Game of Thrones exhibition in London

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.     DSC_0205

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.

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. DSC_016611107_10100352967184954_7624260665483947058_nI 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. DSC_0192Technology 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. DSC_0211My 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.
