This Wolverine costume started as a hooded fleece outfit from Old Navy. We then took pieces of felt and cut them to the shapes from the original Wolverine from the X-Men Comic books.
For the hair pieces, shoulder pads, as well as the claws, we sewed the pieces together, and then stuffed them with poly-fil to make them stand up. The belt stopped at the zipper on one side, and then overlapped from the other side to cover it up. I originally got the yellow outfit at a garage sale, for about $1.00, and in total, the fleece pieces (I bought the small ones) were around maybe $3.00… so yes, total cost…$4.00.
My son was about 4 months old in the picture (last Halloween). The beauty of it was that since it was a fleece outfit he was totally warm while wearing it as well!
Oh, and his name is Logan, so wolverine is actually his namesake. :)

We also have a Logan. His daddy actually named him after Wolverine and he is stuck on getting him a Wolverine costume but we have looked everywhere and have had no luck. I wonder if there is a pattern for this costume that maybe I could pick up somewhere.
You are a life saver! And a genius! I have a one month old baby boy named Logan and since the new movie is out, everyone calls him “X” or “wolverine.” I found myself getting excited for his first Halloween and I wondered how I can come up with a wolverin costume. I am not very crafty but you sure made it sound and look easy. I will definitely give it a try. Thank you so much!
I can’t believe how many people named their son after Wolverine! lol My hubby’s a big comic bood nerd so we named our son Logan :)
We want him to be wolverine, but he’s 2 so I’ll have to think of how i can do this outfit for a 2 year old. Great idea tho! I love it!
My cousin and his wife had a baby in July and he was named after Wolverine as well. I was looking to see if there were any costumes for Wolverine, I thought that would be cute, just in general.
Can I buy this costume from you? I can’t find a yellow fleece one piece anywhere.
I too named my son Logan named after wolverine!! It’s a strong name and the costume is perfect!! Guess everyone thinks Logan is a pretty cool ass name
We have a 19 month old Logan too. I don’t think we named him after Wolverine but I’ve always wanted that name, I always picture me having a baby Logan…and it just happen that my husband loves that name too. Coll Costume tho.
I too have a baby boy named Logan, he’s now 9 months old, and I named him after Wolverine thinking it may deter future school bullies as who in their right mind would start a fight with one of the X Men?! Here in England Logan isn’t a common name and everyone loves it! I’ve been looking at ready made costumes but this one is so much better so I think I might attempt making it myself :)
i want to buy this from you
