How to Dress a Sand Snake


Costume designer Michele Clapton shares how she crafted the outfits of Westeros' newest avengers – Nym, Tyene and Obara Sand.

Clapton: "I wanted a tough look for the Sand Snakes and tried to bring out elements of their individuality whilst also making them look like a team."

"The armour department created a series of stamps in different sizes, which were hammered into the leather to make the snakeskin texture. It was then tinted, aged and waxed.”

"The extended sole seems to represent the snake tongue, and the armour department stamped the leather."

"My favorite accessory is the snake wrap bracelet."
