The Night Is Dark And Full Of TerrorsPosted: May 4, 2012 | |
It’s proof of how obsessed I am with Game of Thrones that when I first tried this maxi dress on, I immediately thought of Melisandre instead of, say, the Queen of Hearts from Alice in Wonderland. Even though the Queen of Hearts is a lot more likely wear black-and-red stripes than Melisandre, who wears all red. For those of you who don’t know GoT, Melisandre is a priestess (I think her official title is “shadow binder”) in the court of Stannis Baratheon. Who is Stannis? Check out this awesome comparison of GoT to the 2012 US Presidential Election – he’s the first guy. There was a rumor before season 2 casting that Christopher Eccleston was considered to play Stannis, which would have been a dream come true for me, but now, having seen Stephen Dillane in that role, I think they made a good choice. Eccleston is a little too intense.
… OK, this is turning into a GoT post. See what I mean when I said I’m obsessed? I will stop now.
