Being such a timeless and enchanting feature of fiction for so long it is hardly surprising that these giant reptiles get mimicked at parties, parades, plays and shows around the world. If you are wanting to go to a forthcoming event dressed as a fierce and fantastic dragon, take a look at the following steps in creating the ultimate scary dragon look.
The Make Up
It’s safe to say that when dressing up as a dragon, you’ll need plenty of face paint. One of the greatest things about face paint is that you can craft a myriad of authentic looks in a simple and cost-effective way.
An authentic dragon look can be easily produced with some creative and generous use of face paint. Create a silvery scaly look by flicking shades of silver and blue scallop shapes across your cheeks.
On your forehead, concentrate on crafting some elaborate diamond shapes to generate a stunning dragon-like look. Don’t leave any part of your body untouched. Complete the look by painting your lips in an elaborately fearsome dragonish color such as glittery silver or dark deathly blue.
