    I'm working on a Jason costume from FvJ for cosplay and Halloween.
    I just wanted to post pics and get some feed back from you guys!

    So far, I bought a very cheap blue tshirt, I'm using a grey sweatshirt I got for christmas (that I'll never wear), and a pair of black sweat pants. I'ts hard to find good pictures from the movie because they are so dark, so I'm using other people's pics as well. I also found a couple of good vids on youtube.
    What I have now is the tshirt and sweatshirt weathered and battered...I used an exacto knife because it left jagged edges instead of scissors which left a clean cut hole.
    I used fabric paint from walmart..nothing fancy..lol...dark brown, tan, black, and red.
    So, here is a pic of the shirt and sweatshirt.

    Hey man. I think the weathering looks good so far. Which version are you going for?

    I'm going for Freddy vs Jason...I really dig his look in that film. I'm just waiting on a blank hock to show up...and a different coat to weather/distress. Thank you CHAANK!

    Looks good so far, what undermask are you using? Because I have never seen a ear look like that on a Jason mask

    My feedback on my Jason costume has been meh at best, so your not alone on that front, great others are responding back. My costume is from the remake, down to every piece I made sure its just like the movie

    Thank you! It's not screen accurate but I did my best! lol...As far as undermask goes..I really don't know who made it. I bought it off of ebay because it was a really good deal. The ears do look a lil funny...but I'm ok with it. Hehe...
    I'd love to see yours though! I really dig the creativity and art that goes into making your own costume...I'm not so worried about screen accurate..but that's just me.
    Thank you so much for responding Horrorfanatic66!!!!

    Yea fair enough, it still looks awesome, just curios who made your undermask, look forward in how your VS costume finishes. You can see my costume, I have made a few threads on my 2009 costume, check it out

    Not too many Voorhees costumes on here anymore. Guessing once the next movie/tv show is made they will come to the forefront again.

    Just actually started working on my own. Its going to be a Vs/Remake hybrid. Just grabbed a Darkside Studios Remake hood and looking around for a decent hock that won't cost an arm and a leg.

    Sounds good, hopefully you keep up to date with your costume, the remake I love to death, by far my fave look. It reminds me of the VS just more practical and twice has less many layers, so many factors went into putting together the remake

    I did decide to make some "monster boots"...I found an old pair of work boots and glued 4 pairs of flip flops to the bottom. Without them, I stand 5'10...lol

    I couldn't find a prop machete that I liked, so I bought a real one. To make it safer, I duct taped it up and added some paint.

    I used some old shoes from Goodwill and flip flops on clearance from WalMart...I kinda hacked them up cutting them to fit the shoes so I added some duct tape to smooth it out some. Hopefully, no one will be looking at my feet..lol

    If anyone was interested...lol...I had problems finding good pics for reference when making this costume, so I used screen shots and pics of other peoples costumes as well. There was one I liked that looked amazing. His name is Rahl. His had this textured, blackened, burnt looking crusty stuff on the tshirt, sweatshirt, and jacket. I didn't know how he did it...so, the other night I just asked him. He was very nice and replied within hours. I'm in process of adding the nasty burnt crust to mine now...Thank you Rahl!
    There's a comic expo near me in the summer that me and the kids really like going to. Last fall I went in Jason cosplay. I'm thinking I may do that this summer...but worried it'll be hot with 3 shirts and a jacket..and gloves...lol. I do have 2 Batsuits..but the latex one is hot every part of the year..and there's always at least 5 Batmans there. I havent seen Jason there at all...Any suggestions? ....oh, I wonder how many DeadPools will there..lol
