Real Snow Dragon by DragonsAndBeasties Real Snow Dragon by DragonsAndBeasties
My sister and I built a snow dragon in my parent's backyard over Christmas vacation. You are never too old to play in the snow :XD:

I would have liked his horns to be longer, but my time was short, so I made due with half size horns. We wanted to put icicles all down his back, but wouldn't you know it, all the houses in the area were ridiculously well insulated so there were practically none! We found just a few and used them for his little ear spike thingies.

My dad had the brilliant idea to use food coloring in a spraybottle for the blue accent. It wasn't the most accurate of application processes (the sprayer kept freezing up lol) but it worked. Kinda gave him a speckle-y look :)

Snow sculpting is fun! If I'd had more time, I could have made him truly magnificent. I guess there is always next year! :D
