I'm a huge fan of the original, and given I grew up in a coal mining area, this is a costume I've always wanted to do as well.

Pretty much I would think a black jumpsuit and gas mask from an Army & Navy store (like I Goldberg in Philly), the hardhat with light, boots, gloves, a pic. You could probably assemble it all pretty cheaply.

This should be a pretty easy costume to assemble, but the effect would be great. Very scary!

Wow, we all are on the right track. Getting close. I still haven't had any luck finding a look-alike My Bloody Valentine 3D movie gas mask. How about the lighted helmet? It looks like an older version than the helmets that are available today? If anybody finds any website links to online stores that may sell this equipment, please let us know.

Check attachment. How about this mask? I might be able to get it. It is inexpensive & maybe it can be modified with a hose??

I grew up in a mining town and the ideas mentioned so far are great. The helmets above are perfect, they just need a quick coat of krylon fusion black paint to be ready.

The mask will be the tricky part. I would buy the mask that was mentioned above and cut out the center mouth portion for a hose. What you need is a small piece of sump pump hose. It is very flexible and looks just like the hose in the picture. The bag he is wearing could probably be found, but I would look at some thrift stores and try to find an old leather purse. Then you could cut it down and make a nice looking bag for the hose to go into. If it is leather you could paint it and run a sanding block over it and rough it up a little.

Does this help any? I'm going to keep searching online and see if anything comes up.

Wanted to delurk a moment to help out. Take a look at this:

WWII Canadian gas mask

I don't think you can get much closer than that! A little flat black paint on a few areas and you're good-to-go.

And here's a 10%-off coupon code: ABHIRSCH

And now back to lurk mode...

I've never seen it, what is this one about??
Do yourself a favor, buy or rent the original from 1981 (just released with cut gore added back in!!)


The 3D reamke is a steaming pile of garbage, they took everything cool about the original and dumbed it down for todays youth. Think Horror movie meets Gossip Girl, not to mention the horror of CGI blood, ugh.
