Cosplayer Gladzy Kei loves Toothless and came up with a human warrior take on the character inspired by How to Train Your Dragon 2. The finished costume is comprised of multiple armor pieces, leather, fur, and LEDs. Gladzy Kei said:
Everything was made out of Worbla’s Finest Art, Transpa Art, Friendly Plastic, and Apoxie Sculpt, primed with woodglue and painted with acrylics! I sealed the paint using Satin paint sealer so it doesn’t crack (even though mine still kind of did because I should have put more coats!)
She was inspired by Kamui Cosplay’s Book of Cosplay Lights and used LEDs for the first time ever for this costume. She says it helped her overcome her fear of soldering and handling circuits. To get the spikes on the helmet (close up below), she used Transpa Art (that’s transparent Worbla) and painted it with blue nail polish to diffuse the glow from the LEDs.
You can see more photos of the Toothless build in progress below and at Gladzy Kei’s Facebook page.
