I finished this one a few days for my good pal, Benny. We both decided to go for more of a vintage converted Kirk look rather than the normal "hero" style replica. I wasn't sure of exactly what I wanted to do with this one, but my bud Ryan helped me with this particular scenario.... He explained that I should go for the look of a conversion done by a true HalloweeN fan to his own aging 75 Kirk.... not necessarily trying to mimic each and every detail of the hero, but more of a personal vision.
Long story short, it's not a dedicated H1 or H2, but rather a true HalloweeN fan's interpretation of the infamous white mask!
I really appreciate you letting me run wild with this one, Benny! Thanks for looking guys, and my apologies in advance for the pic heavy post! What can I say.... I love snapping Myers shots when I have the time! I can't wait to get more of these on the work table!!!..... soon, very soon!
p.s. Hey Benny, this one looks so old that I might have to throw a few moth balls in the box!

James I had a theory when you and I decided to do the mask in this manner and my theory proved true.
We all know the hero was basically "lightning in a bottle". I think trying too hard to recreate the hero sometimes takes away from the essence of how the hero was really created. By simply doing a "Myers conversion" I felt the mask would have more of a raw feel similar to that of the hero and the pics speak for themselves. You NAILED IT brother and this is a FANTASTIC replica of the way I see H1 Myers!!!! Thanks so much buddy!
This pic says it all to me:
By the way tell Jett thanks for modeling the mask for me, he did a great job!
