* Just in case you're a GoT costume fan and on FB - there's an active GoT costuming group there with lots of nice reference photos of the different characters.
* They were the ones who gave me the heads up about this interesting article by Hogan McLaughlin on Margaery's various outfits.
* After watching the videos and how to's on Michele Carrigher's website and seeing that much of her work is done separately from the costume construction and added later as an applique I feel even better about my plan for appliqueing the birds from the embroidered fabric I bought onto the costume. The question is, for the aqua gown the birds are the main embroidered motifs and are relatively small, should I do the beading and couching of trim before or after construction? Some has to be done after since it crosses construction lines. I think I'll do most of the sleeve embellishment before at least...still working it all out obviously, but interested in any ideas on this or methods other people have used.

Am I crazy to think he could painted and modded to be a decent (albeit somewhat cartoonish) baby dragon? Added bonus (or fatal flaw?) he's animatronic and makes growling noises and snaps at people.
* Anyway, I loved that
