I might have them be able to be attached in some way. Like to a shoulder piece. (See Courtoons picture here for a idea of what I'm talking about.  https://www.facebook.com/Courtoon/photos/pb.202669469746214.-2207520000.1403894514./815676421778846/?type=1&theater) Having all three might be difficult. Perhaps just have one. The one she is usually pictured with is Drogon as he is the biggest. You could also go with the whole my plushy is my purse idea - and have them have some kind of strap. I also saw someone once make a handbag to look like one of the eggs that she could use to pose with.

Do you have any advice as to how to affix or carry my dragons? I'm working on my Daenerys Targaryen costume and want to "carry" my 3 dragons around but cannot figure out how to carry them around in a way that isn't terribly cumbersome. Do you have any suggestions for me?

I am pming you as well.
Which Dany outfit are you thinking about?

This is important because I can suggest a few options based on which ones.

Does anyone have any advice on using white face paint?  I using mehron white for my Harley Quinn costume and I'm having trouble making it look even.  My one and only attempt I used a cosmetic sponge to apply it. 

Thanksies!

The soon-to-be ex has gone as Arkham Harley, and has used the Mehron white to success. Multiple applications with a sponge.

My not mentioned vote goes to painting tips.
I am not spending 300-1500 for actual or replicas of screen accurate props.
What I will do is buy something from goodwill that is close and work on it.
I got a Capt Jack Harkness-like coat at goodwill which is a Polish pea coat. So the coat style is very similar.
Then I got the RAF stripes from ebay and had my alteration lady sew them on for me.

This year I am making some guns from nerf guns and have them all painted black, but need some help in painting for realism.
I see some that have greyish marks and such. Maybe add a section on how to paint for the items we make.
Could be for a shield, or sword too.
