Female Joker costume ideas?

PICTURES SO FAR: http://s90.photobucket.com/albums/k2...airy/FemJoker/

I've been thinking about what I could wear for Halloween this year, and it hit me - female Joker. I'm positively thrilled by the thought, and I've got some ideas. I'm gonna keep the main details the same. Green wig, makeup, purple suit jacket, green vest, etc etc.

Any other ideas, tips, and reference pics you could throw out there would be wonderful. :] The more I get into this costume, the more I lean towards an older, comic book Joker. I will be including orange in my costume as well, something TDK Joker doesn't have.

Update~! My jacket and skirt are both completely finished. I'm going over to JoAnn's to get some orange ribbon for a necktie, as well as (maybe) trim along the bottom of the sleeves and the skirt. My mom has found some cheap TDK Joker socks [here,] but they're not knee high, so I'll probably still paint the ones I have.

My skirt ended up being a pencil skirt, which I like, as it looks like a women's suit. I'll be turning a green tank top into a front-laced corset, rather than a vest, for some flare. I'm getting a forest green short bob wig with bangs that should be really cute. :3 I also bought some adorable women's dress shoes at the thrift store that are PERFECT.

I've gotten ALL my supplies from either Ross, the thrift store, and the dollar store. I doubt I have more than $20 within this entire costume so far, and it's almost finished.

well im assuming you are going female Dark Knight joker right?

if so make sure those tights look a little off in color (id suggest a real ugly washed out green color) probably with some random holes ripped into them or something. since the joker was a little bit mental lol i dont think his female counterpart would have nice looking tights and if not holes atleast dirty. The jokers suit never looked very clean throughout the movie except for the bank scene i guess. other than that i dunno.

For tights, I'd say try to find some striped ones.
Purple & green stripes would look awesome. o3o

Yes yes, that's exactly what I was thinking. I was absolutely in awe with the Dark Knight's Joker, so that's what I was going for~ Thank you! :3

uhh sure... i dunno it helped remind to post these pics for you so i guess it ok :P

i dunno if i like all of this costume but she definately did a pretty good job... although i think it would fit in more with the dark knight if you used an ugly light grenn tights instead of the stripes... i think it makes it look to much like a clown or something from a circus. i understand the joker was sort of like a clown but his costume never made me think to myself "CLOWN!" when i saw him lol ya know what i mean??

Pic 1
Pic 2
Pic 3

P.S. if you post a pic of yourself like the third pic can you make sure you are in better shape than this chick please? lol first time i saw it i thought it was a weird dude... lol

EDIT: i do think she did an awesome job on her makeup though...

WOW! She looks fantastic!
I'm planning to *possibly* make a Joker outfit for halloween, but will probably go for the manly Joker, so sorry can't help you. ^^ Good luck though!

Yes please no stripes in the tights. Although doesnt he wear striped trouser sock? Oh well try not to look to circus-y. Dont forget if you are going for a femme style. Emphasize it!

he wears like a strange checker patern sock but it isnt a main part of the costume... meaning you hardly every see them.

EDIT: actually if you made a pair of tights that looked like his socks and then had a skirt that was the same color (main color and stripes) as his pants that would probably be pretty cool. and then do the same as him up top or female variations of the same stuff w/ same patterns and colors.

PIC OF HIS SOCKS!!

EDIT AGAIN: ok on second thought im not sure if it would look that great to the average person who doesnt know that what his socks look like... but to anyone who knew thats the pattern on his socks, they would atleast think it looked really cool :P lol

Oh wow. I am dying to find socks like that now. Thanks so much for all the pics!! I'm definitely getting inspired, now.

Valorman - Yeah, I love Harley Quinn, but.. I don't quite have the body for a full unitard. xD And besides, the Joker is my one true love. <3

Strider - You should make a thread posting all those ref pics. :] There are gonna be a ton of Joker cosplayers this year, and I'm sure they'd be helpful.

If you're good at sewing/knitting maybe you could make them yourself? =) I've no idea how you make socks, but google will know! (By the way, has anyone come across a Joker knife that isn't real? And for sale? Desperately trying to find one, any help appreciated.)
