Toothless the Dragon Dog Costume

Day 105

Well my sewing machine is full of blue glitter and I will suck it out tomorrow with the Kirby. I swear I have glitter embedded in my skin permanently but its all good cause this is the cutest thing ever and if this dog does not win the costume contest I will be sad, sad, sad lol, just kidding but he will get lots of 'oh he is soooo adorable' squealing comments and I hope the owner takes a picture of him in it for me.

This entire costume was made from a beautiful sparkly blue stretchy material evening gown type dress. Going green, yea that's right....the whole costume was completely designed by myself, no pattern--can I hear a 'whoop whoop?' oh yea

Tomorrow he is coming over (with his owner) to try it on. Here is the sketch and G1's toy that I borrowed for the week for inspiration.

Hat with the cute little Toothless ears...you can't see the straps but they were the straps cuts off from the neckline strap of the dress ...I cut them in half and put a velcro on the bottom.

Love my elephant model but he could only partially model cause I couldn't fit it over his body.

Here is the dragon view from the back....he has 3 sets of wings and these are the tail ones. We supported the veins of the wings with clipped pieces of wire from clothing hangers.

The ridges down the back were formed by a strip of fabric sewn into 'v's' and turned inside out and they don't go all the way down they start behind the wings and go to the bottom of the tail. These are also the middle set of wings.

The mid section between the mid and back wings on the tail showing the ridges.

The first main wings could not be as big as I wanted because I did not have enough fabric to make bigger but they work well on a coat hanger wire shaped frame. I sewed little pockets so they can be taken in and out but I might end up sewing them on if they don't stay on when he has the costume on.

The wings are about 12" long and I thank my hub for shaping them so nicely.

The wings set into the pockets.

Can you tell this is a dragon? Oh so deliciously cute!!

...And this is all that is leftover from the beautiful dress....

Starting on the 2nd Halloween stitchery today since this took longer than expected so should have that done in the AM. What did you create today?

  1. Hi. I think this is awesome! Could you make something similar for a cat? If so, how much would it cost?
