Just... damn.

YouTuber thechief6969 shows off his rather impressive Freddy Krueger get-up, featuring a silicone prosthetic mask applied to his face. You often see people dressed as Freddy wearing a standard over-the-head rubber mask, which of course robs the character of his expressive features.

So between the high-quality mask, the glove, the sweater, and of course, the trademark fedora, this cosplayer basically IS Freddy.
