Oh, dogman, how satisfying it is to see your costume in all it's glory after seeing the pieces come together.

YOU ROCK!!!

Congratulations on a job well done. Excellent work!!

Midnight Release

Hey guys, i pre ordered The Dark Knight (yes i accept it; i'm a geek :D) and i have been thinking about going to the midnight release on Dec. 8.
I have no idea when i'll be able to show up, how long i'll be there or what sort of people will be there, but i do know from when i pre ordered that at least 100 people should show up.

now my question is, as i have never been to a midnight release, whether or not to show up in costume, mostly for my own amusement.
i have no idea what the reaction is likely to be, or if anyone else will dress up.
to give you an idea of dressing up for things like this, i only saw one guy dressed for the movie at the theater and i heard of a small group (4-6 people) dressed for the midnight show.


so what do you think, if i go to the midnight release, should i wear my full Joker costume, makeup and everything? or maybe just the clothes?

I was at the midnight release of the 7th Harry Potter book and people of all ages were dressed up. If it makes you happy and don't care what others think go for it! Either way it'll be fun. Especially if you think there's going to be a crowd there.

The pics look great! Looks like the kids were having fun with you. If you want to go to the midnight show in full makeup, go for it! I think between Rocky Horror, Star Wars, Star Trek, Harry Potter and Pirates of the Carribean..........people are used to seeing fans dress us in theaters!!

Its not a midnight show, just a DVD release.

and kids did enjoy it but with a level of fear and mild confusion. :)
a lot of them looked at me like i was going to hurt them....i felt kinda bad about it...

I have dressed up for HP book release parties and midnight shows of HP movie releases, and there were plenty of people dressed up. But I don't do it for them, I do it for my own amusement. More than half the fun is watching everybody watching me, LOL!

My daughter and I just got Scarecrow fangs and are going to wear them to the midnight show of Twilight.

Do it for you, if it feels good. If not, don't. If I had an awesome Joker costume like you have I'd be wearing it every chance I got!!!

It looks like you got The Joker Heritage Collection costume from Rubie's. That's first class, well made costume. One of the best sellers this year........oh wait a minute Rubie's dropped the ball and didn't forecast the demand for this costume and didn't have enough for the public to buy.
Anyway, you look killer and I'm sure you played it up too.

coat and vest are hand made, everything else was found in thrift stores or on ebay :)

as for the demand for the costume, while it was said to be a big deal, i saw one other joker....all the hype and nothing but disappointment....

i tried to play it up but the lil batmans wouldnt play along......too scared.....
but i had fun none the less :D

thanks for the kudos everyone ;)

wow, great job! your make-up looks dead on! what did you use fro the scars on your cheeks?
and hell yes you should dress up for the release! i always get a kick out of seeing peps dress up for stuff like that. Especially when someone goes that extra mile to really do it well like you did....

made the scars myself out of silicone. glued em down with spirit gum, had to reapply in little spots and completely once (had to eat, they wouldnt stay on)

i'll post pics when my camera is recharged ^__^

as for dressing up i dont know if i will go to midnight release but if i do i think i will just wear the clothes and not the makeup. we'll see ;)
