    Is it charcoal or navy? I've seen pictures that support both. It looks more charcoal in the first movie to me. But then I've seen fan costumes that were navy and they don't look quite right. Anyone know definitively?

    I believe it would be navy. I have a 16 inch fiqure that has him in navy coveralls and that's what I wear with it.

    LOL. This question and the ensuing answers ie debates will get you lynched at the Michaelmyers.net board. My personal opinion is whatever you think it looked like in the film go with it. There have been many films with mikey and he has worn both colors so either one works and is consdered accurate.

    I've always thought that the charcoal looked right to me. The navy never looked right, always looked off. The spruce green is almost a charcoal color so it is probably playing games with my eyes.

    I think I'll go with charcoal.

    I'm a spruce green supporter, myself. (for H1, anyway)

    I went for Navy and it doesn't look right, if I had another chance i'd go with Spruce for definite.

    Though it is a film still, this image makes a compelling argument for spruce green.

    A few years ago, I bought a used set (pair?) of navy coveralls at a thrift shop for $15.00. It's amazing to me that costume shops try to sell "official" ones of much lower-grade material for $40.00.

    Spruce green...no if, ands, or buts about it. Not only are there stills out there, but I've watched 3 different versions on 2 tvs, and if you've got good eyes and a properly calibrated tv, then there's no question. If you're going for a later film, then go with navy.

    A little off topic, but in my opinion... the only Halloween movies that count are the first and second movies. Mikey died in an explosion with Dr. Loomis. End of story. Everything else is pure nonsense. For me, anyway.

    I agree. However the rest are still entertaining. H20 was supposed to happen after Halloween 2 if you pay close attention to H20.

    Gotta admit, I haven't seen it in a while. Wasn't too bad. LL Cool J was pretty good, as usual. I like that dude. Anyone know if screen used Michael Meyers costumes are out there?

    Has anyone here bought the spruce green coveralls and weathered them? I'm just curious if they look good brand new of If I need to weather them to look more accurate.

    There are a considerable number of Myers fans who believe the H1 coveralls to have been Big Macs in olivewood, a color they no longer make. H2s are spruce, reportedly according to Dick Warlock, but I wasn't there when the conversation took place. :)

    Tyler has a post on his myspace page about the outfit for the new Halloween. He also has some pictures in costume.

    http://profile.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=user.viewprofile&friendID=97892749

    Here is part of the blog on the costume:

    "What is Michael Myers wearing in the film? Some fans are going to don the outfit for opening day, which I think is cool. So here goes. First of all, throw away the blue coveralls and put the shiny masks down. The new Michael didn't just pull his outfit off the shelf. Mr. Myers had to work for his duds, and so are you if you want to be authentic…SORRY! If you want to become Michael Myers you're going to have to take your * to a Carhartt dealer and walk yourself over to the rows of light brown suits and find yourself a pair that fits properly. That's easy, right? In my case, I walked into the fitting room to discover several pairs of CARHARTT brown coveralls staring at me. After trying on several different options that made me look like the Pillsbury dough boy, I was also sweating my * off. I suggested the lining could be cut out of them seeing as we weren't filming in North Dakota. To get the length right I needed a rather large size (as you know I'm a little taller than the average killer, some of you even *****ed about it!) and with the lining was removed Michael Myers looked like he had gastric bypass and his suit hung rather oddly. This is where I take my hat off to the wardrobe department! After plunging several pins deep into the costume and only sticking me-- come to think of it they didn't! I was the lean trim Michael Myers you see in the promos. But wait, you're saying! How did it go from light brown to what it looks like on film, cool and gnarly? That's where the aging process comes in. The production paid a professional that has done this for several different productions, I'm sorry I can't remember his name. The only time I had the pleasure of meeting him he had aging tools and was putting the finishing touches on the costume while I was in it. When you have cheese graters run over your outfit close to certain parts of your body you tend to forget people's names. So…you're going to have to figure that out for yourselves.

    Next came a brown, yes brown (light brown to be exact) pair of Carolina work boots, steel-toed. They went through the same aging process as the Carhartt's did. I suggest you use a lot of oil, grease and dirt to achieve the right color of grunge.

    Now through away your shiny masks—Actually, don't! Just cover it with dirt, blood and then let it rot for a few years. Okay no time for that, so do what you can…it will be acceptable.

    Now for the good stuff, the blood and dirt on the hands of the killer! Wayne Toth and Doug Noe did a fantastic job making me…I mean Michael Myers look like the killing machine he is. To have one of them do your hands and such would probably cost too much, so, here goes. Wayne would put some kind of glue on the back of my knuckles (that he promised would come off easily) followed by tinted corn flakes…you read it right, movie magic, people. Then came quite a bit of fake blood and dirt (Wayne's concoctions, Squirty DirtTM and Squirty BloodTM) and the killer was ready for the set!

    Wayne may sell the Squirty Dirt and Squirty Blood you can contact him on his My space at the Halloween Town in my top ten.
    Good luck with your Michael Myers costumes! I just want to say, often imitated but never duplicated. In other words, play nice because I didn't! "
