The Department of Justice on Tuesday charged an Iranian national with allegedly hacking into HBO, dumping a selection stolen files, and attempting to extort the company by ransoming a treasure trove of the company’s content. This summer, hackers released a bevy of internal HBO files, included scripts for Game of Thrones and full, unaired episodes of other shows.

SPECIAL TIP UPDATE!

Escaping Harvey Weinstein was a ‘cat-and-mouse game,’ says Katherine Kendall

HARI SREENIVASAN: Let’s turn to the continuing fallout and reaction to the Harvey Weinstein story.

Yesterday, Weinstein resigned from the board of his production company following numerous revelations of sexual harassment and several allegations of assault.

More than three dozen women have said Weinstein harassed them. While Weinstein has admitted to behaving inappropriately, he has said he didn’t physically assault anyone.

One of those women is Katherine Kendall. She was a 23-year-old actress who met Weinstein in 1993. She alleges that he invited her to his apartment in New York, where, she says, he took off his clothes and asked for a massage.

As other actresses began coming forward about their painful experiences, she also went public with her own story.

She joins me now from Los Angeles.

First, thanks for joining us.

And I don’t want to relive something that’s painful for you, but you are taking a public stance on it.

For people who don’t know your story, what happened?

KATHERINE KENDALL, Actress/ Photographer: Well, I was you know, a young actress, and I had had a formal meeting at the Miramax office earlier that day.

And then, at the end of the meeting, which I thought went really well, he invited me to come to screenings. He said: “Welcome to the Miramax family. You know, come to premieres, screenings, et cetera. In fact, there’s one this afternoon. Would you like to come?”

And I said, “Sure.”

And I ended up going to see a movie with him. It ended up just being a movie, not a screening, but the film “Red Rock West.” And, you know, that’s right when I had this sort of sinking feeling that something wasn’t going right.

And then, after the movie, we walked for a few blocks. And he said he needed to go up to his apartment to get something, and would I just come with him real quick? And I sort of said no, and we went back and forth on that for a minute. It was sort of a negotiation with him always, trying to sort of stand my ground, but then be convinced it was OK.

I did go into his apartment. Once there, we talked for a long time about art and movies. And I felt like he was treating me like an intellect.

And I felt like the meeting was going really well, and sort of continued. I didn’t feel unsafe once I was in there. And, at one point, then, he got up to go to the bathroom. And he came back in a robe and asked me to give him a massage.

And I was extremely uncomfortable. And I was like, oh, God, no, I’m not comfortable with that. And we went back and forth on that.

And then he went back to the bathroom again, and came back this time completely naked. And, you know, that changed it entirely for me, too. It just took it to the next place. It was completely disorienting. And I was scared, you know? I was really scared.

And then it became sort of a cat-and-mouse game of, like, how am I going to get out of there?

And I’m — it’s hard to make sense of what someone is trying to do to you when they’re fully naked, and they’re…

HARI SREENIVASAN: Yes.

KATHERINE KENDALL: You know, I’m 105 pounds. He’s a large man standing between me and the door.

And, I mean, I felt very resolute, like, I will definitely get out of here somehow. But I’m not — I’m not sure — I’m not sure what’s going to happen here. You know, a lot was going through my head.

And he said, well, if you won’t give me a massage, will you at least show me your breasts? And it was just — you know, it was, all in all, an extremely humiliating experience for me.

And even though I got away, I felt like something had still — like something horrible had just happened to me.

HARI SREENIVASAN: You know, in the immediate aftermath, did you tell someone about it? Because you have said before that you felt ashamed…

KATHERINE KENDALL: I did.

HARI SREENIVASAN: … even though you were the victim.

KATHERINE KENDALL: I did.

It’s really interesting how that happens. And I think — you know, I’m older now, and I have done some work on myself. And I have learned that a lot of people feel that way.

It’s — it’s not — it wasn’t just me. But the just me feeling that this is my fault, this must have only happened to me, there’s something wrong with me, is so common when someone perpetrates against you.

