    Hey all! I'm Jennie, I'm 22 living on the east coast and I'm finally finding time to fulfill my dream of being an actual werewolf.

    My intentions are to build a full body costume with a mixture of sculpture/cast latex, resin, NFT hair and other fabrics as well as foam fabrications. I'm making this thread to share my progress.


    Without further ado, the current Work in progress shots;

    Top photo : The sculpture

    Bottom photo: The painted cast with teeth and hair painted over the photo to help visualise the next step.

    There are easier ways of fulfilling your dream you know? All you needs a little wolfsbane, an autumn full moon...

    This looks very promising. A little like the Cabin in the Woods Werewolf. Looking forward to how this turns out.

    Your sculpture reminds me of American Werewolf in London. But the concept art/ mock up is completely different, and it's terrific!

    Ears, teeth, hair, color... Please, don't change a thing. :popcorn

    Haha thank you!

    And Yes, my original inspiration was the Cabin in the Woods Werewolf. The eyes were directly inspired by such, though the rest of it is kind of a fun but often frustrating "Figure out as you go" type deal. Haha, Lots of crafting firsts for me here.

    Rigged the neck/shoulder padding. I stretched the NFT fur over the armature to see how it would look. Nothing's sewn yet.

    Needs:

    -teeth
    -ears
    -hair line blending/punching

    This is looking very cool!

    Here's some pics of the Cabin in the Woods Werewolf. Might help with your hair laying. :)

    Thank you all! And Thanks, Donnie, for the photos! My concern is the latex is backed by a layer or two of burlap soaked/fused into it. Is it still possible to hairpunch such thick/burlap latex?

    I have no experience when it comes to hair punching. I've watched tutorial videos over at Stan Winston School of character arts, but these tend to be simply punching directly into slip latex without any backing at least the ones i've seen. Perhaps a more enlightened member will chime in.

    While the mask is STILL not finished. (needs lip, ears and blending hair punching!) I just HAD to take opportunity of the full/Blue moon this past weekend and get some cool shots!
