Hello.

Here is my "wolf"suit.
As the Wolf character is my favorite, I've started to make his suit. But I wanted to personalize it in order to give him a unique design.
All the parts are painted by hands with acrylic paints ( I still don't have an airbrush).

- feet and neck ring are from Dakkath.
- Bio is the cheap "bottle nose" bio you can find on Ebay. I have a Pete Mander's mask and bio but still need to paint them.
- Necklace was found on Ebay
- Skin was made from muscle shirt found on Ebay and lycra pants. I use the Mac Gyver tutorial for it.
- All armor parts were sculpted by me with yellow plastiline and the molds were made in plaster. I cast the parts with hot glue as I can't find good latex on my island.
Hot glue is cheap, strong, lighter than resin but heavier than latex.

As I said on an other topic, I took pictures during sculpting process with my cellular phone. But I can't find the cable to transfer them on my computer. So I will post them later.

You can see one of the "dragon heart" designed by Uratz. I scuplted it as I think he's scuplted his other concept. Uratz, I hope you don't mind about it ! I love all your concepts ! Also the chest part was inspired by yours.
I don't expect to sell some cast of it. So this is the only one I casted and it is on my suit. :)

The suit is not finished yet. I have to make gauntlets, to paint my hands and feet. I also need to make a cannon arm.
I expect to buy the new Ghoul Hunter shalf gauntlets from Uratz as soon as I could spare some money for them. :lol:
I will update this tread.
Thanks for looking. Comments are always welcome.

Wow!!! Amazing work. What do you mean by cast in hot glue. I'm not familiar with that technique. Like thesame kind of hot glue in a glue gun? forgive my question if it is common knowledge.

Great costume.

Hi, thank you all for your comments.

Yes it is the glue sticks you use in a glue gun. You have the glue sticks melt down in a old pan and put the liquid hot glue in your plaster mold. Be carefull, you have to oil your mold with a brush before doing that. :lol:

Hot glue is still a somewhat soft material. How do the parts hold up, do they keep their shape well?

I don't think I've ever seen hot glue props that big. Those turned out incredible.

That's some inspiring work. Thanks for sharing. :lol:

Yes hot glue is a soft but enought strong material (stronger than latex), so the parts keep their shape very well. I use standard glue sticks.
All depend of the thickness of the armor part. With about 1 cm of thickness you have good results.

Some minor updates.

I made the cannon arm and painted it.

I also painted my Pete Mander's bio and add silver lens on it. I fixed a Don Jarr trilasers on it too.

I don't find this bio really accurate but I bought the mask + bio for less than $170 on Ebay one year ago, so I think it was a good deal.
I hope I could buy later a wolf bio from Usurper. It is so far, the best wolf bio in my opinion.
