About Leatherface Costume
In the original Texas Chainsaw Massacre movie, no one knows what Leatherface looks like since he wasn’t seen without his iconic human skin mask. He works like a cow killed in a meat factory. But unlike other horror villains who kill people for malice or revenge, it was revealed that Leatherface kills because of fear. He kills people as self-defense because he was afraid of them. Leatherface is also shown to have little control over his life, as he would follow whatever his family tells him to do.
His family forced Leatherface to start killing at a young age using a chainsaw. Jed was admitted to a mental institute after leading the sheriff’s daughter into a death trap. Jed is unable to talk due to the sheriff shooting him in the mouth when he was escaping the institute. The human skin mask that he is wearing came from the nurse at the mental institute named Lizzie. As an iconic horror villain, Leatherface is one of the favorite cosplay options for people looking to dress up as a scary character.
