A Musical Memorial to All the Dead Game of Thrones Characters

Remember Game of Thrones season 1, when all the major characters were still alive? The ladies of Not Literally are back with another pop culture parody video, this time using Gotye to pay tribute to “A Character I Used to Know.” Spoilers for season 1.

Now that we’ve gotten through the Red Wedding, we need a version of this video that’s ten minutes longer and involves more drunken cursing at George R.R. Martin. Many a bottle of wine lost its life that night in front of the TV.

Historical Disney Princesses in Period Accurate Dresses

Historical Disney Princesses In Period Accurate Dresses 570x799 SR Geek Picks: A Game of Thrones Musical, 10 Doctor Strange Facts, Up + Doctor Who & More!

Here’s an interesting take on the Disney princesses that alters their existing gowns into period-accurate costumes. DeviantArtist Claire Hummel researched different periods and then made adjustments so the dresses would fit a specific time in history. She even explains how she altered each dress. Of Ariel from The Little Mermaid, she says:

” ‘The Little Mermaid’ is hard to place from a time period standpoint — Grimsby’s wearing a Georgian getup, Ariel’s pink dress with the slashed sleeves subscribes to several eras from the Renaissance to the 1840s, Eric is … Eric.

“I went with Ariel’s wedding dress as a starting point since those gigantic leg-o-mutton sleeves (so embarrassingly popular in ’80s wedding fashion) were a great starting point for an 1890s evening gown. It’s also not unfeasible that Eric’s cropped tailcoat could be from the same era, so I’m sticking with my choice. PLUS, Ariel with Gibson girl hair? COME ON IT IS AWESOME.”

  1. Adventure time is not for kids! Sheesh.

  2. after seeing that pic of Dr Strange, I can totally see Jim Caviezel playing that part

    • I think he was tipped to play Superman a few years ago. He’d have been great. He’s aged a bit recently, so I think he’d be perfect for Doctor Strange.

      • two words: Viggo Mortenson

        • Make sense.. he has strong resemblance with Viggo Mortenson :)

      • I’ve said for years that Jim Caviezal would be good! Man the picture definitely solidified my past thoughts!

  3. that octopus tardis is wierdly awesome
