The Clown Prince of Crime!
Here's something I never thought I would see myself doing... as a massive BATMAN fan I never thought I would see myself working on anything other than a BAT suit, but I wanted to do something a bit different and put my sewing skills to work creating another costume. So, what better than to work on BATs greatest foe.... the Joker!
Like the BATMAN uniform I didn't want to do anything other than something from the Comics, rather than the films.. as I'm not a fan of many of the BATMAN films, except for (and I know I'm in the minority!) the current BATfleck. so I searched for an image of 'The Clown Prince of Crime' to use as my inspiration.
An AWESOME image I found of 'Joker'.
I took a trip to a material shop and found three perfect materials, found a pattern that was actually a DC Comics pattern all be it based on the Cesar Romero's Jokers costume... so I decided to use this but alter it to what I wanted.
My idea is to be as faithful as I can, but with a bit of a 'twist'... for instance I want to put green lining in the jacket and to use the same colour lining to accent things like the trouser pockets. Well that's my idea, but let's see how things go.

Keep watching for the 'Journey'!
