This Joker Halloween costume was originally intended for a student film, however since Halloween was around the corner we decided, “why not use it for a Halloween costume as well!?”

My friends and I were and still are such great fans of the late Heath Ledger's performance as the "Joker" that it inspired us to make a costume for both our student film and Halloween. We printed out and researched many, many reference photos that have been circulating through the internet in order to make the costume a near replica of Heath's "Joker". We then hired my mother -a very talented seamstress- to construct the outfit.

After much searching through tons and tons of fabrics we finally found the right material and color in Los Angeles of course; which was a bit of a drive, but well worth it considering how the quality of the outfit came out to be. The most challenging fabric to find was the purple wool for the long coat; boy, that was a pain!

The construction of the costume took at least two weeks, but our seamstress did a fantastic job!
Not only was it a great experience for my friends and I, but it was also a lot of fun! We had a great Halloween this year as they dressed up as the Joker's goons!

To make the Joker Halloween costume (the Jack Nicholson version)I had to find a light coloured jacket to fit a 7 year old as I do not sew. This was no easy task as I did not want to spend a lot of money. I searched everywhere and finally found one in a charity shop.

I took the jacket and a beige pair of trousers that my son already owned and dyed them purple. I then found an orange t-shirt, you should really use an orange shirt but I could not find one and did not want to dye one as it had to be cheap and the dye is expensive.

I sprayed my son's hair green and used white face paint for the whole of his face and then drew on the lips with a red lip pencil. He did have a green neck tie which I made out of material but we forgot to put it on for the picture. The joker does sometimes wear a hat but I did not bother with that as I wanted the green hair to be on show.

The whole outfit cost about $10 including face paint and took about 2 hours but that was because I had to dye the clothes.

I got most of the Girl Joker Halloween costume parts at Goodwill. Painted her hair green, her face white with the joker's twisted smile, and even included a flower that sprays water.

She had chattering teeth too! She wore a purple jacket and a purple and black skirt. Everyone out trick or treating loved it!
