Costume Help?!

ok, last year i did a kind of two-face/burnt look and for this halloween i've planned to dress up as The Joker from the new batman film. i just have little to no money. i can do the face/hair with no trouble. its just the rest of it, purple trousers, blue hexagon pattern shirt, green waistcoat and purple suit jacket. how can i do these on the cheap and make it look better then those naff costumes they try to sell online for £30+ any help or links appreciated.

wow .... that's really good Ace!

Have you tried the charity shops ? probably get all the clothes you need there xx

eek, scared me :-(
well done tho

id say the same as snow, charity shops.. think dying stuff might be too much hassle..altho the process can be easy.

That's impressive!!!

yep charity shops is the only way forward....

im sure it doesnt have to be exact though..as long as u get the face right u dont have to get it perfect to the last detail

thats what i thought, dont want screen accurate just a close enough aproximation so people can see and recognise.

charity shop is a damned good idea, didnt think of that. anything else?

o and that took me just shy of 4 hours to do to my face last year. all latex. couldnt see out of 1 eye all night and my ear was sore. was worth it though

Try and get in touch with prince i heard he likes purple :whistling: sorry couldnt resist charity shop is a good idea but dont think you will come across a purple suit and if you did what would be the chances of it been your size. Have you thought about hiring one from fancy dress shop! or try what i'm going to do for my stag do go as the joker but do the scene when hes dressed up as a nurse... will surley turn heads and give people a laugh and lot easyier to get your hands on a nurses dress.. Hope this helps???/

already planned to do the nurse outfit. problem is im working on the door that night and the manager of the venue thinks it will look unprofessional. i just think he doesnt want me to show him up when he's dressed as ali g (saddo)
went to the fancy dress shop local to me and they dont have 1, and the 1 they could order in from the net is the 1 i found myself multiple times and is awful!

try freecycle
