The Mask

Prior to the start of Halloween’s filming, filmmakers were out to find the best mask to use for the film.
There were 3 options:

-A Captain Kirk mask (left), derived from a lifecast of William Shatner, taken for the filming of “Star Trek”, sculpted, produced, and distributed by Don Post Studios.

Obviously, the eventual choice was the Captain Kirk mask.

Tommy Lee Wallace bought at least 3 masks (speculation) and took the following steps to create the mask that we all know, fear, and love.

-Tore off sideburn and eyebrow hair
-Enlarged the Eyeholes
-Spray painted the mask “Fish Belly White”, as he describes it

  • Misted the hair black with “Streak n’ Tips”.

Modern can of Black Streak n’ Tips


Wallace’s unconventional methods caused much of the paint to wear off throughout filming, causing the mask to naturally weather itself over the 30-day filming period. The hair also became lighter throughout filming due to the fact that only the top of the hair was misted, not all of it (the hair).

Many argue that Tommy Lee Wallace only created one of the 3 masks and that the 2 stunt masks were created by Don Post Studios and given to the filmmakers. This theory is plausible when considering the state that the 2 stunt masks kept during filming. One stunt mask, as seen below, kept all of its white paint even after filming, and the hair is black all the way through. If DPS did create this stunt mask, it would make much sense that the paint and hair work would be of higher quality.

Thread speculating the origin of all 3 masks:

Where are the Original Masks Today?

Out of the 3 masks used for filming, only two mask locations are definitively known. The hero, and stunt mask A.

The Hero Mask

I have heard several different stories about where the hero mask went after the filming of Halloween (1978). After someone can post here and clarify, I will edit the post. Here are the two stories that have been circulated:

  1. Debra Hill took the hero mask after filming and kept it in a shoebox under her bed until the filming of Halloween II (1981), which sped up the deterioration process.
  2. The hero mask was given to Nick Castle and displayed on his fireplace mantel until Debra asked for it back to film Halloween II, but never returned it.

For the longest time, members believed theory #1 above… Until Nick Castle made some claims that questioned it at a Q&A at Monster Mania Con 17 in Cherry Hill, New Jersey. Around the 1:35 mark in the video below, Castle states that he had the original mask for “a couple years” after the filing for Halloween wrapped. He also claims that he had the mask on display in his home until right before Halloween began production. Castle says that Debra Hill called him asking if he had the original mask in his possession because they could not make a duplicate one close enough to it and no one remembered who owned it. Nick Castle then allowed them to use it for Halloween II and claims that Debra Hill told him he would get it back when filming concluded. Contrary to Debra’s promise, Castle states that he never got the mask back.

Skip to the 1:35 mark in the following link to hear the above statements: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tjU5jqmPoJg

Some members speculate that both Debra and Nick are telling the truth. It is possible that Debra Hill took home the Hero mask, while Nick Castle took home one of the stunt masks. Perhaps the mask that Castle brought home and then gave to Hill was used in Halloween II as a stunt mask. If this were the case, it would make complete sense that Castle never got it back was because one of the Halloween II stunt masks was destroyed in the fire scene at the end of Halloween II.

Regardless of who took what, Dick warlock kept the Hero mask from Halloween (1978) after filming of Halloween II (1981) wrapped. For some time, Dick Warlock kept the mask on display next to his Hero Friday the 13th Hockey mask and Hood.

After some years, someone found out that Dick Warlock had the mask on display. The video and pictures below, taken in 1996, are some of the last documentations of the mask before it was sold to a private collector, who owns it today.

In 2003, private collector and haunted attraction owner, Mark Roberts of Tiffin, Ohio, purchased the mask from Dick Warlock for a reported sum of $13,000. He still owns the mask to this day and rumors recently circulated claiming that he plans on getting the mask restored, and keeps it in a temperature-controlled display case. Below is the last known picture of the Hero mask from Halloween (1978) and Halloween II (1981).

Stunt Mask A

The location of Stunt Mask “A” as shown above, is currently unknown. It is widely believed that one of the stunt masks was burnt in the end scene of Halloween II, but I am not sure if this is confirmed. Odds are that this is the stunt mask that WAS burnt if any, given that the other resides in a private collection.

Stunt Mask B
This stunt mask was used in Halloween II for the “messy blood tears” scene. The following photos shows the mask being worn by JLC after the filming of Halloween (1978), and the next is comparing that mask to the messy blood tears mask from Halloween II. It is residing in a private collection, currently.

The Knife

W.R. Case and sons cutco 102-12

The brand of the Halloween knife has been identified, and is a W.R. Case and sons Cut. Co Model 102-12’. Great alternatives would be a Lamson or Dexter. When it comes to purchasing these knives, they can be found in the classifieds section of this site, or on eBay. Lamsons tend to be a bit more expensive, as well as less common than Dexters.

