Dressing up as a dragon is great fun, you get to flap your wings, swish your tail and pretend to breath fire. A plush dragon costume is nice and warm for going trick or treating at Halloween too.
A dragon costume is perfect for kids who like knights and castles. Or maybe the brother or sister of a Mike the Knight fan - Sparkie and Squirt are friendly dragons, not the scary kind.
There are lots of famous dragons in stories and TV shows. There's Smaug from the Hobbit, Puff the Magic Dragon, Mushu from Mulan, the elemental dragons from Ninjago, Bakugan Dragonoids, Toothless and Gronckle from How to Train your Dragon, Dragon from Jane and the Dragon. And 2012 is the Chinese year of the dragon. Lots of good reasons to choose a dragon costume!
Dragons can be lots of different colors too. Green dragon costumes are probably the most common, but don't forget red dragons and blue dragons.
