Game of Thrones: Daenerys Targaryen's outfits




I recently got interested in Game of Thrones (GoT) just because of the hype that happened on the internet and mostly in almost all social media platforms. They endlessly discuss about the series especially the new season this year. The possibilities, predictions and also controversial part about the incest between the main characters.

I started to look for more info from many sites to understand better what it is all about. After doing some reading, I decided to skip the previous seasons and only watch the latest season. At least I caught a glimpse of what is happening in the story and only focus on the main characters who stay alive.

Actually I got curious even more about the meeting between Daenerys and Jon who happened to lead different lives for all 6 seasons and only met in this season. Since I can't help myself to find one pairing within each story that I've followed, this one is also included. I like these two as a couple despite they are related by blood as aunt and nephew. Frankly I didn't see any other possibilities for other pairing and perhaps they may lead to tragic ending when they found out the truth or on the contrary, things will be overlooked as it happened before with their previous family generation.

They will play the important roles for the future of the 7kingdoms, either bear an heir or rules together or even only one of them survive. Unfortunately, we still need to wait until 2019 for the final season. FYI, I even drew them as a fan art drawing once as shown in the picture above.

Anyway, the other thing that caught my eyes is her wardrobes throughout this season with long coats are the best. I love the details such as the dragon chain, the frills, the white fury winter coat material and the hard textures on dark coat to match her dragons' skin. It looks way better than her previous costumes in previous seasons. I kind of tempted to make for my own clothes' collection inspired from it too perhaps later on.

The photos are not mine except the drawing. It belongs to the respected owners. I just showed it here as reference.

Signal: Kim Hye Soo's Jackets (Korean Drama 2016)

   I've finished watching this thriller mystery detective drama 2days ago for
about 3days span of time to spend for 16episodes only on my break time from work.

   The story revolved around some difficult and complicated cold cases' crime solving methods combined with communication through time and space of a mysterious walkies-talkie between 2 police detectives. It was then revealed this strange things occurred due to strong wish of a good-heart and honest dying man of 15years ago whom then claimed as a missing person with unknown fate when he tried to find the culprit behind all related crimes. 
   
   It was one helluva tiring but amazing story to follow. I admire the screenwriter who wrote the story and great acting done by all the actors. I would give 9 out of 10 scale for a recommended drama to watch.

   Aside from the drama itself, the thing that caught my attention the most was the jackets and overall all the clothes worn by Kim hye soo. I love them all. She looked fabulous in those winter jackets along with some skinny pants and boots. I can't find the perfect photos to show it here and to capture it from drama scenes also would be quite a hassle. It was great references for sporty and casual but still can be formal clothing/suit for office worker/ detectives or even college students. A good composition and mixture of some color tones which are quite soft and elegant for woman of her age.

One good moral value from this drama is that we must not give up no matter how impossible it may look, because the future can be different even better than we thought.

Fight For My Way: Ko Dong Man's Outfits (Korean Drama 2017)


  This was the first ever anti mainstream (read: non Cinderella-stereotype) Korean drama I've ever watched. It has a unique plot about friendship and life struggle that really close to reality. A story of more than 20years friendship turned to love between a man named Ko dong man, who at first, almost gave up his dream to be a MMA fighter and a woman named Choi ae ra, who finally found her way as an announcer, added with  2 other best friends/ couple with their own love life and career problems. It is recommended to watch as I gave 8.5 out of 10 scale.

   As usual, I'm not keen to explain further about the story or anything else
related to the drama other than the wardrobes worn by the characters. I love how they mix and match the clothes for the main couple based on some soft and basic color combinations that is still pretty much true to their
character backgrounds as ordinary athlete and announcer/office girl.

Actually, what the man (Ko dong man) wore was more interesting and came in
many variety as sport clothing references. Started from Some workout
or daily suits such as jumpers, casual t-shirts with simple wording prints or graphics and training suits with 2-3 colors plus piping or stripes, also some torn denim jackets and floral shirts. I captures some of them from the drama scenes as the examples to get the idea of what I've written above.

