Langren the Werewolf by bcbreakaway Langren the Werewolf by bcbreakaway
Here's my take on a werewolf. I made the suit other than the feet ( and the head is a silicone mask from Immortal Masks. However, I did all the handpunching of the hair.

Very cool suit design.

Thank you! I sort of based it in part on the werewolves from BBC's "Being Human". Of course, the head isn't like those and I'm plantigrade.

Amazing suit which would actually look great in a movie, what material is the bodysuit made out of?

Hi. Thanks for your comments and favouriting! The body base is actually a coated lycra body suit. I added some of my own paint and did the furring to give that "sparse werewolf" look. It'd be cool to put Langren in a movie! Maybe I'll have to shoot something some time!

lol I meant what did you coat your lycra in? I used a spandex/lycra suit and coated it in latex (I'm still in the middle of hair-punching). [link]

That's just it! The suit was already coated with a pvc finish that was actually too shiny. I washed the suit a bunch of times to tone it down and then also used some flexible spray paints to add highlights and shadow.

Looks like you've got your hands full with hand punching! I actually took a different approach with the NFT fur as it comes on a 4-way stretch material which I then stitched on top of the suit. Luckily, the backing material was essentially the same as the suit itself!

Really? Wow wish I knew where to get that kind of lycra, would've been a hell of a lot quicker (at least latex has a nice realistic skin feeling when cured on top of foam).

I figured you had done it differently coz' I can see where it's been stitched and that it's very wirey hair like an animal (still looks like a werewolf suit that can be used in a movie though). I unfortunately cannot afford NFT fur so I'm using normal real human hair that you can get from any hair-accessory shop.

There is one problem with the PVC coated lycra in that it's shiny. That's the reason I had to wash it a bunch of times (to wear down the shine). Otherwise, you can find pre-made suits in "metallic" lycra online from various places.

Yeah, NFT is expensive, but amazing as far as the final result. It sure sheds a lot, though!

Try Sandpaper next time, it works a treat when you accidentally spill a bit of liquid rubber on your clothes, so it should work on making PVC less shiny.

Human hair is just as good, crimping-tongs make it wirey like monkey-hair and it's easy to hair-punch with crown-needles. Besides werewolves are half human anyway so it doesn't spoil the realism like cheap polyester-fur does on halloween shop-costumes.

Sandpaper? Why didn't I think of that! (Silly me?)

Thanks for the tip and I will indeed try that next year!
