I love when artists re-imagine characters into other popular styles. These A Song Of Ice And Fire covers were created by Noriko Meguro right after the series was translated to Japanese. Our favorite characters look wicked, and hauntingly beautiful. And some of them look down right sexy as hell (slightly NSFW in fact). The picture above is Jon Snow from A Game of Thrones, Part 1.

Check out all covers after the break.

Capture

Goodnight Moon is a sweet children’s book, but Goodnight Westeros is definitely not ideal for bedtime reading. Mashable has taken the classic story and retold it with a Game of Thrones spin, making it much, much darker.

See the video after the break.

rabbit castle

Wallace the rabbit is a cute bundle of fluff who has an owner that is a big Game of Thrones fan. He previously built a carrot Iron Throne for his bunny (which he ate), but this time he went with a whole Red Keep (which he ate).

Wallace’s rule over the Red Keep began with great promise. He surrounded himself with wise and vigorous advisors (almost exclusively comprised of his turds and hairballs) and effectively crushed the Raisin Rebellion soon after becoming king.

However, Wallace almost immediately spiraled into madness when he realized that his castle was made of cardboard and his throne of carrots. He experienced vivid hallucinations, hearing voices in his head that told him to either chew on or fully eat every object in his presence. Rumor was that he had hidden “wildfire” around our apartment in order to transmute into a dragon through a fiery baptism but I am pretty sure that didn’t happen.

In the end, when Wallace looked around and saw what his insane hunger had wrought, his joy definitely turned to ashes in his mouth.

Crazy or no, he’s just adorable.

Iron Throne

This toilet is worthy of a king thanks to the folks at Super-Fan Builds who have turned it into the Iron Throne. It is now the most impressive toilet in California and it belongs to Game of Thrones fan John Giovanazzi of Glendale where it can be found in the bathroom at his bar. It incorporates over 250 fake swords and even has a built-in toilet paper holder.

Meanwhile, the rest of us will probably have to make due with Iron Throne toilet wall graphics.

See it come together in the video after the break.

dragon sconce

The night may be dark and full of terrors, but your home can be filled with light and dragons.

Granted, it will cost you and it might be a little grandiose, but dark and terrors must be beaten!

Eventually George R.R. Martin will finish The Winds Of Winter, which is when these bookmarks will be just perfect. Each is made from bronze tone metal, paper, paint, and glass and features a different house sigil or a map of Westeros. The bookmarks measure 8cm with an 18mm picture at the top.

Summer is coming.

Get your garden ready with Game of Gnomes. It features a gnome armed with a trowel that we can only assume was forged with Valyrian steel.

Zelda-Mashup-Game-of-Thrones-Intro

This isn’t the first Zelda-themed reworking of the Game Of Thrones intro, but it might be the best. This time, the focus is on the Link to the Past world map.

Maybe HBO should talk to Nintendo about making that live action version of Zelda that everyone wants.

Check out the intro after the break…

Game of Thrones may be a fictional universe, but materials chemist Ryan Consell decided to take a stab at what it would take to mimic Valyrian steel in the real world. He writes:

One possible candidate is that Valyrian steel is a metal matrix composite, or MMC. These employ a metallic framework, which provides some toughness and tensile strength to the material, and have a much harder material, like a ceramic, embedded into them which could provide that indelible edge.

It sounds plausible, but the lack of Dragonfire and magic are going to make this one a little tough to replicate.
