Going to the Game of Thrones Exhibition in London was a dream of mine – until I saw it was only for Sky subscribers. Annoying but fine. I put it out of my mind but then a friend of mine invited me along to the exhibition on Monday night. The dream was alive and kicking once again. I went and it was brilliant.
The majority of the exhibition is taken up with props and costumes from the show. It was wonderful to see just how much detail and thought goes into a show like this – how technical and methodical they have to be with everything.
But not only this, there was an interactive element to the exhibtion. So not only was I able to sit in the chair (which I totally owned right?) I was able to hold the most phallic looking sword ever and have a go at transforming myself into a White Walker. I am seriously in love with this image. How perfect is it? It is going to be my image everywhere for a little while. And even though this was pretty cool, the coolest thing was getting to climb the Wall. Technology has changed to much that it was an all immersive experience – you really felt as if you were on a lift being hauled up the wall. It was cold and icy and there was a drop and someone may just have pushed you down it. My only wish was that the exhibtion was longer but from someone who didn’t think they would ever get the chance to go as they are not a Sky subscriber this is only a very minor complaint. I loved the whole experience and the whole evening. I love that the exhibition came to London before going off to tour the world. It gave me such an insight into the show and I can’t wait for the next season and the book.
