Introduction: Werewolf Mask

About: Hi there, my name is Ashley and I love werewolves :p I'm currently in college working on getting a degree in Digital Design and it takes up most my time, but when I get some spare time you can usually find ...

This is a project that I started working on because i never liked any of the werewolf masks in costume stores. It started very simple, I used only foam board and masking tape for the frame, then became a little more involved as the project went on. I only spent about $20 on the materials, but I did already have some of the materials on hand, such as an old pair of gloves and t-shirt, and a beanie hat. I used foamboard for the teeth, and craft fur that was purchased at hobby lobby. The mouth moves with my own jaw when I talk and gives a really cool effect.

Please excuse my Easter shirt!!! I know it looks really odd with the scary werewolf mask lol. I will be working on a full body suit to go with this in time. I'll update with more pics soon!

Let me know what you think of it! Sadly I didn't know of this website at the time of making this, so I didn't document it. But, if enough people like the costume, I'll certainly try to find time to make an instructable for it! It was a blast to make!

    Could a person speak/sing clearly through this for a play?

    I would say so, I was singing in it! lol There is nothing obstructing the mouth so speech should remain clear and understandable. Instructable will be up soon

    I'm directing "Into The Woods" a stage musical that has fairy tales including Red Riding Hood. It would be perfect for the Big Bad Wolf, if I had instructions... :)

    Pretty cool. Have the full costume instructable ready for the Halloween contest this year. 1. Is this the adult sized version or just the teenage one? 2. Can this only be worn when a full moon is out? Kinda reminds me of the beast in that M. Night Shamalman movie with that isolated town with red banners- forgot the name.

    The head piece can fit a teen or an adult, though it would probably look a little awkward on a younger teen because of the size of it. I'm the one posing in the picture and i'm only 5 ft tall. This can be worn under any moon :) The movie you're thinking of is The Village, pretty cool movie. Thanks for the kind welcome :)
