This is my care of magical creatures submission for the HP Summer Session.

Meet Toothless

 (yes I know different book/movie)

When I decided to make a dragon for my care of magical creatures assignment.  There could only be one choice, even if it meant tiptoeing out of the HP universe.  One of our favorite dragons around here is definitely Toothless from "How to Train Your Dragon."



He is made using material from a pair of super soft pants I bought at our local Salvation army, at 25 Tuesday.   Grin  Using this tutorial from Katy-A on deviantart. 

With just a few changes:
My Toothless is scaled down a little. I needed to make sure I would have enough material and space is tight around here so we needed the smallest dragon that was reasonable.
Wing tip to wing tip, he is 18 inches. Nose to tail, he is 14 inches.
I also added pipe cleaner to the upper part of the wings so I could flex them and have them keep their shape.

A detail shot of his missing tail fin.

Which I will make a prothetic for when I can get back to 25 Tuesday and find a suitable leathery fabric.

It is so hard to get really good pictures of all that black.

I absolutely love the magical creature!  (and tiptoeing out of the HP verse is what makes the new twist fab....even if I do say so myself Wink)  Fantastic job!
