'Game of Thrones' launches traveling exhibit with props from show
The HBO hit fantasy series Game of Thrones is launching a traveling exhibition that will show off props, costumes, and various multi-colored suits of armor from the show’s first two seasons. The show will tour through Toronto, New York City, Sao Paulo, Amsterdam, and Belfast. The official website has more information, but HBO was kind enough to share some shots from the show. Above, check out the crown worn by Good Ol’ Renly Baratheon, one of about 50 kings involved in the first two seasons of the show.
Here we see costume designer Michele Clapton working on one of Cersei Lannister’s fancy dresses. Click forward for more!
Little King Joffrey does so love his crossbow. In a better world, maybe he could have a crossbow showdown with Daryl Dixon from The Walking Dead. And then Daryl would kill him and bring peace to Westeros. This will all be in my seven-volume Fan Fiction series, The Dead of Thrones.
Countdown to Jon Snow in three, two, one…
This Night’s Watch uniform sure looks comfortable, doesn’t it? Actually, no, it looks brutally uncomfortable. It looks like they killed a rhino and covered it in the collective hair of the band Metallica circa 1984-1989. Which is awesome, but like, they wear this while they’re walking over glaciers.
Bragging rights to whoever names the owner of this particular suit of armor. No googling!
Thrones fans, is the exhibition coming to your city? Will you be making special travel plans, if not? Personally, I recommend heading to Amsterdam. Because there’s a Van Gogh museum there. Culture!
