Make your own Wolf Man Costume

Wolf Man, the unfortunate man cursed with morphing into a monstrous canine creature at every full moon. Also known as a werewolf, the Wolf Man lives a miserable life filled with secrecy and self–loathing. During the Victorian age in the late 1800s, the obsession and fear with beings from the dark side grew to near hysteric proportions as vampires, werewolves and serial killers were glamorized. It doesn’t matter if you are inherently hairy or have baby smooth skin; it is simple to make a Wolf Man costume at home that is bound to be a howling success at any event.

Items needed to make your Wolf Man Costume

Items Needed:
Old plaid flannel shirt
Old blue jeans
Elbow–length plastic gloves
Plastic scraps from recyclables
Brown fake fur
Chest hair kit
Beard kit
Face paints
Canine teeth


Step 1: Rummage around in your closet and choose a pair of old, faded blue jeans and a plaid flannel shirt that you are willing to cut up. Cut rips in both of these garments to look as if you were tearing and clawing at yourself during the hideous transformation process.

Step 2: Add a pair of furry gloves worn peeking out from the rolled up sleeves of flannel shirt. If you can’t find werewolf or Wolf Man gloves, slip on a pair of brown knit gloves that you have attached with tufts of brown faux fur and glue on plastic fingernail shapes you have cut from recycled plastic (like a plastic milk carton).

Step 3: For the look that you’re busting out in fury, unbutton your shirt about half–way and use a chest hair kit or even tufts of the brown faux fur for the look of an all–over hairy body.

Step 4: To transform the face, you can wear a full–head werewolf face mask, but these can be hot and unventilated. Another alternative is the smear brown face paint over your face and neck and then embellish with a beard kit or tufts of faux fur until you get the crazy canine style your Wolf Man costume requires.

Step 4: For a finishing touch, chomp down on a pair of werewolf canine teeth or even vampire fangs so that you will be ready to sink your teeth into the next unfortunate victim
