My daughter watches us raid sometimes, and during one Dragon Soul encounter, she decided she wanted to be “The Red Dragon Lady!”…which, as most of you should know is Alexstraza the Life-Binder:
Well, My daughter is 9, sooo that just wasn’t happening. Maybe when she’s 30…and I’m dead….maybe.
So we searched over all the dragonkin we could think of that she may like and we found this image of Chromie:
And my daughter absolutely loved it. So, I sat out to find the stuff to make my girl child into Chromie. (*note* we did use the shoulders from Chromie in Andorhal image as our basis to make the ones in the photo)
I bought a child’s choir robe, a child’s black graduation stole, some various embellishments, a blue pendant and a blonde wig. I did the entire costume with a (low temp) hot glue gun and some tacky glue. Kurby constructed the shoulders out of felt, black paint and more embellishment.
All in all, the costume probably cost me about 40 dollars to make, including all the supplies to put it together, and it made me one entirely happy child! She really enjoyed seeing replies to her photo on twitter! Thank you to everyone who gave the kind words and encouragement as we were piecing the costume together and getting opinions!
