To publicise the new movie, ArcLight Hollywood cinema had this fantastic exhibit of original costumes, worn by the fantasy heroes and villains in the movie remake, photographed on display on August 12, 2011 and installed by Olson Visual.

The costume exhibit included this outfit with chainmail sleeve worn by Jason Momoa as Conan. It felt quite heavy, but I'm sure that's no problem for someone with his muscles. Also on display was Conan's broadsword, which he uses to exact revenge on the people who killed his father and destroyed his village.

She's Conan's love interest in the movie and this is one of her costumes from the movie, which wouldn't look that out of place in a Pirates of the Caribbean film.
