"The tassel is the skin of a python," weapons master Tommy Dunne reveals. "Then we have a blade that’s cut in and out on either side – basically like a tongue of a snake."
"This is my favorite armor this season," Costume Designer Michele Clapton shares, "We made lots of stamps, and actually created this snakeskin."
Sword master C.C. Smiff discusses filming with actor Hafthór Júlíus Björnsson in costume: “The whole shoot was so hot that it was like fighting in a wok. I know he’s one of the strongest men in the world, but his armor is still very, very heavy. Obviously he had to keep his proteins up and he did a great job.” (x)
