When I was a kid, the Dragon Highlord Kitiara Uth Matar from the DragonLance books was one of my favorite fantasy characters, so I appreciate the excitement and work that went into creating Tabitha Lyons' elaborate Kitiara costume, accompanied by the blue dragon Skie.

Lyons worked with Artyfakes Action-Props to bring Kitiara's armor and dragon companion to life. In a series of videos, Lyons takes us through the process, especially the grand Skie:

The final product is in the video up top, and Artyfakes will be releasing more photos of Lyons atop Skie in the coming days.
