward IV not Henry VI. Henry VI only had one son who was killed during the Wars of the Roses.
You're welcome. I'm already in love with your videos <3 I only started watching them two days ago but I can't seem to stop. I love how talk about the characters personalities and how it shapes their costumes/jewellery :)
Costume CO (1 year ago)
Thank you Rachael! Another viewer has corrected me but I didn't correct the video. :)
Alimew Fire (1 year ago)
I'm really surprised while you were touching on all the imagery of her first wedding dress, that you didn't mention the fact that she was wearing her Lannister pendant again in that scene. This is a really good video though
Costume CO (1 year ago)
Absolutely! I was trying to imagine that conversation in my mind.
Alimew Fire (1 year ago)
You have to assume, because she wouldn't have been allowed to get rid of it since she was still under their control. Ceseri designed everything for her that day from hair to dress, you'd have to assume she'd control jewlery too
Costume CO (1 year ago)
You're right! My bad, thank you for pointing that out. It shows that Sansa had absolutely no say in her outfit that day. Strange that she would have worn it, however, considering that Joffrey gave it to her. I'm sure that Cersei was behind it. :)
Hairy Melon (1 year ago)
A most intriguing video. Sansa's costumes are always interesting, and I hadn't realised how much her changing fortunes and character had been reflected in the colours, design and details of her clothing until now. Is there an updated video that includes Sansa's costumes from Season Six? For the historical nit-pickers... Elizabeth of York was the daughter of Edward IV, not of Henry VI, whose only child, Edward of Westminster died in his teens at the battle of Tewkesbury. Just for the record.
Costume CO (1 year ago)
Hi Hairy Melon, I try to incorporate the jewelry in each video. Have you seen my Daenarys videos yet? In my next video about Melisandre, I spend quite a bit of time on her mysterious choker.
Hairy Melon (1 year ago)
Hello and thank you for your reply. I am enjoying your GoT costume videos very much indeed and am very pleased to hear a season six is in the pipeline! I'm glad you like my name, which is from a song I heard years ago. It was called "I'm shy, Mary Ellen, I'm shy" in which the bashful suitor mispronounces his young lady's name as 'Hairy Melon' at one point and it still makes me laugh. One of my middle names is Mary, and I had very long hair (nearly four feet long) for many years, hence... Hairy Melon. I'm relieved you didn't mind the historical correction, and you're quite correct about how easy it is to get confused by all the many kings of the same name with all the attendant numerals; everyone does! There have been a number of Queens as monarch in their own right(s?) of course, but to remember all eight Henrys and Edwards, four Williams, three Richards (possibly four), two each of James' and Charles', and the sprinkling of Harold, John, Stephen, (even a Louis, but we don't talk about him much as he was looked upon as an invader, despite having been invited), and so many others - well,a considerable task; too numerous and historically distant to mention. Keep up the good work! Could you possibly make a video with the emphasis on GoT jewellery too, please?
Costume CO (1 year ago)
Hi Hairy Melon! I love your name. Yes, I will be doing a season 6 video of both Cersei and Sansa's costumes. As well, I very much appreciate your correction. It gets very complicated for me with the royals and the Roman numerals. Cheers, Heidi.

OMFG, I'm just noticing the gowns Sansa wears between her marriage to Tyrion and the Purple Wedding are often purple, I'm sure it's a reference to the Purple Wedding. Especially the one she wears when she's mourning her mother and brother: it's purple AND embroidered with grapevine leaves. Given that Lady Olenna poisoned Joffrey's wine and was born Olenna Redwyne... The foreshadowing was actually strong. Anyway, keep doing videos like this one, you're pretty awesome! <3 I'd like to see something about Jaime Lannister's outfits as well.

In medieval England,  only the royal families could wear purple and certain furs such as ermine.  Strict laws were passed restricting what the different levels of society could wear.  And obviously, it depended on what you could afford.

Did you say "the pale blue necklace I decined"

Costume Cinematografico Ah okay then 😊
Costume CO (1 year ago)
I think this is it: Of Sansa’s necklace, Clapton says, “I looked actually at lots of art deco and art nouveau necklaces…as well was inspired by the same period. It's actually very exciting, I very rarely design jewelry."
Costume CO (1 year ago)
Jojo Nova I'm not sure, I think I said pale blue necklace I designed, quoting Michele Clapton.

Really great video! I want to make one of Sansa's Costumes and this vid really helped me :) I think I'm going to make something from season 1, because I love the Winterfell style and it is one of the easier costumes she wears on the show, even thou her season 6 direwolf dress was really awesome!
Costume CO (2 years ago)
Thanks Jokia! You can also look at my pinterest page: https://www.pinterest.com/costumecinemato/. I have lots of the photos from the video too. I will be doing a season six video for Sansa in the new year so you can look for that.
