Look out, Westeros! Pugs are coming to take over your Seven Kingdoms with cuteness, and they mean business. The Pugs of Westeros were caught wearing the costumes of the stars of Game of Thrones and making plans to steal all the dog treats in the realm. They invaded with the help of blinkbox. The fourth season of HBO’s popular series is headed to the U.K. streaming service, and they brought in the herd of pugs to celebrate. And by herd, we mean three pugs who just changed costumes a few times.
The sweet and tolerant pugs named Blue, Bono, and Roxy belong to Phillip and Sue Lauer. The couple has been dressing up their dogs for seven years. Past photo shoots have had the trio of pugs wearing costumes from the Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit, donning capes and crowns like royalty, and putting on studded jackets to look like rock stars. Mrs. Lauer has a degree in fashion design and makes all the costumes, sometimes spending up to 20 days on a single outfit.
For the Game of Thrones video with blinkbox, she crafted miniature versions of the ensembles worn by Daenerys Targaryen, Jon Snow, Tyrion Lannister, Robert Baratheon, Oberyn Martell, and more. I’m ready for these pugs to step in next season.
The making-of video is precious:
