Michele Carragher, the head embroider on Game of Thrones, made this awesome tutorial to show how she created the dragonscale fabric that appears on several of Daenarys’ costumes in S3 and S4.

Ms. Carragher says that the dragonscale fabric was created because “In season 3 the Costume Designer Michele Clapton wanted a Dragonscale like textured embroidery that starts to emerge on three of Daenery’s costumes, which becomes heavier and more pronounced, growing and evolving as the season progresses” (Carragher).

In stages 9-11 of the tutorial we see how the textile evolves from lightly to heavily embellished. This progression is meant to illustrate Daenarys’ personal growth and the growth of her dragons (source).

Hey I saw you gave some advice for feferi horns as wondering if you had any advice for kanaya horns?

Oh, yo. I made Kanaya horns a while back, a long while back in all honesty. Though, when I made them I made two Feferi-like horns, but one was longer, so I bent down then tip on the longer one and then recreated the point on the top after it had all dried by sanding it…
You could also probably try forming the tip of the horn before hand to save yourself time when sanding.

Also, I used the anchor method to attach my horns and I probably did it wrong so the anchors completely fell out after it dried. If you’re going to use anchors, make sure you put them in before you finish sculpting the horns so that they’re actually squished inside :o

I'm making Feferi horns but I can't find a template, can you help me out please? It would be incredibly helpful! :D

For feferi horns it depends on your material you use. I would not use model magic. It breaks very easily and doesnt like to stay on headbands with a screw through the middle. This is from personal experiance with my gamzee horns.

I would recommend using instamorph plastic pellets. They are sturdier and more heavy duty. You can paint them with normal paints.

For a pattern her horns are pretty simple. They are like 2 parantheses bent into eachother. ) ( like that.

If you plan on making fabric horns i can link you to videos that help you with making those too! I hope i helped just a little bit. ~ Admin Joxxy


So I’ve got this thing now where if I’m working on a cosplay, decide to research a component of it, and find nothing, that I just need to do something to fill in that information gap. As you can see, the latest instance was Aoba’s jacket, so here is my latest contribution to the internet’s vast store of cosplay knowledge!

Please note: I am extremely experimental when it comes to making cosplay, and very much a “I wonder what happens if you do this??”/let’s-push-the-big-red-button kind of crafter, so my methods MIGHT NOT WORK FOR YOU. I really hope that they do, but I just wanted to put a warning out there nonetheless!

What goes into styling a wig? In general, not much: creativity, a little bit of elbow grease, blood, sweat, tears… and the right tools. The arsenal of a cosplayer who has wigs as their calling may seem a bit daunting at first glance, but in actuality it is…
