Dragonzilla stalking the night
|Costume type:||Costumes for Adults|
This homemade costume for adults entered our 2019 Halloween Costume Contest.
A word from Silvia, the 'Dragonzilla' costume creator:
Well this was definitely hard than I thought. Iíve always been fascinated with costumes. Now that the kids are grown it was my turn to give it a try. And like they say ďif at first you donít succeed, try try try try again!Ē And believe me, i tried. Unfortunately my photographers that I enlisted for duty didnít take the best photos.
I started off by making wooden platform shoes or stilts. I thought I would be fun to be giant size. Then trying to come up with giant size idea. So sitting in the corner was a basketball return hoop. So I grabbed it and put it over my head. It rested nicely on my shoulders and had a curve to it. Dragon came to mind so I started the paper mache process. I thought it came out dragon like. My kids said Godzilla. So with stilts for feet and head made started sewing body. Semi pleased with final result. When I walked around the neighborhood everyone lived it. Was even able to scare a few kids.
Hope you like it!
