    Hello all, I was hoping that some could shed light with your knowledge.

    So I would like to work on making the same outfit that The Joker from The Dark Knight wears.

    So I will be stopping over at a local thrift store in search for a dark green vest which shouldnt be too bad to find. And while im there hopefully get those killer socks [​IMG]

    So I was wondering if anyone had any recommendations on where to get his collard shirt. Among with some of the other pieces of clothing, heh.

    Here's some pics:

    I would like to get something as close as I can to these items and I dont know if I'll really be able to find a hexagonal blue collard shirt by just random shopping.

    I like it too. I think you'd have to try and source the fabric (who knows from where) and have it done MTM though.

    What colour are those socks? I like the large polka dots or whatever they're supposed to be but a blue-olive or black-olive (how it looks to my eye) seem a little muted. But then I suppose the whole outfit is rather dark.

    And yes, the occassion is Halloween. I would like to have a costume that i can have for years to come. I believe the socks are a dark green with a tan checkard pattern. But id have to go through the trailer really slow again to find out.

    Any ideas on where to get the fabric for the shirt? Or a shirt of simmilar color/pattern?

    I though the OP was really going to wear that seriously. It isn't far-fetch since there was a thread asking about where to buy his shoes.

    I have obtained a vest! Or at least a vest in progress. I have both a real vest, and i went out and bought a blazer from a local store that will work great if i get rid of the sleeves. Now, if i could learn to use a sewing machine... haha. Still looking for a shirt of the same color, so ill go to a few more shops next week, and also find purple pants. did someone say there was a link to a pair of pants similar to these?

    I know this is a toy but it should help you on completing the look, this a look you probably won't see until the movie comes out.

    I have created a replica design of the hexagonal print from the Joker's shirt.
    I have it in a jpeg format at hi-res.

    It could be used to print on iron-on paper, or it can be screen-printed onto fabric (which is how we'll be using it...on lavender-grey cotton shirting fabric).

    Interested in having a peek?
