My 6 year old decided she wanted to be a Chinese Lung for Halloween this year shen she got the Dragonology book for her Birthday last November. I was pleased to be able to pull it off. I've always felt I had artistic ability beyond my hairstyling and cooking crafts, I was in need of inspiration. Mei started off as a cereal box. She consists of cardboard, paper mache, craft foam, acrylic paint and glitter.
