A word from Aubry, the 'How to Train Your Dragon' costume creator:

How to train a Dragon Costume.
When my son told his Grandma he wanted to be a dragon for Halloween she was super excited. She happened to have a dragon she already made for my brother about 15 years ago and luckily she kept it. Of course sheís a perfectionist when it comes to Halloween costumes so she may as well have started over with all the changes she made. This costume has nothing to do with the movie, we havenít even seen the second one yet. Anyway, the only part of that 15 year old costume she reused was the head and she changed that quite a bit. The original costumeís head was made on a baseball cap glued to a 2 liter bottle. Itís pretty heavy but my son was a good trooper and didnít complain about it. She then used Dip ní Drape (do you remember that stuff?) to form the face and the details. To update it she added different eyes that are made out of a plastic Christmas ornament that twists open, and wired battery operated Christmas lights that change colors inside of the ornaments. She says battery operated lights have come a long way since my brother and I were little. She cut up swim pool noodles to make spikes on the back of the head and used more of the lights to stuff inside those spikes. She painted some premade dragon wings to match the blue and attached a tail that is also a swim pool noodle cut and shaved to the right shape then covered in fabric. To get it to stay curved she stuffed it with a hard wire. The suit is a genie costume from Aladdin with the red belt taken off. She glued foam claws onto gloves for his hands. At school my son got all of the attention. One lady followed us out and had to touch it and try to figure out how it was made. I think everybody went home with a picture of their kid and mine!
