Journal

Armbands remade (Posted 23rd August 2013)

Arm pieces remade using pleated metallic fabric, foam centre pieces, new beads and hand painted detail. They put these on upside down on the mannequin (top), she wears them the other way around in the show.

New wig (Posted 14th July 2012)

The wig was already slightly wavy so I only needed to trim it.

Strap and detail (Posted 23rd May 2012)

The halter neck strap.

Strap (Posted 23rd May 2012)

The strap is decorated with black and silver trim, using the same metallic fabric used for the arm cuffs I added strips along both edges of the strap to complete it. Using a fine fabric pen I added the same detail to match the arm cuffs to the metallic strips either side the black/silver trim.

Dragon brooch and dress (Posted 22nd May 2012)

Finally I added the brooch to the front of the dress where it easily rests in the v-neck and where the front ties overlap. Some arrangement of the fabric will be needed when worn but this gives an idea on how it will look. It feels quite secure considering the weight of the brooch.

Fastening (Posted 22nd May 2012)

Two silver buttons fasten the dress together at the back with small elasticated loops. This helps the dress drape nicely down the back whilst still making it secure. Top shows the back ties that will link to the arm cuffs attached on the outer sides and bottom shows the front strips tied back.

Side ties and arm cuffs (Posted 22nd May 2012)

The side strips were slipped under each arm cuff, pulled through a little and draped over the top of the each band.

Front and side ties (Posted 22nd May 2012)

Four wide strips have been attached to the dress, two at the back and two at the front over the cups of the dress.

Front ties (Posted 22nd May 2012)

Bra cups were added for support and the front ties lay over these on the outside of the dress, cross right over left and around above the waist.

Fabric (Posted 22nd May 2012)

The actual dress is a dark silver if you look at the photo's of it on display so I'm guessing they used filters in the post editing for the show.
The fabric was a silver grey mix of polyester/nylon with a shimmer finish. I carefully managed to tint it lilac using iDye poly and the stove top method. This is the dress after in natural light (bright sun) and indoors, it's a two tone shade and varies in different light.

Dragon brooch (Posted 21st May 2012)

A birthday gift I've been waiting to show off. The fabric is also what is used for the dress.

Arm cuffs and beads (Posted 20th May 2012)

I used metallic fabric for the arm bands, thin strips that were reinforced with interfacing and fasten with white velcro. Using a fine fabric pen I carefully added the diagonal lines to the metallic fabric and added stitch detail on top with silver thread running alongside.
I made small diamond shapes from the same metallic fabric backed with interfacing for the small centre piece on each arm band. Metallic beads were linked onto aluminium jump rings, three in total for each arm and were stitched into place.

Ring (Posted 13th May 2012)

After studying the references carefully, I noticed the ring wasn't completely black and the crescent part of the ring seemed quite 3D.
I decided to use two hematite rings, spray paint the bottom one gold and fix them together. I made a small crescent moon from milliput, painted that gold also and painted a small flat backed gem black. I then fixed these onto the ring, the gem helped to add some detail and raised the crescent slightly off the band.

Wig styled (Posted 4th May 2012)

The wig was restyled and will have to be taken out again at Expo as I want to wear her dothraki outfit again on the Sunday afternoon. Small silver hair cuffs were used, 7 in total. Strands were separated and swept backwards, some loosely twisted to create a slight wavy style and fastened at the back.

Sandals (Posted 25th April 2012)

There are no references for her footwear but from what I glimpsed from the episode I can only guess she wears some sort of soft fabric sandal. I found some cheap lilac fabric wedges that I thought would suit this.
