So after I completed my first ever paper mache project (Bunny head) my kids decided I needed a challenge. They wanted to be Toothless and Light Fury from How to Train Your Dragon. I had no idea how I would go about this. I searched your patterns and decided your Frog head would make a great shape to start. After putting your pattern together, I built up the eyebrow area to match the character with foil and masking tape. After paper mache was complete, I added elastic in back, buckram so they could see, and lots of paint. As you can see, the dragon wings actually opened up and flapped. I used footsie pajamas for the ‘body’.
So a frog can become a dragon!

what a great idea…I loved that movie….great job…do I see a golf club hooked to wings?
So cute and so inventive. The best is always home-made.
Wow – I’ll bet you and your kids had the best costumes in town! They look fantastic. 🙂
