UPDATE: Jason Takes Manhattan Costume At Planet Hollywood

UPDATE: MARIO KIRNER WAS KIND ENOUGH TO SEND IN SOME OF HIS OWN PHOTOS OF THE PLANET HOLLYWOOD DISPLAY AND OFFER INSIGHT INTO THE PIECES THAT MAKE UP THE DISPLAY. BELOW ARE HIS COMMENTS ON THE COMPARISONS OF THE DISPLAY ITEMS AT PLANET HOLLYWOOD TO THE SCREEN USED PIECES HE HAS IN HIS COLLECTION. BIG THANKS TO MARIO FOR OFFERING HIS ANALYSIS AND INFORMATION.


Shirt
The shirt itself matches mine 100%. Same brand, same color, same bottons, same secret detail that was added to both shirts by the producion. Just one difference, the condition of the Planet Hollywood shirt is just a bit worser. The big hole below his right hand chest side is ripped through while mine is still a “hole”. And most notable, it features 4 holes on the back while mine has only one hole. I searched through the film and each time you see Jason from the back you see a shirt with one hole only. The last time at Time Square. So I think it has something to do with continuity of the storyline and this shirt was worn by Kane during the toxic wash scenes to simulate the shirt/clothes in a worser condition, when attacked by the toxic.

Mask
The hock looks a bit different compared to mine. The shape is a bit off and the color and paint looks different too. It has different straps and closures attached to it. In 2006 I met the memorabilia manager Carmen Hemus who confirmed that the mask is indeed a replica that was added to round this display up.

Mario mentioned and also it is apparent in the full image above, that the Planet Hollywood costume consits of shirt, pants, boots, gloves, head appliance and one arm appliance.


There have been a few requests from visitors to see what the Jason costumes look like today outside of the films that they originally appeared in. Most of the costumes used in the films now reside in private collections, such as Mario Kirner’s Friday the 13th Props Museum. I usually forward fans over to his site to get an idea of what the items look like. However, I found an image of the costume from Jason Takes Manhattan today and wanted to post it up for everyone to see.

This pic was taken at Planet Hollywood, Las Vegas and is a good angular view of what Kane Hodder wore in the film. I don’t know too much more about the pieces, but it is definitely cool to look at. Perhaps we can get more insight into the origins of these Part 8 items very soon.

  1. Sweet!!!

  3. awesome pic, Jason i’d love to see that thing in person. I always think of the continuity problems when I look at the part 8 clothing… not only did his clothing magically heal after being rags in 7, it healed into a different brand! lol

  4. Wow! I actually saw that there back in 1994. I was only 16 so me and my sis had to keep ourselves occupied wile the adults gambled..lol I took a pic so someone in my family must have it!

    I remember seeing the commercial on tv for the first time and mentioned to my dad that he must have got new clothes just like in Part 3. He laughed and said that it was probably the magic of movies. Even after I saw the movie I was still trying to figure out how he got those clothes. Continuity is a grey area indeed in the franchise. ;)

  6. maybe he got the clothes from the fisherman he drag to the lake in the deleted scene of part 7

  8. Not so much a fan of Part 8 as much as I am of the rest of the movies, but I gotta say…that costume is kinda scary, especially in the bottom pick with how the lighting is. I don’t think I could really sit near that and enjoy a meal. LOL
