Family Has Epic 'Game of Thrones' Photo Shoot For Dad's Birthday

1.1K Reads

What do most men want when they turn 50?  A new watch, a fast car, a new house? Not Wim Tilkin. Wim, a Belgium resident, only had one request for his 50th birthday. He asked his wife and two children to travel to England to create the most epic 'Game of Thrones' photo shoot. 

In a conversation with Huffington Post, Wim breaks it down: 

“The story we made is ‘in style’ with the series but has nothing to do with the characters and the books,” 

In the photo series, dubbed “The Goron Chronicles,” Wim plays a Cornish lord named Goron who is forced by his king to fight evil forces threatening their kingdom. Goron goes to battle, and heroics, jealousy and encounters with witches ensue.

Wim even grew out his beard and hair for nine months before the photoshoot in order to resemble what he envisioned Goron to look like.

“People at work started to see me as a strange wildling and ignored me,” Wim told HuffPost.

Yet, all that preparation paid off. The family headed to Cornwall in late March for the magical photoshoot.

Behold, the epic "The Goron Chronicles."

Meet Cornish landlord Goron and his family.



Mordred, Goron’s king, summons him to his chamber and forces the lord to fight against evil forces threatening the kingdom.



Goron complies and prepares for battle.



Goron returns from battle a hero, which makes his king jealous.


Mordred sends Gwenora, a blue witch, to seduce Goron to the dark side.




Goron is enticed by Gwenora and turns him against his own people.


Goron is tortured by his betrayal.



Torn by his actions, Goron struggles to find the courage to fight Gwenora.



When he finally finds his strength …


… he confronts the witch.


And prevails.


Cersei better watch her back. There's a new king in town.
