Pete’s Dragon Costume

Posted by Jessica LaBarrePosted ago

This was one of the most fun costumes I created for my daughter. The head was completely crafted out of cardboard…while the eyes were made using fillable ornaments…the beauty of those is when you paint on the inside the outside looks super realistic and shiny like real eyes. After constructing the head it was time to hot glue the fur on. The bodysuit was made by doing a rough outline of her regular clothes on the floor…cutting it out and sewing it together. The tail I filled with the large packing balloons they send in packages in the mail…it was perfect…light but effective. She absolutely loved this costume and the neighborhood went nuts over it. Very satisfying to have your child love something you hand made so much.
