A White Walker costume component from the HBO television series Game of Thrones, and the George R. R. Martin novel series. The appearance of the White Walkers in the TV series isn’t quite the same as in the books. They weren’t fully revealed until the Season 2 finale, only quick shots mostly in the shadows in the premiere episode of Season 1. Freeze-frame shots of this display an early working-model design for the White Walkers, but given that it only flashed on-screen for a fraction of a second, this may never have been intended as their final appearance. This early design was almost skeletal, without noses. There was a complete redesign of the White Walkers between the barely glimpsed early concepts in Season 1, and the fully revealed version introduced in the Season 2 finale: “The producers and creatives were not happy with the White Walker costumes from season one; they wanted to redesign the look and it took a bit longer than expected.” Only one full version of the redesigned White Walker costume was made by the Season 2 finale, thus the large shot of multiple White Walkers in the shot is just one stunt man doubled up many times.
This costume component is a right greave from a costume worn in Season 1. Made of hard resin and weathered by production. Marked with pen “Paul R” on the inside. Fitted with brown leather straps and button snaps. Measuring approximately 15 inches in length, this costume piece is in excellent production used condition.
This item comes with a Hero Prop Certificate of Authenticity.
