Jason Voorhees Friday the 13th DIY Costume Guide
Learn how to dress like Jason from Friday the 13th for cosplay and Halloween

In Friday the 13th, Jason Voorhees is the classic hockey-masked murderer of Camp Crystal Lake. Coming back to life again and again only to kill whoever he comes in contact with, Jason is forever a horrifying pop culture figure. If you ever see a man on Friday the 13th wearing a grungy outfit, an old hockey mask, and carrying a machete…you better run!

Jason’s look is freaky and iconic. He wears a cream hockey goalie mask and wears tattered dark clothes, gloves and boots. He carries a very used and bloodied machete to chop up anyone unlucky enough to meet him.

How to Dress Like Jason Voorhees from Friday the 13th


All you need for Jason’s head is a hockey mask. Replicas of his specific mask are available online, or you can buy a regular white one and paint it to look more like his. 


Jason’s jacket is really falling apart, so find a cheap brown jacket at a thrift store and cut it with scissors or an exacto knife and rip it and try to deliberately stain it. Underneath, wear a dark shirt that is also ripped up and grungy. 


Jason’s pants are dark and not very form-fitting. You may already own a pair that could work for this costume, but if not, you could find a pair at a thrift store and treat them similarly to the shirt by ripping them up a little and smearing fake blood on them. 


Jason wears thick, dark gloves, almost like a pair of puffy snow gloves. 


In the movies, Jason is tramping through the woods wearing a work-wear type of boot. If you own a pair of dark work or hiking boots, you could use those, otherwise check out a shoe store or a thrift store and find some used, beat-up ones. 


Costume stores may sell plastic machetes and you can use red paint to make it look bloody. You can also find fake machetes for sale online.
