Today I started ripping Drogon’s wings off. They had started breaking at Comicon and I was worried about their integrity at the photoshoot I’m having with my friend Air Bubbles Cosplay next week. I decided I wanted to have my dragon be posable and also fit in my car (unlike before). So, I’m doing poseable dragons, yay!

So I may have been rewatching GoT season 2, and that may have led me to wanting to make Daenerys’ Quarth gown. It may be almost finished… /blush.

I may just want to cosplay everything they make for Dany………

Tutorial Tuesday!

I finally was able to sit down and down and write up a new tutorial! I hope people find this useful!

I used the same thing for my version of Dany’s season 3-4 blue dress. Works really well, and looks very much like what was done for the show.

Hello! Your Daenarys cosplay is fantasticly gorgeous! Could I ask you something? I'm working on the dress for a friend of mine, and I can't for the life of me figure out the dragon scale stitching, even with the costumer's tutorial. Could you help me figure it out maybe?

So this is my mini Dragonscale Smocking tutorial. Hopefully it’s easier for you to understand.

Supplies and starting off:

image

Look supplies! You need your fabric, needle, thread, a pen, and scissors. On your fabric you need to make the dots shown on the paper to the right (it was hard to see them on the fabric I used).

Disclaimer: Don’t use red embroidery thread, I did so you could see, but on my actual dress I used black heavy duty thread, but you can basically use anything semi-close to your fabric in colour.

Tie a knot a big ass knot in your thread and let’s get started.

image

Alright, here we are. you start on the middle dot one row up. Take a tiny stich through the fabric (we’ll be doing a lot of that) just enough so you catch the fabric.

image

Pull tight, and yay, a knot!

image

Alright, go over to the farthest right dot on that same row and do a tiny stich like shown above.

image

It should look like this.

image

Ok. now you stich the dot on the row below that lies in the middle of the other two places you stitched. ( you can see it better on the diagram to the right).

image

Do a tiny stich back where we started. It should look like this. Triangles!

image

Now the sort of tricky part, hold down the string coming up from the bottom (in this case that’s the knotted string, so it doesn’t really matter, but for the rest it will.) Ok, then pull tight the end of the string attached to the needle.

image

It should look like this.

Important! Make sure you take a tiny stitch through all the fabric bunched at this area to make sure it stays put (I forgot to take a picture of this, I’ll add it later).

image

Stitch through the dot in the middle directly above where you started, and repeat the process with the dots to the left now.

image

image

Here’s a picture of me holding down the connecting thread from the previous triangle (like I held down the knot earlier). If you don’t, that will get pulled tight too, and it won’t look right. That was the mistake I made my first time.

image

Pulled tight! Remember to stich them to hold them. It starts getting difficult to see the dots as they get obscured by folds, but just remember to make sure you’re stitching the right ones.

image

Repeat, switching sides each time, like in the diagram, and it should start looking like this on the back.

image

This is what it should look like on the front.

When you’re done, tie another knot, and cut the rest of the thread off.

Then you can iron it flat and tadaa, dragonscale!

(Which you then sew onto your base dress.)

hi i just wanted to tell you how amazing your daenerys cosplay is! i'm planning on doing one too and do you have any tips for the eyebrows? because danny's eyebrows are pretty special haha. thanks for the help anyways! love your blog

Thanks. :)

So my eyebrows are pretty naturally full, but they don’t quite match Emilia’s bushiness.  What I do is I spray a little hairspray into my hand and then dab it onto the areas of my eyebrows that need, well, more eyebrow (after putting on foundation and stuff) then I use an angled eyeshadow brush and a brown eyeshadow in jagged strokes to help recreate the texture of hair.

Also to make your eyebrows look fuller you can run a brown liner or eyeshadow through them.

Hope that helps :)

Recommendations for a good quality light blonde wig?
Lace front for Daenerys cosplay.

The one I ordered came as the wrong colour and apparently they are out of stock so just sent a random one… Not helpful

So the wig I got for Daenerys was from Arda Wigs: a Matilda in titanium blonde (a perfect match for seasons 3-4 colour). I could have also gone with the Arwen which is a longer wig (I probably should have, the Matilda is a little on the short side).

But I had an amazing experience with Arda and got my wig within one week of ordering even though it said it was out of stock.

Anyways, I hope that helps.
