Wolverine is a superhero character in the Marvel world. Developed by Roy Thomas, Len Wein, John Romita Sr and Herb Trimpe in the mid-1970’s, Wolverine is mutant that has animal-like senses, accelerated healing abilities and inhuman physical strength. This along with his acceptance and willingness to use deadly force make him one of the most formidable characters marvel has incarnated. His character and demeanour quickly lead to him becoming a fan favourite which leads to his own solo comic in 1988.
The Wolverine costume that will be broken down will be from the x-men origins film. The centrepiece of this wolverine costume is the leather jacket and the claws. I have made a list of all the elements needed to complete this costume below.
White ribbed tank top
For the wolverine costume vest, I went with a white tank top. From looking at his costume, we can see it is ribbed so I went looking for that style and managed to find one on amazon that works well.
Wolverine costume brown jacket
This is the most expensive piece of the wolverine costume the replica brown leather jacket. If you want to a wolverine costume then you need this in my opinion. It’s a very nice leather jacket as well.
Classic blue jeans
The jeans, I went for some classic stonewash wrangler blue jeans. When I buy clothing for costumes I try and stay authentic to the original costume as possible but I also try and pick clothes that I would wear again for everyday use. These wrangler jeans look very good for the price as well.
For the belt, I went with a basic brown belt. If you have a brown belt for your own use that instead of buying new. Theirs no need. If you don’t then this belt is cheap and does the job well.
Wolverine native Indian chief head belt buckle
The Wolverine costume has and Indian chief head on the belt buckle. I managed to find and exact replica of this on eBay. Its a nice piece that adds to the overall wolverine costume authentic look.
Wolverine silver handheld claws
The second main piece of the wolverine costume are the claws. I went for some steel hand held claws because of how good they look. Very authentic looking when you hold them. I would not recommend these to kids as they can hurt people. I will include a non-violent option as well below.
For the boots, opted for some western boots. I choose these because of the heel lift and the square toe shape. These features are present in wolverines boots. Although they are long, the jeans will cover this.
