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.

WOW!

Don’t care about Game of Thrones but that shit is cool

After threats against her life, Anita Sarkeesian canceled an upcoming talk at Utah State University. Gamergate trolls are celebrating on Twitter while simultaneously dismissing the threats as nothing. Does this read like nothing to you?

“I will write my manifesto in her spilled blood, and you will all bear witness to what feminist lies and poison have done to the men of America.”

The email’s author threatened to murder feminist women indiscriminately in a mass shooting. And because carrying guns on campus outweigh the right of students and guests to be safe, Anita Sarkeesian canceled her talk.

BUT WE SHOULDN’T FEEL THREATENED, RIGHT?

BECAUSE IT’S JUST THE INTERNET, RIGHT?

The bullies won this time. And if you think this shit isn’t dangerous, I’m fresh out of fucks to give and I’m not restocking any time soon. It’s goddamn wrong to to dismiss this by claiming the author isn’t serious. Elliot Rodger’s rantings were dismissed until it was too late.

This. Is. Not. OK.

guns… literally more important than the lives of women in the state of loveable mormons

Where’s the link between the e-mail and GamerGate?

Go to 8chan’s /gg/ board and look at the post STICKIED that actively condemns any form of harassment.

Nobody in #GamerGate promotes violence against anyone, threats against anyone. If someone does this under the GamerGate hashtag they ARE going to be called on it.

I don’t know what fucking trolls on twitter you’re talking about. Since you haven’t provided any proof.

Listen. Threatening to shoot a school because of Anita is abhorrent, deplorable and terrifying. But let’s look at the facts.

Do not pin this on GamerGate when there’s no evidence for it. I don’t see how suddenly every single person in GamerGate is responsible for the actions of ONE person. Explain that to me. Explain how a single person in a group of people doing something awful makes everyone responsible, especially when this group of people is actively policing and CONDEMNING these actions.

Let’s say someone in your family punches someone, now your whole family is a family that stands for violence? No. That’s not how it works.

Let’s go bigger. Someone in your state murders someone, now everyone in your state is a murderous person? No. Again, that’s not how it fucking works.

Is that all you have to go on? The actions of one individual with no proof that they were linked to a movement? And without proof you’re holding responsible everyone because of it?

Now when I say that there’s no proof, I don’t mean to say that Anita doesn’t BELIEVE that it’s GamerGate related. But the same e-mail I read, is the one she read, and it’s also the one YOU read.

So where’s the mention of videogames? Where’s the mention of GamerGate?

Where is it?

Let’s talk about it.

God this woman thinks she’s a queen and no fucking mistake

Maybe she should use some of her hundred and fifty grand to protect herself instead of demanding taxpayer’s money be wasted reassuring her after some troll messages because it sure as hell asin’t going into her precious vids 

and remember, this isn’t the first time she has made claims about threats without proof, or even worse, with Proof she obviously faked by herself.
