I'm still around, Royce poses this question: I'm a Game of Thrones geek myself, and also a home-brewer. A few weeks ago I created a new beer recipe that was my interpretation of what would be brewed at the wall for Jon Snow and the rest of the Night's Watch. It was a porter-like beer with debittered roasted wheat and dried tangerine peel, since those exotic kind of ingredients might find their way up to the wall along side fresh recruits. Maybe you're not a geeky as me, but if you were to craft a Game of Thrones inspired skin care product, what would it be? What lotion would Daenerys use? What shampoo would Sansa use?
You insult me, ser! "Maybe you're not as geeky as me..." I am the mother of geeks! (And your beer sounds awesome!)
A Song of Ice and Fire eye shadows - my favourite is still Winter is Coming - and my bracelet, which you can see above. This lip balm is called Hodor, but it can be used as a perfume stick for the Odour of Hodor.
So what kind of products would our favourite characters use? I thnk Daenerys might enjoy a mare's milk bath or anything with tons of sunscreen, which she could share with the Martell family in Dorne. Margery and Ser Loras might like some floral scented perfume sticks or fragrance sprays to remind them of their home in Highgarden. Brienne might enjoy something that helps with the chafing that must be happening with all that heavy armour. Jon Snow and his brothers in the Night's Watch might like some intense conditioner with coconut oil and a facial moisturizer with all three occlusive ingredients - dimethicone, cocoa butter, and allantoin - to protect their faces from the wind and snow beyond or at the Wall. Arya might not appreciate the offer of a degreasing shampoo and detangling conditioner after a long day of riding with the Hound, but I think her sister, Sansa, would love some really bubbly bubble bath and fairy dust. I think little Shereen Baratheon could benefit from a softening lotion with loads of shea butter and Vitamin E to help her with that greyscale. And little Rickon might enjoy Rickon's Smashed Walnut Exfoliating Scrub after a long day of walking or being carried by Osha.
What products could you see your favourite show's characters enjoying? I've been thinking about all kinds of products characters from Buffy or Firefly might enjoy! Share your thoughts!
As an aside, you're interested in some Game of Thrones themed music, check out Blind Guardian's album At the Edge of Time for War of the Thrones and Voice in the Dark. Other bands have related songs, like Hammerfall, but these two are my favourites!
