I realize that this cosplay ended up on DA faster than I could upload any photos of it, and the pictures other people took are indeed worlds better than mine, but here's a comp for y'all.
Anyway, here we go. If you've followed my little blurb on the front page you could see my panicking over this cosplay, but it got done in time for AnimeNEXT 2011 and ended up at Connecticon 2011 too! If you saw us, I want to tell you we had an absolutely marvelous time at both conventions, and thanks for snapping a picture. ;^; Seriously. <3
This cosplay is actually for my mother, so I was not inside this suit. (I was in the sweatsuit/Tsukimi cosplay) It was harder to build because I had to sit her down and have her throw it on a lot. My brother was Hiccup, I made his cosplay too. The Astrid in these pictures is a good friend of my brother's. (They were adorable! X3)
Right! So specs; The jaw moves, the wings are semi-pose-able, they can spread out to about 2 and 1/2 feet on each side with assistance. (I was the assistance for my mom)
You can see a video of the Toothless cosplay in action at AnimeNEXT 2011 here:
About 1 minute and 32 seconds into the video. ^^[link]
Also here! At Connecticon 2011 2 minutes and 48 second in!:[link]
Toothless: My mother (no DA account)
I do not claim the character Toothless or How to Train your Dragon in any way, I just made the scraggly costume of wire and fur!
If you have any questions feel free to ask! :3
