    Wonderful tutorial, and if I may say, without sounding like an Internet creep, you look seriously lovely! Awesome costume, as well. :)

    Wow. This is really cool. I love the technique to get the scale look, is this your own idea or did you find this some where?

    Thank you so much! A part of the scale look is my own idea (using white and blue color technic ) but using the net is very usual way to make the scales (and the easiest one) :-)
