    So heres the deal.
    I’m on another reptile forum that is holding a trick or treat type contest so I figured I’d try a few things with Kain, my "mutt" locality rosy boa. I have dead roses hanging upside down in my room and everything and thought I’d use a few as well as use a Dragon puppet thing I have that you control with a wire that is attached to it’s tail. Amazingly, these turned out really well and I’m hoping to get some more with him before the contest ends and maybe some of our Limburg Albino as well!
    Enjoy!

    Nice :) Try adding a fake skull with the rose and taking those shots. I bet they would come out awesome and fit into the Halloween theme.

    If I had a fake skull I would, that was my original idea!

    The rose pics look great. What about buying like a plastic or styrofoam skull from a party store or Halloween store? Maybe they have something for cheap that you could use. And afterwards you could use it as decoration! :) You can never have too many Halloween decorations!

    We actually went to a Halloween store yesterday and they honestly didn't have anything to good for skulls otherwise I would have got one in a heart beat. They had some cool plastic roses that were white with fake blood spatter on them I wanted to get, they were $2 each. Hopefully we'll go to another store that will have more selection.

    You could always drape her over a tombstone, real or fake, whatever is accessible.

    First, it's a him!
    Second, I don't have any fake tombstones or real ones around here so that is out of the question also :-\
    It is a good idea though

    I just realized that the dragon in the picture is a Woodbaby!! :) You get extra props for having a Woodbaby....

    I actually have 3!

    They seem similar to the ones they have at the Ren Faires. I have 3 of those. Are they?

    I can take pictures of my 3 and show you if you want me to. I walked around all day last year with that dragon on my shoulder and I had the wire going down into my shirt and going through my belt loops to make it look like it was real. I tell you what, it's a bit uncomfortable in the heat though lol

    I have two of them that I picked up at the ren-fest in MN.

    The Dragon I used in those pics is my newest one even though I've had it probably over 6 years. My first one was a small cat that I got when they first started making them and then I have a BIG griffon.

    I have a baby griffon and a big cat with wings.

    Let me get some full shots of mine real quick and I'll post them!

    The Cat (it doesn't have a long wire like the big ones but it can still move)

    The Griffon:

    Then the dragon which you've all seen! (the wings bend)

    They're really cute. :)

    They do seem similar to my 3 only the wires and some of the body structure is different.

    I do agree that having the wires down your shirt all day gets uncomfortable lol. I took all 3 of the ones I have to the Ren Faire one year and had one on each shoulder and held one. Wasn't the brightest of ideas.:rolleyes:

    Yea that probably wasn't a good idea!
    Last year I bought a walking stick where the top of it is a incense burner and I got this two headed wooden dragon thing that goes at the top where the smoke from the incense comes out through the nose and mouth. I walked around with that and my dragon on my shoulder almost all day. It was hot that day to, probably 90s and walking around with that thing while wearing a black shirt (yea, my stupid mistake) gets EXTREMELY hot and uncomfortable lol
