The Game of Thrones exhibition came to Stockholm for the first time this year. Mr.A and I have massive love for that show, so of course, we simply had to head out to Kungstragården, get into a long queue for the better part of two hours to get an entry to the GoT world. So exciting!
At the entrance, we could get a photo sitting upon the Iron Throne. That was quite enough to make my day. But there was more awaiting us inside. Costumes and props that were actually used during the shoot were on display. Gorgeous gowns donned by Cersei, Danerys and Sanza. Armours worn by Jon Snow, Tyrion & Jaime Lannister. The dragon eggs before they hatched. The Mountain’s sword. The White Walkers’ Master. There were some cool activities, too. You could get ‘torched by a dragon’ – they made a video of you being incinerated by the flames from a dragon’s fangs 🙂 You could be ‘turned by a White Walker’ – they transformed your photo so you had icy blue ices and snowy hands hair 😉 But the best one was where you got a 3-D tour, a ride upon the winch elevator to the top of the Wall at Castle Black, an experience created with a Sony Oculus, mixed with sound and effects of movement and wind. It was a real ride, and at the end of it, the effect was that you were toppling down the wrong side, north of the Wall, into the Haunted Forest! Very cool, I say 😀
