Woohooo! Finland finally got their own Game of Thrones Exhibition! We went and partied with HBO Nordic on the night before the opening. The exhibition takes place in a huge tent smack in the middle of Kamppi, Helsinki and it’s open for public until Sunday, April 17th.
The opening night gala was full of happy people, live music, silly photos on the Iron Throne and of course, some alcoholic drinks. Which meant even more of the silliness, naturally.
We even did a live Periscope stream from the super fancy luxury porta-potties… you know, because we always aim at high quality when producing blog content! (You’ll find us on Periscope by the username @fangirlquest!)
During the evening, we took like maybe 20 photos on the throne and got our faces right up there on the wall with the characters. AMAZING.
The exhibition also has a few costumes from the show, making of documentaries, merchandise you can admire & order to be delivered to you and a few other things. It might not be as big as the exhibition in Stockholm last year, but it’s still quite a treat for every Game of Thrones fan!
The Hall Of Faces is an interactive wall full of Game of Thrones characters faces, where users can upload their own instant portraits to “sleep” among them.
The Helsinki exhibition also offers a few samples of genuine Game of Thrones costumes.
Imagine having this in your home as wallpaper… dark, huh?
Finnish TV star Mikko Leppilampi hosted the opening night gala.
Is Jon Snow alive? Yes. Jon Snow is alive. Just because we say so.
The fantastic Ida Elina performed live songs at the gala.
During the first day of the exhibition visitors got these cool Game of Thrones balloons to go with them.
Game of Thrones: The Hall of Faces Exhibition Helsinki runs until Sunday, April 17th and you can visit (plus strike a pose on the Iron Throne!) for free. Check out the Facebook event page for more information.