HARI SREENIVASAN: What were the…

KATHERINE KENDALL: And I did. I told my mom.

And I told some good friends. But, you know, one of the things that happened was, I didn’t want them to tell anybody. You know, people wanted to help me, but they didn’t know how, and I didn’t want them to try too hard, because I didn’t want it to backlash.

I was scared. And I think that it’s important to remember that we don’t really come from a culture that supports women in talking about sexual harassment, in my — in my experience, that is. And, you know, I just haven’t felt like it was something I was going to get support on…

HARI SREENIVASAN: You know, how long…

KATHERINE KENDALL: … in the bigger picture.

HARI SREENIVASAN: Yes.

How long did this feeling last? Or, I guess, what are the longer-term ripple effects here? Did it shake your confidence in your abilities?

KATHERINE KENDALL: I think it did. I think it did. I think it did.

I think it made me feel like, wow, you know, that was a wash. He wasn’t interested at all in what I had to say, or, you know, he didn’t see any talent there or intellect there. He was assessing the situation the whole time for something else.

And I think that — that did hurt. You know, I wish it didn’t.

HARI SREENIVASAN: Yes.

KATHERINE KENDALL: But he had produced so many movies that I thought were wonderful. And it was — it’s hard when someone has made art that you love, and how do you stay attached to liking their art, but feeling conflicted about them?

And, yes, I think it does have long-term effects. I think you tuck it away. And then, for me, also, I realized that it came back when I would see his name or see him in person. I would start to sort of tremble all over again.

I mean, I wouldn’t think about him on a daily basis or anything for years, and then I would see him, and I would think, oh, I don’t feel well. I got to get out of here.

HARI SREENIVASAN: Right.

KATHERINE KENDALL: You know, it would bring up so much emotion.

And the most recent one was the woman in New York, the Italian model. I felt so, so enraged when I saw what happened there, and that they sort of — the police had him, and that then he got away. And then she was being dragged through the press as somebody who just, you know, wanted a payout, et cetera.

HARI SREENIVASAN: You know, in the wake of that, there was — a friend of yours had tweeted, “At some point, all the women who have been afraid to speak out about Harvey Weinstein are going to have to hold hands and jump.” This was back in 2015.

And from your Twitter account, you said, “Agreed.”

It seemed like you almost had the opportunity to come forward.

What made you want to come forward now? Has this become a turning point in the industry?

KATHERINE KENDALL: This is a turning point. It’s a turning point.

There are so many times when I thought about it, and then felt like — there were times when I thought about it and said, well, I have nothing to lose, I will just do it. And then I thought, I — I just didn’t have the strength or the courage yet.

And I think somebody like Jodi Kantor doing the story for The New York Times, the fact that she thought it was a story at all was startling to me and made me feel like, wow, something is going to be done.

And I knew she had told me — I mean, they were looking for women that this had happened to, because they’d been hearing rumors for so long that it happened to so many people. And she had told me other people were coming out.

And I thought, I can’t — when I watched Rose McGowan or any of the other actresses come forward, I just — or Ashley Judd — I just thought, they look strong to me, and I don’t want to be the one that stays silent.

HARI SREENIVASAN: Well, Katherine Kendall…

KATHERINE KENDALL: I want to stand beside them.

HARI SREENIVASAN: Katherine Kendall, thank you very much for speaking with us.

And, hopefully, there are other people that are empowered by you coming forward.

KATHERINE KENDALL: I hope so. Thank you.

How to Watch Game 7 of the World Series Tonight for Free

It’s been an absolutely epic World Series thus far, so it’s fitting that the Houston Astros and Los Angeles Dodgers will play a deciding Game 7 on Wednesday at 8:20 p.m. (E.T.). The Dodgers beat the Astros 3-1 on Tuesday night to tie the series at 3-3, and the Dodgers will host the winner-takes-all game tonight in Los Angeles.

