Werewolf Clothing

The things you wind up researching as a writer are funny sometimes. Since I’m working on a series with werewolves, this is something I wondered about and really didn’t know. What the heck do you do when the guy has been running around in the woods as a wolf and shifts back to a human? Um…

I found a really good article at ilovewerewolves.com. Go figure, they seem to know about this subject over there. Apparently there are three basic ways to solve this dilemma:

– The shifter can carry clothes with him.

– The clothing can stay on and just tear somewhat when he shifts from a man to a werewolf.

– Or, you guessed it, he or she can just go au naturel. And let’s face it, a wolf is an animal and wouldn’t care about clothes, so that’s probably the most realistic of the three! But it might not be a good fit in a fiction novel, depending on where the wolf shifts. It could make for some really awkward situations, right?

My favorite is actually number 1. If you were a shifter, and you knew you’d be going back and forth between your human and wolf forms, you would be aware of standard protocol around humans and would figure out a way to have easy access to clothes when you needed them. This is what I’m going with in my book, and I think it can work well, especially when the wolves are part of a hierarchical society and have dealings with humans and other beings, such as Fae or witches, on a regular basis.

But it’s good to know there are options!

Why Should You Write?

Besides the happiness and personal satisfaction writing generates, you write to communicate something. You have something to say and your unique communication is unlike anyone else’s. In the final analysis, the success of the finished product (novel, textbook, article, etc.) is more or less proportional to the quality of your communication. How well did you create […]
