LOL, you see Kane Hodder sitting at his table before the pro op, you see him leave his table during pro op times, you see him come back after pro ops are over - what, do you think he sneaked back up to his room and sent in some other dude to do his costumed ops?
So if the paying customer sees the real actor at the con and knows for 100% that it's the real guy in the photo, what's the problem? Do you want to be able to easier brag to your friends and be able to "prove" that it's really Kane Hodder in that mask? Who gives a crap what somebody else thinks? I'm in this hobby to do things that I find enjoyment in - if other people enjoy my pics when I post them, that's great, but if they aren't impressed, I could care less. Do this hobby for yourself, not to impress others.
Well, ALL pro op prices are ridiculous - no names who are con regulars start at at LEAST $40 for pro ops, and that's without any costuming gimmicks. And the funny thing is, if people care about "validity", the real faces of Steve Dash, CJ Graham, Ken Kerzinger, etc. are never seen in any F13 movie, so them wearing a hockey mask costume is about a million times more "valid" then a picture of just the dude in street clothes.paphotoguy wrote:I'm about as big of a Friday the 13th fan as you'll ever find, but I don't see the appeal in costume'd ops. Maybe if the guys were wearing original, screen used costumes, but even then it would be a stretch for me. And those prices are ridiculous.
