DIY Dragon Kids Costume Fire Breathing Mouth

Inspired by the picture book Dragon Love Tacos, this fire breathing dragon mouth is perfect to go with a dragon costume for a kids costume or just for dragon fun cosplay. Thanks to Oriental Trading for partnering with us for this post.

As soon as we started seeing Halloween costumes in the store in August, my kids started talking about what they wanted to be. While my oldest really wants to be spider man, my 4 year old decided he wanted to be a dragon. (p.s. have you seen my little girls Trolls Costume yet??)

We stopped doing themed dressing up last year when my oldest was Poe Dameron in a homemade cardboard box X-Wing and my second wanted to be a Train Engineer in a Train Cardboard Box.

But this year, I figure he and our new baby boy can together be a theme from Dragons Love Tacos. Have you read it? it's one of our all time favorite books. So while he is a dragon, our baby boy is going to be a taco. I'm going to make his costume out of felt.

We found the perfect red dragon costume at Oriental Trading. They have all sorts of boy costumes. We thought it would be fun to take the costume one step further by making dragon fire, since dragons who eat spicy tacos breath fire :).

This is ridiculously easy and quick to make. Just be careful not to burn yourself with hot glue, like I did really bad.

Step 1: Cut Felt Triangles

Cut the yellow, orange, and red triangles so that they are long. Cut different widths.

Step 4: 

Finally cut a rectangle that can wrap around the toilet paper and glue to toilet paper roll. 
Such a fun thing for your little one to dress up and pretend to be a dragon.
