    I was wondering if anyone knows the process that things like wardrobe and weapons go through in horror movies to get the way they look in the movies. I was on a couple sites that said that each prop in a movie is hand crafted to look the way it looks.

    For halloween I want to be leatherface and I want to turn a brand new dress shirt, slacks, shoes, butcher's apron, and chainsaw into pieces of crap without actually making them pieces of crap.

    its all airbrushed AFAIK.

    youll need that to get a real hollywood look.

    usually its makeup that gets re-applied each scene/day/take sometimes.

    if you are referring to stuff like LOTR Weta Workshop stuff, its airbrush.

    In your case I think youd be best off just beating the crap out of your stuff.

    Like that jeans commercial where a guy is beating the crap out of NEW jeans so his girlfriend thinks they are his "older and used" ones. with matching stains.

    slam it in the door or your car and go down the highway.

    run over it on your bicylce.

    throw dirt at it, stain it, wash it over and over with soap and water.

    just do what would have actually been done to it, only in the span of a few hours and not years.

    nowadays, you should just wear a nice new shirt, and then doctor it up in post.
