How to Make a Remus Lupin Costume. As every Harry Potter fan knows, Remus Lupin is a werewolf, bitten by the loathsome Fenrir Greyback when he was a child. Remus is a gifted and extremely clever wizard. Although he is gentle, he has a mischievous streak that was obvious during his time at school. Remus is trustworthy, reliable, selfless, and an important member of the Order of the Phoenix.


Step 1

Find a light brown wig and spray in gray accents or do the same to already light brown hair. Make the hair slightly messy to add to the shabbiness of the costume.

Step 2

Obtain some black robes. These should be tattered and worn-out-looking because Remus Lupin is known for looking disheveled. Attach some patches and fray the sleeves and hem of the robes to give them that messy look. Wear a tattered white long-sleeved dress shirt and a shabby black tie. The pants should be black and ragged.


Step 3

Put some dark eye shadow under the eyes to give the illusion of tiredness. Remus Lupin also looks gaunt and wan. Add a few scratches to the hands and face because, as a werewolf, Remus would have many cuts. These can be added with makeup.


To make this costume even more fun, get someone to dress up as Nymphadora Tonks.
