Toothless by refira Toothless by refira
My Toothless costume for Eurocosplay 2012. Just a picture to show what the whole costume looked like overall. I was one of the 2 British representitives (and I really like the British flag picture they took for that so I put it here too), and came 3rd overall in the competition, which I really wasn't expecting and made me very happy. ^^

first photo is by Pouncy of DJC Photography, the rest were taken by doomiscool. ^^

What's the head made out of? Mine was made from fire foam with latex rubber on the outside so it wouldn't break. It was super heavy so next year ill edit it

This is my favorite Toothless costume yet!:D If you don't mind me asking, what material did you use for the suit and how did you make the mask?:)

Hi Jessica! ^^

The whole costume is made of various types of foam covered in a high-quality black faux fur. There is no one material used for the whole thing; but with any type of mascot costume/fursuit/character costume generally foams are used as the base to build up the shape.

Have you made any costumes before? If not, there are many good guides available online that explain the basics of fursuit/creature costume making if you want to attempt to make a costume of your own; I am a professional costume maker soon to start a full-time job with a professional mascot-making company, so this is quite a high level costume and includes many of the skills I have accumulated over the years I have been constructing this type of suit. As with all arts practice is the key to getting good - the materials are not as important as the methods; there is no right or wrong answer as to how to make things and there is a lot of room for flexibility depending on budget/time/available materials - but Toothless is foam-based as I specialize in costumes made this way. :)

Thanks for the response. I really appreciate the advice.:) I've never made a real costume/fursuit before, but I have been reading alot of online tutorials. I'm happy with how it's going so far. I just hope I can have it finished by Halloween, haha!:D Thank you.

it looks kind of small but it is really cool

Thank you. ^^

He's small because I'm quite small myself. He ended up as more of a chibi/baby Toothless in the end. :XD:
