This year, my daughter wanted to be Spyro the dragon from the Skylanders game. I was just going to buy her costume but I waited til Tuesday to go buy it and the store had none. I didn't want to disappoint her so I went home and ordered a purple wig with one day shipping and started planning. Wednesday night, I went to Walmart and bought 2 fleece throws and 3 yards of tulle and got to work with my sewing machine and glue gun. The wig arrived just in time on Halloween afternoon so it miraculously all got finished!

The wings were made with an orange fleece blanket, two wire hangers, and some craft foam all hot glued together.

The tail was attached with an elastic band around her waist. The tutu tied on with the opening left for the tail.

The horns were fleece and sewed into the wig.

The top was just a tube with a yellow strip hot glued to the front. The wings attached with elastic to the front of the top and the base glued to the back.
She was extremely happy with her costume and made sure to tell everyone at every house we stopped at to look at her tail. The tail and wings bounced around with every step. I tried to get a video but it was too dark
Thanks for looking!