Halloween II (1981)
Number of Masks used: 4 (at the least)
Types: 1 Hero, 2 Stunt Mask, 1, more than likely multiple, Ben Tramer Masks.
Boots Used: Vintage Black Iron Age Logger Boots
Coveralls Used: Spruce Green Sears “Work and Leisure” Coveralls, black tag.
Weapons Used: Early 80’s Victorinox Forschner Slicing Knife, B-D MULFIT Glass 30cc Syringe, Bard Parker 3L Scalpel blade (with generic #12 blade)
Actors Who Played Myers: Dick Warlock


The Mask

The hero mask used in Halloween II (1981) was actually the same exact hero mask from Halloween (1978)! To see its history prior and after the filming of H2, just check out the same section located in “Halloween (1978)”. There are multiple reasons why the mask appears different in the films. Those reasons include the following:

  1. Head Shape. In the first film, Nick Castle wore the mask. In the second, Dick Warlock wore the mask. If you google either one of them and check out their head shapes, they’re completely opposite. Castle’s head is long and thin, while Warlock’s head is short and wide. Because the mask was so small in the first place, it was easily distorted.
  2. Natural weathering/latex rot. During the filming of Halloween, the mask was handled so much that most of the paint wore off and it collected dirt and dust. After the filming of Halloween, the mask was not properly taken care of. This caused the mask to warp even more and begin rotting in some parts.

For years, many people thought that two different masks were used for the first and second Halloween film. After some Q&A’s with cast members, cast and crew testimony, and excellent observations made by some of our finest members, it was revealed that they did use the same mask. The weathering is the same in some spots, as well as the hairline, the ears, and the eye cuts.

Where are the Original Masks Today?

As for the HERO, that’s answered in the Halloween (1978) section, above…

The Stunt Mask(s)

The stunt mask used for the “Messy Blood Tears” scene was also the stunt mask used in the first Halloween film.

The location of the Halloween 2 Stunt mask is currently residing in a private collection.

The Ben Tramer Masks

While working for Don Post, Rob Tharp claims to have made 3 “Myers” versions and 2 “Ben Tramer” masks for the film. The location of the Ben Tramer masks is unknown to this day. It is believed that one of them was burnt in the ambulance crash scene.

The Boots

The boots used in Halloween II (1981) were Black Iron Age Logger Boots. Vintage pairs can be found online.

The Coveralls
The coveralls used in Halloween II (1981) were Spruce Green Sears “Work and Leisure” Coveralls. Contrary to popular belief, THEY ARE NOT ROEBUCKS. These coveralls are pretty had to find, but they do pop on eBay once in a blue moon.

Prior to the filming of Halloween II, Dick Warlock walked into a local Sears and purchase a pair of coveralls for filming. These coveralls were later identified my other members, with the help of Dick Warlock’s testimony, to be Spruce Green Sears brand “Work and Leisure” Coveralls. The specific year/make/model has a black tag.

The Weapons

There were multiple weapons used in Halloween 2, and one of them is unknown. They are as follows:

  1. Elrod House Knife- Unknown
  2. Schoolhouse Knife- 80’s Victorinox Forschner Slicing Knife
  3. Syringe- 30CC BD MULFIT Glass Syringe
  4. Scalpel- Bard-Parker Size 3L Handle, generic #12 blade

1. Elrod House Knife

About 3 years ago, member “Kaizu” posted a thread making an observation about the Elrod knife from Halloween II. His observation pointed out that the “elrod” knife seen in the house scene was different from the one we see in the Schoolhouse scene. The house scene knife is now owned by collector Mark Roberts of Tiffin, Ohio. Dick Warlock told member “Michaelantern” that the knife’s handle was completely black and had only 1 rivet holding it to the blade. The exact model/brand of the knife is unknown to this day.

Kaizu’s Thread: http://michael-myers.net/phpBB/viewtopic.php?t=102798

2. Schoolhouse Knife

In the same thread made by Kaizu (link below), the schoolhouse knife is matched to be a Victorinox Forschner slicing knife. This is done by the very similar blade stamps. The exact model of the knife is unknown to this day.

3. Syringe- 30CC BD MULFIT Glass Syringe

In the scene where Michael kills an on-call nurse with a syringe, he uses a 30CC BD MULFIT Glass Syringe. These can be found on eBay pretty often.

4. Scalpel- Bard-Parker Size 3L Handle, generic #12 blade

Michael’s primary weapon in the Halloween II hospital scenes, the scalpel, is a Bard-Parker Size 3L Handle, with a generic #12 blade. While 3L blades can be found quite commonly, actual vintage Bard-Parker editions are difficult to come by. #12 blades can be found anywhere for quite cheap, but there are two different versions. One is more rounded at the drop of the blade, while the other is a sharp drop and comes to a point.

Halloween III (1982)
Number of Masks used: 3 Primary, Many background
Types: Don Post Pumpkin Head, Don Post “Hagatha”, Don Post “Skull”
Actors Who Played Myers: No one :wink:

Halloween 3! The Halloween movie that everyone loves to hate. Because this film lacks Michael Myers, many people dislike it right off the bat. It was a box office failure, even. What most forget to take into consideration is that when comparing the story, atmosphere, and dark tone of this movie to the original Halloween, they are almost on par. I personally love Halloween III, as well as the masks in it. That is why I included it in this list :slight_smile: There are no weapons, no coveralls, no boots, but just 3 masks. These 3 masks were originally produced and sold by Don Post Studios and finding an original set is next to impossible.

The Mask

Twenty-Eight years after the release of Halloween IV, most are still confused and baffled by the varying masks that appear throughout Halloween IV, as well as their origin. There are several theories that attempt to explain how the Halloween IV mask came to life, and we will discuss those below.

