Game of Thrones costumes coming to NYC March 28 - April 3  
Knocks on the glass to see if anyone is there.

Anyway.... I know this isn't Merlin but I figured some of you might be interested.

Apparently the Game of Thrones costumes and props are doing a fast tour.
From HBO website http://www.hbo.com/game-of-thrones/about/article/exhibition.html

Game of Thrones' will come alive for fans in an immersive, not-to-be-missed touring exhibition that will transport viewers into the breathtaking and enchanted world of Westeros. The traveling exhibit, the first of its kind by HBO, will stop in five international cities - Toronto, New York City, Sao Paolo, Amsterdam and Belfast. Presented by HBO and international partners, the exhibition is free to the public and focuses on key characters from five of the noble houses: Stark, Lannister,
Targaryen, Baratheon and Greyjoy. It will showcase a trove of more than 70 original artifacts from Seasons 1 and 2, plus select pieces from this year's new season.

Costumes, props, armor and weapons - Artisans, whose superb craftsmanship provide authenticity to the show's medieval fantasy setting, worked closely with HBO to curate the exhibit. Costume designer Michele Clapton oversaw an impressive display of extraordinarily detailed garments. Other iconic artifacts include the
model dragons, weaponry (King Joffrey's crossbow, daggers and swords such as "Ice" and "Longclaw"), armor (helmets, shields and full suits of armor worn by key characters), crowns, jewelry, books and much more.

Blackwater Bay Interactive Experience - Fans will get an opportunity to participate in an exciting interactive experience that will place them amid the action of the epic Battle of Blackwater Bay from Season 2. Iron Throne - Fans will be able to take their photo on a precise replica of the Iron Throne.
