Just about a month ago we featured a costume of a human version of Smaug the Magnificent from The Hobbit that was almost done. Kialna Cosplay finished the build in time for AnimeCon, and the results are amazing. Since last time she added horns to the head and built and installed a dragon tongue. She also added LEDs to the inside of the mask for the firebreathing effect. Even though the costume looks wonderful, she’s already planning to improve Smaug in the near future.
