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!


What's that? by Kimbosauruss, on Flickr
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.


Rawr! by Kimbosauruss, on Flickr
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 Sad

Thanks for looking! Cheesy

Wow!  That's so great that you finished in time!  (My kids were 15 min late for school on Halloween because I was finishing a costume.)  But you have to be careful with this kind of thing or she'll believe that Mom can create anything and ask for more and more complex costumes each year!

Awesome! I'll have to show my boy...a Skylanders fan, who was Tree Rex this year, and see if he recognizes her. I'm betting he will. The details are so great! Super work on getting the horns to keep their shape and position by sewing them to the wig. Wink

Thank you!

Oh I hope she does! I love a challenge! I was secretly hoping the store didn't have the costume so I could make a cuter version and figure out the wings. I'm not a big fan of most store bought costumes  Cheesy

I love the bright colors!! And the wings are awesome as well. It's very detailed. I went to my local Walmart to find bright purple tulle, kind of like what you used but didn't have luck. So I tried this site: http://www.papermart.com/premium-colored-tulle-in-bolts/id=10925 and found some. I'm going to have to try making your dragon costume with my leftover tulle.
