I love werewolves. They've been my favorite classic monster since I was a kid and the original Universal The Wolf Man still remains my favorite to this day. Can't beat the classic! I have always been more preferential to a wolf "man" as opposed to the more animalistic werewolf. I did a pretty basic 2010 version wolfman costume a few years back but have always wanted to do something more detailed and, well, better. This is the year I'm doing it. This thread will document my road to accomplishing this.

First and foremost, I costume for the pure fun of it. I'm not one for "accuracy" or any of the other obsessive aspects that the costuming hobby can bring. So, having said that, let's begin. :)


The feet:

I'm confused. The mask you "made" arrived today? Not sure I understand...but I'm looking forward to seeing it. Looks like its going to be a GREAT costume. By-the-way...I'm partial to the classic Universal Monster films too. :)

o, the mask I "had" made. It was a discontinued piece by Specter Studios. I contacted them to see if they still had any of the molds left and they did. It was an extra $15 charge for it being a special order, but it was so worth it.


This particular costume isn't going to be Chaney, but an updated rendition of the wolfman design. I've already done the Chaney wolfman. ;-)

Oh...was expecting a more humanoid look...

Something more like this?




Yeah, this is my classic. The one I'm currently working on is a more brutal version. The mask snout isn't as long as other "werewolf" masks out there. This was more of a mix of styles in my eyes.

Yeah, I'm actually surprised. I expected something that looked more "Wolf-Man" then "Wolf-Wolf." I do really do like your "classic" looking "Wolf-Man." Would love to do one of those myself. Is that on of the new masks?

Looking forward to seeing more of your new "brutal" one.

Those are actually just cheap costume gloves. Latex upper part with a nylon glove underneath.

Although I'm still very partial to the "classic" look. :)
