Wolf Princess was born of a brainstorming project with a friend in which we posed the question, "What if there was a rock band that was comprised completely of people who had been raised in the forest by wolves?" There would be lots of howling and inarticulate drumming on pieces of wood with animal bones. We were going to form an experimental band based on this idea, but found out there was already a band called Raised by Wolves. Instead of forming a band, I developed the character of Wolf Princess, the feral-girl "singer" of the imaginary band. I made a myspace profile for her too, answering quizzes from the point of view of someone who had been raised by wolves. She needed a profile picture, so I made a fur bikini top for her and photoshopped on a wolf face for a hat. This was the original costume (at left), constructed with fur from an old thrift-store-bought mink stole.
A few years later, the same friend had become part of a band. It was wolf themed and they asked Wolf Princess to sing with them. This is the second incarnation of the costume, made from remnant fox fur bought on ebay. After two performances, Wolf Princess decided that she would rather return to the forest than conform to the ways of society, so she quit the band and now lives in a hut near the forest's edge, communing with her old pack on moonlit runs through the woods.
