Pop Quiz – Friday the 13th

friday-the-13th-mask

It is difficult to think of Friday the 13th without thinking about the terrifying image of Jason’s iconic mask as he poked and slashed his way through a myriad of teenagers in a myriad of films.

In honour of Friday the 13th, your Pop Quiz Challenge is to create a  mask creepy enough to scare the living crap out of unsuspecting victims. You may include the character’s head and shoulders if you wish, but the focus must be the mask.

You only get one entry so be creative, and above all else, have fun!

All entries must be in JPG or PNG form (BMPs are too big), posted to a publicly accessible website (like the HeroMachine forums,ImageShackPhotoBucket, or whatever);

  • Entries must be made as a comment or comments to this post, containing a link directly to the image and the character name;
  • The image must be new and designed specifically for the Pop Quiz;
  • No copyrighted characters please – they will be deleted.
  • Please name your files as [your name]-[character name].[file extension] before you upload it. So DiCicatriz, for instance, would save his “Bayou Belle” character image as DiCicatriz-BayouBelle.png.
  • Please make the link go directly to the image (like this) and not to a hosting jump page (like this). See this post on how to get the direct link for most sites.

This contest will close at noon Eastern on Sunday, June 15th.

Plenty of good entries this week but I had to disqualify a few due to either improperly naming the file or because it came in after the 7am Eastern time deadline. So without further ado I give you my top 5 in no particular order.