The 2017 World Series is making history in several ways. The two teams have already combined to break the record for most homeruns ever in a World Series, with a total of 24 so far, including seven in Game 5 and an all-time-high eight homeruns in Game 2. If the Astros win tonight, it will be the first-ever World Series championship for the franchise; a Dodgers’ victory will bring the team its first crown in nearly three decades. The 2017 World Series is also clearly a showdown between two Major League Baseball powerhouses, marking the first time since 1931 that both teams won more than 100 games during the regular season, with 101 wins for the Astros and 104 for the Dodgers.

How to Watch Game 7 Live

Fox has broadcasted all 2017 World Series games, and it will air Game 7 tonight across the country. The first pitch is scheduled for 8:20 p.m. (E.T.), 5:20 p.m. (P.T.). Yu Darvish is expected to start on the mound for the Los Angeles Dodgers, while Lance McCullers Jr. should be the starting pitcher for the Houston Astros.

To watch the game on regular TV, simply tune in to your local Fox channel. You don’t necessarily need a cable TV package. Broadcast networks like Fox are available for free in most areas if you have a digital antenna.

How to Live-stream World Series Game 7

If you don’t have a TV, or don’t have access to one on Wednesday, check out one of several streaming TV services that make it possible to live-stream Game 7 online. Luckily, these services all have free trial periods, so you can watch on your preferred device without paying a dime. Depending on your choice of service, you might be able to watch via video game console, as well as Apple TV, Amazon Fire TV, Roku, XBox, Android, and Chromecast, among other options.

Here are services live-streaming the World Series tonight:

DirecTV Now starts at $ 35 per month for a package that comes with 60+ channels, including local Fox stations airing the World Series in more than 50 U.S. markets. New customers can sign up and watch for free for seven days.

FuboTV is a new sports-centric streaming service that lets you live-stream over 70 channels, including the NFL Network, NBA TV, NBCSN, and several Fox stations—including the main Fox broadcast of the World Series. New subscribers can watch for free for seven days during a trial period. After that, it costs $ 19.99 per month, and then goes up to $ 39.99 after two months.

Hulu Live packages, which start at $ 39.99 after a free seven-day trial period, come with live-streams of Fox and other broadcast channels.

Playstation Vue offers several streaming packages from $ 39.99 per month, and all are available for free during a five-day trial period. Take note that local Fox broadcasts are not available for all subscribers, however: According to CutCableToday.com, which offers a comprehensive guide to watching the World Series without cable, Fox live-streams are available from Playstation Vue only in 34 markets around the country.

Sling TV offers two different basic streaming packages, and the Sling Blue option comes with 40+ channels including Fox in most markets. Sling Blue costs $ 25 per month, and new subscribers can try out the service—and watch the World Series—for free for seven days.

YouTube TV is yet another streaming service that includes Fox in its packages. Prices start at $ 35 per month, but the service is available with a longer-than-usual free trial period—stretching 14 days before you’re charged. So, if you sign up today, you watch Game 7 tonight and check out everything else YouTube TV has to offer over the next two weeks, for free.

‘Ni No Kuni 2’s New Metagame Is as Fun as the Game

Ni No Kuni 2 has a new metagame to connect all the missions together, taking place on a world map. You’ll still have plenty of the bread and butter action RPG combat, but now there’s an entire continent to think about.

Battles with heroes vs monsters will be on the same, smaller scale, while these “field” battles could have cohorts of 20 or so under your command. Other elements, such as the familiars from Ni No Kuni, have been toned down.

I didn’t see any flying in this mode, but there’s plenty to think about on the X and Y axes alone. Your troops will be split up into different squads, and pressing L1 or R1 rotates the squads around your hero.

Naturally you’ll want your melee squads facing whatever oncoming threat there is, and your archers in the back — but it won’t always be that simple. Even in the introductory phase of this mode, enemies start spreading out and trying to flank.

Special abilities that go on cooldown are present, and these depend on which hero is leading the troops. I was able to call in an airstrike which utterly destroyed about four enemy squads that I had lured into clumping together.

Then there are the more basic abilities, such as “charge,” or “fire volley,” which can be used at any time.


