Dragon hat

My sil, one of my best customers, wants to start her Christmas shopping. She said she wanted a dragon hat for her niece so I came up with a simple design.

I used a shell stitch for the hat using the method of the simple shell cloche and then made the spikes. Then I crocheted a simple tube that increases every few rows for the tail.

I'm still trying to think of ways to make it look more dragon-y and less dinosaur-y. Wings were suggested, but I don't know how to create wings that won't flop and look ridiculous (anyone wearing a dinosaur hat would NOT want to look ridiculous, right?).
