My family will be The Joker, Batman, and Harley Quinn this coming Halloween. I'll be The Joker, My wife Harley Quinn, and my daughter Batman. We are going to make as much of the costumes as possible, it's more fun that way and sometimes much cheaper! I feel I have a good handle on my costume...Buy a coat at Goodwill, alter it so it has tails, dye it, etc. I'm aiming for a Cesar Romero kind of thing. Heath Ledger's Joker was the best but EVERYONE is going to be "that" Joker. Our daughter's should not be a problem. My wife is struggling though. She has a great idea for making the mallet ( spray foam insulation sprayed into a tube made from poster board for the mallet head and a cardboard poster tube for the handle). The rest of the costume is the sticker though. So far the idea is ponytails, one red- she has long dark hair- instead of jester's hat. She was thinking of buying light colored pants and dyeing them red and black but we thought the process would be messy the dyes would all bleed together. Buying a plus sized outfit is out, we just don't have that kind of cash. So, does anyone have any suggestions?
