If you’re going to be walking around a convention all day, comfort is an important consideration. I can’t think of a more cozy option than attending a convention in pajamas that double as cosplay. Angela Clayton can help you with your cosplay pjs goal; she made a Toothless pajama set. Toothless is an adorable Night Fury dragon from the How to Train Your Dragon franchise. She turned his front half — complete with ears and scales — into a cozy hoodie and made shorts to match.
Angela’s a skilled seamstress — we’ve featured her Elsa cosplay in the past — and made sketches before she started sewing. She decided to use the following fabric:
I have some normal black minky, some black double sided fuzzy fabric, and more double sized fuzzy fabric in red. I also used scraps of the brown and ivory fabrics from my Appa hoodie. And for lining the horns I bought black flannel.
She used the See & Sew B4329 pattern as a base for the pieces. You can learn how to make your own take on Toothless with a how-to at her blog or by following her YouTube video tutorials:
