CDragon side by Jedni CDragon side by Jedni
Dragon made from
3 CDs
1 DVD
1 Cable
A lot of hot glue

Head [link]
Front [link]

DD??!? O_o
I'm very happy right now! :D
Though I think you should go look at the Front picture, I find it better than the side view....

Here are some answers to common questions;
It took me about seven hours
It's 20cm high with a wingspan of 26cm.
It's made from copper wire and supports it's own weight.
I cut the CDs with a scissor. If you try this be careful, they might crack.
The whiskers are made from thin pieces of CD, they curl by themselves when cut

Thank you everybody who Fav and comment!
(And thank especially to you who made this a DD)

Don't forget to check out my other dragons (;

Hi how are you ??

I was so impressed by this work. I work in an amusement park and our new Halloween theme will deal about monsters and dragons. In fact I already tried to do exactly the same butI it needs to be 1m and I want to keep it flat because we will put some light on it in order to have a glow in the dark.

If you have some inspiration to create maybe some other monster like figures (spiders, scorpions?...) or ideas on how to do it, please get in touch....every piece of advice is welcome.

Hope hearing from you, and if not keep up the good work because it's awesome !!!

Grtz Wesley,

Most important thing is good material and good tools.

I thing the easiest thing for you to make is something like this;