One of the many threads speculating the mask’s origin: http://michael-myers.net/phpBB/viewtopic.php?t=114020

  1. The mask was a recast off a copy of a 1983 Don Post “The Mask”, an unlicensed, extremely rare item. As of 2016, under 5 are out there. the 1983/84 “The Mask” was a small run of Myers masks released by Don Post Studios. The mask was cast off of an original kirk, which explains it’s strong Kirk features. This story goes that prior to production, FX artists on the film purchased this mask and sculpted in kirk eyes, and made multiple copies.

2.The “school scene mask” was one of the surviving Tramers from Halloween II and was painted a flesh tone color for the filming of Halloween IV. According to the theory, the Halloween IV crew made adjustments to this particular mask and then made (bad) recasts for backup masks. The only thing contradicting this theory is that Dick Warlock stated both Tramers died in the fire scene of Halloween II. The writer for H4 stated that they had a mask from H1/2 and when he arrived on the first day of the shoot, they had a mask with white hair. In the following thread speculating the Halloween IV mask’s origins, Billy Kirkus made this claim:

Thread: http://michael-myers.net/phpBB/viewtopic.php?t=114020

It is said that one of those Tramer masks (seen when Tramer is walking away) was an unconverted Kirk mask, and that the other that we all see (when Tramer is running into the street) is a fully converted mask. There is a specific issue of Gorezone Magazine in which Ken Horn is interviewed on set in 1988. He states that they used a mask left over from Halloween II. When looking at all of the information, I believe that they had a mask from Halloween II (unconverted Tramer) for the first days of shooting (Used in the school scene). Horn recast it and made multiple copies, but due to time constraints, he rushed the job and caused the deformities that we see on the Halloween IV mask. After making these copies, he did it up like the Tramer mask that he recast. This theory explains the white hair and Kirk eyes, because he would have modeled it after the Tramer mask that wasn’t fully converted. This theory would also support some features such as flesh tone paint under the white paint and platinum white hair misted black, as shown on Paul’s hero mask.

3.There was an unconverted Captain Kirk (not Tramer) left over from Halloween II that the makers of Halloween 4 began filming with. After shooting some scenes (the school scenes), people noticed that the Myers mask didn’t have blonde hair and a flesh tone paint, so Horn recast the mask and finished them all as Myers (White face, black hair, etc.) This theory definitely is plausible, but theory 2 is the most generally accepted.

In 2012, the Michael-Myers.net blog made a two part thread detailing the different masks seen throughout Halloween 4, which explains most of the questions you might have.

Where are the Original Masks Today?

Of the 6 masks used in Halloween IV, 3 masks are known to exist outside of filming and only 2 remain. They are as follows:

  1. The one mask that is no longer around was owned by Jason, known on Youtube as Sinister Cinema Reviews. The mask was given to him by his brother Greg, who got it from Roy Moore, the prop master for Halloween IV. Jason was around 7 when he was given this mask, wearing it many days for long hours. Eventually the mask rotted away. Jason’s mask had duct-tape flaps extending from the inside, which is exactly what was on the hero. Does this mean that his mask that rotted away was the hero? Until a photo surfaces, we can’t be too sure…

    It is unknown to me what scenes this mask was used in, but it was definitely used for some promotional shots.

  1. Another remaining stunt mask that somehow ended up on set for Halloween VI is now owned by fellow member “Tony Moran Fan”, AKA Darren Hughes. He purchased this from the brother of Danny Strode actor Devin Gardner.

The Boots

The brand of boots used in Halloween IV were Red Wing ASTMF 2413-05 Black Leather Work Safety Steel Toe Boots.

The Coveralls

The Coveralls used in Halloween IV are Grey (HEAVILY WEATHERED) Fisher Stripe Big Macs. There has long been some controversy over whether or not the coveralls were blue or grey, but in the scene where Michael kills the mechanic, I see grey coveralls.

Weapons Used

There were multiple weapons used in Halloween IV. They are as follows:

  1. Stunt Knife- Modeled after a 10’ Chicago Cutlery (Model 44S) with no tang (speculation)
  2. Hero Knife- 10.25’ Friedr.Herder Abr.Sohn Solingen-Germany chef knife
  3. Mundial Heavy Duty Industrial-Forged Tailor’s Shears

    1. Stunt Knife- (closest available) 10’ Chicago Cutlery (Model 44S) with no tang

    Fun Fact: The stunt knife used for HalloweeN IV is the same stunt knife used for Friday the 13th Part 7. It is currently unknown what knife this was modeled after, but the closest by far is a 10’ Chicago Cutlery (Model 44S) with no tang.

3. Jamie’s Scissors- Mundial Heavy Duty Industrial-Forged Tailor’s Shears

At the end of Halloween IV, Jamie uses a pair of scissors to stab her mother. These scissors can be matched to Mundial Heavy Duty Industrial-Forged Tailor’s shears. There are two versions: 10’ and 12’. A 10’ pair is shown below, but they may have been 12’. I will check and update this post accordingly.