Ni No Kuni 2 villain

Over the course of the game, you’ll see the effects of your conquests reflected on the map. You can siege strategic enemy placements, as they can yours. Securing different zones or resource points might provide valuable materials for the greater war effort.

There will also be more monarchical duties such as giving people jobs and deciding how the kingdom will develop. It’s a much larger scale for Level-5, and it was a lot of fun to play.

It was described as a metagame to me, but it seemed fun enough to warrant its own mode by itself. We’re yet to see just how much Ni No Kuni 2 will play with this format, but a good variety of troops and puzzling battlefield circumstances could make it quite memorable.

These places in Scotland look like they came from “Game of Thrones”

ADVERTISEMENT


Game of Thrones is just about our all-time favorite TV show, and we simply can’t wait for the final season. Whether you’re up to date, or late to the party, this multi-layered show has so much to offer TV audiences. One of the first things you may have noticed when you first watched the show is how stunning it looks. Many of the locations in the show are some of the most staggeringly beautiful places.

We bet you’re dying to know where some of those magical locations, like The Eyrie, and Winterfell were shot. Well, Northern Ireland is a popular place for filming on the show, as well as Scandinavia. But, there are also place in Scotland that look like they could have come right out of the hit HBO show. We’ve listed five for you to browse, and, don’t worry, unlike Jon Snow, we actually know what we’re talking about!

Craigmillar Castle – Winterfell

The North remembers! Winterfell is the home of the Stark family, and one of the defining strongholds of the North, and, don’t you think Craigmillar Castle in Edinburgh looks exactly like it?! The actual castle used is Castle Ward in Northern Ireland, altered slightly using CGI. But, we think Craigmillar could easily have filled in; Bran would definitely have loved climbing the towers of this beautiful place!

Logan Botanic Garden – The Water Gardens of Dorne

The Dornish live across the Narrow Sea and have some of the most beautiful landscapes in all the GoT universe. To capture the feel of House Dorne’s lavish grounds, the producers traveled to Seville in Spain, but there was no need! They could have just visited these incredible gardens in the south of Scotland instead – don’t they just look every inch the tropical paradise?! In fact, this place looks so amazing you’d never even know you were in Scotland.

The Storr – The Vale of Arryn and The Eyrie

A big part of Littlefinger’s scheming, The Vale of Arryn and The Eyrie are hugely iconic and atmospheric locations in the show. The producers chose the stunning backdrop of Iceland to get their location, though they could equally have used the lush, sprawling mountains of the Isle of Skye. The Storr is the sort of location that is just crying out to be in a high fantasy movie or TV show; we hope they use it soon!

Culzean Castle – Casterly Rock

The beacon of House Lannister, Casterly Rock is frequently used in the show and is shown to be a stronghold, highly prized by Tywin Lannister and family. In the show, as you may already know, Castle Trujo in Spain is the actual colossus used for Casterly Rock. But, we have to be honest, we actually prefer this Ayrshire bastille, built way back in 1777. In fact, it could even have been used in the same way as Casterly Rock is used in the show!

Talisker Bay – Dragonstone Beach

You probably recall Dragonstone Beach as the place where Stannis Baratheon would go for walks to think and unwind when Season 3 got a bit much. It was also visited again more recently by Daenerys Targaryen and Tyrion Lannister, as the Khaleesi finally set eyes on her birthplace. Again, Spain was used as the real location – Muriola Beach in the Basque region, to be precise. Though we’re sure you’ll agree, the stunning Talisker Bay on the Isle of Skye is pretty much a dead ringer for the famed beach in the show.

Scotland has so much stunning landscape, and this makes it the ideal setting for Game of Thrones lookalikes! We know the producers did use some parts of Northern Ireland to film the show. Scotland was used for some of the first season, and, judging by these sensational locations, we wish they’d filmed all of it there!

