Introduction: Chinese Parade Dragon for Under $75
Chinese Parade Dragon for Under $75I was given a challenge to make a Chinese parade dragon in two days for under $50, I completed said challenge and you can see the results. For the camp ceremony there needed to be a flap so a person could stand behind it and blow fire. I was going to make the dragon do that on it's own, but my budget was limited, I couldn’t find what I needed to make it work for the budget…and did I mention I had only two days! I am calling this under seventy-five dollars to create because I did have some materials on hand and would venture those to be around twenty-five dollars to get if you bargain hunt.. My biggest regret is not taking more pictures of the progress or I would have made an instructable on it. Some of the photos are at night, and yes I did make his eyes glow. He was pretty cool and it was a highlight of the ceremony!
