I got some good questions today, and decided to share them.
- I LOVE Halloween!!! I am VERY interested in your black-and-purple Bat-wing Reiver dragons! Can you please show me the fabric? (2) And a photo of what the bat wings look like? (3) And may I please tentatively reserve one bat-wing dragon in black-and-purple, with either purple or green eyes, whichever you think best? (But NO nose ring and NO harness, I would want my black-and-purple bat-wing Halloween dragon to be “wild”, not at all tamed!)
(4) Also for Halloween, what is a Black Drat? And how big is it? And what does it cost?
(5) Again for Halloween, what is a Dragonkinz? And the size and cost?
I’ll ask about some others in a separate message.
Thank you! – M….. ; )
While the Halloween dragons are still in the planning stage, I have made larger dragons in the midnight purple I will be using – Lilith was the first– she also has bat wings, and of course the Halloween Reivers can have either a black or dark purple body. They will be very dark dragons, and I will add a black mane of either fur or ostrich boa- depending on which looks best. I’ll be cutting them out in July and will send you some pics as I work on them.
Midnight purple Fabric
Taboo – Tiger Drat
A Drat – half Dragon and half cat; the best way to describe one is a furry dragon with paws, cat ears and whiskers- (I have made a few of these, but a black one will be new)
A Drabbit- half dragon and half Rabbit, is about the same as a Drat but with rabbit ears and a tail puff. I haven’t made one of these yet. I’m thinking of them for next Easter.
DragonKinz are a style of “not dragon” creatures I’ve come up with, although they are still a work in progress. I’ll need to calculate the cost of making one before I can set a price.
Basically I want to start sculpting and casting resin parts for the faces, feet and hands, they will be Gryphons, of various sorts, eagles, owls, ravens, and other combinations of forest creatures. Sadly, to make DragonKinz work I either have to cut back on Dragons or give up sleeping…possibly alternate months between the two.
Lilith- made form a midnight purple fabric
These are bat wings
Saber- Tiger Drat
Diego – Ocelot cat Drat
The other question was mostly about the differences between a Reiver and a Pixie
Hi Sherry –
Can you please give me a bit of a dragon education?
I was looking at your website at the different types of dragons. I don’t see the Pixie type listed on the Dragons Descriptions page: dragontry.com/?page_id=36
It appears that all the Reivers have two wings, but all the Pixies have four wings – is that correct?
And all the Reivers have a nose ring and harness, but the Pixies do not – is that right?
What are other differences between Reivers and Pixies?
Are the Reivers and Pixies very similar in size of body?
And size of wingspan?
Do you have any photos showing a Reiver and a Pixie next to each other, for comparison?
And do you have any photos showing those one or both of those two types together with one of your larger Guardian dragons, so I can see how the larger Guardian compares in size?
Thanks for your help!
Take care, M….. ; )
Basically the Pixies are new, they were designed to replace the (retired)Nipper/baby dragons. They are a combinations of several prototype dragon designs- The double wings are a nod to dragonfly wings- I like them, but some preferred the single set so I always have a few of those made too. I can put in nose rings and a harness if desired, but usually don’t.
Reiver vs Pixie
The Reiver’s wing span is 19 – 21, The pixies wingspans are a bit smaller- 18-19 I’ll need to fix that typo- thanks for finding it.
The Pixies have “standing legs” and the Reivers are designed to lay on your shoulder and have “Resting legs”.
The Reiver has a ball and socket doll armature and that makes it easier to ride on your shoulder, the Pixies have a wire armature. Still bendable but not as secure.The reivers limbs are attached with a covered button joint, while the pixies limbs are attached with crystal beads.
The Reivers are bigger,with longer body and more detailed, than the pixies
Reivers and Pixies have different shaped wings, and ears
pixies wings have a single wire and are long and thin, most have double sets, single set wings are an option.
Reiver wings are more traditional dragon wings, most are fully wired.
Scorch- I used to add small hearts to all the Baby Dragon tails
I try to design new dragons every year and retire older patterns. I’ve been hatching dragons for over 20 years and probably have 60 or more different dragon patterns retired. I might bring some of them them back….Lol…
