There are various incarnations of this crazy clown, from the old school 1960s TV show to Heath Ledger’s take in The Dark Knight. You’ll want to ensure that you pick one look and never mix themes, such as wear a Heath Ledger Joker type mask/makeup with the old school outfit. It will look weird and just won’t get the great reaction that it should if you do it right.
Looking for Great Joker Costume Ideas? Check these out!
The Joker is one of the greatest villains of all time – so if you show up with a shitty costume, everyone will know and will talk behind your back about how you blew it.
Suicide Squad presents an interesting new take on this classic villain, complete with a new look. This is a great opportunity to piece together a new costume that showcases a sleek purple jacket and Joker Suicide Squad tattoos. This outfit is spectacular and will certainly complement a gorgeous young lady that dresses up as Harley Quinn.
If you have a girlfriend or wife, you should without question force them to wear a Harley Quinn costume. This is one of the greatest supervillain pairings but you both better go all out if you want to avoid being the laughing stock of the party. You’re the one that’s supposed to be doing the maniacal cackling, so make sure to nail it the first time.
If one of your friends decides to go as Batman, you have to outdo their costume or match the theme to get maximum effect. If he goes old-school Batman, you should go old-school Joker and do it better than him so that you can talk trash. If he has a Robin with him, you better have a Harley Quinn, Poison Ivy, or Catwoman to really stick it to him.
At the end of the day, either spend the money or put the effort in if you want to laugh your way to the top prize. Those of you who are planning on doing the cosplay look will want to run by the same principles – either go all out or don’t do it at all. If you show up to Comic-Con dressed like a dope that looks nothing like The Joker and more like a damn circus clown, you deserve to get laughed at. If you’re planning on bringing a female accomplice then you both better take the time to dress her up or you will have wasted a great opportunity to make a statement.
All it takes is one person to show up as a better Joker for your whole day to blow up. This is a competition. If you have to plan your attack for weeks or month in advance then you should do so. Take the time to find and piece together the right accessories like gloves, a belt, a cane, oversized gun, water-squirting flower, hand buzzer, and whatever else you can track down.
What are you going to be remembered for – making people laugh, or getting laughed at? You decide.
