Bruce Campbell has made a name for himself as a B-movie hero, largely in part due to his role of “Ash Williams” in the Sam Raimi films “Evil Dead” and “Army of Darkness.” Ash oozes all that is manly—a torn shirt gives him the look of a man who has gone toe to toe with a few zombies in his day. Only adding to his machismo is a head full of thick, dark hair, an arm that doubles as a chainsaw, and a very well-pronounced chin. This Halloween, show your friends that you are a force that the undead should not dare reckon with by dressing up as Ash.
Things You'll Need
- Blue long-sleeved shirt with collar
- Dark brown slacks
- Plastic chainsaw
- Leather glove
- Super glue
- Boomstick (fake rifle)
- Black paint
Apply a generous layer of super glue to the top side of your right glove.
Attach the plastic chainsaw to the glove and press down. You may want to set something heavy like a book on top of the chainsaw so it stays in place and dries.
Paint the orange tip of the boomstick (to become a fake rifle) with black paint. This will make the gun seem a little more authentic.
Rub your blue collared shirt in the dirt. Similarly, cut holes and tears along the sleeves and chest of the shirt. You want to make it look like it has seen battle.
Rub some of the dirt on your face and arms as well.
Get dressed in your shirt and pants. After your glove has dried, wear it on your right hand. Carry your boomstick rifle in your other hand.
Tips & Warnings
- If you don’t have a thick mane of wavy, dark hair, fake it with a wig.
- The Evil Dead DVD set comes in a case that resembles the Necronomicon. Consider carrying this around with you.
- Dirt, while authentic, is dirty. If you are not comfortable rubbing dirt on your body, opt for brown makeup. Loose powder will work best.
