A recent trip to a convention spurred this idea into creation, and thus, I must offer up my services to all who may be seeking companions!

Crafted from steel sheet metal, these flashy little dragons are segmented from the shoulders to the tail, allowing the body to curl up, and allowing the tail to move. They are designed to perch on your shoulder, with the tail hanging freely down your back.

The segmented design allows the dragon to curl over any shoulder, small or large, so you will have a comfortable, custom fit. A strip of leather is attached to the belly, to help soften the edges of the metal.

If wearing the dragon isn't quite your thing, it still makes for a great decoration! Since the front claws are curled to fit into the hollow of your shoulder, the dragon looks best if it's perched on the edge of a shelf or table.

Dragons come in a variety of designs. They're average size is about 20in in length, and 3-7in wide. They also come in a variety of colors, including plain steel, or heat coloring, as seen above. At the moment, eye color is limited to green, as that is the only slit-pupil eyes I have. I also have round-pupil eyes in gold and blue if you prefer that, or solid black.

Since each dragon is custom made, I can tailor the design however you like. The above images feature my own, personal Iron Phoenix Dragon, to give you an idea of how the dragon looks, but I can craft these into any shape you'd like. Horns, spines, fins, eastern-style, western-style, whatever you like.

The addition of wings and their size is dependent on whether or not you plan to wear it, or simply show it off as a decoration. I found that if you wear this on your shoulder, adding wings is incredibly impractical, as they just add more weight and there's not much room for them. If you really, really want wings, they'll have to be small.
If you want to use this just as decoration, then I can build much larger, more elaborate wings.

As always, if there's something special you want your dragon to feature, send me a note detailing the design when you place your order, and I'll be happy to make it for you!


Special Note:
While the dragon will rest on your shoulder of its own accord, it does tend to be a bit unstable and pokey to wear just by itself. You may want to invest in constructing some form of shoulder harness for the dragon to rest on.
And before you ask... no... I will not make one. I built one for myself, but I am not a leathercrafter, nor an armorcrafter, or clothescrafter. I wouldn't know how to properly measure sizes to ensure the shoulder harness fit, and it would cost a lot more to have me build one.

Also: These dragons are crafted out of steel. Which means they will rust. I will coat each dragon in a clear spray paint to help protect it, but this is not a guarantee. So it's advisable that you do not put them in water or leave them outside to the elements (unless you want it to go outside and rust, then that's cool).

Last One: Please be aware that the cost listed here encompass dragons of a complexity similar to what is above (this includes additions like feathers, or a few extra spines or fins. Those aren't a big deal).
If you order a dragon that is very complex, and has lots of extra details and decorations and colors and such, I will have to charge extra. If that occurs, I will set up a special listing with the additional costs. (so if you decide you want a dragon with huge wings, multiple horns, triple spinal ridges, 5 different colors, and intricate Nordish Runes drawn on its scales... you're gonna have to pay for it)
If for some reason you are uncertain whether your desired dragon is too complex or not, send me a note with your description/image, and I'll let you know.
