This homemade costume for adults entered our 2013 Halloween Costume Contest.
A word from Klay, the 'Asian Dragon' costume creator:
I wanted a costume that could combine a great articulated wing design from a fellow instructable user, shoot steam and possibly utilize stilts. Dragon seemed to fit the requirements. The costume uses a lot of EVA foam (aka cross-linked polyethylene foam). The head was made of sheets of foam, backed with cardboard, and supported with metal strapping to form a mounting structure. The eyes are acrylic plastic with transparent model paint. The horns are paper mache over wire mesh. The nose is made from hundreds of tiny scale shaped pieces of foam hot glued over a metal wire frame. The wings articulate and hinge backward so I can fit through doorways. The hands use duct tape scales. You can't see it, but there is also a tail. I hope you enjoy. Happy Halloween!
