Introduction: Werewolf Costume Jeans

Every werewolf needs at least one pair of torn up jeans with shaggy fur showing through! So if you are planning on being a werewolf this Halloween, (or maybe just being a werewolf, period!) this Instructible will show you how to dress to impress the rest of your pack :)


Also, if you'd like to see how I made the above pictured mask, go HERE

Step 1: Materials Needed

The required materials are simple for this project. All you need is a pair of old jeans (I purchased this pair from a thrift store for very cheap) some synthetic fur, needle and thread, and a pocket knife or scissors.




Step 2: Prep the Pants

This pair of jeans had glittery studs across the backs of the pockets when I first got it from the thrift store, but in my view, werewolves shouldn't be so sparkly! Luckily, these were easy to scrape off with a pocket knife.

After removing all that glitz and glitter, I got to work shredding a couple of werewolfish-looking holes in the knee areas of the pants. I used the pocket knife to do this as well, because scissors would have cut it too cleanly and I was going for something that appeared more like ragged claw marks.

When the holes were cut in, I then trimmed a piece of synthetic fur large enough to fit inside the hole.

Step 3: Fill With Fur

I slid the section of fur inside the hole and spread it out with my fingers so there were no gaps showing. I then lightly hand-stitched the fur into the denim, using small stitches. After the fur was entirely sewn in, I brushed the hairs out for a full realistic effect.

The pants are now ready to wear after both knees are sewn, and now all that's left to do is add a matching tail if desired!

Step 4: Add the Tail

For this werewolf's tail, I simply used a large, real fox tail in a closely matching dark brown color. The fox tail was attached to a clip so it could be easily removed if needed. Tails can also be made out of synthetic fur if you'd rather not use the real thing.

Step 5: Complete Your Costume!

These jeans sure complete the look of a werewolf when worn with the entire costume! And, they are also quite comfortable to wear, unlike many store bought Halloween costumes which are typically more generic in size. After all, making your own versions of anything is the best way to get a proper fit and an entirely unique appearance!

    I haven't had the time lately to make new Instructables, I'm sorry. However, you can follow any tutorial on glove making to make the paws, just use synthetic fur as your material. The claws were purchased from Etsy and installed in the finished gloves. Hope this helps at least a little :)
