Retractable Wolverine claws


With Halloween only a month away you’ll want to start rounding up materials to build something like this now. Nate took the time to make this project look right. He enlarged a photo to make sure the scale was correct for the claws. The claws are mounted securely to a drawer slider Taxi Driver style. It looks like a lot of work went into the uniform as well. You’ll get the gist of it from the first few pictures the rest are just excessive glamor shots. I’ll admit that I put a lot of effort into my Halloween costumes once I got to college, but I usually fell down way to much to be wearing something like this.

    Yes! This is all i need, 6 blades and some beer, it could make a really bad night. But its really cool.

    Cosplay is neither big nor clever.

  5. Sarge says:

    those are nice. very nice. but the glamour shots were a bit too much. the sliding tracks were a great idea.

  6. myukew says:

    wow! way cool!

  7. amazon10x says:

    haha, that’s one way to get some more candy

  8. H8tred says:

    I want to kick that guy in the nuts for looking so damn happy. why can’t I feel that way?! Oh well, as soon as this hangover wears off, I’ll get drunk for all of us…

  9. Edward Zieba says:

    Very nice, but they need spring-loading and a quick-release in the palm. Squeeze it, and the claws flick out. You’d have to have some sort of pin for safety to prevent them being permenantly armed, and possibly a sliding or squeeze lock mechanism on the trigger (slide to the side then push, or squeeze a small bar against the body of the release and push). Then you’d have to add a steel plate to the back pf your hand to prrevent accidental injury from having it at the wrong angle.

    Ha, I thought the claws were pretty awesome. The costume was. . . well, the costume was. Glad to see it was OU’s Halloween, though.

  11. noouch says:

    Perfect for scaring little trick-or-treating kids so you can grab their candy.

  12. SomeCat says:

    Cool Idea, Where is the auto extender/retractor? Why can’t I find the pistol holder from “Ford Fairlane” (I know you guy’s remember)That’s what we need. Link’s anyone?

  13. furtim says:

    Nah, what we really need to complete this is some adamantium. ;)

  14. Haha, him and his glamour shots. Funny stuff!

    I agree that the next step is to add auto extension. Maybe it could be wired similarily to how prosthetic arms are? You know, with the claws and the wire stretching up to a shoulder strap? My aunt has one, but I haven’t seen it in about a billion years.

    … And I thought yellow tights were the only gay thing about Wolverine.

    Humm this from some one from ohio… Guess it seems about right to me.

    He dose look like he is having a good time though so maby the work was worth it. “IF” I was going to make a set they would have to be spring loaded and razer sharp for slicing watermelons… Yea thats it watermelons.

    Uhm. . .what exactly is that supposed to mean? :-P

    This almost makes me proud to live in Ohio. . .oh, wait. I take that back. Please kill me.

    But, yes. He needs 1) retractable claws (Maybe he can put the track under his skin in metal sheathing, so they actually come out of his knuckles!), and 2) To be injected with DNA from those labratory mice that have a full healing factor,,2087-1754008,00.html

  20. Joejoe says:

    Couple problems….

    1. You need gloves over those things.

    2. Wolverine NEVER smiles.

  28. Finch says:

    The claws are cool but DAMN! that chick in the middle on the second to last pic! You need to give me her hacking tutorial.

  29. stumpy says:

    yeah gloves would definitely help…they would make it so much cooler and wouldnt be that hard eitherO_O…

    auto extender and retractor might be rather hard though…

  30. paste says:

    maybe next time gayverine could incorperate his ass-less chaps into his costume.
