Dressing Up? A Sartorial Look At Halloween 2/4: The Wolfman #halloweencostume

DC Editor Adam writes…


Are you dressing-up for our Halloween Ghost walks? Today I'm looking at the famous monsters of movieland from a sartorial perspective. Earlier I wrote about Dracula's cape, and here I dissect the horrors of Wolfman's wardrobe…


The Wolf Man

Committing Double Denim: I don’t care if you ARE The Wolf Man, you can howl all you like, but it’s just a bad look.


In fact, maybe that’s WHY he’s howling so much. How would you feel if you had to wear a work shirt and denims combo in public. Unless you’re theatre director Sir Trevor Nunn, of course. Doesn’t seem to upset him too much. Or the Marlboro Man.


And at least Sir Trev’s beard is neater.  Which brings us to the hair…




Talk about spine chilling. What size of hat would go over such a barnet? 14 and 15/16ths?




The Wolfman and the legend of the werewolf features in this episode of the London Walks Podcast…





If you are getting into The Wolfman look for Halloween, then you should definitely check out London's best theatrical makeup shop the old Charles Fox in Covent Garden - now Kryolan City London at 22 Tavistock Street. Find them here…