Halloween V (1989)
Number of Masks used: 3+
Types: 2 Heros, 1 Stunt, multiple unused production pulls
Boots Used: Unknown, but any generic black leather boots would work.
Coveralls Used: Blue (Heavily weathered) Herringbone Sears Work n Leisures
Weapons Used: Hero Knife: 10’ Friedr.Herder Abr.Sohn Solingen-Germany chef knife, 3 Spike Cultivator, 26” Blade Barn Scythe, 5 Spike Pitchfork
Actors Who Played Myers: Don Shanks


The Mask

The mask for Halloween V, sculpted by KNB FX, differs from the original design because instead of the mask having an emotionless face the director wanted Michael to have an “angrier” expression. Some scenes were filmed with the original mask until the director stated that the mask looked “too feminine.” In order to fix this, KNB FX sculpted a nose and lip appliance (as far as I know the lip appliance was only added to the stunt mask) and added it to the mask. At one point during filming, Donald Pleasence hit Don Shanks in the face and broke his nose. Many originally thought that the nose appliance was added to give Don Shanks extra room for his broken nose, but this was proven to be incorrect when the nose appliance rotted off of the primary hero mask and there was still a nose underneath. If the nose had been added to give Shanks more room, the original nose would’ve been cut off. Instead, the director put padding in the mask (as seen in some scenes filmed through Michael’s POV) to make the mask less tight on Shanks’ face because Akkad thought it looked “too much like his (Don’s) skin, not like a mask”. This caused the neck of the mask to flare out.


Where are the Original Masks Today?

Out of the 3 masks used for filming, only two of their locations are known. It is assumed that other blanks were made for filming but not used. One film production pull is owned by member 1mike1 and is shown below :slight_smile:.

The Primary Hero Mask

The Primary Hero was formerly in Akkad’s office, but it was rapidly deteriorating in its last known image. The nose appliance had rotted and fallen off, the neck is crumbling, so until evidence says otherwise it can be assumed that this mask is no longer around.

The Second Hero Mask

The second hero mask is owned by Myers actor Don Shanks. Don kept this mask immediately after filming and took it to many conventions over the years. Unfortunately, Shank’s would leave it [the mask] on the table, unattended, during conventions. When he was away people would grab and touch the mask, which rapidly accelerated it’s deterioration process. After some time, Don began to bring an “SSN Shanks” mask to conventions, as shown in the photos below. After years of not seeing the mask, it was announced that it would be restored by Tom Spina Designs. They did a wonderful job with the mask and photos are also shown below.

The Stunt Mask

The location of the third mask, which most assume was used for the river stunt scene, is unknown to this day.

“1mike1” Film Production Pull

This particular mask was made in 1989 for the making of Halloween V and was finished many years later by Scott of Quiet on the Set. The current owner is member “1mike1”.

The Boots

The make and model of the boots used in Halloween V are currently unknown, so any black combat/military boots would work.

  1. Hero Knife- 10’ Friedr.Herder Abr.Sohn Solingen-Germany Chef Knife
  2. 3 Spike Hand Cultivator
  3. 26” Barn Scythe
  4. 5 Spike Pitch Fork

A nice substitute since these knives are very rare and expensive would be a vintage Dexter.

2. Vintage 3 spike Cultivator with wooden handle

I am unaware of the exact brand used for this weapon, but I am sure any similar vintage 3 spike cultivator with a long wooden handle would work.

Halloween VI (1995)
Number of Masks used: 11
Types: 1 Primary Hero, 10 Stunts/masks made for filming
Boots Used: “Double H” Mens Black Leather Combat Boots
Coveralls Used: Light Grey “Dickies” Coveralls with Slanted Zippers (removed)
Weapons Used: 8" Victorinox Forschner With Rosewood Handle
Actors Who Played Myers: George P. Wilbur


The Mask

The Halloween VI mask was the first of it’s kind. This mask was sculpted by John Carl Buechler and has a very unique “goblin” look.

During filming, there was lots of pressure due to the fact that this was the first Halloween to be made by a major production company. A lot of reshoots were done to satisfy the demands of the film company, resulting in multiple versions of the film. Now, because the director signed contract that included a 3 picture film deal, he had no little to no interest in making a Halloween film. As tensions grew during shooting (extensive reshoots, cutback on pay,etc…) an angry FX artist rubbed chemicals on the inside and outside destroying the masks… There may be more to the story, but I am unaware if there is.

Where are the Original Masks Today?

Nikolas of NAG owns a copy, Darren Hughes, as does Brad Hardin. I am sure that there is a more detailed list of individuals who own screen used part VI masks, but I am unaware of them at this time. This section will be updated accordingly. Darren Hughes is lucky enough to own a copy that did not undergo the “acid bath” by the angry FX artist. It is foam filled and in Mint condition. Beautiful!

The Boots

The boots used for Halloween VI are “Double H” Mens Black Leather Combat Boots. The boots can be found pretty frequently on eBay, but they do tend to be a little pricey. There are two versions of these boots out there. One with a toe strap, as pictured in most photos below, and one without a toe strap. The latter of the two is accurate to the movie pair. While the pair without the toe strap are difficult to come by, they are more accurate. Member Lamson78 owns a pair, as shown below.

The Coveralls

The coveralls used for Halloween VI are Light Grey “Dickies” Coveralls with Slanted Zippers. The zippers have been removed as well as the patches and hammer loop. These are also pretty common and can be found on eBay :slight_smile:.

The Knife

The knife used in Halloween VI was an 8" Victorinox Forschner With Rosewood Handle. This knife is also used by Little Mikey in Rob Zombie’s Halloween Remake, but we’ll talk about that later :slight_smile:.

