Is it just me or does Sansa/Alayne’s hair from the new trailer look just like Catelyn’s hair style?

Here’s a crappy screenshot I took from the new trailer (if anyone has a better one I’d love to have it!).

Here’s a picture of Catelyn’s hair via this website.  The bottom three pictures are of someone’s interpretation of the hair style so they look a little different but the actual screen caps look so similar!  Both Sansa and Catelyn have a thin, upper rope braid that comes together in to one that eventually turns in to a thick, classic 3-strand braid.

Now I want to know if Sansa decided this hair style for herself as a way to stay connected to her family, if she chose it because she’s trying to emulate her mother (much like how she tried to match Cersei’s style when she first came to court then shifted more towards Margaery’s style when Margaery came to King’s Landing), if she chose this style for herself as a way of sucking up to/manipulating Petyr, or if Petyr chose the style for Sansa as a grooming technique and a way to turn her in to a younger, prettier Catelyn.

Once again, as much as D&D decide to screw everything up by throwing source material and characterization to the wind, the costume department continues to go above and beyond in their thoughtfulness by portraying the characters through clothing and hair.

I was tagged by the lovely fat-walda ♥

1) Why did you choose your URL?

Because Sansa. And Alayne. And Sansa.

2) What is your middle name?

I don’t have any! Middle names aren’t that usual here in Spain (maybe because we get both our parents surnames, and it would a mess? Lol, I have no idea.) I’m just María :)

3) If you could own a fairytale/fictional pet, what would it be?

A direwolf! And I would train her to eat from my hand, like Sansa did with Lady :)

4) Favorite color?

Blue, probably.

5) Favorite song?

Oh, it changes almost every week, I think!

6) What are your top three fandoms?

I don’t think I have three, lol. It’s basically ASOIAF, I’m a pretty boring person :P

7) Why do you enjoy tumblr?

People, mostly! I’ve met some really amazing, intelligent, talented people here. Also, I can really fangirl and obsess here. And I can also share my silly gifs, which is so amazing :) 

8) Tag all 9 of your tumblr crushes (they have to do all 8 questions too)

Ok, so celiatully and fat-walda are in the list, but I know they’ve already answered this. And a sideblog too, so I’ll tag the rest of my crushes (only if you feel like it, obviously!)

"You are Alayne, and you must be Alayne all the time." He put two fingers on her left breast. "Even here. In your heart. Can you do that? Can you be my daughter in your heart?"

"I …" I do not know, my lord, she almost said, but that was not what he wanted to hear. Lies and Arbor gold, she thought. “I am Alayne, Father. Who else would I be?”

The prayer by bubug

"She turned her face up to the sky and closed her eyes. She could feel the snow on her lashes, taste it on her lips. It was the taste of Winterfell. The taste of innocence. The taste of dreams. When Sansa opened her eyes again, she was on her knees. She did not remember falling. It seemed to her that the sky was a lighter shade of grey. Dawn, she thought. Another day. Another new day. It was the old days she hungered for. Prayed for. But who could she pray to? The garden had been meant for a godswood once, she knew, but the soil was too thin and stony for a weirwood to take root. A godswood without gods, as empty as me. She scooped up a handful of snow and squeezed it between her fingers."
