Artisans Xaria Knight and Bryan Poole of Pixie Shadow Craft create wearable art for the “modern day warrior.” Combining traditional fabrication techniques—think Medieval chain mail—with a contemporary aesthetic, they produce dragon scale armor, gloves, and harnesses for use in cosplay or as a statement-making addition to your everyday attire.
The unique pieces incorporate the stainless steel chain mail with layers of metal scallops. Together, the bold dragon scales and tiny links dazzle, because their textures are so different in both color and proportion. The result excites the eye while remaining practical; chain mail offers structural integrity and ensures that the designs hug the body in all the right places.
By contrast, the dragon scales are glitzy and stylish. Their iridescent coloring adds a sculptural effect to the cosplay fashion that looks elegant and feels regal. When you wear Knight and Poole’s pieces, it’s easy to imagine that you’re part of an army from long ago. Or, if you’re a Game of Thrones fan, the mother of dragons.
