I know guys, what touristy locations!!! Who am I, going to these touristy places? Well, here’s my story.
After breakfast at the Breslin, as detailed in my last post, we decided to walk over to Times Square to see if there were any good matinees available at TKTS, and also to visit my sister who was rehearsing for a show at the Broadway Dance Center.
We were strolling along 6th Avenue when we passed the HBO store, which is right by Bryant Park and across the street from the Museum of the International Center of Photography. There was a big Game of Thrones display in the front window, so we decided to poke our heads into the store just because. And this is what we saw:
GUYSSSS. That is the very costume that Melisandre wears in her first appearance on Game of Thrones. THE VERY ONE. And since I am remaking my Melisandre costume from last year I totally went nuts and took a bazillion photographs because OH MY LORD guys, the costume was right there. (Don’t worry, I won’t show you them all).
Anyways, check out that necklace:
I took pictures of the other costumes as well: they had Jon Snow’s Night’s Watch uniform, Dany’s Dothraki garb, and one of Cersei’s court gowns. They also had some fantastic props from the show.
So that was pretty amazing. After geeking out we headed over to TKTS–None of the show options pleased us, so we moved along. We watched my sister’s dance rehearsal for a bit, and then we decided to walk uptown to the MoMA. I have a friend who works at the museum and she’d left me some free tickets (whee!) On our way we passed Rockefeller Plaza, which still had its adorable and floral Easter display up.
And then, because I was in a touristy mood, I decided to take Jon into the Lego Store, which has some truly amazing displays including Lego recreations of the murals in the buildings around Rockefeller Plaza. We also had a brief discussion regarding purchasing this Super Star Destroyer set, but we decided against it. Oh well.
I’ll tell you about what we saw at the MoMA tomorrow. If you want to see more pictures from the Game of Thrones exhibits at the HBO store, check out this link!
