Hello members of the interwebs,
Have you ever wondered what your life is missing?
Is it potatoes? Dirty dishes? Famine? Meteors? An understanding of string theory?
No, it's none of THOSE things. What your life is missing is more GIANT DRAGON PUPPETS. But fear not, for now you too can build your very own giant dragon puppet! Think of all the uses! Haloween props, putting on a play, scaring your friends, entertaining at children's birthday parties, washing your car*, mowing your lawn**, ending world hunger!*** The uses are endless!!!!!!****
*Dragon puppets can't do this
**Nope, not this either
****Uses for a dragon puppet are not actually endless.
YOU WILL NEED
PVC Pipe (1 1/4inch width, 1/2 inch width)
Fabric (two colors)
A sewing machine (or just a lot of time on your hands)
A card table
Ready now? then off we go!!!
Step 1: Making the Head
You are going to want to make your dragon head out of something light-weight. We carved ours out of styrofoam, but you can form it from any method you choose. (other good options would be carving it out of felt-foam or sculpting with caulking foam.)
Make sure that it is sturdy and has a flat surface at the back of the head where the neck will attach.
Earlier designs had the head and jaw be separate pieces to allow the mouth to open. Based on how skilled a sculptor/electrician you are, you might want to add LED lights for eyes or a fog machine to make him breathe fire.
