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

I didn’t learn about sewing as much as I learned that, no matter what she currently gets, Ms Carragher isn’t paid enough.

Fuck

Scandinavian Folklore – Myling

A myling is the spirit of a small child, or infant forced to walk the earth until they could persuade someone to help put their soul to rest. A child would only become a myling if they were killed by their mother and their remains hidden away. In the old days this was a fairly common way for an unmarried or poverty-stricken woman to get rid of an unwanted child.

The stories tell of the mothers horrible deed being revealed when the myling sings a song about their fate.  Mylingar were believed to exist in places were a young mother were most likely to hide away a dead infant, such as mires, outhouses, cairns and forest valleys.  From these you could sometimes hear a child crying.

Sometimes the unnamed, unwanted child would call for help; ‘’Give me a name!’’ they would scream. You would then have the opportunity to save them by answering;

‘’You can take mine! My name is XXXX’’

You could also help their soul find rest by finding their corpse and giving the child a proper burial.

The name myling derives from myrding, the old norse myrða, which literally means ‘’to murder’’