Here’s Why Kit Harington Is the Key to the Release of Game of Thrones‘ Original Pilot

Game of Thrones showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss have openly stated that the HBO drama’s original pilot was a complete and total disaster. But in a recent interview with The Guardian, Kit Harington — who plays the one and only Jon Snow — revealed that he may be the key to fans finally getting to see the unaired series premiere.

Although Harington himself hasn’t even seen the episode — in which he was clean-shaven and wearing a wig — he explained that Benioff and Weiss have jokingly threatened to make it available to the public to embarrass their star.

“They say, if I ever piss them off too much, they’ll release it on YouTube,” he said. “Every now and then, they send me a screengrab, just as a threat.”

Of course, Harington’s fake mane wasn’t the only misguided aesthetic choice made by the creators. While working on Thrones‘ seventh season, Benioff told TIME that they regretted originally making Peter Dinklage’s hair “Eminem blond” to match George R.R. Martin’s description of Tyrion Lannister in the author’s A Song of Ice and Fire series.

15 Best ‘Game of Thrones’ Halloween Costume Ideas

With Halloween just around the corner, we list our top 15 Game of Thronesinspired costumes to dress up as this year. Whether you’re aiming for terrifyingly creepy, (we’re talking blood, guts, severed limbs; the whole GoT shebang) or if you’re just wanting to look fabulous this October, we’ve got all your Halloween costume inspiration here.

The Unsullied


unsullied game of thrones  Halloween costume idea

The Unsullied is definitely a costume for the “lads” night out on Halloween. It’s pretty simple too. Get your mates to join in or, if you’re pairing up with your Mrs. this Halloween, why not try a Grey Worm and Missandei joint costume.

What You’ll Need:

  • Black clothing (black pants and sleeveless black top)
  • Armour pieces — these could be made from card
  • Captain America-ish shield covered in aluminium foil
  • Massive-ass spear
  • Helmet — spray-painting a Roman gladiator helmet black could work

The Hound


the hound

Whether you want to go all-out armour gear, complete with Sandor Clegane’s dog helmet, or just dress in a casual villager’s outfit, the symbol of this costume would be the burn that covers almost half of The Hound’s face. Make the scar gruesome, realistic and gross to make a big impact.

What You’ll Need:

  • Rough, brown waistcoat or sleeveless jacket with a cream shirt and trousers
  • If you have the skills, utilise latex and pink face paint to create that awful scar and it will look even better if it spreads beyond your hairline (use a bald cap)
  • If you’re not that creative, even sticking small pieces of foam or paper on your face and painting it will give your skin that patchy look
  • As with most of these Game of Thrones Halloween ideas, the costume isn’t complete without a greasy hairpiece, and Clegane’s is very tangled and messy
  • Throw a ragged beard in there if you have time.

Poisoned Joffrey


joffrey-death game of thrones

You will make more than a few people uncomfortable dressed as a poisoned, dead man walking. For maximum impact with this Game of Thrones-inspired Halloween costume, focus on the make-up for the dying Joffrey here.

What You’ll Need:

  • Blonde colour wash-out hairspray — the lightest one you can get your hands on
  • Some trousers, top, and jacket in light colours (golden, silver, yellow, orange) to show royalty
  • If you’re good with a sewing kit, add detail with some elegant gold embroidery on your sleeves or chest
  • Pale, dried foundation to show that you’re dead
  • Bloodshot contacts
  • Fake blood for your nose and mouth.

The Mountain


The Mountain-Game-of-Thrones

Gregor Clegane is yet another dead man — or is heIf you have the right build and height, this Halloween costume can be very intimidating. Remember not to talk too much to make your costume even more spooky. This can be a terrifying zombie outfit.

What You’ll Need:

  • A shiny helmet spray painted gold
  • Armour pieces. These can be made out of card, again sprayed gold (the shoulder pads and torso are the most important)
  • Red contact lenses.

Tyrion Lannister After the Battle of the Blackwater


tyrion game of thrones fresh scar

With this look, you want to focus all your attention on that ghastly scar Tyrion received during the Battle of the Blackwater in Season 2. Make this cut your pride and glory which should spread right across your face. Wear it freshly slashed or healing slowly with the Medieval-style stitches and dressing. Bandaging half your face like Tyrion had after the battle would also look incredibly creepy.

