Some days it’s hard to get enough George R.R. Martin in your life. You can watch Game of Thrones on HBO, read A Song of Ice and Fire on your Kindle, scour the author’s LiveJournal until your heart bursts with glee, and still you may find yourself wanting more. Because we always want what we can’t have — until now. GRRM obsessives, meet your new favorite item of clothing: the face-plastered legging.
The world is an exciting and terrifyingly enabling place, is it not?
What better way to remind us that winter is coming than the omnipresent reminder that is the author’s face affixed upon your pantaloons for all the world to see? Nothing says, “I’m a casual fan of an epic fantasy opus that distills the major themes of real life and imbues it into distinct characters and scenarios with bonus nudity, fighting, and mega-drama” than wearing the face of said collection of stories on your legs. In leggings. If imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, this has to win you some sort of metal, right?
They’ll cost you a pretty penny — $80 via Poprageous — but really, isn’t it worth it? Isn’t obsessive love of an author through the wearing of their face the most important thing you could do in a pair of leggings?
Don’t answer that last one, it’s rhetorical.
How many people do you think will be wearing these at San Diego Comic-Con this year? Leave your guesstimates in the comments.
