    I figured I'd inquire with pinder to see if it was something glaring. It's not, actually. At this point the only tweak I could even make is to the oriental pattern. The other bits are so mired in the design itself that I'd almost have to take it back to scratch to fix it - and honestly I DONT have that in me. Doing this and feeling like I wasnt getting it done fast enough almost made me have a minor breakdown on thursday night (every little thing kept protesting and not doing what I told it to or needed to be repaired somehow).

    I could tell by some of your posts you were stressed as hell man just want you to be ok.! I know we have some hardcore guys here who demand perfection, but I was extremely happy with the design a few drafts ago. Want to keep you healthy, we might need you for the next joker project!

    I think it only looks that way because the blue of the print is "mixing" optically with the white of the shirt in far away shots like that. That's in addition to the blue filter they seem to have used on that scene.. printing on white is a good compromise (well, not a compromise, but it works out ). If you want it blue, dye it.

    Pinder's right, i think what a lot of people are forgetting is that the screen shots are relatively small, so a pattern like this would create the illusion that the shirt is blue, kinda like using half tones.

    to get the idea, try standing a few feet away from your screen with Pinders and Sereinas pattern up, i'll bet the white starts to look blue to y'all at some point, and if you could get up close to that shirt, then you'd see the white on it where you're thinking you're seeing blue!

    this all looks kewl as!

    May I add that i tried a similar pattern with iron on transfers on both a white and lavender fabric and the white is the winner, when i looked at it from a distance the material appeared blue like what you see in the photos. On the lavender the pattern blended in and was less distinct.

    and yes dye would be very simple to adjust the color if you want

    *sigh* I imagine that once Kwally is ready he will post a new forum with a small FAQ at the beginning containing this info - or I'd be happy to as well.

    ct joker - I believe you were actually involved in the base color discussion the first time around. You've mentioned before that you think it needs to be duller. Please trust that the properties of fabric and the fact that most of the patterns on the shirt are optical illusions should give you the result you're looking for. And they are right, it will be cotton; if all else fails dye it ever so slightly blue. It most definately a white base, though.
    The other thing to keep in mind is that the Joker costume is weathered so that it looks lived in and worn. The area around the collar shows lots of evidence of sweat stains and is generally a bit dingier than it would normally be.

    To those reading, I wanna stress that the main reason I post these pics is to show the details of the shirt, and not to cause any consternation or questioning of the current fabric project...as I have said before, I'm good with the white cotton background, and if not, I'll dye it later.......

    ....the main thing about these pics (and the one above) is to notice the shape of the collar: it appears to be slightly pointed...

    ...and the cuffs are rounded on the ends...



    Details for the SA anal!

    That first pic is of someone's costume.. I don't know if you were using it as reference or example, but yeah.. that's a Zazzle tie. :o I think the collar on that shirt is too small anyways.

    You're correct, tick...good eye! That's the problem with having too many reference pics on my PC...I get 'em mixed up sometimes!:o

    I corrected it, and posted the one I was originally trying to do!

    Speaking of ties....has anyone done a good zazzle take-off on the Turnbull tie design? Less than 175 bucks, that is?

    I think your'e right, ct....I'm still looking for a good pic of the back, but it looks to be a blue silk/satin with lighter, silverish stripes....this is the best i have so far...



    ....and thanks for the tie link!

    The actual material is a satin or silk that is almost the same shade of blue/purple as the pattern on the shirt.

    The stripes are actually broken (dashed) pinstripes that are a slightly lighter shade of the base color. the best picture I have found is in the Art of The Dark Knight and that wasn't much.

    It is certainly a custom print, just like the shirt.

    Unable to find the exact material, or anything remotely close, I settled on this for the back of my vest... (details below)



    Originally, a Donald Trump brand men's extra large dress shirt that was a pale blue. I wear a men's small, so one shirt was enough to make the back of the vest, the lining, and pocket lining. I am saving the shirt buttons to use on my hexagon shirt...

    It is 100% cotton, but has that satin shine to it. The pinstripes are a weave in the material, so it dyes really well.

    I used Navy Blue Rit Dye for a very quick 5 minute dip. It combines with the original color of the shirt to make a very close match to the actual material. The closest that I have found. (Photo above uses a flash)

    Once again, I hope anything I post about my own costume has helped others in any way...

    It looks to me like the stripes are metallic, or at least more shiny than the fabric.. in that last photo, they're darker than the main fabric on the left, and lighter than the main fabric to the right. If they weren't metallic/very shiny, they wouldn't do that.

    Also, check this out (it's big, click the thumbnail):


    Sinister beat me to it, but yeah, lighter broken pinstripes on a satin blue..
