a CEO walks into his office “any messages?” he asks his assistant
“two anons want to know who tom petty is and one just says ‘post your ballsack’”
“got it. check my dashboard”
“that skeleton gif you like is back again”
he rubs his chin pensively “mm. reblog that”
Can this be a real job?
Ever wonder how Michele Carragher (embroidery designer for game of thrones) got the Dragon scale look on Daenery’s Dragon scale dresses. here is a how to create your own dragon scale garment.
This dress is probably my single favorite garment from the show… so I’ll just be filing this away for later!
Michele Carragher’s work is beautiful and definitely worth checking out.
A lot of the non embroidered, textural elements of the costumes are done with techniques that can be found in The Art of Manipulating Fabric, which is such an important sourcebook for anyone interested in sewing and textiles.
Reblogging for sources and more information (I have that book, but I’ve been too busy to put it into practice!)

The Basilica di Santa Maria del Fiore (English: Basilica of Saint Mary of the Flower) is the main church of Florence, Italy. The Duomo, as it is ordinarily called, was begun in 1296 in the Gothic style to the design of Arnolfo di Cambio and completed structurally in 1436 with the dome engineered by Filippo Brunelleschi. The exterior of the basilica is faced with polychrome marble panels in various shades of green and pink bordered by white and has an elaborate 19th century Gothic Revival façade by Emilio De Fabris. The cathedral complex, located in Piazza del Duomo, includes the Baptistery and Giotto’s Campanile. The three buildings are part of the UNESCO World Heritage Site covering the historic centre of Florence and are a major attraction to tourists visiting the region of Tuscany. The basilica is one of Italy’s largest churches, and until development of new structural materials in the modern era, the dome was the largest in the world. It remains the largest brick dome ever constructed. The cathedral is the mother church of the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Florence, whose archbishop is currently Giuseppe Betori. (x)
I miss having an apartment next to this some days.—
If you were to take a guess as to why Blake Griffin, DeAndre Jordan, Seth Green, Paul Scheer, Danielle Fishel, Ben Schwartz and Nick Kroll were sitting around a table, what would that guess be? I bet it wasn’t “doing a table read of the 1996 classic animated/sports film Space Jam,” but that’s the answer. More vids here.
I was having a terrible day. Then this happened.—
