I knew I wanted to be Teen Wolf but the How-To’s to make a Homemade Teen Wolf Halloween Costume on the net all seemed way too difficult and time consuming. I procrastinated making my costume until I found the perfect Letterman’s jacket for $20.00 at a thrift store. I knew it was meant to be!
I spent the night before Halloween in the long lineups for the Halloween store that NYC is known for. When I finally got in they were out of Werewolf masks, wigs and teeth! I had to settle for a Captain Jack wig that I cut the braids off (actually ended up looking more like Scott Howard from the movie than a real Werewolf wig!).
I bought hair you iron out and then glue to your face for the beard and face. I cut the fingers off some hairy gloves for my hands. I kept checking youtube for the scene when Michael J. Fox transforms into a wolf so I looked the most realistic using some brown and black wolf makeup and a couple of “how to wolf makeup” websites for the face. Bought some individual wolf teeth and molded them to my own.
Took about an hour to do – thanks to my roommates help with the makeup! Put on a pair of old Levis, Converse and my own RayBan’s and I was done! I got mistaken for Chewbacca a couple of times but the streets of NYC loved my costume! I was told to Vansurf all night and my costume is a legend!
