Costumes in Game of Thrones
The Game of Thrones TV adaptation inherently includes a visual element which was absent from the novels, presenting an entirely new level of worldbuilding to fill in: hidden insights and clues about cultures and characters within the story that were worked into them by lead Costume designer, Michele Clapton. Based on an exhaustive database of every public statement ever made in the past six years by Clapton and her design team about their work. What local materials are available to each kingdom for their costumes? How do fashions trick down from queens to prostitutes? How does fashion display faction allegiance?

The World of Ice and Fire
Since “A Game of Thrones” was first published in 1996, fans were tantalized by hints about the wider history of Westeros, and brief mentions of the lands beyond it. Nearly 20 years later, these questions were finally answered with a massive sourcebook, The World of Ice and Fire (2014) – presented as an in-universe history textbook, Martin himself estimates that every chapter could sustain a full book narrative unto itself. The World book came out while I-CON was on break since 2012, so now we gather to explain how it was made and examine its revelations, and their impact on the franchise.

Charity Auction
Every year, I-CON holds a charity auction and other fundraising endeavors to help support a local charity in line with a cause I-CON holds dear. In the last few years, we have lost a number of members, programming participants, and guests to Cancer, so this year we are proud to be donating the proceeds from the charity auction to “Hope & Heroes,” a charity that funds the life-saving work on childhood cancer and blood disorders at Columbia University Medical Center. We hope that the proceeds help these real life heroes continue their important work.
