You are really on the up lately, with your usual job and this. What a year for you!
it hasn't sucked. Even the sun shines on a dogs ass every once in a while. :laugh2:

You know that would be a pretty neat mask to make too. :hmm:

(that wobbly triangle fuks with my OCD. But that's how it is in the movie.)

I got part 6 finished too, and then my rivet gun broke, so I couldn't finish it and get the straps on it. Pretty annoying. Plus now I have to figure out how to get the messed up rivet out of the mask without messing up the mask.

….I wrote Tekton (the tool company) and told them their rivet gun was a POS.

Fuckin awesome stuff Mal!

When I was a kid I was obsessed with Jason's mask and all the little differences. Made all kinds of mockups in Photoshop for each movie. This stuff brings me back.

The Part 7 mask has always been the tits.

I love part 3's hock. The one in my avatar I made last Friday after work.

It's actually a "real" mask. Thick polished white ABS plastic with vinyl decals for triangles. I want to line the back with leather, and it has 'real' heavy duty sports-grade elastic straps and snap rivets. I'm pretty sure it could take a puck to the face. Though I wouldn't want to try it.

Normally I just prime and paint everything but I wanted to try making a "real" one like one you'd buy at a store, that just happens to look like Jason pt 3. Heavy plastic and all. I just need to pad and leather the inside still.

It's neat having a "real" one though. I've been having a lot of fun lately. I'm going to start molding them soon once I finish sculpting one and make a positive mold and a vacuform machine.

And I have a great Shatner sculpture I purchased that I'm molding to start making Myers with. It's been fun opening up a monster shop again after 9-10 years of not doing this stuff.

The reception has been good too, already sold a few things. I'm making all the hocks from all the films, and Myers 1, 2, 4, ..and Captain Kirk.

Got the rivets and strap done for the part 6...

I'm not sure if they're all garbage, but the Tekton rivet gun I bought is crap. I only had a few rivets but it failed on almost every one and I had to completely disassemble the gun and the barrel, pull out the spring and jaws and realign everything. Twice it was stock onto the mask and the jaws wouldn't release the rivet pin.

What crap.

...I need a better rivet gun. Tekton is crap. I'm trying to remember what I used before, (Arrow maybe?) I don't recall having all these problems.


Anyway the part 6 came out looking nice. I'm happy with it.

(the real one I was matching it too)

I want to make that mask too eventually. That's what was on the VHS cover of Friday the 13th part 5.

He never actually wore one like that. But still,..... irrational want!


...I should mount a red light inside it when I make it.

I'd like to recreate the cover of part 4, too.

I think there's 12 if you count Freddy VS Jason and the Remake.

There's 8 "Friday the 13th" movies, than 9 and 10 are "Jason" movies, then FvsJason, then Friday the 13th remake (2009). The remake is actually pretty darn good!

..Godzilla still has everyone beat with over 30 movies. :dude:

@James R I toned down the dark staining on the right side of the pt 7 mask, I think it looks better now. The mask looks more overall white, while still looking dirty. :thumb:

(and that's with a pretty bright light on it. You can see I faded out a lot of the dark spots.)

Over all I think it looks better this way. Still accurate but more like what you see in the movie instead of the way it is in real life, which is pretty filthy and fucked up looking. :laugh2: I guess film and lighting can really change how things look.

I know you said you were liking it, I'll run out back and try to get a pic in natural light. I'm in my dungeon/office/workshop at the moment. It's dark as shit in here. :laugh2:
