A search for “werewolf” on Etsy returns an avalanche of nickel-plated trinkets and Twilight-inspired Regretsy fodder, but a little patience and digging can uncover things that will trigger your “impulse purchase” reflex (I did it to myself the last time I posted something like this – I couldn’t resist Pat O’Lupus, who looks great on my wall). Here are a few neat items that may interest you.
Werewolf Love cards by atpalicis
“4 x 6 inches / 10 x 15 cm. Printed on smooth white 300gsm paper using professional Xerox printer.” If you have a lady (or sensitive fellow) in your life who likes werewolves as much as you do, giving them this card will win you some points. If you think this is cute, consider this Red Riding Hood print by the same artist.
Pink She-Wolf by amigurumi
“Pretty in pink, preened and picture perfect — here sits the female of the werewolf species! This crocheted amigurumi doll sits at about 7″ tall and 7.5″ across. She wears a dark pink skirt and bow. Doll is embellished with felt features and embroidered details and stuffed with a polyfill stuffing.” This is basically my wife in doll format.
Teenage Werewolf by Haunted Cove
“Printed on heavy cotton rag archival paper, using professional grade UltraChrome inks. Each print is individually signed by the artist, Justin Parpan.” I have a hard time saying “no” to a rockabilly werewolf.

Werewolf Masquerade Mask by Masquefaire
“This Big Bad Wolf has teeth that cannot hurt you–they are soft. The fur is feathers. Suede leather ties for easy on, easy off and firm hold. Light weight paper mache and cooler on the skin than leather or plastic.” Gorgeous! If I was fancy enough to attend masquerades I’d buy this instead of including it here.
Poker Fright by Dave Perillo
“It’s a mad monster poker party… this oiginal illustration created by cartoonist Dave Perillo based off the classic ‘dogs playing poker’ paintings features a royal flush of monsters, including Dracula, the Mummy, Frankenstein’s monster, the Wolfman & the Creature from the Black Lagoon.” Terrible pun in the title aside, I’m a sucker for cartoon art that looks like it came from the 50’s.

Black and Tan Paper Mache Wolf Mask by sanssoucistudios
“Mask measures 12L x 13W x 8H. Cast in a combination of Celluclay and Paperclay. Painted in acrylics, fitted with adjustable velcro straps and padded inside for comfort. Haired with black Kanekalon hair.” Tribal without being cheesy. Apparently you can wear this, but I’d just mount it as an art object.
“Klonkin Jan” Plush Werewolf by AlyshellsCraftShack
“Klonkin Jan the cuddly plush toy! He measures 11 inches from head to toe. His body is made from super soft, caramel colored faux fur. His underlying structure is squishy upholstery foam. Klonkin comes with a hand sewn pair of swim trucks for those hot summer days at the beach, and a cozy scarf for when it gets a bit chilly!” Go read his backstory on the detail page. It involves radiation and brain soup.