Halloween H20 (1998)
Number of Masks used: 4
Types: 1 mask from Halloween VI, 1 primary hero, 1 KNB reshoot mask, several stunt masks.
Boots Used: Honchos Steel Toed Men’s Work Boots
Coveralls Used: Charcoal Red Kap Coveralls
Weapons Used: 14" Wusthof Chef’s Knife
Actors Who Played Myers:Chris Durand


The Mask

The mask used in the beginning scenes of the film was left over from Halloween VI. It was not until several years ago when a member discovered this after pointing it out in a screen capture from H20. The other mask used was sculpted by KNB FX and has a very odd look to it, which is exactly why producers decided to scrap it at the last second when shooting was almost wrapped. They decided to hire the Stan Winston FX company to sculpt a new mask and reshoot almost every scene. Due to time constraints they had to leave a few in a few scenes with the KNB mask, as well as most promotional shots. However, there is one scene that they did not have time to reshoot in which they placed a mask CGI’d over Chris Durand’s head. CGI was relatively new at the time, so keep in mind this looked absolutely ridiculous.

Where are the Original Masks Today?

Member “Richard Vandark” on the board owned a stunt H20 Winston mask at one time but sold it a few years back to a collector outside of the community. User “Tony Moran Fan” also owns a screen used Winston mask. The screen used KNB masks have circulated through a couple of members on this site, but their location today is unknown.


The Winston Mask

One of the Stan Winson H20 hero mask’s is owned by the one and only Darren Hughes, and a surviving stunt copy was previously owned by Michael-Myers.net member “Richard Vandark”. Photos are below. Such a wonderful mask!

The KNB Mask

A total of 3 main KNB masks were used for filming, and one of them is currently owned by Darren Hughes. The other two locations are unknown, but I will update it as the info and pics come. More pictures of Darren’s mask, as well as some random photos of some of the other Hero KNB masks are below.

The CGI Mask

Ahhh, the huge pimple on the face of Halloween H20. The visual FX team didn’t have time to reshoot this scene, so instead they put a CGI mask over top of the KNB mask. As you can see below, horrible mistake :laughing:.

The Halloween VI Mask

This mask was made for Halloween VI but was used in the opening scenes of Halloween H20, plain and simple :slight_smile:. I am unaware of who owns this specific mask today, but I will update this section as soon as the information is provided to me :slight_smile:.

The Boots

The boots used in Halloween H20 were Gorilla Steel Toed Men’s Work Boots. David Brandon of Horrordomain used to (and still might) own a supposed pair of production boots that he often claims were used in Halloween VI, but the true on screen boots from Halloween H20 are owned by Darren Hughes.

The Coveralls

The coveralls used in Halloween H20 are Charcoal Red Kap Coveralls. These coveralls are fairly cheap and still made! Some websites have them as low as $27.99! They can also be found on eBay.

The Knife

The knife used in Halloween H20 was a 14" Wusthof chef’s knife. This knife will run you about $500, so I definitely suggest buying one that looks similar or buying a replica from one of the talented knife makers on this board.

Halloween Resurrection (2002)
Number of Masks used: 18+ (?)
Types: For sure 1 Hero, possibly 1 stunt, 1 clown mask, For Sure 15 masks “made for film”, possibly more
Boots Used: Black Greb Mark III Combat boots.
Coveralls Used: Charcoal Canadian Linen Twill Action Back
Weapons Used: 12" Victorinox Forschner with Rosewood Handle

The Mask

The Halloween Resurrection mask looked much angrier than the Halloween masks before it. The mask sported painted eyebrows, human hair, and very sharp distinctive features.


Where are the Original Masks Today?

The hero mask was sold at auction several years ago to a private collector, the stunt mask’s location is unknown, and the 15 “Limited Edition” masks are in the hands of numerous collectors.

The Hero Mask

The hero Halloween Resurrection mask was owned by Malek Akkad for many years after the filming of Halloween VIII but he donated it to CharityBuzz to be sold at auction. The final bid price was just upwards of $23,000. It was sold to a private collector.

The Stunt Mask

Assuming that there was a stunt mask for the film, it’s location is unknown.

The 15 “Made for Film” Masks

After Halloween Resurrection was released, company Cinema Secrets released several versions of the Halloween Resurrection mask- Classic, Economy, Deluxe, and Collectors Edition. The Classic was very cheap, the economy was also mass produced, the deluxe was mass produced but had AMAZING movie detail, the collector’s edition was limited to 1000 and was accompanied by a COA. It had full movie details but no human hair.

Now for the Limited Edition masks. 15, yes, 15 of these masks were made to be used as back-ups for the film. These masks have all the details of the original movie mask and are well worth their high price tag.

The Clown Mask

The clown mask worn by Harold in Halloween Resurrection was a “Merry Clown” mask made by Cesar Inc. The actual screen used mask is owned by Darren Hughes.

