Upcycled Dragon Head Mask

In 2020, in response to a Halloween build challenge, I made a dragon mask almost entirely out of reused materials (cardboard, paper, magazine cutouts, wire, soda tabs), plus some white paint for the paperboard teeth and a small string of battery-powered fairy lights behind the eyes. It occurs to me that I never posted about it here, and I’d like to show you the costume that came out of it which I wore at last year’s Labyrinth of Jareth Masquerade Ball. (I called it Thordak after Critical Role’s BBEG – pin in the photo below says “TPK Incoming”)

You can find full build notes on my instructables post, and if you’d like to make a very simple papercraft version, you can download the above pattern I made for a papercraft workshop.
