Wild Wolf Costume by Zhon Wild Wolf Costume by Zhon
You guys asked for it! Now I'm giving it to ya!

More Detailed shots of the Wolf costume made for San's brother (Princess Mononoke) at the NDK 2008 Convention in Denver, Colorado.

Full real costume, that when crouched or laying down, looks absolutely believable that you are right next to a lounging wolf!

Please, no flaming. Only IDIOTS comment on something they hate.

And, NO. I did not kill this beautiful animal.

This wolf was legally taken and banded in the state of Alaska. Original wolf skull shows signs of old age. Teeth were worn down and calcium deficiency/periondontal disease on the bone.
There are also no holes in the pelt, meaning this wolf never saw a bullet.
Teeth inside this head are cast replicas of a perfect animal, not the originals.

Don't Get Me Wrong, I Love Wolves! Just taking something that's otherwise useless and making it into something more beautiful/amazing than just leaving it to rot with the maggots.
Preserve what you can and do not waste!

Download for full-sized Details! :D

(For those interested in ownership, of a wolf like this one, Price ranges from $1,200-2,500 depending on the quality of the materials used, pelt price, jaw pose and airbrushing time.)

I just love these wolf costumes. They remain so life-like. You must put some love and spirit into them. Really beautiful work.

Someday... *rubs hands together*

Though I live in Montana.... I'll just have to make sure not to go near anyone's cows while wearing it. ;)

Thank you! I'm so glad you love them! :D
And yeah! It's always best to wear them in a place where people will know it's a costume piece! Never go into the woods alone.
