Trapunto work, makes the wings look more real

The dark bronze fabric and the copper fabric make this dragon very eye catching

Adding the horns, claws takes a lot of extra time, but the effect is well worth it. All the dragon parts are wired and the bodies have full length armatures.10354688_654191144676575_4336682457998278101_n 1459724_654191221343234_8464236614097001438_n 10390563_655756467853376_7634734746820044104_n 10606514_655759637853059_4422096021276851889_n

Special Sprite Dragons finished for Dragon-con

Sprites

Teal Sprites

Pink Sprites

 

A swarm of Sprites!!!

Sprites have been specially hatched to be more magical, they love glitter, and all that glitters!  Most have faerie wings, a few take after a more distant dragon ancestor and have dragon wings.  They are attracted to bright colors and like to nest near flower patches and gardens.  Where they can be seen gathering nectar for their evening meals, although a few have mistaken faeries for flowers at times….never fear they do not bite…much.

Sprites are a new design, I was trying to find an easier/quicker dragon to make for shows, alas I’m only a little faster at hatching these than Nipper dragons,  so back to the drawing board for some tweaking. Perhaps I need more glitter on my desk.

I will at some point finish up the ones I have already cut out- more purple and pinks as I recall.  But after that I won’t be making any more exactly like these…maybe after I change a few things on them the sprites will make a comeback.

Or, I have thought the design might be a nice beginner dragon hatching pattern to sell.

If any Sprites make it back from the show I will list them on Etsy.

working on costumes

I’m pulling together a Victorian costume and a  Safari costume.                       Buying most of the pieces, ironically because I’ve been so busy sewing dragons, I do not have the time to sew a proper costume.  But I will have some amazing dragons to go along with the costumes..

Victorian costume

Dress purchased from “Victorian Choice”.  I also have the hooped slip,bustle, pantaloons, gloves,  parasol, and dressy black boots to match.

great dress, I could not have made it for what I paid for it.

Oh my, the best dragon mommie ever!

Just received this email from Ceylon’s and Nexus’ new Mommie….there is mischief afoot.

“Hi Sherry!

Ceylon arrived today! Yeay!!! She is knock dead GORGEOUS!!! The pictures of her really do not do her justice at all. She is 100 times more beautiful in person. For instance, the shell horns and the snake print, in picture just doesn’t show up as well. In person, everyone here gasped as how utterly beautiful she is. Also, your detail work really pops on her, your attention to detail is amazing. Everything about her is perfect. And yes, the brown eyes are perfect too, forgive me for asking to have them changed to another color, you were truly right in going with brown, they couldn’t have been any other color. For a dragon, she is perfect in every way – EXACTLY how a real dragon would have looked back in the prehistoric days along with the dinosaurs. She is perfect and amazing. I love her to death. Also, Nexus is ecstatic to have a BFF and they love playing with my crystals/quartz and have already knocked some pieces on the floor. They are such fun and silly girls. I really love them! Thank you so much!!! I already look forward to the next ones. Thank you!
Teresa”

“Hi Sherry,
We just wanted to let you know that Limerick has landed safely, and we thought you might like to see some photos with Jodie and some that she took herself! Limerick is even better than we expected; she is absolutely beautiful! Jodie is carrying her around on her shoulder everyday and she can’t wait to take her out on some adventures. Crystalina and Skye-Flame have become really good nest-mates with Limerick, and they enjoy watching Jodie browse the internet.
Thank you so much for making these wonderful dragons with all your love and care!
Kindest regards,
Chris and Jodie.
P.S. We’re happy for you to share this message and these photos on your site. :)”
