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.

Let me take a second to talk about these things. I found them while looking for makeup for my friends Kanaya cosplay and holycrap are they amazing. These are lip and eye liner, these pencils are a two in one deal- three in one if you want to use it as a lipstick.
Oh and the best part? You get all twelve colors for $5.21. If that’s not amazing, I don’t know what is. You can get them here. <3

Cosplay 101: All About Circle Lenses
 MangoSirene

A lot of you have been curious about circle lenses… so, here you go! Circle lenses are a great cosmetic addition you can use to really bring an anime or cartoon character to life - but as mentioned, they are absolutely not required to be a good cosplayer! There is no shame in not wearing colored contacts. Do what is most comfortable for you!

AGAIN: PLEASE CHECK WITH YOUR EYE DOCTOR BEFORE WEARING CIRCLE LENSES. I can’t stress this enough! Be careful with your eyes - you only have one pair!

This is a great circle lenses tutorial! It came very handy in time for me right before I ordered them for myself. So I’m going to listen to her and get my eyes checked out with an eye doctor! I’ve always known that it’s important to use safe colored contacts that won’t damage your eyes. You only get 1 pair of eyes, please everyone, don’t put cosplay before your eyes!

PERFECT LIPSTICKS FOR COSPLAY?! CHEAP perfect lipsticks for cosplay????Perfect for KANAYA, VRISKA, AND MANY MANY OTHERS!???
Wow!!!!!
This stuff is perfect for cosplay!! I’m wearing them with no base, right out of the tube, and they’re still pretty quality! plus they are CHEAP. AS. FUCK!!!!
The brand is KLEANCOLOR and I think the line is Femme. I bought the lipsticks in a DAISO Japanese dollar store, and payed $9.00 for the 6 lipsticks I bought. That’s $1.50 a piece, literally a tenth of what I pay for my MAC lipsticks.

From their website, they’re $1.99 a tube!

(Ignore how bad i look in this post)

This stuff is also cheap on amazon if you don’t want to buy from their website. Very nice for people who dont want to spend a lot on lipstick. Remember that it!s cheap though so don’t expect the best quality…
