A Fifty-Fifty ‘Game of Thrones’

Game of Thrones’ is one of the most special shows that we’ve seen in a long time, from the amazing plot lines and special effects to intricate costumes and makeup. And speaking of costumes and makeup; it unquestionably takes a lot of dirt powder, hair dye and wigs to bring the characters of George RR Martin’s book to life.

To show what producers have to change to bring these characters to life, Italian designer Gianfranco Gallo has published a series that merges photographs of ‘Game of Thrones’ actors in real life and in their character forms.

Sometimes it’s almost impossible to recognize these actors in real life from their appearance as characters.

“Game of Thrones goes to unseen heights to bring its characters to life and the result is that the characters are almost unrecognizable if you were to meet them in real life,” Gallo explains.

You may have even met some of these characters on the streets and failed to recognize them because of their immense makeup and costumes as cast members. No wonder its been nominated for an Emmy Award for best costume and makeup every year since it first premiered five years ago.