This classic scar is a big part of Tyrion’s character and would turn Game of Thrones fans’ heads. Much like the dying Joffrey Halloween costume, the scar is really all you need to make a big impact.

What You’ll Need:

  • Even if you’re not a master of prosthetics, you can easily use adhesive glue to stick some black cotton or string to your face to make it look like stitches
  • Fake blood
  • Bandages (blood-soaked and aged)

The Sand Snakes


sand snakes arguing intro game of thrones helen sloan

Bastard daughters and deadly assassins, this costume can be pulled off with two of your friends and some stunning colour coordination. All three of you will look irresistibly poisonous as Dorne‘s Sand Snakes for Halloween.

What You’ll Need:

  • Brown boots
  • Gold or brown dress — you can even buy some gold material to wrap around yourself. Remember it’s warm in Dorne so make sure whatever you wear is thin and loose
  • Embroider some gold detail on a brown belt or use a gold craft pen or marker to draw it on
  • Very long spears, knives, whips, and machetes.

The Crows and The Wildlings

Just hope that it’s cold at your Halloween party because you’re going to be roasting in this costume. If there’s a costume competition going on, split into two teams, one team dressing as Free Folk and the other dressing as The Watchers on the Wall, and fight to the death over who gets to be Jon Snow.

What You’ll Need:

For the Wildlings

  • Grey trousers and top
  • Winter coat or customise a regular coat with pieces of furry material
  • Snow boots — walk around in the snow for 30 years and then you will get the perfect, antique, gritty look. If you don’t have 30 years to spare, go traipsing around in the snow, mud and/or dirt in your street for a while to scuff them up.

For the Night’s Watch

  • Black leather (most importantly gloves and belt)
  • Super long black cape with the furry hoods
  • Accessorise with Jon Snow’s Valyrian steel sword which you can buy online.

Jaqen H’ghar


jaqen-hghar-game-of-thrones

Follower of The Many-Faced God, Jaqen H’ghar is the pinnacle of mystery, so don’t forget that less is more. Don’t worry too much about your makeup here; plain and pale complemented with a vacant expression is all you need. A man is no one without this costume.

What You’ll Need:

  • An oversized cloak with a large hood. Make it look dirty and aged by spraying it grey or soaking it in coffee for a day or so
  • A reddish wig with the all-important silver highlight which you can paint on yourself.

Melisandre


melisandre game of thrones

Want to dress as a witch this Halloween? You still can with Melisandre. You don’t need a witch’s hat or broom for this look but swap those for red hair, red boots, and a red dress.

What You’ll Need:

  • A long red wig or extensions
  • Rosy cheeks, red lipstick, and on fleek eyebrows
  • Red boots and dress
  • To make fellow Game of Thrones fans notice, perfect the look with a replica of Melisandre’s beautiful, ruby gem choker that keeps her young and beautiful and hides her decrepit, old-lady form.

The Dothraki


dothraki game of thrones

You may be confident enough to dress up as the buff Khal Drogo, complete with blue body paint, but, if not, there are millions of Dothraki extras you can draw your inspiration from. Bonus points if you own a horse.

What You’ll Need:

  • Armoured kilt — you can attach pieces of card to an old medium-length skirt
  • Card torso pieces and wrist cuffs
  • Bandages to wrap around your knuckles
  • Spears and large swords
  • A stick-on black beard plaited or in a ponytail
  • Dark liner to define those deep eyes
  • Finish off the look with casual sandals

The Stone Men


jorah mormont greyscale game of thrones

Whether you’re dressing as Jorah Mormont, Princess Shireen Baratheon, or Stone man number three, this one is guaranteed to freak people out. You may want to think about having crazy eyes and yellow teeth if you want to look fully infected with the greyscale disease. However, make sure to keep the infection subtle but shocking on one side of your face if you’re dressing as lil’ Shireen. Tip: don’t moisturise for a couple of weeks.

