Three fashionably hairy werewolf film & TV prop limbs

I tried on an Apple Watch earlier today, but now I’m thinking there’s a way to accessorize my limbs that’s less ostentatious and more distinctive: werewolf hands, feet and leg props for sale at Prop Store. Here are three lycanthropic lots currently for sale.

Andres Markwart Wolfman

Local makeup school turns local writer into local wolfman

Fan Expo Vancouver hit my town two weekends ago, and as part of the event’s celebration of geek culture, monsters and creature effects, two New Image College makeup artists turned Vancity Buzz contributor Andres Markwart into a wolfman for your time-lapse video enjoyment.

Kotaku Bloodborne Werewolf Controller

Kotaku investigates Bloodborne’s “playable werewolf” rumour ahead of strategy guide release

I’ve seen a lot of chatter lately that indicates the werewolf connection in Bloodborne for PS4 is deeper than I wrote about last week, and in a gargantuan Kotaku post Patricia Hernandez catalogs the evidence. The conclusion: even though you’re killing werewolves in the game, you’re probably a werewolf yourself, too.

7 days left to brutalize your bridge game with illustrated werewolf playing cards

I’ve learned a lot in 10 minutes from this Kickstarter campaign. I didn’t know the world of playing cards has its own hyper-articulate vocabulary, or that it was possible to make playing cards look so bad-ass that Mr. Torgue would approve of them.

The Mountain Goats - Werewolf - John Keogh

Brucuta Beer

Hipster werewolves party on Brazilian Brucuta Beer label

This raucous beer label by São Paulo’s Elefante Project Design popped up on The Dieline last week. My Portuguese is rusty (actually non-existent) but my Brazilian friend has authorized me to pronounce this label muito legal.


Full Moon Features: Meridian