Halloween (2007)
Number of Masks used: 4+
Types: 1 “Clown” mask, 1 “Clean” Hero, 1 “Escape” Hero, 1 Scarred Hero, possibly several stunt masks.
Boots Used: HEAVILY WEATHERED Carolina Logger Boots (Model 8519)
Coveralls Used: Carhartt X02 Coveralls
Weapons Used: 10" Victorinox Forschner with Rosewood Handle, 12" Victorinox Forschner with Rosewood Handle
Actors Who Played Myers: Daeg Faerch, Tyler Mane


The Mask

The “Myers” masks used in Halloween (2007) was custom sculpted by Wayne Toth by using a lifecast of actor Tyler Mane’s face, giving the mask most of Mane’s features. Because Toth didn’t account for latex shrinkage in the sculpt, the mask was very tight on Mane’s face. Michael’s character for this film was supposed to have long hair, but actor Tyler Mane couldn’t fit a wig under the msak because it was so tight. Because of this Toth glue hair inside the neck of the mask. This was the first mask in the whole series to change up the face of Michael Myers.

Where are the Original Masks Today?

Because there were so many masks, they are scattered throughout cast and crew. Daeg owns a clown and a clean myers mask, Mane owns a scarred myers and the “escape mask”, and it is assumed that Rob Zombie owns one of each. Malek Akkad also owns a scarred version. The others may be owned by various cast and crew, but it is unknown at this time.

The Clown Mask

Young Michael’s clown mask in Halloween (2007) was directly cast off of an original Collegeville clown mask. The original masks were very flimsy, so they cast their own copies in thick plastic that would be more durable for filming. It is confirmed that the hero clown mask is owned by Daeg Faerch. Rob Zombie may own a copy, but this is unconfirmed.

The Clean Mask

As stated above, the clean mask was made by sculpting by Wayne Toth using a lifecast of Tyler Mane. I have not seen a photo of the screen used clean mask. If anyone is able to provide one, please do and I will add it here :slight_smile:

The Escape Mask

The escape mask was worn by Tyler Mane in the “Escaping the Sanitarium” scenes, as well as the “Joe Grizzly” kill scenes. It was a hard platic shell with paper mache laid overtop of it. Several were made, but one is confirmed to be owned by Tyler Mane.

The Scarred Mask

The scarred mask was also created by retooling a lifecast of Tyler Mane’s face. Several people from the list of individuals that own a copy of this mask are Tyler Mane, Rob Zombie, and Malek Akkad.

The Boots

The boots used in Halloween (2007) were HEAVILY WEATHERED Carolina Logger Boots (Model 8519). I believe that this particular model of boot is not produced anymore, but pairs can often be found second hand on eBay. If not, there are still similar pairs that can be purchased.

The Coveralls

The coveralls used in Rob Zombie’s Halloween Remake (2007) were Carhartt X02 coveralls. The on screen coveralls were heavily weathered, obviously, and featured several custom “patches” on the arm and breast area. These coveralls are fairly expensive but can still be found all over the internet.

Photo Credit: Unknown

Weapons Used

The filmmakers working on Rob Zombie’s Halloween remake ran into a bit of a problem with the knife being used. The 10" version looked great in Daeg Faerch’s (young Michael Myers’) hand but tiny in Tyler Mane’s hand. The 12" version of the knife looked great in Tyler Mane’s hand but comically large in Daeg Faerch’s hand. To solve this, they simply used both sizes of the knife. The 10" Victorinox Forschnerfor Daeg Faerch’s scenes and the 12" Victorinox Forschner for Tyler Mane’s scenes.

  1. Young Michael’s Knife- 10" Victorinox Forschner with Rosewood Handle
  2. Mature Michael’s Knife- 12" Victorinox Forschner with Rosewood Handle

1. Young Michael’s Knife- 10" Victorinox Forschner with Rosewood Handle

As stated above, film producers used a 10" Victorinox Forschner knife with a Rosewood Handle because the 12" version looked comically large in Daeg Faerch’s Hand. Interestingly enough, this is the same knife used in Halloween VI.

2. Mature Michael’s Knife- 12" Victorinox Forschner with Rosewood Handle

Also stated above, film producers used a 12" Victorinox Forschner knife with a Rosewood Handle for mature Michael’s scenes because the 10" version looked comically small in Tyler Mane’s Hand. Interestingly enough, this is the same knife used in Halloween Resurrection.

Halloween 2 (2009)
Number of Masks used: 3+
Types: 1 “Dream Sequence” mask, 1 “Revolver” Hero, 1 “Exposed” Hero, possibly several stunt masks.
Boots Used: HEAVILY WEATHERED Carolina Men’s 8 in. Steel Toe Boots (Model 1809)
Outfit Used: Weathered Carhartt X01 Coveralls, Fox Urban Utility Jacket Woodland Camo, Dark Green Dickies TJ319 Rustic Twill Hooded Jacket, Weathered Kenneth Cole Reaction Black Wool Fairmount Coat, “Hugo Valentino” Mens Flannel Quilted Button Up
Weapons Used: 12" Victorinox Forschner with Rosewood Handle and a custom made bowie knife modeled after the Hunters Companion Bowie Knife.
Actors Who Played Myers: Tyler Mane

The Mask

The mask for Halloween 2 was also sculpted by Wayne Toth used Mane’s lifecast again. Learning from his mistakes, Toth sculpted the mask big enough to account for latex shrinkage. As the movie progresses, the mask deteriorates further and further. Due to this, a fraction of the mask’s face is ripped off when Michael is attacked by a stripper. This is the first film to have Michael’s face exposed through most of the movie.

Screen used “exposed” mask. Photo Credit: Unknown

Where are the Original Masks Today?

