I approciate ansewr. But I think thedentedhelmet community misunderstand what i mean.
What i means i just wanna see fabric through photo(jpeg file or any image file) I don't have to sse real sample.
i'm afraid of copy by china or korea, too.
i'm mania like you and them. I'd like to attend this honored project in my country. And i wanna attend only me.
So you need not worried about that i'll copy your item. I'll never do that.
I'm gonna buy 5 yard. Of course I'll pay via paypal.
I'd like to pay via USPS Global Priorty Mail or USPS Global Express mail.
Can i decide by myself about shipping cost and shipping way?
Also when you send your item can you wrap with box. i don't wanna paper bag.
because it's not save for item. If you use paper bag item is likely to damaged.
And can you tell me that i should pay added shipping cost? How much?
At last i wondering about your order notice.
If i buy 5 yard How much should i pay fee? I should pay just only $3?
And i wndering onething. what is this "PM"? I don't get it.
yer u should only pay $3 extra as this is to cover paypals fee for sending money (i think)
PM stands for "private message"; it's basically like e-mail on a forum. Click on Kwally's name, a drop-down menu will appear. Choose "Send private message to..." and write your message.Quote:
And i wndering onething. what is this "PM"? I don't get it.
Hope that's helpful. I also hope Kwally has time to check his PMs. I won't have any money for a few weeks, so hopefully he can set something aside for me that I can pay for later.
CHECK UR PM BOX PLAISE
Okay, I have had a lot of questions concerning the brand of the pants I used for my Joker...
So, for anyone still wondering...
I am sorry, but I do not know the brand. The pants only had one tag and it said 100% wool. They were bought at Macy's and they were originally light grey with white pinstripes.
Any of you on this thread know that if I had that information that I would be glad to share it with all of you.
As for the dying instructions... I have posted them on one of the other pages of this thread.
I wish everyone the best of luck and I am always glad to help... :cheers
P.S. Thanks to everyone for checking out my auctions and for all the wonderful comments about my costume... :cheers
Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha!!! :lol
Thanks so much klohse!
Oh! Yes the vest is 100% custom...
No labels... ;)
I think I said in a much earlier post that the back was original a dress shirt that I dyed to make the right color. The front was originally a light tan denim material that I also custom dyed using Rit Kelly Green and a little Rit Golden Yellow. The pattern for the vest is the one listed earlier on this thread by myself and LSFU, with a few slight modifications...
Oh! Even though you cannot see it in the photos, I have the 1944 Mercury Wing Head Dime as the "Missing/Unbuttoned" button...
It's the little things that make me smile :D
Well, those of us up here in NE TX got caught in IKE's path yesterday and I lost power about 3PM CDT yesterday. STILL no power, I'm on my sister's Mac right now and have just discovered to my horror that the suspenders' auctions have ended. I FULLY intended to win the 2nd set that went for $41.
Hey Ghostsoldier--how you coming with making your suspenders??
I really need some help with this suspender thing--if anybody can make me a pair, I'd be happy to pay them a reasonable sum.
Otherwise, this Joker will be suspenderless on Halloween--and I KNOW none of you want that!!
guys, I'm going set the last day for ordering the fabric on Wednesday. The reason being...not even half of the people who said they wanted fabric have ordered. I can't print the 450 yds when only 200 has been orders. Soooo I'm going to adjust the yardage to around 300 unless we get a lot of people buying by Wednesday. Sorry if it is taking me a while to respond to pms...I just found out I have gluten intolerance...(pretty much can't eat any grains wheat barley oats etc) soooo the military is trying to find a reason why they shouldn't kick me out and it isn't looking good...but this is still going to be a success!!!
Do we need to start PMing all of those that haven't ordered yet?
Come on guys! It is the highest quality shirt material for the absolutely cheapest price! What more can anyone ask for???
Im still interested i just haven't got the money right know dont get paid until 22nd
Sorry to hear that, bro...that's the military for ya, tho...it's just big business, like everything else in the world. Hope it works out, man.
