I don't think there are any threads based on this...I have been wrong before. You're a big boy, though. I trust you searched first.

I voted for dark blue. He stole them from a tow-truck driver for 1-2, obviously wasn't in 3, then stole them from another mechanic in 4 for 4-7 or 8, unless he switched pairs. They were blackish in Zombieween, but I hate remakes with a passion, so I'm sticking to the OG. Taking it from my dad, mechanic's coveralls are most usually always dark blue. Halloween's actually on right now if my special someone would turn it to IFC, so I could see.

You may be able to just buy the coveralls and buy some gray Rit dye to diffuse the color a bit. Both colors working together would give you the dirty effect. I'm having to Rit dye about 75% of my Heath Ledger Joker outfit, and the stuff works very well. When I put together my TMNT '90 Casey Jones costume last year, I used tan and dark brown to dirty up the clothing and after a delicate wash and heavy drying, I achieved the effect I was after.

Any Wal-Mart or Michael's (no pun intended) craft store. Rit doesn't mean anything, it's just the brand. I'm not sure if any shade would work, per say. I guess you should probably buy a tube of light and a tube of dark and do a patch test on a fragment of the coveralls before you commit to the whole outfit.

It's normally in a very dark or shadowy environment, so its hrd to be positive, but I've always perceived it as a dark blue color. Come to think of it, all of the Myers costumes and figures I've come across have dark blue coveralls, so I'm sticking with that.

Perhaps your TV needs to have the color or brightness settings adjusted.

I think in part 6 they were gray. I'm not for sure though I haven't seen it in awhile but I think I recall them not being blue.

The others they were obviously blue though.

His coveralls are darkblue through out the series, but I'm pretty sure in some of the scenes in 6, the scenes they reshot, they used a different colour coverall that looks closer to gray.

When the first film was made, I doubt they put alot of thought into the overalls. I imagine they went to a store and bought a set of Dickies, or maybe even Carhartts. Dark blue would be my guess. If you buy a dark blue overall, just wash the crap out of it, it'll fade and wont look so off-the rack new. I have some overalls that I wear in the winter that were really dark blue when I got em, but over the years they've faded quite a bit, if I could post a pic I'd show ya.

They were blue when he got them. Over the sequels if they turned black I'm sure you can explain it away by saying he did not wash his clothes much.

1= dark blue (possibly grey because everything looks dark blue because of the cinematography)
2= Dark grey (hard to tell because of the nighttime shooting)
4= Dark grey (look at the overalls when Myers steals them in broad daylight)
5= Black
6= Grey (Myers overalls are the same color no matter who's playing him, Wilbur or the other guy)
7= Grey
8= Grey

Dark blue.
I always thought it was pretty consistant.
From the beginning in the day light scenes in part 1 they looked dark blue.
The only time they looked different was in the very dark scenes where they looked black and in the ending of part 6. They seemed to be dark blue through most of that movie and then were more of a grey in the reshoots.

This is correct. The color of the original coveralls was "spruce green".
