Every ‘Friday the 13th’ Fanatic dreams of owning their favorite Jason Voorhees Masks from the Franchise. So while browsing the net one day, looking for THE BEST versions of the masks I could find, I came across your typical/popular finds, the ones you see in stores around Halloween, the ones on Amazon and what not. None of which were very appealing when it comes to being a ‘replica mask’, though some were actually branded “Replica” and looked NOTHING like what you see in the films. I wanted something that was as close to the on-screen appearance of the mask as it could get.
So as my search continued, through Instagram (@crimson_mask_studios) and Facebook, I discovered Crimson Mask Studios, an independent company out of Chicago, IL. run by a Die-Hard Horror Fan by the name of Collin X. As I browsed through pictures of his masks, I was absolutely AMAZED at what I had found. Finally, someone who created these masks with 110% Dedication and detail. Collin works hard day and night to bring the best in not only Jason Masks, but Latex Masks, Props, and more. His work on the Jason Hockey Masks is absolutely amazing. The detail and look of his masks are as close to screen accurate as it gets.
Being a HUGE Fan of Kane Hodder as Jason Voorhees, I was looking for a Part 8 – ‘Jason Takes Manhattan Mask‘. I immediately messaged Collin asking about one. He promptly responded to my email and was ready to get to work on my mask ASAP. As he got the process started on creating this mask, he posted pictures of the process, and kept in touch with me as he progressed. As the mask got closer to completion I could not wait for it to arrive. The pictures looked amazing, as if the mask had come straight out of the movie.
When Collin shipped the mask, he provided me with a picture of the box and tracking info. Upon it’s arrival I opened the package, which was very safely protected by plenty of plastic and paper to ensure it would not be damaged during shipment. As I revealed this awesome piece of work. The mask was more that I imagined, and I was in awe at how detailed and screen accurate it looked. I could not be more satisfied.
This Manhattan Killer Hockey Mask is priced at $95.00 + Shipping, and is worth every bit. You cannot put a price on owning such a iconic piece of this franchise. It is a resin copy, hand painted, made with high quality fiberglass, and comes with leather straps. Pick this mask up, it will not disappoint.
All in all, Crimson Mask Studios does some of the best work you will find. Keep in mind that it is run solely by Collin X and may take a few weeks longer than usual (2-4 Weeks to be exact), he hand crafts each and every mask with the highest quality. So head on over to Crimson Mask Studios and check out the Horror Masterpieces of Collin X.
