Toothless Cosplay is one of the most popular cosplays around these days, but it’s not just kids who are dressing up anymore. Adults have taken this hobby to new heights with some incredible handmade costumes that put Disney’s designs to shame.

We’re talking full bodysuits, realistic tails, and wings made with nothing more than foam and fabric – no wonder so many people are getting into the Toothless Cosplay game.

How to Make Toothless Cosplay

The internet is absolutely stuffed with tutorials and DIYs for anyone who’s interested in putting together a dragon costume, but what about a dragon without teeth?

In this article, we’ll be exploring the basics for making a cosplay of Toothless from How to Tame Your Dragon.

The Basics

The first thing to remember when making a Toothless cosplay is that Toothless is not a typical dragon. He’s got his quirks, and they matter when you’re putting your costume together.

Toothless doesn’t have teeth because he has a closed mouth, so the base of your costume will be a lumpy black head with no discernible features. If you’re the kind of Toothless who likes to be a bit more expressive, add in some dots for eyes and draw on a smile. Or go with the minimalist approach and add nothing at all – it’s up to you.

Wings

You’ll also need wings if you want your Toothless cosplay to fly everywhere with you. If you already own a pair of wings and they work for your body, you can skip ahead to the next section.

To make an inexpensive pair of wings, all you need is cardboard and some good tape. First, cut out two large teardrop shapes from the cardboard (one big one and one small one that fits into it like a puzzle piece).

Then tape the two shapes together and seal up the edges with more tape. Finally, attach them to a pair of sweatshirts or sweatpants (the thicker fabric helps your wings keep their shape).

To make sure you’ve got the right size, test out your cardboard wings by holding them up to your body- they’ll need to reach from your shoulder all the way down to your thighs.

Other Essentials

No matter how much you love cosplaying Toothless, you’ll need legs to walk around in, so it’s important that you choose a pair of pants or cargo shorts with lots of pockets. Once again, either sew on some felt scales or use paint and a permanent marker.

Finally, you can add on some claws or go with the Toothless school of nubby paws. Some cosplayers who want to go all out attach foam horns to their heads-but if you don’t have time for that, just stick a pair of fuzzy ears onto your hoodie’s earflaps instead.

If you’ve got all the items, you need for your Toothless cosplay, congratulations! You’re ready to take on the world.
