This is my Donna the Pteranodon costume for the library Dinosaur Party.  I know  a pteranodon is not technically a dinosaur.  The kids were cool about it.

It's made from fleece and the head, the feet, and the wings are padded out with foam so they can maintain their shape.  I can see out of an opening underneath the beak that is covered in one way fabric.

I used Ludi's tutorial to make the head based on a miniature plastic model of a pteranodon.

Thanks Ludi!

This is fabulous!  And thanks for directing me to the tute.  What thickness of foam did you use, and where did you get it?

The thing about believing that you can do anything is that you actually do things!

Thanks, dulcet.  I used 1" upholstery foam from Joann Fabrics.
