    Hrm, I was really hoping to contribute something to the group other than a paypal account, but all the research material I've come across has been linked here (including the fabled suspenders) and it would be redundant to repost.
    I do not recall anyone mentioning a knife, however.

    Here's the one I got, it's not screen accurate unfortunately but it'll do, plus I never get tired of springing it =)

    Alright, after talking briefly with Kwally89 about adjustments I present Version 3.0.


    What I refer to as the "Ninja Star" pattern which Seven brought up in post #191 has been adjusted yet again to include the correct number of "stars". Not sure how I screwed that up twice before.

    The background has been made white, and the rest has a bit more blue in it.

    Thoughts?

    Pinder - that is DEFINATELY much closer in terms of coloration -
    I wanted to ask if that is a vector or not?
    A lot of printers will use vectors to preserve the highest quality - if you need that transfered into vector, I can offer my services for that.

    Pinder-

    First, I would like to say thanks to you for all your hard work and crossed eyes...

    Second, I think that this looks wonderful.
    Hopefully, now that the background is white, this will put to rest the arguments about the base material color. Stare at it for just a little bit and the illusion is that the white background looks like a very light shade of lavander.

    Last, I think the pattern color is as close as possible without having held the real thing in our collective hands.

    Thanks again to all that have put effort into this project in order to give us all the best Joker shirts around!

    I made the image in Photoshop 7, so I have the original with all the different layers saved as a *.PSD file. Obviously the images I'm hosting on my photobucket are all *.JPG's. I didn't get too far into what all vector images are and how to save them in my Graphic Design class back in High School, so I'm about clueless there.

    I was talking to a on the side Graphic Designer friend of mine who said to maybe try saving the original *.PSD as a *.EPS or *.PDF file. But then I still wouldn't know if that would be correct. Anyone know? I could always just e-mail you the original file if I can't get it to work.

    And thanks to everyone for the compliments! It means a lot to my super anal engineering side.

    This is where I got mine...

    Once I hear a price, I will tell the yardage.

    How many yards would it take to make 2 large shirts?

    The best reference for the blazer under the coat is the scene where the mob bosses are meeting, and the Joker opens his coat to show the grenades. You can REALLY see it nicely! I didn't study it too much, but it is obviously a blue and it seems to have black stiching blended in to darken it.

    I tried to convert it to a vector a couple days ago, Pinder. It smoothed the edges so much that the stars turned into messed up boxes.

    For the shoes guys grab the Soho Lab Greene-Road shoes for 60 bucks..pretty close the best you'll find for the price. I've found a few shoes even closer but they range from 250-300 bucks. I Think someone mentioned this before in the thread..

    I wanted to pose a question to the group. Does anyone have any reference material concerning the blue suitcoat that we never clearly see in the movie?
    Those pics I posted on the last page are the best references I have for the coat....

    Nice blade! I got mine a couple weeks ago right before most sites jacked up the price...whew!!! I just finished a REALLY sweet Joker tribute shadow box last night! The back is all the Gotham Times papers (one I created myself with a Joker headline), Joker dollar, Uncle Sam Jokerized, 6 Joker cards weathered and burnt, my Joker knife, and the evidence bag from Batman Begins...it is pretty sweet! I'll post some pics tonight.

    NOW THE MOMENT YOU'VE ALL BEEN WAITING FOR.....I HAVE A PRICE QUOTE!!!! Que the music!!!! A little drum roll please...and here...we...GO! Hahah! Anyways, my rough estimate plus a couple dollars per yard for shipping is going to be about $34-$35 a yard...now, I'm VERY satisfied with that price!!! It is also going to be on a 65-35 poly cotton blend! I'm going to call my sales rep tonight to go over the actual design and emphasize that it all must line up. I hope that doesn't jack up the price! NOW WE NEED THE FINAL DESIGN IN VECTOR!!! Enjoy my friends!

    this is my take on the coloring kind of gives it a darker shade..... and when its printed the ink will bleed a lil and give the base color and even more darker shade i feel...but who knows i think that lavender/purple color is just to light for this design maybe its just me?

    I've been trying to think of things to give out at Halloween too, and "Here's my card." was one of them. I thought about going to the Goodwill and buying their decks of cards, if they had any, just pulling the jokers out, and giving those out.
