Wolverine Costume

Wolverine CostumeContinuing on with the fancy dress films theme, another film to hit the big screens with a fancy dress link is a new X-Men film entitled X-Men Origins: Wolverine. Of all the X-Men Characters, the only fancy dress costumes that I could find were for Wolverine and the female Storm Costumes.

The official Wolverine Super Hero Costume comes with the one piece yellow and blue jumpsuit with the muscle padded body showing off ripped abs, chest, biceps and deltoid muscles. The Wolverine claws are made from PVC, held in place with elastic straps and the foam face mask is held on via a Velcro strap at the rear. For the legs the Wolverine costume comes with foam boot tops with a printed boot effect that finishes at the base of the trouser leg so ideally you will need a pair of black shoes to compliment the costume.

About Wolverine
The story of Wolverine in the comic series is quite interesting, even if you are not an avid comic book reader and it is easy to see how they are going to make a film about him. Wolverine is a mutant, with enhanced animal like senses and abilities that include retracting claws made from bone on his hands and a healing ability that allows him to recovery very quickly from any wounds. This ability also alws Wolverine to have a much longer lifespan than the average human. Before he was a mutant, Wolverine was born James Howlett and is commonly known as Logan.

X-Men Origins: Wolverine
The new X-Men Origins: Wolverine film that is due for release on 1st May was mostly filmed in New Zealand and Australia and once again stars Hugh Jackman as Wolverine. The film follows Wolverine when he was part of Team X, about 20 years before the formation of the X-Men and before his skeleton was stuck together with an unbreakable metal called adamantium.
