LOWER EAST SIDE — Blood, fire and ... tassels?

"Game of Thrones" fans gathered at a bar on the Bowery Tuesday night for a burlesque show featuring performers channeling characters from the hit HBO series.

A group of dancers inspired by the popular fantasy series acted out risqué renditions straight from the fictional land of Westeros — complete with sword-handling, fire-eating and, of course, plenty of skin.

"Game of Tassels," hosted by Hotsy Totsy Burlesque, is part of the troupe's monthly performance series at R Bar.

It featured performers Corvette Le Face (playing Khal Drogo), Bambi Galore (as Cersei Lannister),  Sasha the Fire Gypsy (as Daenerys Targaryen), Vada James (as Sansa Stark) and host Cherry Pitz (as Tyrion Lannister).
