Christopher Reeves sent me this photo of the werewolf suit he put together for Halloween 2010. Let’s all just stare at it in silent jealousy for a moment, shall we?
My inspiration was “American Werewolf of London” meets “Underwold”. The head and legs were sculpted and cast in latex using a kit from Monster Makers. The stilts were based off of the Gryphern design and slightly modified. The teeth and gums were sculpted and cast using dental acrylic. The body is a spandex body suit that I sewed the muscles into and painted latex on top of it. The forearms and eyes are the only items I actually purchased. Then everything was airbrushed and fur was added. I also installed some led booklights from the dollar store behind the eyes to make them light up.
There’s nothing about this suit that I don’t love. The fur, the colouring, the face, the claws. Nice flippin’ work, Christopher. You set the bar pretty high for next year!
