Dragon Keeper Costume

This is a Dragon Keeper Costume for my son. It's got a silicone skin and tongue, flex-foam teeth and horns, carbon fiber under skull and jaw and resin eyes. His container is EVA foam. The upper palate lights up to indicate fire.

The Stan Winston School made this project possible and saved me tons of money in mistakes.
