    There were a few Merlin costumes reused over the seasons- the ones above, & some later being colour-changed.
    The ones I noticed; the costume worn in the First Season by Michelle Ryan as ‘Nimueh/ Cara’ in “The Poisoned Chalice” – by the time it’s seen briefly again, in “To Kill the King”- it’s known as Tom’s last gift to Gwen: other than having been dipped in a dye-bath, to give it a dusty pink/ purple colour, the lacing at the bodice has been replaced with buttons.
    Season Two’s “The Witchfinder”, with the costume of ‘Annis of Camelot’ – compare it to Season Five, & Eira’s costume… it has also clearly been put in a dye-bath- the neckline is too similar to be another.

  2. Oh, yes, I forgot to tell. Sophia’s necklace appears a second time in “Merlin”, specifically season 2, in the 10th episode, called “Sweet Dreams”. It is worn by Georgia Moffett as Lady Vivian. Here’s a picture.

    (…by the way, Lady Vivian’s earrings also appear again, in 4th season…)

  3. Each wearing belongs to season 1, 2 and 3, respectively. In the second one, it also appears worn by Alice Patten as Ygraine Pendragon in the episode “The Tears of Uther Pendragon: Part II”. But it is barely visible, because she’s an hallucination, and there’s green halo sorrounding her.

    Thanks, Katie!!