As far as adjusting the fabric order: What are the ramifications (from the print company) for making a smaller order? Are they gonna want to increase the cost to make up the deficit in order volume, to cover the cost of tooling a limited run?
I hope not but I'm going to talk to the guy today about it. It shouldn't be a big problem as we are only using one color and a lightweight fabric. I'll let you all know.
Order sent for 3 yards.
Hey guys, if anyone is still looking for suspenders:
Scroll down (second to last) and they have the all white/white diamond (which is the same exact style), you just have to color in the diamonds yourself with a fabric marker.
I'll be sending my MO for my 4 yards here today or tomorro. :)
Despite the fact that I do feel bad for Kwally with all these people bailing on him, it is a bit of a relief to know now that I didn't get my order in too late. I was afraid there'd be a mad dash to the order thread, and that there was no way I'd get mine before Halloween.
I propose a toast to everyone who helped make this possible, and everyone who supported Kwally on this whole thing, and also gave the rest of us some great tips for other parts of the costume.
All it takes is a little... push.
Hopefully the price per yard won't go up, as it was already more than what I should have spent, but I'm a man of my word, unlike some of the others who aren't going through with their orders... :doh
I hope everything turns out for you okay, Kwally! :cheers
can a size SMALL shirt be made from 2 yards? i definitely will send the payment out right now if it can. 2 yards by 63" sounds like enough fabric to me but i don't wanna dish out an extra 26 for another yard if i'm only gonna use scraps of that extra yard.
thanks in advance guys.
Yes we found these braces a week or so ago. About $60 USD once you've paid for shipping. That's probably too rich for THIS Joker's blood. Harley Quinn will have my A#@ if I spend too much more $ on this costume!!! She's pretty PO'd already at my $50 knife!!!
Say guys and gals…back to this button deal. I saw the film again this weekend (or about 2/3 of it until IKE struck and we lost power in the theater!) and I think the buttons are sort of a blue pearlescent color. If someone has a high rez pic that shows different, no problem, but I specifically watched for a button color this time and I'm pretty sure that during the interrogation scene, you could see a bluish button on the shirt at the collar.
BTW, I watched CLOSELY for sight of the braces during the film and never actually saw them once. You CAN see the back of Ledger's pants being pulled up after he's been flipped onto the table, which suggests braces are being worn, but again, I don't think they ever actually get any screen time.
All of this of course, to rationalize my NOT having braces because I missed Sinister's auction!!! :D
I'm not really a regular here (yet) but I put in an order for the fabric and felt like giving back so here is a tip on the pants. Sarah Jessica Parker has her own clothing line called "Bitten" and they have a pair of pants that is a dark purple with white pinstripes. I recommend getting them a couple inches longer than neccessary because they cuff at the bottom but with a slight hemming they fit the bill nicely. Running them through a wash a few times also help to lighten the fabric a little.
Oh and concering the suspenders: If you want the perfect suspenders I'd look for ones with button fastening and not clips. Because to a suit you usually wear those with buttons if you want to follow certain dress codes. Since the joker wears a crombie coat (that's the usual form of a city coat you wear over a suit. One of the details that define a crombie is the hidden button-facing on the front. So if you're still looking for a coat, maybe you best go with the word crombie if you want to dye a coat. Maybe you'll also find one in purple) suit jacket, vest, pocket watch and all those little details, he definately has suspenders with button fastening in my opinion. But that's just for the die hards out there ;)
congrats sinister $200 odd for his suspenders LOL!!
As for my auctions, I am truly sorry you missed out klohse. I hope the storm hasn't done too much to you and yours... Take care.
And I would like to send a great big thank you to all that were able to buy my left over inventory of personal items...
I really hope that if someone is able to pay that kind of money for a pair of suspenders (braces), that we here on this thread can put up the little bit of cash for a really awesome shirt!!!
After all that we have been through to get this done right...
