 Hey Craftsters! I need your help! Okay, my mom is a 2nd grade teacher and she's putting on a play called the Reluctant Dragon. She asked me to make the dragon costume for this little boy.
 I can make the feet and tail pretty easily I think. And I figure he can just wear green clothes. The only thing I have no idea about is the head. Can anyone help me out here? I have to idea where to even begin with this. Thank you very much for reading!

To be worn at school and possibly again next year? Special! With crappy hand drawn pictures!

cut your hood shape in fabric 4 times, 2 outsides & 2 linings (right & left)
cut your hood shape in batting or thin foam 2 times.
Sandwich an outter, a batting & a lining and sew. repeat with remaining pieces. now you have a right side & a left side. If you want points or fun bits down the center of the head, put these on one side before sewing 2 halves together Smiley Sew two halves together & turn right side out.

The foam or batting should be enongh to keep the face free and vision & breathing safe for a child.

Penlowe's suggestion looks great.  Also, there are some tutorials for dino hoodies in the clothing section, you could alter a green hoodie to have spikes like a dragon.

Oh, Penlowe thank you so much! That looks very cute. And vanderwaals: Oh, man! I see those dinosaur hoodies all the time on here but it never even crossed my mind to use that for something like this. Thank you both for replying, I think I have a better idea of what I want to make now.. and I don't think it'll be nearly as difficult as I thought. Cheesy

My dd went as a dragon last Halloween, and what really made her costume was the belly I made.

I had some scaly material kicking around in my stash, cut strips, sewed them together to make a segmented-looking breastplate. Halter straps can be hidden under the hood, and straps around the bottom of the back can be tucked into pants. Also makes dress-up wicked fun, as it's pretty much one-size-fits-all Smiley

Glad to help!  You must post photos once you've finished! Smiley
