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.
Items You’ll Need to Complete the Costume:
- Hockey Mask
- Torn-up Brown Jacket
- Dark Undershirt
- Dark Pants

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.