Come on guys! Support the effort! :cheering:cheering:cheering
Oh yes, and I sent in payment for six yards.
If you can sew it is maybe worth a try to get a pattern and do it yourself. But I can imagine such a piece of garment is one of the most difficult works in tailoring.
Still hope I could help a little :)
sorry sin LOl changed it know i was gunna say the jokers braves do get screen time although very little of it yes
me either.....yet :-P
TODAY's THE DAY!! Our fabric order goes in today!!! HOORAY for KWALLY!!!
Alright, I know the subject of Sinister's shoes has been brought up before, but so far it hasn't been asked; what are they called? I know they're from Aldo, but do they have a specific model name? I found a pair that looks really similar, and I'm wondering if these are the ones.
If not, could you maybe direct me to the correct ones?
Also, since an important part of this board seems to be coming to a consensus on the exact color of his outfit, I have to open the floor for one important question. Are the Joker's shoes black or brown? In that one promotional shot with him sitting on the bench in the jail cell, they do look really brown (as well as in some other screencaps). However, in the shots of the costumes on public display, and especially in the promotional "posing" shots of Heath on a white-background photo set, they do kind of look black, or at the very least, an EXTREMELY dark brown. So, what's everyone else's opinion?
Yes, those are the exact same shoes I started with from ALDO. The are the Werwulf in dark brown. They are also cheaper than what I originally paid! Shoot! After the sand paper treatment they will look just like my finished shoes.
As for the color of the Joker's shoes in the movie. They are certainly a brown suede like material. Lighting does effect the look in everyshot, but they are brown...
Kwally, I sure hope this is your auction...
Some tool is selling the pattern that the good people on this forum worked hard to get...I wonder if that is a violation of eBay's policy and Pinder or Sereiana could get the auction removed.
Also, does this mean you're going to forgo trying to find the blazer and overcoat?
So, Sin... I totally dig the shoes, yet again.
I have contemplated posting about the shoe color a few times, glad someone else did first, so it didn't seem like I was nitpicking your ****** outfit. I was thinking maybe is there a black powder you could put on the shoes....sort of like shoe polish? Maybe soot. Like hair peppering for shoes!
Man! I can't believe someone is out there ripping off the hard work that was done by the folks here. Geez! >:
[quote=grbspltt;368107]Kwally, I sure hope this is your auction...
Hey just FYI TDH rules state you cannot post an ebay thread that does not belong to you. You can only post a pic of the item, if you so choose.
It may be good to delete that link from your posts, to keep others from following it.
That shirt isn't ripping anyone off, Kwally doesn't even have the material yet..
Yes but that IS ripping off pinders pattern - interestingly I think that they just used the picture because their fabric sample pic looks COMPLETELY DIFFERENT.
I wanna buy some of this fabric and have it shipped over to the U.K
will you be able to do this, i need it A.S.A.P
the shirt isn't actually printed on, looks like its been traced on the shirt with fabric pen in ALOT of detail i still wouldn't pay for it, my idea is working out pretty well for me since i didn't get in on the order in time :(
I will be sure to post pictures once the shirt is finished. I plan on taking some on Halloween in my full get up...
Because of time and financial restraints, I will have everything but the blazer and overcoat in time for Halloween.
However, I do plan on finishing all of this costume at a later date...
Thanks to all of you for the kind words about my costume. It is good to know that all the hard work is paying off...
Can anyone tell me if i can buy this fabric with the print and have it shipped over to the uk?
Since the last day of ordering was yesterday, the only possibility for you to get some fabric is if someone has some fabric left and can give it to you. But that would definately not happen in time for halloween.
well the issue is that that pattern doesnt match the fabric print and pinder, what do you mean exactly; I thought the vector is what ended up used? or did you do a final illustrator pattern after the fact?
Two weeks ago a seller who I believe lurks on this board and the SHH board got a link of one of my auctions, where he proceeded to copy my webpage html code I created, and downloaded all my pictures. Later he listed everything I had listed under his seller name with my webpage and pictures, I almost had a heart attack!
