Step 1: Step : 1 : Making the Skeleton

Use any wire you want make a skeleton.

I used (I don't know what is it called) scissors that cut metal. And the count of CDs is
approximate it depends on the size of dragon...

Nice job!

These scissors are called "tin snips". It's a weird name.

Yes exactly, I have about 200 old CDs and don't know what to do with them. And this was the best way to use them.

Sorry, I need to read more carefully (and not just be dazzled by the images). I see you said you used ~15 old CDs.
