    Are those suspenders rimming the vest in the pics? Also I was thinking if possible I'd love to get a second shirt. One for the costume and one to wear here and there. Imagine going to a job interview or something in the Hex shirt!!! Looks classy and completly bizzare at the same time.

    Pinder91 posted this over on the RPF. It looks more accurate (from what i could tell less stray pixels and missing line segments.)

    I love #6 as well. I also think the color looks pretty darn good.

    Ok, so the pattern directly above me looks pretty darn good too. I would go with that one for sure...

    I would gladly pitch in a donation with my payment for the shirt material. I am glad to see a sense of family among us freaks...

    I really like Pinder91's and the pixels are so nice that I could easily update the color....I've been thinking pretty hard...The base fabric is obviously a light blue. I would really like to know what you guys are thinking because some are saying that the background is white! I'd like to get EVERYONE in agreement before I send a sample to the company...I want to be as professional as possible with all of this.

    I'm wondering all this because I know nothing of vector format and that is what nearly all fabric printers require. Maybe some nice friend could even do this and email it to me when we find a pattern to go with.

    Everytime i see the shirt in the movie it looks different to me. I dont know if its the material that changes color in different lighting or what. To me I've seen it as blueish green, light purple and even a very light blue. I also wouldn't mind donating part of my payment for the material or any extra labor in the shirt making. Pinder's sample above looks outstanding. Should real easy to replicate.

    I would go with a very light, light blue material with the pattern printed in that dark purple/blue over it. You don't want to deminish the wonderful designs in the hexagons, but I don't think that it is as simple as a white background...

    I would agree, Its not a white backgrounds its a light blue with a dark purplish blue on top. I think we should find the exact color of the base blue. Maybe find the color like you would a paint sample (don't work with fabric so not sure).

    Yah this is going to be as tough as decided the pattern was. Cause once again we couldn't pull the shirt off the set to look close enough. You have to think its some kind of airbrush layering or a special wash and dye or a mix of both. The shirt I made is a dye that's a little too dark of a purple its not nearly as atractive as a lighter blue or some kind of blue with a very very lite green tone. So my vote is with Sinister. More blue. Also that the size of the print isnt any smaller. You get too small and way too many hexs. Then it looks more like a golf shirt than a Villan's costume.

    those were printed onto WHITE FABRIC, it still appears to have a blue tint... if is lighting and photographic smear, im telling ya. A kid on superhero hype printed on a blue tinted fabric and it looks awful.

    Wow guys...I really don't know! I'm not saying SithCamaro's costume isn't good, but it isn't my favorite. I love his Sauron and Jack Sparrow stuff, but he did the Joker for the premiere and didn't have the resources we now have. His is amazing, but we have to judge from the movie and not another guy's costume. As of right now, I cannot rule out that it is a white background...i think that it is a light blue, but I may be wrong! The actual tie used in the movie is a greenish color, but on film appears yellow and brown!!! Lighting and cameras have a knack of skewing colors in fabrics.

    Sithcamaro's does look pretty good. Perhaps the print and design is what gives the white a slightly light purple/blue tone. I know when I try and print it onto paper it looks pretty close to the publicity photos. Kwally is right though about film lighting. As we all know, replicating a movie costume can be a nightmare for just that reason. I usually decide on a given photo from the film and stick with the given color scheme. By doing so, I typically get a costume that most people believe is what they saw in the movie it is from. I have been matching my color scheme for this Joker to the Empire Magazine shot, and so far it is looking really good.

    Here are my shoes and socks...



    By the way, anyone given any thought to the material used on the back of his vest. It looks like a satin that matches, in color, the pattern purple/blue from the shirt, but it has a strange dotted pinstripe in the lighter color of the shirt. There is a really good shot of the pinstripe pattern in Art of the Dark Knight, but I have not found anything yet that comes close...

    Dude, did you make those shoes??? If you didn't where did you get them?

    Kwally, his pattern is definitely off, but his color scheme is right. I know everyone WANTS the shirt to be a dark purple with blue patterns, but honestly, it isn't. It really doesn't match the pants and overcoat, it matches the blue-gray blazer and green vest more.

    Agreed. I'm not as interested in getting the "real" color correct. I want the color to "appear" the way it does in the film.

    For a standard mens XXL long sleeve collar shirt, you will need about 3 5/8 yard if the fabric is 44-45" wide, if the fabric is 60" wide, 2 3/4. Then you can add a yard for "just in case".

    Thanks for the wonderful comments on my shoes...



    For those interested. I modified a pair of ALDO brand shoes.
    I wear a size 6 and these are a size 8 to give them that turned up nose "Charlie Chaplin" clown/hobo look. The original color is a chocolate brown, smooth leather. the original shoes have no detail on them. First, I took high grit sand paper to them. This makes them more of a suede texture and lightens the color. Once I had the right texture and tone, I used spare scraps of brown leather that I had around to make the added on patches arond the sides and back. I used a leather hole punch to make the hole pattern and then I roughed them up with the sand paper to match the shoes. Before I glued them onto the shoe I put in a faux stitch just below the holes. Finally I used BARGS leather glue to attach them...

    I hope that helps anyone desperately trying to get the shoes done...

    Now how's about that pesky shirt???
