Wow, thank you so much. Seeing as I'm able to do the makeup ON my boyfriend, it makes it easier than those of you who have to do it on themselves so I cant take all the credit, there (not to mention my boyfriend happens to somewhat resemble ledger). I will say, though that the trick with the scars is having a silicone MOLD as well. It's flexible enough to conform to the face easily and it keeps all of the detail of the original sculpt. Although silicone will adhere to itself dish soap prevents this very well. Also - on this take I didnt prepaint the scars to match the flesh fully before applying the makeup.
As for if thats what it really looked like... heres a couple more.
They are VERY slightly desaturated, I was trying to figure out what red I needed as most halloween makeup reds are orange based, when it should be a neutral or blue based red.
As for the basic makeup its JUST ****** cream makeup from the tube. You have to work with it fast, though. I DO prefer my creamier makeup for most other applications and will probably try several others before I settle on a final technique.

Guys, I'm getting pretty stressed about this as well because I REALLY REALLY want to get this to you on time!!! I also don't want to be stuck with a couple thousand dollars worth of fabric....but I'm a man of my word and if you want a refund, I'll gladly give it. I'm going to do my best to get this to you SOON. Right now, I'm sorry to say that my guarantees have gone out the window. The communication with my fabric contact was terrible for 3 weeks prior to printing. Unfortunately, if he would have called me back, I would have shipped the fabric last week! I'm pretty frustrated as well guys! Remember, I'm really not "selling" this to you. I just decided to organize it. My main objective was to get fabric for myself as well! Stay tuned guys! I hope to give you good news!
Is this all part of the plan?
But otherwise Spoonflower did and excellent job keeping me up to date with my fabric and had it printed and mailed to me in 2 days. It only took about 4 days from the moment they told me they were working on it for it to get to me, which was awesome. The material is thick (so I won't have to wear an undershirt of anything) but light (thank god because the frock coat is HEAVY).
Because the pattern I had wasn't completely screen accurate and because I don't need the fabric by halloween anymore and have months to make the second shirt I believe I may order the material from here (just an idea at this point) because Kwally, man, I don't want you to be stuck with all those spare yards of this expensive fabric either. $78 just seems a lot at this point though, so give me a little time to think it over.
Hey guys/gals, kinda been lurking around here for a while and decided to register here. Everyones costumes are looking great! So as I was reading through the thread I saw my name mentioned so I figured for those of you that have not seen my costume I would post up some pics.
AZ-spidey I tried to register on superherohype but I never got my approval email. I wanted to ask I see that you went with a pleat in the back of the coat. I have been bashing my head against the wall trying to figure it out but somehow think I wont know for absolutely sure how it all goes together until the DVD or blu-ray comes out in december...
Did you have a good picture of back reference that lead you to that decision? to me the back center panel greatly resembles a frock coat with a deep pleat.
THis is the first toy I've ever tried to make. Joker Sackboy!!!! http://i262.photobucket.com/albums/i.../joeker002.jpg
Very, Very Nice Job AZSpidey...
Killer costume Spidey! How did you go about making the shoes? Also, is the coat wool you dyed or found?
Thanks for all the kind words. For the shoes, if you want to know how I made them I have a build thread I started on a how to.
On the coat, I dont have any pleats in the back. I actually have 4.... yes I said 4 tails.
I used this pic here to determine the back.
I might be wrong, but I like the way my coat came out.
I'm not going anywhere. I'm in till the end and still holding out hope...
I would even pay extra for overnight delivery if it helps...
Thanks for keeping this alive for all us Jokers...
Keep it up Kody...

Dude... that looks AMAZING.
I have 2 questions - first does anyone have a good referance picture of the buttons on the sleeve of his frock coat? I know the front buttons are a dark purple, but they look like they might have a pad or fabric of some sort in the center:
I got the impression that the buttons on his sleeve were padded buttons (the far left one that's pink)
2nd question: I have no more reason than a hunch to think of this, but it makes sense if you think about the Joker's taste in clothes. Does anyone suppose he wears sock suspenders?
Also, I guess I have a 3rd quetsion here. When the Joker dresses as the nurse he's clearly wearing different socks - they are plaid and colorful. (I honestly thought those would be the socks that'd be famous, not the interrogation scene socks). Can anyone get a high-rez shot of those socks? It'd be super helpful. Thank you!
He obviously dosnt wear them as the nurse, but possibly. the Nurse Joker socks just look like plain black tube socks to me. Does anyone have any pics that can even come close to showing his legs and feet in that scene coming outta the hospital? He still wears the same shoes though from what I can tell.
He does seem like the kind of guy, but I have the actual Tabio socks, and after comparing them to some of the interrogation pictures, I can tell that the checkers would be stretched a lot higher if he were wearing sock suspenders. Believe me, I've put the socks on and stretched them to their complete length... and they looked NOTHING like the pictures. You kind of have to put the bottom foot parts on all the way, then gently pull up the length of the sock until they're just barely stretched fully.
I know that kind of sounded like incoherent nonsense, but trust me, it helps with SA.
i fixed the wig..this is my final makeup test, their are a few pointers to be changed but i think its looks pretty cool
the scars are made from liquid latex & tissue, their stuck to my face with spirt gum & a thin layer of liquid laex roudn the edges to seal them on my face, hurt like a ***** takign them off LMAO!!
i need more expression lines & i need to smudge the red a bit more i think :-)
Anyone hear any new news about the fabric arrival???
Dude...tone it down....It is not necessary for the large font and multiple posts