Many masks were made for filming, so it is likely that there are versions somewhere out there that we don’t know about. Mane owns an “exposed” Myers mask, as shown above. Rob Zombie owns one, possibly several of each mask. Malek Akkad also owns an “exposed” version. The others may be owned by various cast and crew, but it is unknown at this time.

The Dream Sequence Mask

The Dream sequence mask was sculpted by Wayne Toth using Tyler Mane’s lifecast and is seen at the end of Rob Zombie’s Halloween and in the opening Dream Sequence of Rob Zombie’s H2. It is unconfirmed but believed that Rob Zombie and Malek Akkad own at least one of these masks.

The Revolver Mask

The Revolver mask was sculpted by Wayne Toth using Tyler Mane’s lifecast and is seen on Michael for the second quarter of Rob Zombie’s H2. The mask is aging and falling apart rapidly but does not yet have the famous “exposed” look that we all are familiar with. It is unconfirmed but believed that Rob Zombie and Malek Akkad own at least one of these masks. I do not have a picture of the Revolver mask to add, but if someone provides one I would be more than happy to include it

The Exposed Mask

The Exposed mask was sculpted by Wayne Toth using Tyler Mane’s lifecast and is seen on Michael for the second half of Rob Zombie’s H2. As the mask is already aging and falling apart rapidly, Michael and a stripper get into a conflict and she slaps him in the face. This causes half of the face to rip off giving us the famous “exposed” look. It is unconfirmed but believed that Rob Zombie owns at least one of these masks. Malek Akkad owns one of the escape masks. Tyler Mane owns at least one of these masks.

The Boots

The boots used in Halloween 2 (2009) were Carolina Men’s 8 in. Model 1809 Steel Toe Boots. These boots are slightly different than those used in Halloween (2007), as pointed out by member Davy Krueger. This particular model of boot is still produced, but the design has changed a bit making them a little inaccurate to what is seen on screen. The old model had rivets lacing the laces, like most boots do, but they replaced those rivets with hooks on the newer models.

The Outfit

In Halloween 2 (2009) Michael wears what has been dubbed the “Hobo” outfit. For additional details see sections below. It consists of 4 layers, then the coveralls:

Layer 1
The first and outermost layer consists of a Woodland Camo Fox Urban Utility Jacket that is weathered and has had the sleeves removed at the seams.

New Woodland Camo Jacket

Layer 2

The second layer is a Dark Green Dickies TJ319 Rustic Twill Hooded Jacket with the sleeves removed. For the film costume the lining of layer 1 was taken out and this jacket was sewn inside of it, with the exception of the hood. Many costume makers just sew the hood onto the camo jacket as it is an easier process.

New Dickies Hooded Jacket

Layer 3

The third layer consists of a Weathered Kenneth Cole Reaction Black Wool Fairmount Coat. This has been slightly weathered with rips, tears, and holes.

New Kenneth Cole Black Wool Coat

Layer 4

The fourth layer is a “Hugo Valentino” Mens Flannel Quilted Button Up. The Shirt has had the quilted lining ripped out on the button seams and sleeves, exposed, and weathered with holes and dirt. Many costume makers have found it easier to buy quilted fabric and sew it into the sleeves and shirt, then weather it.

New “Hugo Valentino” Mens Flannel

Layer 5, The Coveralls

The coveralls used in Rob Zombie’s Halloween 2 (2009) were Carhartt X01 coveralls. The on screen coveralls were heavily weathered, obviously, and featured several custom “patches” on the arm and breast area. These coveralls are fairly expensive but can still be found all over the internet.

Weapons Used

There were two knives featured in Rob Zombie’s Halloween 2. A 12" Victorinox Forschner with Rosewood Handle and a custom made bowie knife modeled after the Hunters Companion Bowie Knife.

  1. Hospital Scene Knife- 12" Victorinox Forschner with Rosewood Handle
  2. Bowie Knife- Custom Made Knife by Sword and Stone, Modeled after the Hunters Companion Bowie Knife

1. Hospital Scene Knife- 12" Victorinox Forschner with Rosewood Handle

The knife from H2’s hospital scene was a 12" Victorinox Forschner with Rosewood Handle. This is the same knife as used in the first Rob Zombie’s Halloween, as well as Halloween Resurrection!

Photo Credit:OSOGRANDKNIVES.com

2. Bowie Knife- Custom Made Knife by Sword and Stone, Modeled after the Hunters Companion Bowie Knife

This bowie knife was custom made for filming by the company Sword and Stone. They claim that it was an original idea, but the knife’s blade bears some SERIOUS resemblance to the Hunter’s Companion Bowie Knife. The HC Bowie’s usually run about $90 and most members take off the original handle and add their own. This makes for the most accurate H2 bowie.

Halloween (2018)
Number of Masks used: 5
Types: ?
Boots Used: ARCTIV8 Men’s EARTH Pro 6 Inches Premium Full-Grain Leather Plain Rubber Sole Soft Toe Work Boots
Coveralls Used: Weathered 9.5 oz Charcoal Workrite Ultra Soft Work Coveralls .
Undershirt Used: Navy Heather Gold Toe Men’s Crew Neck T-Shirt
Weapons Used: 8" J.A. Henckels International Chef’s Knife, Vintage 12" REX Chef’s Knife
Actors Who Played Myers: Nick Castle, James Jude Courtney


The Mask

The mask was sculpted by Christopher Nelson, the FX artist for popular movies and TV shows such as Suicide Squad and American Horror Story, to name a few. He studied latex rot heavily while making this mask and in my opinion he did a great job!

