The Making of a Dragon Rider

I don't exactly remember how it happened - was it all Sasha's idea? Did Mom and Dad plant the notion in her little brain? Did it result from the natural metamorphosis of ideas? The world may never know. But one thing is for certain - our girl is going to be a kick-a dragon rider for Halloween this year. No more sissy Rainbow Fairies for this family! Here we document the making of a dragon rider, Morningstar style:
Step 1 - Start with 1 hand-me-down pink unicorn (sissy)

Step 2 - Dye pink unicorn green only to find out that, three days later, only Mommy's fingers remain green.  Give up on dying and go with fabric paint.  Also apply puffy paint scales because it feels awesome to channel your 80's puffy paint roots.

Step 3 - Sew claws and teeth onto unicorn-come-dragon

Step 4 - Make awesome dragon rider vest, buy aviator goggles in Disneyland, and repurpose brother's Jedi boots

Step 5 - Ham it up

Step 5, continued

Step 6 - Try it all out with the dragon

Step 6, continued

Step 7 - Take the whole ensemble out for a test-gallop

And, Step 8, because I know you were waiting for this one, add flame throwers and flash paper.  But you're just going to have to wait until Halloween for those pics!

Jamie great job!! Unbelievably cute and the costume is terrific too!!

Now what is Steve creating for the boys? I can hardly wait but I don't think he can top the port-a-potty of last year.

Happy Halloween!
