Daily Deviation

Given 2009-07-03
Sun Dragon by *Qarrezel. Such an exacting work from the piercing, hand-painted taxidermy eyes to the cast Thomsons gazelle horns, to the most amazing taxidermy-set jaw. When you look at this in fullview, remember to keep in mind that the wearer's eyes see out through the tear ducts of the mask and when the wearer speaks, the motion of their chin synchronously moves the jaw's hinge.

Fantastic! That's Belora's outfit she wears (almost) every time I see her! :)
Never thought to find it on deviantart while surfing around!
Great great work! I especially like how smoothly her jaw always moves along :)

That looks positively INCREDIBLE. Very realistic and majestic-looking

I have always wanted to do something like this (A realistic fursuit, I mean) and I was wondering if there were any tips you could give me? I realize that a lot of it is taxidermied and that stuff is hard to come by, but still :-)

This costume is so lovely!

I've actually seen it in real life, at the Elf Fantasy Fair in Utrecht, the Netherlands. A girl wore it there 2 years in a row ( I know because I was envious of this incredible costume each time :D)

It's wonderful how your designs look so realistic and natural, rather than the creepy 'micky-mouse'-like furry suits in neon colours and big anime eyes. Great work.

Wow! It looks pretty realistic, and I like how it was photographed too. I like how you chose to model the dragon's face and jaw on something feline/canine ish which is something I also find subtely illustrated yet overlooked in traditional Chinese dragon depictions. At least that's how I interpret it.

Yup, cast replica gezelle horns. I'd be happy to give you a quote on something along these lines (of course I can't make a copy of this mask). Just send me an email: qarrezel@gmail.com
