Blair Ondrla (@ChaosCostumes) has made waves in cosplay circles before with her Creature Feet — stilt-like shoes that upgrade humans to a beastly digitigrade (walking-on-toes) stance.
Blair’s latest project, seen at last month’s Monsterpalooza convention in Pasadena, CA, is a werewolf that blurs the line between cosplay and Hollywood.

It’s a kitchen sink of costuming skills. Most impressive is the mask — cast and painted silicone (gloves as well), with individually-punched hairs and a moving jaw mechanism to make the lips snarl (Instagram video). She’s foregone the usual plaid flannel werewolf trope and instead completed the outfit in a distinctive Egyptian-inspired motif, along with furred accents, an airbrushed leotard and faux-digitigrade feet.
Either that or she’s a real werewolf.
