Dragoness Tail Modeled 2 by Red-Dragon-Lord Dragoness Tail Modeled 2 by Red-Dragon-Lord
Dragoness Tail Modeled for real this time. The clips seem to work well holding the spine in place on the corset. The tail has a nice movement when she walks. Hopefully I can get some pics with the whole costume. This was just a trial run. I am currently working on her wings. They are looking pretty good and go well with the rest of her ensemble. Hope you all enjoyed the evolution of her dragoness tail.

The pleasure is all mine, of course!:) Your project reminds me of the potential of leather every time I see it. It's been a great learning experience to see your pieces before they're shaped too. Thanks for taking the time to share with us and answer my questions!

Hee so cool having a tail addition! It looks AWESOME. Are these bits riveted together or just held together by the way they interlock so perfectly?

:iconred-dragon-lord:
Red-Dragon-Lord Featured By Owner Apr 26, 2011
Thank you. That is an excellent question. Her tail is a slight modification of my tail. I habe a rope running through mine and in addition to each vertebrae interlocking, they were also sewn to the nylon rope. I think that was over kill. I made the holes smaller where each piece interlocks. When, I wet molded each piece, I assemble them in place and let them dry so they fit perfectly. I took them back apart to dye them and then reassembled them. They are quit difficult to pull apart. I was going to rivet each one to each other but I fear that the tail movement won't be as fluid. Since it is pretty strong as is, I may leave it as is.

Awww, thank you. I'm working on the wings now but don't expect huge gradiose wings. She wanted cute, practical wings. I really appreciate you following me on this project. :)

I enjoy following your project! :)
I as well understand the idea of smaller wings, big wings might get on a way and make it a bit more uncomfortable to move and do stuff, so it's better to have cute and more practical wings.
And thank you for sharing this interesting project here!

Brilliant work, absolutely brilliant! I hadn't pictured it running down her back like that, but I really like that idea. The spines are perfectly in keeping with all of the jutting spines on the rest of the armor, so it's going to have a really nice unity to the whole ensemble. Boy am I looking forward to seeing the completed garb!

Maaaannn...thank you. You're always so kind and supportive with your comments. I appreciate it. I haven't seen how it looks with the scaled skirt yet myself. I wish I had more of it done when we did the castle photoshoot . I guess there will always be more photshoots.

You're most welcome. you're certainly right that there'll be more photoshoots, and if nothing else you can look back and watch the progress. Mostly I know how hard it is to keep the inspiration up for these kinds of projects and I know that every bit of encouragement can really help. And it's easy to do that because this one is so cool, too! Dunno if I'll be able to get to any faire or con you'll be at but I'm sure gonna try!

Thanks, man. Its my own design. Its almost identical to my tail but with a few alterations. I know its a completely useless piece of the armor, but I like it and it doesn't really get in the way except when you want to sit down.

Thank you very much. Glad you like it and you are so right. Her set is crying out for wings. I wanted to make big ones but she wants smaller ones. I've actually got them made but I'm working out some support issues with them. I have to say, the smaller ones look good with her size and she can manuever well with them.
