This Epic Fiberglass Dragon was commissioned for a renaissance style wedding. It started out as a decorative piece, then the client decided that they wanted to be able to sit on the Dragon to take photos and then keep it outside of their place of business, year round. We had to build it not only structurally sound, to take the weight of people riding her, but durable enough to stay outside…in Michigan! We build the dragon with a sturdy wooden frame and wrapped it in foam. We made the wings out of chicken wire, then paper mached them with a thick kraft paper. We then coated the whole Dragon with a foam cover to harden and protect the foam and paper. We then fiberglassed the whole body, and painted it with many different layers, bringing out the detail.

We also worked with the Bride on the dress design and created her very own fairytale like wedding dress!
