{Event} Game of Thrones

Recently I had the pleasure of participating in a special event for the premier of HBO's original series Game of Thrones

The Season 3 premiere was at Grauman's Chinese Theater (now called TCL Chinese Theater), where the red carpet was abuzz with the stars of the series.

The after party for the premiere was held at the iconic Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel.
The event space was transformed as if you stepped into another world from another time.

The hotel was filled with nooks and areas for guests to try their hand at activities like archery, get their fortunes told, watch fire dancers, stilt walkers, jugglers, and belly dancers as they entertained and interacted with onlookers. All of the talent was hired by a fabulous group that I got the chance to meet and be associated with called Fire Groove. With their assistance, they turned this event into an unforgettable experience.

Musicians kept the party hopping as celebrities, HBO executives,
and invited guests mingled and feasted.

Kathryn Murray, a respected colleague of mine, and I got ready prior to the event by getting our hair and makeup done, and dressing in costumes representative of the time period.

Here I am with Kathryn as part of the artistic crew of calligraphers at this station, where guests could get their souvenir of the famous Game of Thrones map (which is featured in the credits) personalized with their own House name in medieval gothic-like typestyle.

Here are samples of the House names written in calligraphy by Kathryn:

And here are my samples of each House name:

It was wonderful getting to spend time doing what I love at such an amazing event, with one of my favorite fellow calligraphers!
Thank you to Kathryn for allowing me to showcase her beautiful work in this post as well :)

Thank you to Kamala and Hannah from Fire Groove for the joy of mixing my talents with yours!

And thank you to HBO for inviting us to be a part of your special Game of Thrones event!
It was an evening to remember!

Catch the season 3 premiere of Game of Thrones this Sunday at 9pm (PST) on HBO.
You won't wanna miss it!
