Alright, big idea, little cosplayer! ^_^;

My love for Spirited Away (as well as Studio Gibli in general) has made me decide to cosplay something from the movie. I was thinking that it would be really neat to make Haku as a dragon, in the form of one of those Chinese dragons used at festivals; with a line of people inside to to move it around. In any case, I need all the help/tips I can get! ^^;

Most of my confusion is towards the head...I can't seem to find any good resources on how the dragons are made in the first place. Also...how many people should it be made to fit?

here is what you do. In a production of shakespear the tempest we created a mythical animal thingy spirit using a spandexbag. You build the whole dragon body minue feet and use the hand areas on the dragon as real hand areas. Just make sure they are removeable. Next use this spandex in the area where your feet would be. Your feet stretch throught it and allow you to walk without adding the unsighlty area for the legs. So just add a spandex section for your feet and you'll be great.
