Like I need a new time suck, but my son has gotten me obsessed with Game Of Thrones.
I am now on the second book and he is on the fifth and we are watching the series. Now I am not into fantasy films/books at all. It's just not my thing and this is what I call fantasy light.
What I really like about watching the HBO series is the scenery, costumes and styling. I would have absolutely no desire to live in Medieval times...I wouldn't last 5 minutes, but the gowns, the gold, the jewels, I could handle.
One of my favorite characters is Daenerys Targaryen.
Young, hot, tough, and earthy
Her living quarters at one point in the show was this:
That is definitely not glamping.
I am thinking modern day Daenerys would hang out in something like this:
After certain tragic situations, Daenerys morphs into this look:
I can't even take how beautiful this is.
In this look she has stopped camping and is more at a club med type of place:
And she hangs out with people like this:
And wears jewelry like this:
So I'm thinking modern day cleaned up Daenyers would live in something like this:
So if you enjoy watching/reading about the issues of social hierarchy, religion, loyalty, corruption, sexuality, civil war, crime, and punishment, then this is for you...and there are really cute guys in it.
