Because it's a Fraidy Cat Dragon, silly!

But we might be able to use a real Jay Leslie!

Well, why not use a real Fraidy Cat Dragon? (Things that are easy are not worthwhile, and things that are worthwhile are not easy.)

The same reason you don't use real dynamite in your show, I should guess. Now, if this absurd hijack is over, can we get back to the subject at hand? I believe it was modifying props for themes other than rabbits.

Nope it ain't over yet. The harder the better.

The red board with the dragon is not the original plastic that came with it. I used a clip board...


Dang, that is exactly what I used to make mine years ago! I used a printer to print my graphics on the self-adhesive paper.

I printed my graphics for the metal panel on a thin, printable magnetic sheet so I could remove it and still use the rabbits. It made the door slightly tight, but it was very usable. I eventually went back to the rabbits but I always wanted to do one right. I have since purchased several more Fraidy Cat Rabbits but I have not tried to modify them yet. It's on my back burner. Maybe someday I will find some time and get started.

Good job Regan, way to go. But Starrpower gets upset when someone uses a graphic with self-adhesive paper.

Re-read my post, Mike-o. I drew my own. Sketched it, drew it, painted it.

Looks like a lot of creativity going on. Nothing wrong with hand painting or copy and paste of graphics to peel and stick paper. You use what works for you. I did both, paint does give a longer lasting better looking result, But peel and stick gives you the ability to change often and get quick results. I use cardboard as you can peel it off very easy. If you do a birthday party, you can get a picture from the parents and use that. kids will go crazy. using free software nearly every computer has, you can have a birthday hat on the kids head that changes color.

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


A few years ago someone made up a Card Dragon

I'd love to find one. but I'd hate to have to pay the asking price

I never cared for the card duck at all, but that is a beautiful piece of work. I never realized there were so many dragon-minded magicians!

The idea of changing the identity of a prop because there are too many of the same theme in a show, is brilliant! The Steampunk Card Duck is a work of art.

Very nice, Payne! That looks like something Thomas Clark would design. Your Card Dragon is beautiful too, but your Run Dragon Run is still my favorite! I love it!
