The horribly, terrifyingly, cute pink dragon

My daughter announced that she wanted to be a pink dragon for a costume party she was going to attend. This is what resulted. It features a string that she can pull to make the mouth open and close. I'm planning to use this costume as a prototype to produce a dragon costume in multiple colors made from durable PVC plastic and nylon webbing. All photos by Jennifer Owen of Jen Martin Studios.

Lamellar Armor

Here are a few images of lamellar torso armor that I constructed. For those who are not familiar with lamellar, it is armor comprised of small plates laced together. Mine is made out of durable, thick black plastic for use in the SCA. I'm glad my blog doesn't broadcast smell as I'm rather sweaty in the last picture.
