    Re: Joker Hexagon Fabric Print Interest

    Iam I seeing this pattern correctly?. It looks to me that the squares are not all the same size. Granted, it could just be an illusion, but it does give the design more character.

    Haha, I love the one of Joker jumping over Batman.

    I think it might be the way they printed it and the fabric used. I'm thinking they might have used a white fabric as a base, but the patterns on the shirt are so tiny and condensed, it might have bled through slightly to what little bit the base fabric actually shows through. I'm not a fabric printing expert, so I'm not sure if that's possible, but right now I'm inclined to think that.

    The square pattern I think is just an optical illusion of sorts. They all look the same size to me, but where the fabric folds away from the camera, they look smaller.

    I think I am seeing the hex from two different angles that is making it appear to be two different patterns.

    I found this gem at Sears today! Thanks for whoever it was to push me in the right direction. I looked for a button down shirt and vest as well at the thrift stores, and all I could find for vests was ONE white vest from The Coat Factory, but it didn't have a collar on it.

    The Tie looks ALOT more greener and close in person. -

    Re: Joker Hexagon Fabric Print Interest

    Guys, I know you want this asap, but I'm REALLY trying to get it done! The problem is communication. I'm waiting for the vice preisdent to call me back. I've been emailing him through his personal email address, but we need to physically talk to get everything finalized. It took over five days to get him to return some of my emails. He then asked me to reply with my phone number. The only problem was I was gone last week and have a week left to get my iphone 3g...darn! Soooo, I just forwarded my girlfriend's phone number to him on Saturday (I even changed her answering machine saying it was me!). I asked him to call asap around noon so I could be sure to be by the phone. I'm working really really hard to get this done for you guys because I REALLY REALLY want it too.

    As far as Halloween goes....production time is around 2-3 weeks. I can get it cut and sent within days of getting it. If everything works out the way I want, you should have a couple weeks to make or have it made. Hope this calms some nerves. If worse comes to worse and there isn't enough time for Halloween, I'm guessing that most will still be interested. I'm going as Boba for Halloween, but I still want a full Joker mannequin. I'm actually starting a Heath Ledger scuplt as the Joker for the mannequin head. I've seen that most sculpts have really deep wrinkles which makes him look like an old grandma...I plan to correct that!

    Re: Joker Hexagon Fabric Print Interest

    Awsome, glad to hear well have a few weeks to work on them. I think we may end up tackling the vest next anyway. But does anyone have any good patterns for the button down shirt or vest in the first place? I found some women's vest patterns in Mcalls,etc. books, but couldn't find anything for men's button down shirts.

    Well, boys! I just got Pinder's latest pattern, and it is ready to print!! I really really think this is the one! The cirle pattern with the little triangle IS in Pinder's pattern. You just have to look closely because the triangles are at a 45 degree angle. IT IS THERE!! Let's here what you think.

    Re: Joker Hexagon Fabric Print Interest

    Ok guys...I think it is time to start tackling a big part of this run...getting everyone's order. Just pm me with the exact amount of fabric you need. NO FRACTIONS OF A YARD!!! If you need 3 1/2 yds...you order 4yds...I really need to get a solid (no longer rough) estimate of what I'm looking at. My initial estimates were around 400 yds...but I think that has gone up a tad...just do this asap! THANKS!

    The new Pinder pattern in #213 looks like the one Kwally!

    I will need 5 yards of material.

    My shirt pattern Simplicity #7030, says a medium shirt would need 3 yards.

    And anyone in need of a vest pattern look for Simplicity #4762, you can use the "D" pattern.

    Hope that helps...

    Depends on your size? I'm 5'5" and to have my Fett jumpsuit made, I went with 4 yards of material, more than enough.

    Again pending price, I'm good with 4 yards. I have a bud that needs some so he's in with me.

    Thanks.

    Stay safe,

    Tim.

    What type of fabric was the general vote. I figured a lightweight 100% cotton, but others said something different. Any ideas guys??

    Re: Joker Hexagon Fabric Print Interest

    I agree with GHOSTSOLDIER, when you look at the jokers shirt in the pics he posted, the shirt has a "darker" feel to it then white. I think the pattern we are talking about using came out is great, but would look bad on white. There is too much "open area" in the hexigons for the white to show through. It would look like you printed it on a white shirt, unlike the pics of the joker where it looks like the design was printed on a slightly darker than whtie fabric. I would strongly urge if nothing else use a very light blue or purple, just so the shirt doesn't appear white. Because in the end, it only matters how the shirt comes out from the printer, and I would like mine to look like the jokers in the pictures posted of him!


    Simplicity 2895 for the vest and overcoat- only need slight modifications to be screen accurate.

    Make sure those colors match kwally! remember, get the right mix of navy and deep purple. More toward the navy side... remember to compare it to the coat in the images i posted.

    Once again, I applaud everyone's effort, enthusiasm, and input... we could run a business, lol.

    Re: Joker Hexagon Fabric Print Interest

    I'll send a PM in a second with my yardage.

    Also lucked out and found a purple trench coat that fits me. I'm just hoping I can get the thing to dye a bit darker.



    Now I need to head out to Sears, because that tie looks great!
