I am going to attend in Cosplay at a Horror Convention soon. I want to go as the Novelization Version of Jack Torrance, with the mallet instead of the ax. But I need to know some other details cause I want to be precise. So my question is the description of Jack's physical appearance when he goes mad trying to kill everyone.

1. Is Jack dressed in a red plaid wool shirt?

2. Is he also wearing blue jeans with tan mountain boots?

3. What injuries does he have?

4. Is he limping?

I repeat: I'm asking about the book version, NOT the Kubrick movie version.

I don't have enough time to read all of the novel, I already know of the spoilers. If someone could please tell me, it would help out a lot, cause I love to go all out in cosplay.

No need to read the whole book, if you're going for final scene look. Just pick up the novel and turn to the last few chapters. Think of it as research.

What's the name of the chapter I start with?
...I found some things that might help.....his right hand slashed by a razor, he battered his own face and skull with the roque mallet and the aforementioned knife in the back.....he was referred to as something less than human by the end of the novel, so let your imagination run wild....

1. wipe your mouth with a rag
2. carry around a bottle of excedrine
3. yell, "You're gonna take your medicine!"
4. pretend to talk to people that no one else can see.
