I have a few Rabbit themed effects in my show, too many I thought . But I did not want to give up using them, so I changed my fraidy cat to dragons. The kids love it. I started to ask them to help give him a name, this added more fun to the routine. I made it in both the mini shown here and the large stage version.

Thanks Regan,
The original was a Google search where I found something close I liked, then a guy I know who paints motorcycles for a living tweaked to exactly what I wanted. Then he hand painted the original large version. I used my copier and peel and stick paper to laminate the mini. Then sprayed with a clear sealer.

Wow...impressive! I modified one of my Scaredy Cat Rabbit props but I didn't want to make the change permanent. I have since acquired several and I hoping to put some of my ideas to use someday if I can. Figuring out how to get nice graphics has kept me from trying it.

Thanks! You certainly did a good job!

The red board with the dragon is not the original plastic that came with it. I used a clip board, traced the original and cut & sanded, no paint as the red background is also part that was printed on the peel and stick paper. I would use a real printer like a staples. their printers are much better than my walmart printer.

Wow! Nice work! But ... have you been poking around in my garage? LOL!

I built this prop back in 2005, when the Library theme was “Dragons, Dreams, and Daring Deeds”. I've been using it ever since.

I build mine from scratch. I drew and painted my dragon right onto the Masonite insert. My "other" image is a white dragon.

I talked about it in 2007 here:

Very nice. Years ago I built a Run-Dragon-Run for my Wizard School shows.

Really professional, Payne! Apparently we all had dragons on the brain! I wonder what other tricks have been adapted to dragon themes.

You guys with the ability to build and paint this stuff blow me away (and make me jealous).

Just find an image on the internet, and print it on adhesive paper.

What Dynamike said, then use editing software to make changes. Pretty easy.

Wow! You all did great on these.
I love the Run-Dragon-run.
I might make a Run-Walking Dead-Run. LOL

Re-read my post, Mike-o. I drew my own. Sketched it, drew it, painted it. I assume Payne did the same.

I agree it is easy. But Starpow-r does not know how to do it.

You are right. So why didn't you use a real rabbit?
