Picture of Dragon Costume
My Halloween costume this year was a dragon, inspired by Ysera in World of Warcraft. I created all the costume pieces, including the prosthetics. This project definitely consumed all my free time for the past 3 months and it took about 6 hours to get myself ready when I wore it. But it was all worth it just so I could be a dragon!

Step 1: Reference and Sketch

Picture of Reference and Sketch
I start all my costumes with reference images and sketching. I took most of my inspiration from Ysera, a dragon in World of Warcraft. I highly recommend doing a quick sketch, even if you think you're bad at drawing. It's amazing how much it helps as a reference while you work.

This is amazing. I have wanted to do something like this for so long but have known nothing of prosthetics. Can I ask how you made your wonderful talon covers for your high heels??

Hey Breanna,

A couple things.

Firstly glad to see in your area they still actually celebrate Halloween. Here in S Florida Halloween is all but a memory of Holidays not celebrated anymore. Let alone anyone dresses up or decorates for... I so miss the fun and costume parties and contests and seeing what people would wear that night... such is life in S Florida i guess.

Secondly - HOLY SMOKING DRAGONS! Your costume is totally bitchin' !!! Last time I saw one that good was a freind of mine that came as Pin Head. His costume was spot on to the movie. He won all the contests in the club curcuit. that year.

So thanx for the instructable and sharing your costume build - you did a freakin great job! and what a pose for it! And the memories of good times now gone.

I hope you had a great time Halloween night.
take care.
