Interviewer: “We can pretty much guess in the second season that Ethan might find out what happened to his former love who has been, we think, transformed. So that probably will not be a positive thing on (Ethan and Victor’s) relationship, right? Guessing? (x)
I knew [In The Flesh] was a beautiful, beautiful, original script. Beautifully written and it was very original and different from anything else., I knew that. But I didn’t quite expect the following it would gain around the world and stuff. That’s totally mad and really exciting.
Disclaimer: This is not my own idea; I got the tip from the lovely Elentari-liv, who was kind enough to share her technique with me. This is only showing the basics I’ve used to knit the scales, not how to make any certain piece.
Also, keep in mind that I’m still a beginner at knitting. I’ve been doing it for approximately two weeks.
What you’ll need:
- circular knitting needles
- small scales
You’ll probably want to choose a yarn close to your scale colour, or one that complements it (I used a contrasting one here to make things easier to show). You may have to experiment a bit with the yarn gauge and size of the needles. I ended up using gauge three yarn and size six needles after some testing. Larger needles widened the gap between scales, so that the yarn was visible in between, which I didn’t want, and thicker yarn made the scales stick out too much as opposed to hanging. It looked like I was knitting a very ruffled dragon.
Scales can be purchased from The Ring Lord, with multiple choices of colour and material. I’ve experimented with both aluminum and steel; the steel seems to hang better because of its weight, but it all depends on what you need for your project!
(I’m putting the actual process under a read more because I do have a lot of photos.)
I’m gonna go ahead and put this under the resources tag for reenactors, cosplayers, Rennies and SCA-ers!
One Ring to rule them all…

GET TO KNOW ME MEME: [1/5] Favourite tv shows » MerlinI think you’re mad, I think you’re all mad. People should marry for love, not convenience. And if Uther thinks that an unhappy king makes for a stronger kingdom, then he’s wrong. Because you may be destined to rule Camelot, but you have a choice… As to how you do it.
This art is so beautiful, I can’t handle it
First you see a normal, pretty picture with Fionna and on a cliff
And then it turns out she sits on a destroyed speedway and things are not so sweet anymore asdsd
so many people don’t realize that adventure time is post-apocalyptic and set after a nuclear war. it’s such a huge statement in itself and makes all the details of the show much more fascinating to take note of!
