Introduction: Werewolf Costume Halloween 2010

This is my Werewolf costume for 2010. My inspiration was "American Werewolf of London" meets "Underwold". The head and legs were sculpted and cast in latex using a kit from Monster Makers. The stilts were based off of the Gryphern design and slightly modified. The teeth and gums were sculpted and cast using dental acrylic. The body is a spandex body suit that I sewed the muscles into and painted latex on top of it. The forearms and eyes are the only items I actually purchased. Then everything was airbrushed and fur was added. I also installed some led booklights from the dollar store behind the eyes to make them light up.

But where are the instructions?! :-)

Dude, this is incredible. I especially love the suit. Can you give me an idea how you made the muscles in the suit. I'm trying to make an Illidan Stormrage costume and this would be perfect for the muscles. I have always loved the wolfman in the movies. The American Werewolf in London werewolf was amazing. You are very talented.

Well done and I would appreciate any advise you could give me on making the muscle suit.

Have a great one.

Thanks! Here's how I did it.

1.) First you would turn the spandex suit inside out and place it over the duct tape dummy.

2.) Using a maker, draw the outlines where all the muscles will be.

3.) Place some cheap fabric over the muscle outlines and hand stitch over the lines you just drew. Leave a space before you finish the outline and insert stuffing. I used the material used for stuffed animals.

4.) Finish sewing the outline and cut off access fabric around the lines.

I hope this helps.

When looking over your photos I was looking at the spandex outfit and it looks like you coated it with something. I have airbrushed on spandex before and you have to heat treat it for it to stay. This does not look like an airbrushed job. If you could elaborate on how you painted yours or colored your suite this wold help me in starting mine. I am looking for doing a brown suite or maybe a gray one like yours but I can not decide.

Dragonryder (author)creeves762011-06-10

Thanks a bunch. This helps a lot. I have watched the videos probably 100 times already. It really is an awesome suit. Hope my body suit turns out half as good as yours did.

By the way, where did you get the spandex suit?

Stay cool.

creeves76 (author)Dragonryder2011-06-13

No problem and thanks! After some searching I found that the cheapest place to get the suit was off of ebay. Just do a search for lycra spandex bodysuit.

Ever thought of selling it if so how much awesome

lkilgore (author)2011-06-07

DEWD!! that costume is bad a$$.

How much did it cost in materials and such. I would love to have one of these and use it for Halloween to roam the neighborhood scaring folks.

creeves76 (author)lkilgore2011-06-08

Thanks! Over time I think it cost me around $1000 in materials. I was basically starting from scratch, so I had to buy everything at once.

lkilgore (author)creeves762011-06-08

I would buy one. I think it would be fun to use it at halloween every year to terrorize kids. LOL

The Dragoncon and Comiccon places would be awesome to wear it at. People would flock to you to get a pic.

Sooo, wanna make me one? LOL

zbrazillian (author)2011-04-07

can you go on your knees in that costume, im thinking of using that for my job

creeves76 (author)zbrazillian2011-06-08

Not really. Its way too tall and it would bend the toes to a point where they would get ruined.

ForsakEnd (author)2011-02-22

How much dental acrylic did you use?

creeves76 (author)ForsakEnd2011-06-08

For the gums I used a whole 4oz bottle of the pink stuff and I used about 2oz of the white acrylic.

I just wanted you to know i have just credited you creeves76 in my instructable

hope that's ok, it was your idea, i just documented it.

creeves76 (author)n1cod3mus2011-01-28

Sure, no problem! Thanks for the credit.

creeves76 (author)2010-11-01

Well, I didn't start out with the intension of doing a "how to". I had no idea if I was actually going to pull it off, so I just took a few pics as I went along. Maybe next time I'll think ahead and have a better plan.
