What you need: 1. A yellow basketball jersey. 2. Iron on computer transfer paper to make words. 3. Fur 4. Basketball socks and sneakers. 5. A basketball 5. Yellow headband 6. Skin colored leggings and shirt (optional). 7. Brown colored makeup for your face.

  • Step 1: Use the iron-on computer transfer paper to make words and letters to stick on your jersey top. The jersey should say “Beavers” and the number “42” on the front, and “Howard” and the number “42” on the back. The words and letters should be in big bold black letters. Cut them out and stick them on your jersey top.
  • Step 2: Next, you’ll work with the fur (you can get fake fur at halloween stores like Spirit Halloween). Glue the fake fur onto the skin-colored leggings and skin-colored shirt in places where your skin would be exposed after you put on the jersey and shorts (see teen wolf picture to get the idea).
  • Step 3: Put the makeup on your face and stick some pieces of fur around your chin and sideburns so that you look very furry up top.
  • Step 4: Get dressed! Put on your skin-colored fur base, top it off with your jersey, shorts, socks, shoes, and headband. Carry around a basketball for the full effect.
  • 2. WolfMan Halloween Costume
