One of the best costumes you can ever make or wear, especially for halloween is a Leatherface costume from The Texas Chainsaw Massacre.
Leatherface Costume – Texas Chainsaw Massacre
Sure, you could go out and buy a Leatherface costume but that can be expensive and it will not be 100% movie accurate. If you want the very best Leatherface costume that is 100% accurate then you need to make one yourself. A Leatherface costume is relatively simple and you will only need to buy a couple of items to have a movie accurate Leatherface costume.
One of the main parts of any Leatherface costume is the Leatherface mask.
If you get this wrong then the costume is going to be completely wrong.
Thankfully there are plenty of reasonably priced movie accurate Leatherface mask’s available to buy. Since Leatherface seems to change his mask in each and every movie you need to decide which Leatherface incarnation you want to look like. We feel the original is always the best.
For whatever reason Leatherface always wears a necktie. When he is seen wearing his butchers apron he wears his tie over the top of his butchers apron.
For your Leatherface costume buy a black tie like the one he wears and wear it with the collar of the shirt unfastened and the tie loose around the neck. The tie Leatherface wears has a strange stripe down it.
Make sure the tie is over the top of the butchers apron.
