DIY Dragon Costume | Free Kids Costume Tutorial

DIY Dragon Costume

My son had his little heart absolutely set on being a red and orange dragon for Halloween. I did my best to make it happen! You can too with this DIY Dragon Costume.

I didn’t take any pictures along the way but it’s actually a pretty simple costume.

DIY Dragon Costume Patterns

For his tail I used the free pattern from Running with Scissors

His pants are the Essential Sweats or you could purchase some solid pants

The sweatshirt is the Classic Sweatshirt and before I sewed the 2 hood pieces together I added some orange felt triangles in-between the seams to make the spikes. I also added a patch of orange felt to the front sweatshirt piece for the dragon’s tummy. If you’d like you could purchase a plain sweatshirt, cut the hood seam open, add the spikes and then sew it shut again.

His wings were made using the Wonderland Wings pattern. I used the same sweatshirt fleece as the rest of his outfit for the wings which was a bit bulky. Next time I will definitely follow the pattern directions and use cotton for the wings 🙂 There’s your kids diy dragon costume!
