Exclamation Wendigo Costume

Hey! i've decided on making an original costume based off a dream i had a couple nights ago. The creature im basing my costume off of is a Wendigo, if you watch Supernatural you probably know what a wendigo is, if not its basically just an emaciated, cannibal monster. Im basing the costume off these images below.

I'm also basing the costume off this description "The Wendigo was gaunt to the point of emaciation, its desiccated skin pulled tautly over its bones. With its bones pushing out against its skin, its complexion the ash gray of death, and its eyes pushed back deep into their sockets, the Wendigo looked like a gaunt skeleton recently disinterred from the grave. What lips it had were tattered and bloody. Unclean and suffering from suppurations of the flesh, the Wendigo gave off a strange and eerie odor of decay and decomposition, of death and corruption."


Since wendigos are winter spirits/creatures, ill be getting arctic blue contacts. I know im going to have claws, pointed ears, and also use various facial prosthetics to get the whole dead and emaciated look, but im having trouble with how to make my body look really skinny. Im thinking of making a latex body suit and possibly adding some peach fuzz to it like in this picture. I love the hands and claws in this one!

If anyone has any tips that could help me i'd greatly appreciate it! Or if you guys have any cool ideas as to things i could add to the costume that'd be pretty cool

This is such a cool idea! I'd say to try and keep the dress Native American, since the Wendigo comes from Native American myth. I really like the pictures with the horns (because, let's face it, giant antlers are awesome).

As far as making yourself look really skinny, I'd trust the body suit. If you make it look like you're seeing bone, and that the skin looks stretched then you'll look skinny haha.
