Did y’all see How to Train Your Dragon? If you didn’t you should see it! I’m watching it for like the 20th time right now, and the first big flying scene with Hiccup and Toothless just happened, and it is so amazing. The cinematography and the music and also that whole “What it would be like if I could actually fly” thing? So good! If you didn’t want a pet dragon before, you’d totally want one after watching this scene:
I’ve decided to kick off my second iteration of 50 Days to Dragon*Con by talking about some dragons that I have known. The How to Train Your Dragon dragons are just a recent obsession, one that burrowed into my mind because a) the Toothless dragon is pretty cute and b) the dragons in this movie are basically like giant cats. And who doesn’t want a giant adorable fire-breathing cat that you can love (and maybe even fly on? I originally had “who doesn’t want a giant adorable fire-breathing cat that you can ride and love, but that came off a little wrong). The movie even features little tiny dragons–little tiny pet dragons guys! How amazing would that be?
Last Dragon*Con I stumbled upon a booth selling these little poseable dragons, and they had a black and red model with a face that looked like Toothless. So I totally bought it (duh).
Cute right? Of course now it just sits, coiled up around my nightstand lamp. Dragon*Con impulse buys, what can you do right?
