I love the look of the werewolf props from MS's. A whole theme around these would be incredible.
Could you purchase one of the costumes and build your own armature? If you go this route you could have an amazing costume or prop and I think you may save some $ and storage space .
Personally I prefer this guy to the unit70 props in your other post.
I looked this prop is 1300 and the costume is 1200 not that big of a difference except probably shipping on the catvamp would be much more then the costume. The prop would be freight shipping while the costume would be fed ex.
I would go with the costume/pvc frame idea. It's a great suggestion where you can have the best of both worlds and save on shipping too! As for the gender, maybe it transforms from one gender to the other as well? I'm not sure which way, but I'll leave the IQ referenced jokes to yourselves.
