I Spent Over 400 Hours Making An Animated Dragon Costume Out Of Foam (18 Pics)

Making a dragon costume is no easy feat. Especially when you spend two months making it and it wrecked me to no end. 12-hour workdays were really a thing for me at this point since I was crunching a hard deadline.

I was creating a dragon costume for the convention “BlizzCon.” Sadly, I didn’t win, but I gained a ton of experience with foam and 3D prints during the process of making this. I mean how many foam dragon costumes have you even seen being worn?