What You’ll Need:

  • It’s all about the makeup here; apply a dusty, grey foundation to start
  • Make your skin and lips look dead and cracked with liquid latex or even try applying toothpaste to your entire face or body and leave it to crack up. Make sure to paint it grey afterward
  • Grey, loose shirt, trousers/leggings, and gloves
  • Colour your teeth with yellow teeth stain if you are dressing as an infected Stone man and maybe even add some bloodshot contacts.

Children of the Forest



This Game of Thrones Halloween costume can be incredibly intricate but you will look supernatural, alien-like, and scary all at the same time. If trees could walk and talk, they would be The Children of the Forest, so we want to go for a natural, green look.

What You’ll Need:

  • Start with plain underclothes — shirts and leggings can be brown, green, grey or cream
  • Use brown rope as vines and wrap them around your legs, arms, and torso (you can even get real leaves or flowers to stick to these ropes)
  • Braided/plaited hair
  • Green face paint; you could draw trunk-like patterns on your skin with a makeup pencil
  • Black or dark green lipstick
  • Green contacts.

Daenerys Targaryen



Why dress up as a monster, when you can dress up as the stunning Queen of Dragons? Work that long, silver wig, and draw on those thick eyebrows. If the look you’re going for this year is less sexy and more gory, then maybe a blood-covered Daenerys after she ate that horse’s heart would be perfect for you. Anyone who can persuade their mate to wear a dragon costume alongside this gets bonus points.

What You’ll Need:

  • A gorgeous full-length blue dress
  • Red Riding Hood-like cloak but in blue
  • Add more detail with dragon symbols on jewellery and don’t forget Dany’s wedding ring
  • Blue contact lenses
  • Long, wavy blonde wig
  • Thick eyebrows and extreme lashes.

Wights


game of thrones wight

This is the ultimate zombie costume. The ticking time bomb antagonists to the entire series, the cold, dead, bloodied figures, the terrifying White Walkers and their reincarnated slaves, Wights, are the pinnacle of horror. If you want to pull off looking like a Wight, you will need to have obvious, open wounds and even missing limbs. Wights always appear dirty, so don’t forget to roll around in the mud to develop the decaying flesh look. The more blood, the better.

What You’ll Need:

  • Pale foundation
  • Contact lenses (dull blue)
  • Fake blood to cover yourself with
  • Create open wounds with latex, makeup, and blood — even lodge some weapons into these to make it look more gruesome. Have blood seeping from your mouth and nose
  • You can also wear a skeleton costume. After all, you’re dead.

White Walkers


Game of Thrones White Walker

White Walkers are a little more complicated to replicate than Wights, with their silver skin and icicle-looking hair, but will end up way creepier too.

What You’ll Need:

  • Silver, shiny face paint
  • Battle armour — this can be made out of grey card
  • Bright blue contact lenses
  • Icy horns and claws
  • A long silver wig

Jason Momoa Has Apologized for His Game of Thrones Rape Joke

Jason Momoa has something to say about that 2011 Comic-Con joke.

The Game of Thrones actor had his words come back to haunt him after a video from the show’s San Diego panel recently started making headlines in the wake of sexual assault allegations against Harvey Weinstein and, closer to home, his Justice League costar Ben Affleck apologizing for a 2003 groping incident.

“As far as sci-fi and fantasy, I love that genre because there are so many things you can do, like rip someone’s tongue out of their throat and get away with it and rape beautiful women,” said the actor to some crowd laughter about his barbarian warrior character Khal Drogo.

Now Momoa is opening up about the incident in a statement on Instagram.

“I awoke in Australia to the justified reactions by many people to a distasteful joke I made years ago in Hall H for which I am sorry,” Momoa said. “I am still severely disappointed in myself at the insensitivity of my remarks that day. I know my sincerest apology now won’t take away those hurtful words. Rape and sexual harassment can reach anyone and I have seen first hand its painful torment among members of my own family and friends.”

