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.

brilliant. and sometimes the ugliest produce tastes better.

I remember seeing a story on the news sometime ago that hundreds of millions of fruits and veggies are thrown out by grocery stores just because they don’t look pretty.

So someone took the ones that were about to be thrown out and sold them at a cheaper price.

My new code name: The Disfigured Eggplant.

Wait a minute. You mean my produce could be 30% cheaper if I dealt with slightly ugly fruits and veggies?

What the fuck! America, get on this bandwagon!

I wish we had that over here. Stuff is too expensive as it is, who cares what it looks like before I peel/cut/press it into something jummy?

Inmates and their crimes

Wasn’t Morello actually imprisoned for attempted murder and breach of a restraining order? The show made it seem more like she was never indicted for mail fraud.

I found this gorgeous animated short film, which was directed by Ishida YuYasushi.  The stylization and charm reminds me of Studio Ghibli films or anything made by Mamoru Hosoda, the director of Summer Wars and The Girl who Leapt Through Time.
