The final form before details are added in.
The head. The neck foam was a necessary addition.
Test with back legs. The back legs weren't well thought-out and had to be ditched.
The tail completed with spikes.
The costume, essentially feature-complete (except for eyes, teeth and wings).
Note the wires coming from the wings; the wings flap, but I routed the wire incorrectly when assembling the costume backstage and wasn't able to show that.
All packed up in my Honda Fit. The costume broke into four piece specifically for transport needs.
