Daenerys - Penannular Pins by Tarah-Rex Daenerys - Penannular Pins by Tarah-Rex
I've painted and added the pin details to the shirt, but still need to attach some pearls to the more ornamental pin on the lower part of the shirt. I was hoping to have both the belts assembled tonight, but the wrong kind of thread prevented this from happening, soo tomorrow!!!! I am half way done her Hrakkar (white lion) pelt and am still at a loss about finding beige/gray leggings. I absolutely cannot find plain beige faux leather leggings ANYWHERE, so I'm starting to think I will have to sew them. Also, I can't find a suitable model dragon anywhere and don't have the time to make one *panic!!!!* Lastly, I received my purple contacts in the mail yesterday and am anxiously anticipating the arrival of my wig :D I purchased some basic Ugg boots for her shoes (though my soul died a little doing so as I've managed from the age of 14-24 to not purchase/wear Ugg boots).

I'm extremely happy with the pins! I used copper wire to create the curves, then molded polymer clay around them and added some decorative twists, etc. to make them "fancier". For the more ornamental pin, I just took a lot of screen shots and then rolled the clay as flat as possible without it breaking. I skewered holes through the clay to match the pattern on her pin as closely as possible, and after baking and painting it actually looks like punched metal...sort of, lol! Now I just need to glue on the pearl accents :D

D: I LOVE IT! Do you mind if I ask what material you used for her shirt?

Thank you!! :D :D That's actually a tough question for me, because I'm super new to sewing and don't have much knowledge of materials. I don't specifically know what material I used, but basically I perused through all the materials to find something that was a loose weave that resembled Burlap (like a potato sack), but less itchy haahahaha! So ultimately you are just looking for a natural fiber, loose weave material that's quite soft. You need it to be loose weave to shred the bottoms of the shirt and make the front part of her skirt look like its slowly losing the weave and coming apart. For the front skirt, I used a skewer to stretch holes into it through the weave and to shred it here and there. Hopefully that helps, and sorry I don;t specifically know what fabric I used :( I just search until I find what looks right.

That's quite alright, I really appreciate the advice! I was thinking burlap myself but also ran into the itchy problem, I was debating a thin lining of cotton fabric on the inside to possibly help that a bit, but I will keep an eye out for a fabric more similar to this one, I love the final result, by the way. I saw it in your gallery and it looks fabulous! :)
