When it comes to choosing your wolverine costume, you have a choice that you’re going to ahve to make – which is are you going to be the “classic” wolverine character? Or are you going to want a costume like the Hugh Jackman X-Men version of Wolverine?
1. A wifebeater (which is to say a white, sleeveless athletic shirt)
2. Dark jeans – you’ll want to make sure your shirt is tucked in snugly showing off all your muscles.
3. Slicked back hair with sideburns.
4. Claws – you can find these at various costume shops, or you can make them yourself with a little bit of cardboard and spray paint. All you have to do is cut long narrow claw shapes from cardboard, paint them silver, then hold them between the knuckles of each fist. The effect is suprisingly good when you have all the claws held in your fist!
The other route that you can go with your Wolverine Costume is to take the classic comic book look / approach, which is that Wolverine’s traditional costume in the comic books is a yellow spandex full body costume with bright blue. He has an over-the-head mask with ears at the top…kind of a classic “superhero” type costume. A girl’s costume can be easily modified by making a bright yellow spandex top with a bright blue skirt and blue eye mask. Don’t forget the claws to complete the looK!