Where are the Original Masks Today?

5 masks were used for the movie. 1 is owned by Nick Castle, 1 is in the possession of James Jude Courtney, the others I am unsure of.

The Boots

It appears as if the boots used in the Halloween 2018 film are ARCTIV8 Men’s EARTH Pro 6 Inches Premium Full-Grain Leather Plain Rubber Sole Soft Toe Work Boots.

The Coveralls

Several minutes after a photo surfaced of Nick in the Halloween coveralls, I identified them as Heavily Weathered Workrite Ultra Soft Work Coveralls. The color is charcoal, they are 9.5 oz and they have been weathered for the film. Nick claimed they were navy blue, but this does not check out when comparing store-bought Navy Blue and store-bought Charcoal Workrites. Below is a photo showing the same charcoal pair, just in different lighting.

EXTRA SPACE FOR HALLOWEEN KILLS AND ENDS

DAMN. That took forever (almost 2 months). Hope you guys enjoy!

Best thread ever! Btw, add Debra Hill to the list of names of people that played the Shape in H1. :rock: :rock:

Thank you!!! And Done :slight_smile:

Dude, that was seriously comprehensive. I’ll have to read through every last detail some other time because it’s late now and the only reason I’m up was to see the Cubs win. I sincerely envy and admire your dedication to this. This is without a doubt, THE most comprehensive thread for the Myers costumes I’ve ever seen. There are, however, a few items of notice I’d like to make known.

The image credit for the colorization of this photo is Nick Mulpagano:

This image actually shows a morph between the hero during H2, just Dick Warlock stretching the mask differently:

As for the boots in RZH2, I have good reason to believe they were NOT the same boots used in the first one. These auction images match up with the more stressed toe on the left boot, and show to have a blue lining on the inside, which the sub zero insulated Carolinas used in RZH1 did not have. They are also shorter than the RZH1 boots, and may or may not be Carolinas at all.




BTW, I never thought I’d see those old pics of that knife again! :laughing: Sure does bring back memories. It was the first Myers prop I ever added to my collection. Still have it, too. Never did get it converted. MickiBanez stopped doing conversions before I could ask him.

Debra also played a scene when Tommy is looking out the window and sees the Shape.

HUGE props for you to take the time to make this way more than awesome thread!! So many great references and top notch information about the history of the Halloween franchise as well as the fan and company produced replica white masks!! Congratulations on making THE go-to guide for this community for years to come!!

This NEEDS to be a master thread!

Great information! Who weathers their masks with peanut butter to be accurate? :d

I personally think those MW coveralls look spot on over the big macs…


Props to you for mention mask makers who aren’t popular on the forums but still did amazing work on their masks. Too much bias on this forum sometimes especially in the top 10 poll every year. Some of the best masks don’t get love here.

It’s also damn sad that the guy who bought the original in the 90’s STILL hasn’t taken the time to restore it… as far as we know. You think if it was his passion or important to him he would have done it by now.

Maybe before we all die it will get the love it deserves. :axe:

Incredible amount of dedication & effort that went into compiling all of that information. Well done!

Thank you very much for the info and for the compliments. I have made adjustments as needed :slight_smile:

I will look more into the screen used RZ H2 boots! Thank you for the lead :slight_smile:

Wow! What an amazing compliment! Thank you tons :smiley:.

That would be seriously AWESOME.

I also favor the MW, but that’s just my opinion :slight_smile:. And thank you. That list barely scratched the surface. I’ll be adding more masks as time goes on. I actually have his phone number and plan on speaking to him soon! Maybe we will finally get some pics and answers :sunglasses: :sunglasses: :sunglasses:

Thank you, sir :slight_smile:

Man this has to be THE ULTIMATE myers guide. I truly appreciate how you took the time and effort to put all that together, it’s just beyond words how awesome it is! And I’m going to be honest, reading through it, I actually learned a bunch of things I didn’t even know before! Again, thank you so much for posting this! :slight_smile:

THANK YOU! It means a lot to hear these kind words, that is what this thread was supposed to be all about- informing everyone about the series and making sure it was as thorough as possible! Hey, even I learned some stuff while making it! I am a firm believer in the fact that there is always something new to learn. Glad you enjoyed it :drinkers:

:rock: Ghostly you did an outstanding job bro! Meticulous, tedious, and downright specific information available for all to read. Thank you for taking so much time dude. RZH2 boots are for sure not Carolina Loggers as Davy said, however no biggie at all my friend. I appreciate the immense effort you put into this insane article, thanks again! :rock:

Thanks very much! It is no problem. This community helps each other out a ton so I figured I would give back a little :slight_smile:. I am still searching for the perfect RZ H2 boots, so I will update that ASAP. And no worries about pointing it out, there’s always more to learn :slight_smile:.

The last 2 picture you used for the H1 coveralls are now owned by me. I’ve since dyed them to be a more olivewood color
Snapchat-4994871842200460504.jpg

Awesome! could you post a pic or two of the back of them? I’m trying to get an idea of the stitching on this pair. also, do they have elastic at the left and right back portions of the waistband?
