Joker costume

Mar. 26, 2008by: Ben Barna
I cant help but think the following pictures of Joker merchandise from THE DARK KNIGHT is ruining the mystique and darkness of the character that was so painstakingly crafted by the films viral marketing campaign. To see his menacing visage mass marketed for the kiddies to go around collecting candy in six months is too bad. The reason Im posting this is because still, any Joker story is a cool story, but is there anyone out there that doesnt agree with me? I have faith that Ledgers performance will render these get-ups irrelevant, but right now, its not jiving with me. The photos were snapped at the HCP Show (Halloween, Costume, Party) in Vegas and if youd like to see more, click on the picture. Warning: there is a Two-Face related spoiler on the page, but you can only see it if you highlight. So be strong.

Extra Tidbit: I'm beating James Thoo 23 to 20 in DARK KNIGHT stories. Probably.

I hate this shit

None of these kinds of masks ever look cool. You ever try on a Freddy or Michael Myers mask?! Holy shit they look stupid! They usually smell like the fat sweaty kid that tried them on five seconds before you did.

It makes sense

I'd figured that about the spoiler I mean it makes sense.

the same...

I totally agree with NuclearMisfit ! The clown masks look really cool, but the Joker mask looks terrible. They're destroying the essence of the character !

Extra Tidbit:P : My make-up is cooler :D

I think the clown thug masks look really cool, too bad I cant say the same for Mr J. It almost reminds me of the Bride of Chucky masks and dolls that make Chucky look like he has Graves disease.

Im looking forward to seeing the remaining flicks but honestly the merchandise is starting to make it feel cheap.

...I thought the point of a mask to to make you something you aren't or to give you insane features that are completely inhuman.

Everybody has a face. Makeup is not hard to get. The should have just made Joker wigs.

And the Two Face news isn't really a spoiler. They said this was going to be like Long Halloween and his part in that, though important, was not very large.
