Tutorial by AmenoKitarou

Super duper awesome and helpful! I am totally going to try this out for my Garrosh cosplay.

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).

Here’s a link to Ms. Carragher’s website.


Now let’s see… which page to destroy first..

Hey tumblr,

I’m not the kind of person to ask for help on the internet for money when I’m in times of need, but i was just kicked out of my house by my dad (who has honestly been very unstable for the past 2 years), and although I do have a place to go thankfully, I’m so incredibly broke its not even funny, so I’m posting a link to my store which you can find Here:


I have buttons prints and aprons for sale, Im also open all the time for both art AND cosplay commissions which you can message me about on both tumblr and my email psychedelicpaprika@gmail.com.

Im not taking donations because Im not sick or dying, and i’d rather people have things they can use/like then just throwing there money at some stranger on the internet, so please please check out my store, even buying buttons is incredibly helpful because I cant even afford taking the T into Boston now to go to job interviews I have because all of  this is so sudden and he wants me out of the house before tomorrow. 

please help my friend she just got kicked out and im so worried about her. all of her things are so high quality and cute!!

Some fabric/fiber basics


Can I say that I am totally in love with this blog? It’s awesome!

One of the most basic problems in cosplay is choosing the fabric that you’re going to work with. Here’s a couple of Info graphics to help you navigate the vast world of fabrics.


This has a brief…





It’s never too late to learn the right way to do things: button sewing technique via imgurmore…


I feel like I just reblog this every time it is on my dash, with hope that one day I will stop being such a goof about sewing buttons.

You mean someone don’t do it like this?

Nice try, Dipper, nice try.

Anyway I drew this in reference to one of the first pictures I ever drew of Earl. Character development!




On Saturday, August 10th, Carly Ann Hefflin took her own life.

She was 24 years old, a mother, a sister, a daughter, a granddaughter, and a friend to many. She made a huge positive impact on the lives of everyone around her, and her depression-spurred suicide took even her closest friends and family by surprise. Her death is a tragedy.

Her family is still mourning, and her two siblings, Alex and Amanda, want to memorialize their sister with matching tattoos, but they can’t afford to get them.

Please reblog this post to spread the word and help her siblings by donating here to their cause.

Thank you all for your thoughts, your prayers, and your support.

Frog set up this wonderful thing for me, and my brother.  Even just reblogs would help very much, thank you for taking the time just to read this and pass this on, I understand that not everyone has the funds to be able to help with something like this.

She was wonderful, and is sorely, sorely missed.  Thank you for your time.

There’s not much more to add. Good luck reaching your goal, Aiden <3

Friends and followers, if you have a few dollars to spare to help out a dear friend of mine, or a signal boost, it would be deeply appreciated. ♡


My cosplay wing tutorial is now complete!  I tried to cover as much of my process as possible for making feathered wings. I hope you find this helpful :)

Some harsh but very very true words

Guys, this is the truest thing. If you think negatively about your stuff, other people will start to think negatively about it too. Furthermore, if you make yourself think positively about your stuff, eventually you will be positive about it without that positivity needing to be forced.

Treat your art like it’s the best art in the world and chances are no one will notice the mistakes that are so obvious to you.

Girlfriend let me have her old Chef’s coat ahahaha im gonna have fun with this #wtnv
