You think my staff is incredible? I'm so happy! My grandma was all like "Oh no, you won't be able to do that!"
Basically, I cut the shape of the dragon's head out of cardboard, then I cut some garden wire into the shape of the curves and glue gunned and taped them. Then I put newspaper around the wire, and then used mod roc (don't use this! It crumbles, I use mod roc for sculpture now and not cosplay props) and then I papier mached it. I painted it with acrylic paints, probably 2-3 coats.
That's it! It's currently residing in my loft, as it started to break a little during Expo, but I'm thinking of giving it away
