A Costume That Turns Toothless the Dragon into a Human

Toothless the dragon becomes Toothless the human with Winter Parades Cosplay’s new ensemble. Also known as Sarah, Winter Parades Cosplay took the Viking looks from the animated film How to Train Your Dragon to come up with this unique take on the cat-like dragon star. She incorporated wings and a tail into her ensemble, but my favorite details are her use of Toothless’ pebbled reptilian skin on the armor and horns. She used clay to make the horns:

I made them out of Model Magic and painted them in black. The main part of the ears are covered in Matte mod podge and the scales are covered in a gloss mod podge.

Get a closer look at the texture in the below photos.
