Featuring a paper mache dragon mask I made this year...
And a dragon hoodie my mom made for me in the year 2000... when I was in the fourth grade. Yeah, I only grew a little bit after then. This costume probably fits me BETTER now than it did back then!
When I wore this for school back in the day, I was adamant I wanted a full dragon FACE mask, not just an eye mask or facepaint. I wanted a full dragon snout. We ended up buying a cheap kid's T rex costume at the shop and using the brittle plastic mask from that for my dragon costume.
When the hoodie turned up again a while back and I realized it still FITS me, I knew I had to bring it back new and improved at some point. So I made the mask to match.
My mom made a lot of cool Halloween costumes for me when I was a kid. She was a big inspiration to me when it comes to building costumes. So it feels pretty cool to have made this in conjunction with her.
