Andreo’s Homemade Dragon Costume was put together by me, his Grandma Guerrero. I took a jacket and sweat pants as the foundation. This would serve two purposes, one I wouldn’t have to sew a complete outfit and it would be warm on Halloween night. Andreo will be showing off his outfit Halloween night so it will be warm.
I cut foam to make the scales down the back of the jacket and hood. I used felt to make the horns. The wings are wire and netting. The scales and tail is made of shiny blue material Then I sewed his shiny scales to his jacket. The black scales were sewn on the jacket and tails. The little horns and ears were put together and sewn on the hood.
Then I put together the tail with the same material as the blue scales, which I attached onto the pants.
When my children were young I always made their costumes so naturally when my grandson, Andreo was born I made his costume too. My children have been the Empire State Building with King Kong hanging on it, a can of SPAM, etc.
Halloween is everyday at our house, we are the Band DRACONIS.
