Here at the Tipsy Elves workshop, we work most of the time (that’s why we have to be constantly soused just to stay sane). But in our time off, we watch a lot of cable television. Lately, we’ve been completely fixated with Game of Thrones. Since we work in the chilly fashion industry, we’ve found ourselves wondering about the style choices of the cast.
That leads us to the obvious question: If you were a female character in Game of Thrones and you were invited to an ugly sweater party, which of our women’s ugly holiday sweaters or Christmas sleepwear for women would you choose? Below are our answers and some our favorite elegant Christmas sweaters for women to choose from.
This one is pretty obvious. The mother of dragons can only be envisioned in our T-Rex sweater. The giant lizard doesn’t have wings, but he’s still scary enough to terrorize a village full of peasants and carry off a kid or two (goat and human). The bare- shouldered cut of this royal blue sweater is right in character for the Khaleesi. Of course, it would be a little hot to wear out in the deserts where her followers roam, but we’re willing to overlook that discrepancy if you will. However, if it is too hot to wear a sweater, check out our Christmas underwear for women.
The annoyingly naïve eldest daughter in the Stark family does love her finery. Too bad she keeps getting paired with the wrong men. All she wanted was to marry Prince Charming and live happily ever after. Instead, she was wed against her will to Tyrion Lannister. Her unsuitable pint-sized suitor is depicted as the Romantic Yeti in a slightly furry version of everyone’s favorite sarcastic character. He’s holding a sprig of mistletoe, but it’s not Sansa he has in mind...
This wide-eyed ingénue is actually a skilled seductress, and her royal husbands always seem to end up dead not long after the nuptials. The Headless Snowman is her sweater of choice. The look on the snowman’s face reminds us of Joffrey as he’s choking to death on poisoned wine. It’s also what your fellow party-goers faces will look like when they see your hideous Christmas sweater.
Brienne of Tarth
This proud warrior woman is tired of having to work twice as hard as a knight to get the same respect. She’s used to wielding a sword and is more than a match for any man in the seven kingdoms. Her sweater is definitely the Snowman Nose Thief. That’s her with the extra “sword” as she proves what it takes to make it in a man’s world. Jaime Lanister is the other snowman pictured, and it looks like he’s lost more than a hand.
Catelyn Stark’s sister is the weird bird lady of the Eyrie (and protector of the Vale). She’s also 10 pounds of crazy in a 5 pound bag. The Happy Birthday Jesus sweater with its depiction of a white dove is the ideal design for this off-kilter character. After all, she thinks her son walks on water. If you don’t agree, she might send you through the Moon Door. Let your kooky side shine when you wear our ugly holiday sweaters for women. There are no rules!
