This is one of my all time favorite movies. Frank used to scare me so bad! But honestly great costume idea I am really looking forward to seeing how it turns out! P.S. If you haven't take a look at the official Donnie Darko Website they did a Really good job on it

Shamefull - but I have never seen the movie. But that mask you are making is REALLY spooky, and its really a good copy of the one in the picture! I cant wait to see it all put together.

I've never seen anyone do Frank for Halloween and always thought it would be awesome. If I didn't have such an aversion to fursuit costumes (I'd feel like I was roasting heh) I'd want to do him. But I doubt I could do near as well as you with the mask.

And I'm with Loki... those "contact" scenes with Frank were terrifying.

Gums added, painted with primer.
(Still need to trim teeth, and use filler primer to eliminate paper lines)

I have sworn to do this costume for so long now, and every year I just dont start it in time.

This looks FANTASTIC, a truely great job.

One little piece that i've always wondered,
how do you see with it on??
what type of material did you use, or have you slits??

Thank you all for the compliments.

The actual mask has slits, but I went with a scrim material soaked in Stiffy and molded over plastic Easter eggs for the eyes so it would be hard to tell how I am looking out.

Great job! I'm not really a fan of Donnie Darko (I have my problems with the film), I know a good Frank when I see one.

I must say Death Dealer when I saw this thread I thought " Oh, just someone showing off the Frank costume they bought at the store " I'm glad I clicked on. Brilliant job on the costume and great job on the papier mache! Just WOW!

I was scared of that bunny in the movie, and I'm scared of that bunny now. You will most certainly be putting fear into the hearts of children everywhere.
