The Joker costume alternatives

If you haven’t watched Batman the Dark Knight, then you might not really understand what I am ready to write below… BUT, you need to go see this movie, because it will become easily a top 10 movie of all times and you don’t want to be the one who says “nope, never seen it…” i’ll save you some embarrassment!

Anyway, I did get the chance to go watch Batman the Dark Knight at an IMAX movie theater, and it was spectacular.

There has been a lot of buzz around Heath Ledger’s performance as The Joker and I was expecting to be impressed. Well, I got way more than that. Heath Ledger as The Joker was unreal, he mastered the character and his performance has blown me away like Jack Nicholson in The Shinning.

You might have probably noticed that The Joker and Batman costumes top the current list of most popular costume ideas… and that’s no surprise, The Joker character just went mainstream and children or adult just want to live in his skin for a few hours fun. And it’ll be a nice tribute to Heath Ledger for this Oscar level performance, that’s really nice.

but, what about trying not to wear the same Joker costume everybody else will wear? Hmm, wondering what other disguises you could use?

There are several scenes during the movie when The Joker is actually not fully dressed as The Joker, as we all know him:

Joker – the cop costume

You can find cop costumes here, and just wear some Joker makeup to replicate the scars…

Joker – the nurse costume

One of the funniest scenes of the movie is The Joker wearing a nurse outfit…

So what do you need?

a nurse costume to start with,

a red hair or orange wig,

the Joker makeup,

and a nurse hat.

I can hear you from here…you wonder, how you’re end up looking…well maybe like that!
