Anyone give me a line on a good werewolf prosthetic that they have had good luck with and looks good. Need to be able to reuse it throughout the season.
Thanks!

Your post says mask, your question states prosthetic. If you want a mask I recommend Howl-o-ween by Zagone studios (they have a few good werewolf masks). Nightcrawler, and moonshined are very good also. see them here

another mask company that I love but are hard to get due to being in the UK is rubber gorilla
check them out here

They have really nice haunt masks and a great werewolf.

I really liked the looks of the masks by Frightdome's company but they would not allow me to try one on at the show so I have no idea if they are comfortable or if the vision is decent.
On the prosthetic side I recommend bump in the nights silicone werewolf prosthetic.

Another option you might not have considered is a custom paint and hair of a non werewolf mask like CFX's
I mean picture how awesome this would be with hair and a "wolfie" paintjob

If you want my opinion, get a mask ,it will last the season and can transform your actors face more than a prosthetic can.
Good luck

P.S. I love werewolves so this was one I already think alot about, Im doing a stilt werewolf for my show this year. I chose the Howl-o-ween mask (made the ears bigger (the Howling style)) , spring stilts with latex werewolf covers (I made) extended finger Gloves (I made) and A Scream cube from gore galore (awesome I highly recommend it). with the spring stilts it moves like a werewolf and with the cube it sounds like a werewolf, Im thrilled with him.

Nice idea Allen with the hair on the orlock mask, I think it could work. Just expenive probably. I wonder if someone could turn that BITN silicone werewolf into a full head mask
