Furry dragon costume by zarathus Furry dragon costume by zarathus
My first attempt at a full costume using fake fur.

Learned a lot from this, there is much I would like to change or do different next time.

Made some smallish digitgrade stilts, and the wings also fold out when the wearer extends their arms.

Furry dragon costume by ~zarathus For a first time fursuit zarathus  effort shows a lot of promise. Her attention to proportions, and the execution of the wings show that this deviant is one to encourage. ( Suggested by Chrysshart and Featured by FrockTarts )

Hey! How did you make the wings look so real? I'm working on a Toothless costume for my dog (and I'll be Hiccup) and I'm not sure how to go about doing that.

I've been meaning to comment on this; when I first saw it in a group's gallery, when I saw it on the front page, and now I'm finally doing it, now that it's a DD.

The work on this is just stunning. I find it amazing that the wings extend with the arms! I also watched the video, and the fur on the end of the tail is just adorable when it moves.

(I also respect the fact that you haven't hidden the negative comments towards this suit. It just leaves us the evidence of how close-minded some people are. All they see is the disgusting side of the fandom, instead of the workmanship and beauty that a fursuit has. )

Holy Bananas! That must have taken you forever! I would love to do something like that for the LARP group I am in, but our weather down here in Texas I would end up in the hospital due to heatstroke.

Eep, very possibly! It gets very hot very quick in this, the fur is very long and it also has foam padding around some parts of the body such as the chest.
And thank you kindly! It took a while, yeah.

Haha thank you. The condescending furry comments are kinda odd, people are very quick to recoil in horror at any creature art that could be interpreted as "furry" it seems.

No problem, I think this piece of art is beyond great and for people to judge someone by there art and there beliefs in life is just stupid. To be honest, Psychologically speaking, he probably has a furry fetish and lashes out at others because it scares him.
