A word from Cynthia, the 'Toothless Dragon' costume creator:
This is Sargent, he was a stray dog 5 years ago but today he's toothless the Dragon.this movie inspired costume is made by hand with everyday materials you find laying around your house. a kong harness provides the base of the costume, leather electricans chaps cut to his size than ziptied to the harness. I used the straps from the chaps around his chest, to stop the costume from movng around. the wings are made of the stuff around copper wire, duct tape,coat hangers,elastic stretch band,and an old black dress. the spikes are paper mache covered styrofoam. i used screws, super glue,and calking to get them to stick to the leather.It took a lot longer than it sounds because i don't have a sewing machine, so i had to sew all the leather by hand! I also made a matching dragon trainer costume for myself, but of course it looks like dirt compared to my dogs. i spent more time on his than i did my own! I'm not going to lie and say he enjoyed wearing it, because he didn't, he kept getting his wings caught in bushes and on trees.
