If superheroes are not your type, why not dress
up as a villain instead? There are lots of villains with great outfits to
choose from. If sinister characters are your thing, then try dressing up as the
Joker. Batman’s arch-nemesis is as bad as they come, and if you don’t mind
putting heavy makeup on your face and look psychotic, then this costume is for
you. Choose the Heath Ledger version for a more deranged look.
Things you will need:
- Purple business suit
- Green vest
- Green printed tie
- Black dress shoes
- Purple, long-sleeved printed shirt
- Black leather gloves
- Green hair coloring
- White face paint
- Brown eyeshadow
- Black eyeliner
- Black cream makeup or charcoal
- Red lipstick
- Elmer’s Glue
Step 1: Put on the purple, long-sleeved printed shirt,
purple business suit, green vest and green printed tie. You should look dapper
and deranged at the same time. Complete the outfit with black dress shoes. If
you can actually get purple dress shoes, better.
Step 2: The Joker’s hair is as crazy as the rest of
him. You should dye your hair temporarily with spray-on green dye which you can
wash off when you take a shower. While still wet, comb it to one side of your
head and let it dry that way. You can apply a little gel or hair spray if
you’re having difficulties maintaining your hair in that position. The hair
should look messy.
Step 3: Now that you’re done with the clothes, it’s
time for you to put on some crazy-looking makeup. Put white makeup all over
your face. You don’t have to worry about spreading it evenly, since the Joker’s
makeup should look as if it was applied by some crazy individual, which is
certainly the point.
Step 4: Get the Joker’s crazed eyes by putting black
makeup around your eye area. Creamy black makeup will work best for this one
since you will need to smudge it heavily around the eyes for that creepy,
hallowed appearance. If you happen to have charcoal left from your last
barbecue, it will also work.
Step 5: Furrow your brows and use the brown eyeshadow
to trace the creases in your forehead.
Step 6: The Joker’s trademark is that nasty, clown-like,
lunatic smile on his face. This you can achieve by putting on red lipstick then
extending it towards the corners of your mouth, reaching your cheeks. Smudge it
a bit for that crazy clown look.
Step 7: Put some fake scars on your heavily made-up
face by putting some Elmer’s Glue around your mouth. Make sure that your skin
is not allergic to glue and don’t apply it too close to your mouth. While
waiting for the glue to dry, move your mouth and twitch your face to stretch
the “scars”. This will result to flaky spots that look like dead skin.
Step 8: Put on your black leather gloves and you’re
ready to go. If you have a long, purple coat, better.
And don't forget, Star Costumes has tons of great
costumes if you want to go as someone else.ngne yourself using easurements, then you can of the same style.
