As you know, for those who read the last blog, I was making a Dark Knight Joker costume.
Well thats been totally scrapped now as this halloween is going to be ruined by everyone wearing the same Joker costume. So just to be that little bit different I’m currently making a straitjacket similar to the Joker in the animated TV series ‘The Batman’. I just hope there are fans out there which will notice!
It’s nearly finished with a few personal touches of my own and also adjustments to the sleeves because of design issues. It’s challenging bringing an animated character to life given the limitations but it should be interesting to see once it’s all done, especially with the make up and hair.
My Harley Quinn costume is sorted as I mentioned in the last blog, all i need now is the mask. The original I got was too big so I cut it down to size to fit my face. So I’ll use that as a base, I’ve got some left over thin pvc I thought I’d put to good use and glue it to my face. I just recently bought some really strong prosthetic adhesive but slightly worried as the girl I bought it from said that I may need to wipe the excess off with surgical spirits…sounds like fun
I’ll put up some more pics up when its finished!
Experiment with hair. Results after backcombing and hairspray:
Tried the makeup today on Andy. Must say doesn’t look too bad he’s got the manic look down perfectly. Just can’t wait to see what he looks like in the costume too.
Probably would suit the crow makeup too. Will keep posted about more things we find.
This halloween 08 – i know it might be sad to some of you but i call it planning in advance, since purple suits are hard to get hold of for men – my boyfriend and I are going to be dressed as the terrible twosome
Joker and Harley Quinn
I’m sorted with my costume for Harley already and the makeup looks more or less easy. hmm red or black lipstick? …or combination of both?
I’ve been looking around and found that the Dark Knight Joker makeup looks awesome and stays more true to the actual joker character. Don’t get me wrong Jack Nicolson was good at the role but he looked like really camp. I don’t really know if my bf will suit the makeup i need to do a test run for it.
So tonight I practised doing the makeup with what I’ve got on myself to see if I could pull off the makeup.
I want this halloweens costumes to rock!!!
plus if you have any idea where we can get purple jacket/trousers for men then please let us know! Otherwise we’ll have to think of something else to do.