Ebay cancelled his auctions 30 times and he kept relisting. It kicks me to see all his auctions with my html design.
This week unibody copied pics from the Singapore seller's auctions and listed their items, he is listing and selling items with no actual pics. Again ebay doesn't do anything about if the seller is making money.
Ebay sucks sometimes!
This pattern/shirt looks a lot like the pattern that was taken a while ago and was being sold as iron-on sheets.
Hey athens isnt far from danielsville for some armor ill go rough this guy up a bit if he stole your work...If your the seller than man do i feel awkward
I just don't undertand the mentality of taking it without asking...all the person had to do, in my case, was just ask, and I would have agreed...:?
The Vero thing is a double side sword. They kept cancelling his auctions, but he kept relisting, later he created fake ids and bid on my items and won a couple. So retaliation is what I fear most. He knows my auctions and keep selling whatever I list, he took from me several items, selling them with my pics and much cheaper than me.
If you can get his address (and there are ways), I'd send him a box of dog-dookie anyway!:)
as i said in my post (that no one seemed to read) the guy has put a pic up of the shirt/fabric hes selling its not actually pinders design so to speak
it looks like hes printed it off & very accurately traced it to the fabric with a fine line fabric marker
LMFAO he says that your not paying for a dress shirt drawn on but if you look at the pic hes put up of "his" shirt, looks pretty drawn on to me
Gotta love the Zug
I've gotten to where I HATE "feepay". They charge you out the wazoo for listings then, take a percentage of what you sell the item for and THEN gig you again via paypal and take part of the payment!! I think their really owned by the government!! A few weeks back, I discoved the Socks Rock information--may have been here on TDH---and bought a dozen pair of socks to sell on ebay. I covered my cost per pair, added a few bucks and covered my S&H expenses, and sold the socks for less than anyone else on ebay. Some cretean bids on 3 pair of socks, doesn't pay for them and THEN, on the SAME DAY he wins the auction, leaves me negative feedback about the "poor quality" of the socks!! That was over a month ago. Ebay has done NOTHING about this to date, despite my filing an unpaid item claim and reporting the abusive feedback to their poor excuse for "customer service".
Speaking of "feepay", in case you Jokers haven't noticed, there are a couple more suspenders auctions up right now. Both sellers have bought the white braces and colored the diamonds with a fabric marker. They look GOOD, but the straps are too white. It's likely not be possible to dye the suspenders and get them the right shade of grey and then color the diamonds green.
I think since Sinister is not going to bother trying to find a blazer and crombie, he should have PLENTY of time to whip out a few more pair of braces for us non-braced Jokers!! OH HO HA HA HA HO HE HA HA HA! :D
Seriously, I wish I could. Unfortunately, I am swamped by college classes right now and have had very little time to even finish my own stuff. That is why I am not attempting the blazer and overcoat right now...
But thanks for the good chuckle... :lol
Hey everyone, I already posted this in the "joker findings" thread, but just in case some of you suspender-less jokers didn't know...I emailed "Bromleys" about their joker-esque white suspenders asking if they were planning to restock size medium in white and I got this response:
Thank you for your email. The new stock of white elastic diamond braces will be in stock early Oct also Green & Black diamond
He added an attachment photo of the Joker's braces as a reference! (It's the hi-res close up!)
....I'm not sure if these will be in time for halloween but I'm assuming yes, considering they would make a killing! By the way these are the button on style(!):cheering
thats good to know im still gunna customize my own pari ready for halloween ^^
Danae, thanks for the great news! I'm starting to get REALLY excited for next month. We're going to have 100% accurate shirts, socks (Tabio) and now the braces. Reminds me, has anyone heard back from Turnbull and Asser yet? Money's super tight right now, but Lord knows I'd drop 175 big ones in a NY second to own the same tie Heath wore.
It's the season of miracles!
........when you want to start taking things a little more seriously.
