Everyone knows werewolves come out once a month, triggered by the rising of a full moon. So when the moon is right in the middle of a waxing and waning gibbous, it’s time to lock the windows and doors if you’re a Lupophobe because that moon’s hitting maximum fullness. The history of the terrifying sickness/curse that morphs a human into a wolf is well-tread territory in movies and books, and has folkloric origins dating back to the Middle Ages. Stock up on silver if you’re wondering how to defend yourself, or follow the old adage “can’t beat ’em, join ’em” and shapeshift into the supernatural beast on your own and you don’t even have to wait for the full moon.
As a costume idea, werewolf gets extra points for ease since you can wear regular clothes. We think the look is more convincing if you take some scissors to the clothes for that freshly transformed rugged appearance. Fangs, ears, beast hands and a wig can help you finish the look. And of course a little fake blood to show your, uhmm… love for meat!
Entertained but not convinced of your own makeup skills? Or maybe you’re just in a hurry. At WholesaleHalloweenCostumes.com we sell plenty of Werewolf Costumes to help with that beastly transformation.
