    Oh, and Nathair, careful with the Rubies' Joker digs
    I think you read that wrong...That was a little bit of ripping on the Rubies one. I'm custom tailoring the coat and vest, trying to buy the pants like Sinister did, and skipping the sport coat (since it will still be hot here and the coat will cover most).

    I've already planned out exactly how I'll be laughing at those type of costumes.

    No offense taken. Are you gonna give them the business Joker gave his goon after getting electrocuted by Batman's mask? I LOVE that scene!!

    Oh and one more thing:

    The swatch I have isn't of the joker print guys! It was a swatch of the material and a VERY intricate pattern that the company printed. I should be getting a swatch of the joker print soon. I'm hoping to have this to all of you asap. Remember: It takes 3 weeks for production. I will urge my fabric rep to get it done asap!!!

    Hello everyone! I've been watching this forum for almost 2 weeks now, and finally joined to be part of the fun! I wanna thank a lot of you - you've given me so many good ideas for this costume (dying pants, suspenders, etc). I used to be such a hard-core costumer and have slowly been giving up, and I stumbled on this forum while trying to find some cheap way to do his shirt when I realized what I was doing. I'd forgotten how satisfying it is to get these costumes done right. I instantly realized that I used to spend easily $300 on a costume to have every detail right, and here I was trying to keep this under $50 (college did this to me!!!). I was rather ashamed of myself. So I went out of my way and decided now that I finally got a paypal account I'm going to put it to good use! So I'll let ya'll know how I'm approaching this costume.

    Head: I have natural blonde hair, and if I don't wash it for about 2 weeks it actually turns black/green just like the jokers. That part of the movie is NOT exaggerated. BUT I'm not doing that. I have a friend who used to dress as Severus Snape quite often - she has a formula for greasy hair. First off my hair will be the EXACT LENGTH as his by the end of october (if not a bit shorter). I'll braid it all (lol dread-like) and sleep like that thurs evening. Friday (halloween) I'll spray down my hair in PAM or just vegetable oil it up and take out the braids. TA-DAA I have perfect Joker hair.
    Make-up: Fairly simple. I bought Faux Skin to make the scars, spirit gum to hold it down, and latex to blend and more stick-age, my friend already had the white theatre make-up, black lipstick smears and looks best for his eyes but don't forget the black eye-liner first to get in real close to the eyeballs, and you need 2 shades of red for his smile (the bright red for the main smile and a darker shade for his upper lip). As a girl I already own this lipstickz. And as a bonus, I bought some yellow tooth decay paint for my teeth (hell yeah!)
    Clothes: This will just be in one grouping because I haven't been able to start sewing yet. I bought the suspenders and stretchy print ons for it already (transfers just got here today). I bought white pinstriped material for his pants (the pinstripe is metallic so it wont dye and they were the perfect distance apart) and Blue and Red dye so I can create my own purple. His socks are in the mail. A friend from work is donating his shoes for me to sandpaper and destroy. I have the blue satin and green front for his vest (buying pattern soon) and the purple and orange/red lining for his trench coat. I found the PERFECT purple-gray suit jacket at Good Will. I've found perfect gloves for him but hell for me if I tell you until I've secured them for myself! lol His tie I'm still working on (I really don't want to resort to the zazzle tie). His shirt I've recieved about 5 quotes on all from ****** fanmade stuff the textile mills offering digital printing. Textiles won't go lower than $270 for about 3 yards (not including $30 shipping) and hack-jobs have murdered his awesome shirt. So I've concluded I'm going to cheat on this one thing. I have an old white button-up shirt I don't wear much anymore. I'm going to very carefully measure out and buy transfers. Through some awesome photoshop skills I've secured a swatch I can print and I'm just going to cover the exposed areas (collar/sleeves and some extra). I'll seam rip the shirt into flat pieces and then sew it up again later. I won't shirk the shirt though (haha) I'm buying the best iron-ons available to ensure I don't crinkle crack and flake.

    If anyone has any tips, suggestions, or know if I can buy a similar tie of his at Dillards or JC Penny or something (as often as I buy ties JOKE) PLEASE feel free to let me know.

    Here's some photos of my make-up test. I'm wearing the coat from good will, but the brown shirt underneath was the shirt I'd worn to work. XD so just... ignore that. The knife was a handmade one made by my dad that was just sitting in our basement.


    This is a good picture of my hair (the light really shows it - blah!) My hair is naturally a bit wavy/curly. So That's just how it always looks. I honestly tried to mess it up and failed. D:

    Sorry its blurry (these were all taken via camera phone). But the light/perspective really lets you see the lumps of scar tissue around my mouth. I'll definately blue the make-up more next time, this is too definate.
    Last pic I swear:

    No coat. I'm removing the latex and faux skin. This is just to let you know what you have to look forward to if you use this method. It hurt LIKE HELL. I personally don't mind so much, but just an FYI.

    Feed back would be AWESOME

    everything looks pretty cool, although i think you should consider doing more than one layer or making your faux skin thicker to give your scars more depth i cant recall how many times this has been said but Rigid Collodion is one f the best things out their for scarring...

    I'm glad I found this thread a few weeks ago, my fabric search has been futile in terms of production. Now after the fabric arrives all I have left is to paint my gloves and order my blazer. Thanks again for the fabric and organizing this!

    ok guys I just wanna clear up some confusion...there a no longer going to be a post halloween run because that whole deal was with a different company. If you are truly interested but can't pay right now I totally understand. Just pm me to reserve your fabric so I can take note of it. I'm going to let this run for at least a week and a half or until 400 yards have been spoken for. I appreciate you guys answering some questions for the newbies because I really get sick of typing on his iPhone!!

    Thanks. I love costuming but as I got older I had more priorities and costuming got pushed further and further back because it was only a hobby. This costume sort of woke me up and now I'm happily MAKING time for this!

    *nod* I think your right. I only had one thing of the faux skin and didn't want to use too much on a test. But you definately have a point with the depth. Especially since it'll be halloween NIGHT, so I want to details to stand out (like how theatre make-up is approached).

    I believe we tried that and it didn't work the same. To tough to take care of and get right. Plus it looks unnatural and makes the shirt stiff

    With the exception of the stand-in shirt (Singapore),
    This is my Halloween costume...







    After Halloween, I plan on finish it off with the jacket and coat so I can use it for conventions and future Halloweens...

    Hey Sinister the vest is my favorite part of your costume. Both the green front and I really dig the back great choice on the fabric. Everything else looks great as well, but the vest trumps everything but the Hex shirt as to how essential to the look it is. bad vest=lame Joker.

    can you dye 60% Wool + 40%Terylene

    and if this item were dark navy, could you add red dye to give it a purple hue. i know you cant really make dark lighter, but would red just change the colour?

    cuz his pants have a navt tint to them dont they...