He continued: “I made a truly tasteless comment. It is unacceptable and I sincerely apologize with a heavy heart for the words I said.”

Vice President Mike Pence Leaves Football Game After Players Kneel During National Anthem

Vice President Mike Pence left a football game in Indiana Sunday after players from the San Francisco 49ers reportedly knelt during the national anthem.

“President Trump and I will not dignify any event that disrespects our soldiers, our Flag, or our National Anthem,” Pence said in a series of tweets. “While everyone is entitled to their own opinion, I don’t think its too much to ask NFL players to respect the flag and our national anthem.”

Pence, the former governor of Indiana, was attending a game of the Indianapolis Colts, who were playing a home game against the San Francisco 49ers — Colin Kaepernick’s former team. It appeared only members of the 49ers knelt during the anthem, not the Colts, according to the Indianapolis Star. Pence pointed this discrepancy out in a tweet, posting a picture of himself and his wife Karen standing during the anthem, and writing, “We were proud to stand – with all our colts- for our soldiers, our flag, and our National Anthem.”

Last year, Kaepernick, who was playing as a quarterback for the 49ers at the time, routinely knelt during the National Anthem as a silent protest against racial injustice in America.

Kaepernick’s protest morphed into a kneeling movement last month after President Donald Trump sparked controversy when he referred to NFL players who took a knee during the anthem as “sons of bi—es” during a campaign rally in Alabama. More than 100 NFL players and owners linked arms and knelt before and during the anthem following Trump’s attack.

Trump said in a tweet that he had asked Pence to leave the stadium if any players kneeled during the national anthem, claiming such actions were disrespectful.

Want to Win the First Round of the Baseball Playoffs? Just Win Game One

The first round of the 2017 baseball playoffs got underway Thursday, with the Houston Astros defeating the Boston Red Sox 8-2 and the Cleveland Indians blanking the New York Yankees 4-0. The National League division series, which is the first of three playoff rounds, gets underway Friday evening.

This bodes well for the Astros and the Indians, because, ever since Major League Baseball instituted the best-of-five division series in 1995, 63 of the 88 contests have gone to whichever team won the first game. If history is any guide, this means the two winners have a 72 percent chance of advancing to the league championship series, which, like the World Series, is a best-of-seven contest.

The following graphic shows all 88 contests colored by whether the winner of the first game won the series (green) or eventually lost (red), with circles for first-game wins at home and squares for first-game wins away.

While both the Astros and the Indians had the home-field advantage, the data suggests this doesn’t make much difference compared to the “first-win advantage.” Of the 63 teams that won the first game and went on to win the series, 31 started the series as the visiting team. Major League Baseball has alternated between whether the fifth game of the series, if the teams are tied 2-2 after four games, returns to the team with the home field advantage (a “2-2-1” model) or reduces travel time by staying at the other team’s stadium, a “2-3” model.

Of course, all hope is not lost for Red Sox and Yankees fans. While a best-of-five model stacks the odds against the team that loses the first game, there are plenty of exceptions. In 1995, for example, the Mariners lost the first two games to the Yankees and, facing elimination as the series shifted from New York to Seattle, won three straight games at home to go on to the American League Championship Series, which they lost to the Indians even though they won the first game in the second round.

‘Gerald’s Game’: A Twisted Rape Fantasy Gives Way to a Complex Study of Domestic Violence

Gerald’s Game, Stephen King’s 1992 novel about a woman who finds herself in perilously restrained circumstances, has long been considered unfilmable. Enter Mike Flanagan, whose prior work (Oculus, Hush) marked him as one of American cinema’s most confident and canny new horror voices, and whose adaptation of King’s tome is one of the most uniquely suspenseful offerings of the year. Premiering exclusively on Netflix Sept. 29, and starring a phenomenal Carla Gugino and Bruce Greenwood, it’s further confirmation of Flanagan’s expertise at intricately knotty terror—and, also, his gift for orchestrating psychological insanity, with his latest fixated on one woman’s grueling confrontation of unthinkable abuse.
