Wolfsbane, real name Rahne Sinclair, is a member of Marvel’s X-Men. Her mutation allows her to transform into, depending on the story arc, a full wolf or a warewolf-like creature. Her main internal conflict comes from difficulty to maintain her humanity when in her more-savage creature form. Created by Chris Claremont and Bob McLeod, she was first featured in the graphic novel The New Mutants published in 1982. As a character she has been part of the younger mutant force, The New Mutants, the X-Factor team, Xavier’s Academy and the X-Factor Investigators.
Wolfsbane is an honestly fun X-Men character choice to cosplay. Creating your own Wolfsbane Costume will require an assortment of Wolfman props, teeth, and claws. Think werewolf but in the Marvel universe. When creating her base iconic black X-men bodysuit with the large yellow X across the body we have provided two separate DIY options for you. The first is to start with the black bodysuit and use yellow fabric paint to stencil and paint the yellow areas. The second is to use another yellow bodysuit (made of the same material as the black) and to use sewing chalk marker pencils to track the areas where you would need to cut and stitch the yellow X on the black bodysuit, using the black bodysuit as the base layer.