It somehow reminded me way back then when I was designing some similar type of clothes for one company from UK. It had this typical color combination and details on their products. Mostly they use cotton fleece fabric for jumpers, cotton combed for t-shirts and some cotton spandex and other semi polyester fabrics for training suits. I just assume it might be the same with the one in this drama.

Moral value: It is never too late to chase your dream, for it may come true if you believe it. 

Age restriction for viewers are above 15 years old and I also made a fan art drawing of the couple from this drama above.

Miracle Box

Once, I was asked by someone about how, where or when I can get some ideas for my work. I could not reply it directly but only smile since I think it was a funny and somewhat ridiculous question to begin with. Why? because it is the same with asking why people do what they like to do. 

My work is something I like to do and not only 'work'. It is like a challenge to interpret people's minds if it is related to customers and walking in my own dream land if it is for me. Drawing does this justification of making it a real thing out of my own perception towards what I feel when I do it. I guess that is the part which other people might not see it in the same way. In addition, drawing is more than just stretch out and pull some lines in a blank paper or in computer to make a beautiful picture to see, but your mind and soul drawn at the same time you do it. It will reach out to people in the same vibe as your mood when you make it. That is why this kind of work is not 'work only' but more like sharing your thoughts and feeling for others. For me, I just let my hand leads the way when I draw something without thinking too much about mistakes I probably make in the process and result. I literary not thinking at all when I do it. It takes guts, persistence, passion and years of learning but it is worth it. Practically the best remedy I can get whenever thinking is becoming too much and turn it all up to focus on just one thing. 

What matters the most above all is the miracle box. A box where you can find bunch of cool imaginary things to put in your creation called ideas. You can never tell when or where or how on earth this box 'poof' suddenly appears out of nowhere, because it is depend on your own effort. You can only do it by finding something that can trigger its existence. Perhaps this is the answer for the question I've mentioned above. Miracle box a.k.a ideas, is there in every person although it certainly not in the same shape or form. Let's say, one day it will be gold and another day is only a priceless rock. However, if you keep honing the skill, one day it will turn out to be diamonds and who knows, it'll make you rich. In term of : as long as you like and enjoy what you do (not limited to drawing actually), whatever that is. Just for note though, miracle box sometimes is not there when you need one, especially in stressful environment, lost concentration and deadly deadline with ugly mood. The best way would be the great skill of surviving and struggling in those situations by mastering the mind to be intact. 

Perhaps, this is just a nonsensical thought of mine, being imaginatively explain something out of proportion, but truly, this is my thought's honest truth related to what I do. 

*Mood: Out of the blue want to write something after quite some times.     
* Pic: my wannabe 3D-like wood box  with bunch of sparkling lights back then several years ago.

Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany’s



A couple of months ago I was into watching old classical movies from the 40s, 50s and 60s with distinctive beautiful actresses whom one of them is Audrey Hepburn.

At first, I did a lot of reading through Wikipedia for her biography and movie references.  Breakfast at Tiffany’s was one of her biggest and iconic role throughout her career and landed an Oscar award in her hand. 

However, the trivia as well as controversy about this movie was one thing, the writer whom his book the movie was based on, wanted Marilyn Monroe (who eventually declined out of fear for bad reputation due to the role background) to portray the main character and hated Audrey for taking the role. Anyway, I will not discuss this any further nor the story of the movie but only the costumes worn by Audrey in the 60s styles dress and coat, also the other woman in the story who got a very interesting coats.

Most of the times she wore this iconic black sleeveless dress with variation of either long hand gloves, signature big shades/eye glasses, white scarf or several types of hat. Other than that she mostly use gentle color coats, dress, shirt and sleek long pants and jeans. I also noticed the other woman in the story wore several nice blazer and coats matched with elegant turban or other hats. Somehow I like the color tones in all wardrobes of this movie, it was so oldie but Goldie. 
I screen-captured from the movie for the clothes for referring to what I’ve written above while singing the famous "Moon river" song.
