Watching Game of Thrones and don’t know your Starks from your Greyjoys? Well we’re here to help with a little guide to the families of Game of Thrones, a who’s who of Westeros. Enjoy Part 1 of our guide and you can find Part 2 here. Beware, there will be SPOILERS…
“The youngest of the Great Houses, born during the Wars of Conquest. Its founder, Orys Baratheon, was rumoured to be Aegon the Dragon’s bastard brother. Orys rose through the ranks to become one of Aegon’s fiercest commanders. When he defeated and slew Argilac the Arrogant, the last Storm King, Aegon rewarded him with Argilac’s castle, lands, and daughter. Orys took the girl to bride, and adopted the banner, honors and words of her line. The Baratheon sigil is a crowned stag, black, on a golden field. Their words are ‘Ours Is The Fury’.”
King Robert Baratheon Stannis Baratheon Renly Baratheon
It’s time for my weekly meme appearance and the comedy that ensues due to some of the memorable moments of Game of Thrones Se6ep4. The memes on the back of these are brilliant, I think they get funnier and funnier every week.
The above image goes with the childishness that ensued with the small council meeting. It just felt like they were back in primary school with their little cliques. Glad this was the subject to a meme, it deserved it.
Fantastic! This guy is very sadistic and loves a good torture session, he’s even taken to torturing apples now and this amusing meme adding in the Theon reference as well. He can’t torture him (or cut any more body parts off) so he’s forced into torturing an apple. Although we all know how the end of this scene went so at least he managed to satisfy some of his sadistic urges!
Continuing with the theme from last weeks Game of Thrones Se6ep3 memes post, I laughed and enjoyed them so much that I thought I’d make it a weekly appearance. So without further ado here are my favourites from this week…
Rickon Stark is back yayyyyyy, in Ramsay hand, nooooo :O
The above photo depicts something that I’ve been thinking about for some time. There are a few characters that we haven’t seen for quite a while! I want to know their stories, I hope the creators bring back these soon!
These two come hand in hand and is exactly what I was thinking whilst I was watching the show. Khal Moro is nowhere near as impressive, handsome, attractive or ripped as Khal Drogo!! These two memes epitomise exactly the way I was feeling when I saw Khal Moro for the first time.
I would like first to apologise for the image quality in this Game of Thrones post, I had to find them from random websites.
It has been 4 days since the screening of the second episode of Game of Thrones, so there has been enough time for everyone to watch the episode and see memes popping up all over the place, like microwave popcorn.
So we decided to share our favourites from this episode. The first image, above, made me laugh so much! Lovely bit of Photoshop to swap the baby for Pedigree dog food, as we all now know the baby became dog food not long after!! Brilliant.
Roose Bolton getting his comeuppance was amazing. The maniac who killed our beloved Robb Stark has karma come and bite him in the ass… think this meme sums it up quite nicely.
With the same reference to the first image, this is brilliant. The look on Ramsey’s face says it all! So simple yet so funny!
As you all know, we are HUGE Pop! Vinyl fans. We decided to pull together our Pop collections to form one huge, amazing Game of Thrones Pop! family! We went out into the wild and photographed them in their natural environments. Enjoy the awesomeness of these brilliant Game of Thrones Pops.
Jon Snow and his flame-haired lover Ygritte hiding out in their cave beyond the wall.
With only 3 days to go until the new season, I bet Game of Thrones is on your mind and you’re excited to see the new stories unfold. Now I’m sure we’ve all watched Game of Thrones thinking, “What would it be like if these characters were in the real world with us? What if Ned Stark has to take out the trash like the rest of us? What if Sansa had to go to school?” Some people have taken these thoughts one step further and created some amazing videos showing Game of Thrones characters interacting with the real world. Check it out.
Jon Snow at a Dinner Party
Ever wondered what would happen if you brought the boy who knows nothing to a dinner party? Wonder no more…
Melisandre at a Baby Shower
Ever wondered what would happen if you brought a baby sacrificing red priest to a baby shower?
Game of Thrones & Coldplay Musical
And finally, have you ever wondered what Sam Tarly looks like singing alongside King Robert and a few bastards?
Wow. I would pay to see that musical. I hope they make it once the TV series has come to an end. Hopefully more amazing videos like this will come out once the new series starts.
Continuing with this weeks Game of Throne theme. The next thing that I found which I found interesting was a lot of different art depicting different perspective of the show we all know and love and I am loving all of this Game of Thrones Fan Art!!!
Some spoilers to follow for those who haven’t yet completely caught up with the series!
The first one is the above image, which are the 8-bit pixel versions of different characters, created by Gleeson. These are so cool and I’m sure, if you are as much as a fan as us that you’ll be able to tell who’s who in this image. See if you can get them all!
Another pixelated version of the characters, however not in 8-bit format created by Boo Studios and selling a variety of different things, here, that you can keep around your home. Theses are more clearer who they are and I love the creativity and effort put into these.
In the build up to the new season to game of thrones we are carrying on with the trend of sharing with you our favourite Game of Thrones related items. This post will be of our favourite map art that we have found from around the net.
This above map is really cool, I like the flat design and the way it is laid out, the colour scheme to this is really fresh too. You can buy this one from here for £14.45.
This one is really interesting, created by J.E. Fullerton, it shows a lot of landmarks that are dotted all around the various kingdoms as well as other key activities that occur. It is quite packed full of items but is still really cool and gives off the middle age vibe that I’m sure the artist was aiming for.
Game of Thrones is coming back! And we are VERY excited. To celebrate the return of Game of Thrones, we will be putting on a series of posts about the popular show. Today, we are starting with Cosplay. Feast your eyes on some of the most wonderful Game of Thrones cosplay around.