Ok, I'm sorry I couldn't resist that.
This IS great news!! I may be single after all of this, but I'm going to have one spiffy set of Joker duds!!:D
they are coming with a green diamond on black brace i think those will be the most accurate
i do agree with you on the rediculous price for the braces on ebay , and i can say that the closer halloween comes the worse the prices will get i saw at least 50% mark up on the scars alone from 2 weeks ago, its just out of hand, but when theres a huge market for something people must cash in, but hell if it doesnt matter to you wait until november 1st and watch prices go back to normal lol gauranteed. my lady is so pissed at me as it is for spending money and so much time on this project , i failed to tell her about ordering the 26$ a yard fabric too (oops) but when it comes between us it was 4$ a yard on sale lol...... i love this joker stuff
Ok, I guess everyone's thinking it, and though I hate to be the one who says it, at the risk of sounding like a whiner... any news on when the fabric ships?
btw, the joker braces are no longer on the website http://www.classicwardrobe.co.uk/-/P.../-/Braces.aspx
OK Jokers! My wig arrived yesterday. Going to the cosmetology school here on campus to have it cut and styled a bit. It's actually a bit darker than the photos show--the flash is bleaching the color some.
I MAY even let the cosmo girls color it. Anybody done any coloring that their proud of?? SO many products/shades of green out there. Wondering if anyone has achieved the wonderful pond scum green that we're looking for??
BTW--these aren't MY pics. They are photos the ebay seller I bought the wig from used. Just posting them here FYI.
why didnt you just get one of the joker wigs on ebay?
As for the costume, anyone have recommendations on the fabric for the back of the vest? I've got three different types, but none are really right on...one would really even probably be better for the pants if it were a thicker material.
Ordered the ALDOs today but not entirely sure I'm going to scuff them. I do intend on wearing all but the makeup to my company Christmas party this year. Well, I haven't fully decided on the makeup... :D
(this might've been posted before)
hey guys, for a pretty cheap alternative, hot topic has some alright duds
what i like most is the tripp hexagonal shirt, and while it's not 100% screen accurate, it's not bad for about 30 bucks, especially when 1 yard of the screen accurate fabric is already $26. i'm planning on using this tripp shirt to just parties and stuff, cuz y'know, it is a nice shirt. you can use a promo code GHTBD91W for bdays in sept, just make sure when you sign up you say your bday is in sept. everything else isn't too bad for the price either; while nothing is 100% screen accurate, at least it looks a little better than those cheaply made costumes by those costume companies that sell for $60
i figure if im going to do the joker as he should be then im going to do it as close as possible to the screen version and not waste my time/money on that awful mess, that may be fine for the kids. the only cool thing about it is that you will get your shirt before i do lol. "its not about the money, its about sending a message"
FYI, just discovered THIS post on the Tabio (sock) website:
Joker Socks by Tabio (Pre-Order)
We are now delighted to confirm for you that our Joker socks will be in stock on Monday the 29th September!! If you already have placed your pre-order, your item(s) will be dispatched within a few days from then.
That puts a SMILE ON MY FACE!
Has anybody heard from Kwally?
Just wondering the status of our order....
That puts us all one week into the time frame he gave us.
He said it would take three weeks for printing of the material.
I am guessing that he is keeping low key and getting things done.
I am sure we will hear more as it gets closer to October 8, 2008.
"Because it's all part of the plan." :D
*Doing Pee Pee Dance* I can't wait... :lol:cheering:drool
yeah i'd really like at least a confirmation to put my mind at ease that he recieved our payments
What shirt pattern is everyone planning on using?? Im personally thinking of the Simplicity 4760.
I found that a while back and thought I would try it.
I'm assuming it is Simplicity 7030.
Just got my Gorify wig, thing is AMAZING. Really realistic, and it actually smelled like shampoo out of the box. Any news on the suspenders?
got my chain & suspenders sorted ^^
not SA but they'll be fine
