PDX Disco Dragons
Porngy (Pink + Orange) was the original dragon, created in 2014. This is the heaviest dragon by far. It’s made from styrofoam, foam, paper mache, marabou, mirrors, disco balls, tape and lots of twinkle LEDs.
Porngy has been retired.
White Luck was born in 2015. This one is narrower and lighter than Porngy. It’s made from styrofoam, foam, wire, paper mache, marabou, mirrors, disco balls, paint & 3 kinds of LED lights.
Sam the Silver
Silver Sam came along in 2016, to be friends with White Luck and Porngy. Sam is made from recycled insulation, paper mache, foam, wire, paint, emergency blankets, mylar, reflective zippers, mirrors & 2 kinds of LED lights.
gilda the green
Gilda is the latest dragon, created in 2017. She is the lightest, made from wire, foam, gaff tape, paper mache, cinefoil, paint and LED light strips.
Here’s a video of Gilda the Green Dragon, just hanging out in PDX.
The PDX Disco Dragons have been to all 7 of the Portland Winter Light Festivals,in the Portland Rose Festival Starlight Parade in 2017 & 2018 (where we won “The Portlandia Award” for our fun entry with lots of other super talented light fest artists). And in the Lantern Parade at the Procession of the Species in Olympia in 2018, where we accidentally started the parade, whoops and yay!
You can sometimes catch them around Portland, keep an eye out. They love to dance! Fun times!
