Shingeki no Musical. We’re all dying together!
Decided to check back in on how many notes this has and I am going to have a fucking heart attack.

Michele Carragher, the head embroider on Game of Thrones, made this awesome tutorial to show how she created the dragonscale fabric that appears on several of Daenarys’ costumes in S3 and S4.
Ms. Carragher says that the dragonscale fabric was created because “In season 3 the Costume Designer Michele Clapton wanted a Dragonscale like textured embroidery that starts to emerge on three of Daenery’s costumes, which becomes heavier and more pronounced, growing and evolving as the season progresses” (Carragher).
In stages 9-11 of the tutorial we see how the textile evolves from lightly to heavily embellished. This progression is meant to illustrate Daenarys’ personal growth and the growth of her dragons (source).
Don’t care about Game of Thrones but that shit is cool
I didn’t learn about sewing as much as I learned that, no matter what she currently gets, Ms Carragher isn’t paid enough.
- breath in for 4 seconds
- hold your breath for 7 seconds
- exhale breath for 8 seconds
repeat once or twice more.
This causes an autonomic nervous system shift from a sympathetic (fight or flight reaction) state to a parasympathetic response.
Use this for panic/anxiety attacks, exams, presentations.
Never not reblog
Tumblr got anxiety advice. Fuck yeah.
Read this earlier, and it helped me a lot tonight.
So like I PHYSICALLY CAN’T do this. Even in a resting state. Am I diseased or something?
I can just barely do it, but not for long - I need to breathe way more often than that, and I get really close to running out of air to exhale in that last 8 second bit.
Also while biology is not my strong point I am pretty sure that this post is mostly bs.
While I don’t know much about the switch between sympathetic and parasympathetic, breathing exercises do help control your heart rate and can calm you down.
That said, in for 4, hold for 7, out for 8 is a little ridiculous. I prefer in for 4, out for 4 (musician lol), but you can try in for 4, out for 6, in 5 out 6, etc.,
But, like everything, YMMV.
Breathing exercises need to be practiced. You can’t just change your breathing in the middle of a panic attack and expect it to go away, because breathing like that kind of makes you feel like you’re suffocating at first, which MAKES YOU PANIC MORE. Also, there’s no magic breathing exercise that works if you do it “once or twice.” Depending on your brand of panic attack, you might need to focus on your breathing for anywhere between five minutes and hours.
I’ve also heard of 7/11 breathing (in for seven, out for eleven) but tbh I can’t do it. The numbers don’t really matter. The important thing is to breathe slow, and to breathe out longer than you breathe in, because exhaling is the part that lowers your heart rate. (I have been hooked up to biofeedback machines to prove this. It was kinda cool.)
Also, I had a breathing exercise where you start out in for two, out for four ( or something like that) and gradually slow down until you’re doing like 8/10 or whatever. That’s way more useful than this stupid 4/7/8 stuff. But again, PRACTICE when you’re not having a panic attack first, so that it feels comfortable and safe, not new and scary, when you are having one.
Source: I did a heckton of breathing exercises when I was first getting treated for anxiety. I think I still have the audio files if anyone wants them.
I find that counting slowly and concentrating on making my breathing and heart rate match the slow count in my head works better for me.
Also having someone’s hand on rubbing my back in slow circles weirdly calms my heart rate down a lot and makes me feel a lot calmer. Same with someone giving me a very tight hug. Probably because it’s really hard to have shallow, fast breathing when someone is hugging you tightly.
But actual breathing in and then out for a specific count number doesn’t work because I feel like I have to abide by the numbers no matter what or how I feel and that panics me more. Just letting my breath out as slow as possible works far better than relying on some number.
