Ilse Einmyria crafted a beautiful replica of the lush winter coat Daenerys Targaryen wore in season seven of Game of Thrones. She of course duplicated the three-headed dragon pin Dany often wears to complete the look. Ilse took a creative approach for crafting the reptilian accessory. Rather than 3D printing or commissioning the pin, she used inexpensive plastic dragons for the base. The plastic was soft enough that she was able to decapitate the dragon toys; she then glued them together. Then, she explains:
Add Worbla! Hot glue doesn’t provide a particularly strong bond on some plastics so I reinforced the join with Worbla, I also used extra scraps of Worbla to bulk out the necks and jawlines of the dragons to make them more closely resemble the original pin. The loop on the back of the pin is also made from Worbla and is where the chain attaches
She shared the full tutorial to go with the above photo on Facebook.
