The fact that Smaug is a dragon doesn’t mean humans can’t dress like him, and Redditor kialna has been working hard on a costume. She’s nearing the end of the build, but she’s been working on the project since December. She’s tackled every part of the process from sculpting and casting the head to making scales and functioning claw-hands. It’s already epic, so I can’t even imagine what human Smaug will look like when the costume is done. She anticipates completing the costume in June.
See the rest of the costume so far after the break.
