Dragon Costumes: Night Fury
You can have some real fun with Dragon costumes this Halloween. There are a few different types of dragon in the movie, though the main one is known as Night Fury. Night Fury dragons are very rare but also very intelligent. They’re dark in color with striking yellow eyes, and have a very large wingspan compared to the size of their body, helping them to fly better than any other dragon. Thankfully, this popular dragon will be easy to recreate simply by using dark colors and creating dark wings.
Other Kinds of Dragon
The other kinds of dragon in the movie include Gronckles with tiny wings, Monstrous Nightmares who are very large and spiny, Deadly Nadders with blue crests, Terrible Terrors who are the size of dogs, Hideous Zipplebacks who have two heads, and the Red Death who is a huge dragon and the main enemy of the movie. All these choices will make How to Train Your Dragon costumes very popular this year!
