On a bus?! lmao! Looking epic!!! We'll be starting the body after Ayacon. It will probably be best for you to make the head and such made to measure to yourself, as you're the head. Being it fabric, we should just be able to make it all work out. And "Taol" can give you a hand with that bit back at uni. :3

Us lot (Catnip_Dreams etc) will finish the body hopefully by the end of Christmas, if not before :P Ought to be made of win and awesome XD

@CharmingTenshi - It'll be for Kitacon, so if you can go look out got the 5 man Gyarados. And hopefully The Kid too. Cause we will need a guide lol.

This is so weird, just the other day I was talking to my sister and we were discussing just how cool it would be if a group of people did a chinese dragon Gyarados! Spooky, huh?! XD Anyway, the progress looks great, I am really looking forward to seeing more of this project! :D

oh, dragon-dance-Gyarados is a great idea! Pictures of the 'beast in motion', when they come, are going to be interesting. Looking promising so far!
