Throwing together a last-minute costume might not require standing in long lines at your local Spirit Halloween or Party City.

Instead, you can just head to IKEA.

An Esquire article states: “During a talk at the Getty Museum in Los Angeles, Michele Clapton, who designed the costumes for [Game of Thrones] Seasons One through Five and returned for this season, revealed the secret about the Night’s Watch furs. ‘These capes are actually IKEA rugs,’ she said, to applause. ‘We take anything we can. We cut, and then we shaved them, and then we added strong leather straps.’ ”

Yes, you read that right: Jon Snow’s famous fur comes from our favorite affordable Swedish furnishing store. And it only costs $14.99.

IKEA has even released instructions on how to put the look together. And, with only three steps total, it looks like their easiest assembly ever.
