When you purchase the dragon you are given 10 folders. For this example, we will assume you have purchased the adult dragon. If you have purchased another size, please replace "adult" in the following examples with the appropriate size, "juvenile" or "ancient."
This guide is to help you with the customization phase in dealing with attachments.
The Base Avatar
The two folders you will most care about are:

These are the base avatars. You can right click on them and select "Replace Outfit" to become a dragon.
Note: If the contents of the folder are not loaded, the Second Life client will not realize that you can wear the contents of the folder and will not show the "Replace Outfit" option. If this occurs, simply right click again and the option will show up as soon as you have downloaded the contents.

Headdresses (Horns and Ears)
After this, I recommend finding a headdress that you like.

If you are wearing the adult dragon, the headdresses can be found in the folder
If you are wearing the biped dragon, the headdresses can be found in the folder
A common mistake is to try to put on a biped headdress when wearing the adult. This will attach them deep inside your neck, and it will appear that nothing has changed. Simply find the correct folder and try again, and the headdress will appear.
To try out the different headdresses, expand the Seawolf - Adult Dragon Headdresses folder and right click on each headdress object, then select wear. Go down the list doing this until you find the headdress you like.
Once you have found your desired headdress, right click and detach it (you cannot copy attached objects), then right click and copy it. Select the Seawolf - Adult Dragon folder and right click and paste.
Copying the headdress to the main avatar folder will ensure that it's automatically attached the next time you put on the avatar.

The variants folder contains two different dorsals (the spikes/fins/flaps that run along the spine) and two different heads.

It's best to pair the heads up with the proper jaw. Same with the dorsals: it's best to attach the neck, chest, and hips of the same dorsal type. It's not necessary, but they were designed with that in mind.
