    Question looking for a really good JOKER costume .. any ideas ??

    hey guys.. somethinī diffrent this time

    since my girlfriendīs seen the HARLEY QUINN-version from the ARKHAM ASYLUM-game, she knows what she wants to be for the upcoming (lol) halloween


    well, though Iīd like to have a really cool -suit til then, I decided to give his most evil villain a chance!
    as you can imagine, I donīt want to go the Heath Ledger-way (he was awesome on that part, as was his make-up and outfit )..
    instead Iīd try a mix between the CARTOON and - of course - the COMICAL version, plus a few adds from the game also.

    that beeinī said, I not only have to check a really cool - and also freaky - tuxedo,
    Iīll also need some latex pieces I can add to my preīīy face

    that means
    a) a big, long nose (mine isnīt THAT big.. ha ha ha)
    b) a long and edgy chin
    c) the GRIN (remember, more cartoony than scar(!)y) and (maybe, not neccessary)
    d) a piece to raise my eyebrows and to give the skull a more boney kind of structure (similar to some of the zombie pieces)

    yeah, a full-head mask would be easier.. but thatīs only half of the fun

    so, if anybody knows anything.. please donīt hesitate to answer
    This.. is God!

    This was my last costume... i cant find any pics of my full costume but it was hand made by my fiancee. (That is not my fiancee btw lol)

    It would look a shit load betther with prosthetics. but if theres none on hand shadowing can make features pop out alittle bit also dude.
    My jacket had long tails the green shirt was actualy a chicks shirt that was short sleave. We actualy cut offf the frilly sleaves and sewed them on to the inside of the jacket to make the shirt look like a long one. and it worked. i then got a knitted orange vest. and used black ribbon for the tie.

    Here is my Joker I did in 07. It was done with a latex prosthetic purchased through www.ScreamTeam.com. this was before the Heath Ledger Joker, so there weren't any costumes for sale, so my girl and her mom custom made everything from the vest, to the pants, to the jacket. The only thing that wasnt custom made was the orange shirt. Took 4.5 hours on the face, I stick with silicone masks for now lol.

    Two of my friends came last year to my party as the joker both really cool one came with a full deck of cards all jokers and a gun that when you fired it it said BANG in big letters. The other had some really cool make up stuff that stretched your skin??? Gave him a really evil grin

    I'm actually doing up a Joker costume soon. As cool as Heath was in The Dark Knight I personally can't stand seeing Heath Joker costumes, it's like The Dark Knight comes out and all of a sudden everyone is doing fucking Heath Joker costumes and all you can find on Google searches for the Joker are pictures of Heath Ledger. He's become one of those annoying pop culture icons like people wearing Che Guevara shirts despite having no idea who the Hell he is or chicks wearing those sequin Rolling Stones shirts with the lips on them when they haven't a clue who the band are....anyway rant over.

    I'll be basing my Joker on his appearance in The Killing Joke, The Man Who Laughs and the Arkahm Asylum and Arkham City games (since the games Joker was based on Killing Joke and Man Who Laughs anyway, just with slight differences) so it'll be a bit of a mixed one using my favourite elements from each one. There is a full Joker costume you can find on cosplay sites that has the basis of almost everything you need but it's pretty expensive, I'm a huge Batman/Joker fan though so I might decide to get it at some point. I've found most of the pieces I need for the costume so far though, I'm looking forward to doing a Joker since I have a good build for it being tall and ridiculously skinny.

    PS. Here's the suit I was talking about.
