Werewolf Costume 2010





Introduction: Werewolf Costume 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.

    An excellent costume without a doubt! Would you be interested in selling a raw latex pull of the head? I would like to paint and hair it myself and add it to my collection.

    WOW! Holy Movie Quality!! I can almost hear that distinctive "American Werewolf in London" Howl now... INCREDIBLE!!

    I would like to speak with you about creating a werewolf for a horror film. We need the exact concept you created moving mouth realistic teeth spandex suit etc.. Please call me sometime soon

    absolutely AMAZING! I'm actually going to construct a werewolf constume too soon, mine wont have stilts though because it will be used on a Haunted Hayride at Canfield Scaregrounds in Ohio. how well can you see out of the mask?

    Thanks! Actually, I could see suprisingly well throught the mouth. Yeah, my dream job would be creating costumes like this for the haunt industry, but I'm just not there yet.

    nice one! speechless and cool design!

    I think this may be one of the best werewolf designs I've ever seen. Everything is is in near perfect proportion. Wonderful sculpting as well. One day I will make a female werewolf based on this practical design. The bodysuit is awesome! *_*

    This is amazing. Thank you for sharing. You are very talented.

    Best werewolf I've ever seen, and possibly the best costume ever. Awesome job man.

    Very well done...I am in the process of creating a costume that is animatronic and has a person within it. I like the idea you created with the body suit. I have a question for you though, After you sewed the outlines of the muscles up, and stuffed it with cotton, did you then put the shirt back on the manaquin right side up and apply the latex? Or was the layer of latex added on the inside out side of the suit...

    Also, What were the original shapes of the muscles made of? Thank you for your help. Your idea just saved me a lot of time and work. I was originally going to make this suit out of rubber or latex...

    Thanks! Yeah, after I added the stuffing I placed the suit back on the mannequin (right side out) and added the latex. You don't want the latex on the inside. I used a muscle magazine for reference and just drew the outlines of the muscles on the spandex suit before sewing. When you add the latex you want to use foam brushes and stipple it on so that you don't see any brush lines. This will make it look more realistic.

    I know i keep asking loads of questions, sorry to be annoying, I've been trying to get hold of a mannequin for ages but cant, so now I'm wondering how you made a duct tape dummy of your self?

    sorry i know all these questions are annoying, I'm working on a predator costume at the moment and i hope to use the same technique for the body as you have, then make Armour to go over the top, I've already got the head sorted as you may have seen from my instructable on 2 part molds.

    No worries. Glad to help. Basically you put on an old long sleeve shirt and sweat pants, strike a standing pose and get some friends to apply duct tape all over you. I suggest doing the top and bottom at different times. Do about 3 layers using different colors to keep track. Then, very carefully have someone cut along the sides to get you out of it. Then just apply tape over the seams, attach the top and bottom together and fill with newspaper. Since you're doing a predator costume, here is a link that helped me out a lot!

    Hi, i was wondering how you sewed the muscles on? what did you use? did you sew them on the inside or on top?

    First, I made a duct tape dummy of myself. Then I put the spandex body suit (inside out) over it. I then pinned a seperate piece of fabric onto the suit. The fabric was rougly cut into large shapes where groups of muscles would be. Such as chest/abs, shoulder/biceps, back, thighs and so on. Then I drew the outlines of the muscles on to the fabric with a marker. Next I hand stitched over the lines, leaving a small space at the end so I could fill it with stuffing. After that I closed up the stitch and moved on to the next set of muscles. Once done, I removed the pins and took the suit off. Turn it right side out and you're done!

    Cool, thanks for that, that helps a lot

    oh, and i would then assume you turned in it back the right way and then painted it with the latex, right?
