A new display of ‘Game of Thrones’ costumes celebrating the kingdom of Dorne has launched at the “Game of Thrones Studio Tour” in Northern Ireland.
The display was launched recently by British Indian ‘Game of Thrones’ star Indira Varma and included costumes worn by the actor and her screen daughters, Obara, Nymeria and Tyene (the Sand Snakes), a Martell Guard, and an impressive life-size prancing horse created by the show's SFX experts. Varma also handed over her famous cuff-dagger – designed by Weapons Master Tommy Dunne – to the Studio Tour for permanent display among hundreds of other must-see props, more than 140 iconic costumes, jewellery, awe-inspiring sets and stunning weapons in the visitor attraction.
Varma said: "Game of Thrones Studio Tour blew me away. This is a remarkable experience for everyone. The detail that has gone into this visitor attraction is just as meticulous as that on the show itself.
"It was great to see once again the costumes I wore on ‘Game of Thrones’ and the many others that are here. It brought back a lot of memories. Anyone interested in TV, film, costumes, make-up, prop-making, set-building, prosthetics, the lot, this is the place to visit, it's a fantastic day out!"

Varma first appeared in Season 4 of ‘Game of Thrones’ as Ellaria Sand, the paramour to Prince Oberyn Martell, portrayed by actor Pedro Pascal, and the loyal mother of three daughters – Nymeria, Tyene and Obara Sand.
Sherryl Murphy, Marketing Manager at Game of Thrones Studio Tour, said: "It was special having Indira Varma at Game of Thrones Studio Tour and launching our new Dorne costume display. We're looking forward to welcoming many visitors this summer who will be among the first to see up close and personal the new additions to the Studio Tour.”
