This is what I wore yesterday for a really exciting tour I went on. Is anyone else obsessed with Game of Thrones? Well, it's filmed here in Northern Ireland and they've been here filming season 2 since July. I am obsessed with the show, so it's really exciting for me that it's filmed here in my city (and in the hills around us, of course!).

Last week Northern Ireland Screen ran a special event at a cinema in town where they screened the entire of season 1 over 2 nights. You could only get in if you won tickets, and I managed to nab a few. It was amazing! 5 episodes a night, interspersed with questions and prizes. And the iron throne to sit on. I had a blast and managed not to fangirl too hard.

And then yesterday, a trip I have been excited about for months finally happened! I'm working with Takeover Film, a film weekend coming up in a few weeks organised and programmed by young people. As part of this, we got to go on a tour of the Paint Hall Studio (so named because it's in the Titanic quarter where the ships used to be painted) where they are filming Game of Thrones. This is a closed set so it was really an amazing opportunity! I can't describe how awesome it was. We started in the Throne room at King's Landing and it was just insane! I got to sit on the actual Iron Throne (and Cersei's little chair beside it) and hear all about how everything was made. We got to wander around the bedrooms too, Sansa's and the Kings chambers.

We walked around the corner and I saw scribbled on the side of a piece of wood 'Eyrie' and was having another fangirl moment thinking 'ohh cool this must be a prop from the Eyrie!', turn a corner and I'm IN the Eyrie. Amazing! The whole room was just spectacular and I was blown away. I got to sit in the Throne there and hear about how it was made (from three pieces of driftwood). The Iron Throne is impressive of course, but the Eyrie throne is seriously beautiful. Following this we went through the prop room and saw all sorts of things, including a pile of dead bodies (!) and the Dire Wolf body from episode 1. Anyway, so you can probably tell I am a bit of a geek by now. We weren't allowed any photos because it's all super hush hush for season 2 but I can tell you, it will be fantastic! My brother is an extra on it and they're filming in a Quarry and local harbor. Anyway, enough fangirling! It was great though, like my Disney World to be honest.

After the tour I walked into town, if you don't alreay know the MTV EMA's are here in Belfast this year. Justin Bieber is in town and there are hoards of teenage girls everywhere. I said hello to Snow Patrol who walked past me outside the Merchant. It's so odd having so many celebs in the city, it's buzzing. Anyway, if I spot Lady Gaga or Rihanna i'll let you know ;)

  9. Game of Thrones! Omg I'm so jealous, you have the most fabulous clothes and get to go to the most fabulous places. I've got life envy over here :)

    I love the Iron Throne, wow, look at it. It is truly awesome. I love Game of Thrones myself although I end up crying almost every episode (I might have mentioned that before). Didn't 'The Tudors' film in Ireland (when it was being filmed) as well?

    I absolutely adore your nails, the glitter and the two tone colors, just fabulous. Speaking of fabulous that skirt is just divine, absolutely love it.
