Coolest Homemade Joker Halloween Costume 26

Homemade Joker Halloween Costume

This Homemade Joker Halloween Costume was pretty easy to put together. I found all of the clothing items (blouse, green vest, purple jacket, tie) at the local Goodwill. I wore a pair of old blue jeans. I scrunched my hair a little bit and sprayed it with temporary green hair coloring.

For the face, I looked a picture up online to see what the makeup looked like. I then used white face paint (no special kind) to cover my entire face, except my smile area and around the eyes. I then used the black paint to cover the eye area, including the eyelids. The paint closest to the eye is dark black, and as it gets farther away from the eye I tried to mix it with the white to create a grayish color.

For the mouth, I simply used the red paint to make a smile across my face. After a while, the red paint on my lips started to burn but I got used to it eventually. I wore a pair of brown shoes with the outfit. The face paint came off fairly easy; just be careful when scrubbing around the eye area.

I wore this costume to my college's Halloween dance and everyone loved it!

Homemade Joker and Mime Costumes

I decided to dress up as the Joker from Batman the Dark Knight and my boyfriend as a mime. The Joker is my all time favorite villain. For the Joker costume, I used green hair dye, red, white, and black face paint, and old clothes. The old clothes I used were purple slacks, a purple suit jacket, blue shirt, green tie, green vest, and purple gloves. I also added an old cane to give it a little more character.

I had already done these Homemade Joker and Mime Costumes for homecoming the previous year, so I was able to do it again and improve upon it. Most of the clothes came from Goodwill, my own closet, or my mom's closet. I even waited until after Halloween to get my hair cut so that it'd be the proper length.

For the mime costume, we used clothes (black pants, black shirt, white gloves), black and white face paint, and a beret. While I was painting my boyfriend's face, he was complaining about how feminine he felt (he was wearing makeup and my mom's black shirt). It was funny.

Total spent was about $20 for both costumes.

Homemade Joker and Harley Quinn (Arkham Asylum) Costume

Two classic villains with a new spin. The Joker and Harley Quinn have been around for a long time and there have been several versions of each. I think the classic green-haired, clown-painted-faced joker is the best, but to be the Harley Quinn to that joker would have involved wearing a full body spandex suit and a jester hat. I don’t know about you, but the idea of that did not thrill me.

I did some research and found a much more figure flattering idea for the role of Harley Quinn (from the video-game: Batman Arkham Asylum). Both of the costumes were made from pieces found at thrift stores. We dyed an old oversized suit purple and re-formed it into the correct shape for the Joker.

For Harley Quinn, we sewed colored satin around existing pieces to make it the right shape and made boot covers out of the same material using larger pieces of iron-on binding material to make them stiff enough to stay up by themselves. To finish it off we used cheap face make-up kits and spray hair dye.

Homemade Joker Costume

I made this homemade Joker costume for a friend's birthday. It was pretty simple, I got together the clothing from various shops and used my brother's waistcoat. I used white makeup to create the base and used eyeliner to create the eyes. For the scars I used molding prosthetics found at my local costume/joke shop and used red lipstick for the lips. And in my pocket - a simple joker card from a deck of cards.
