Ask anybody why they loved The Dark Knight so much, and you'll always always get the same answer. Heath Ledger's portrayal of The Joker was absolutely amazing. It was like nothing else. Coming off this amazing performance, it's no surprise that Batman's Joker costumes became much more popular. Most people were at least aware of the Batman villain, but Christopher Nolan's film really brought the character to the forefront of people's minds. The villain is terrifying, and has a very interesting look. This will ensure that you have a costume that is both recognizable and enjoyable.
With a purple suit and some makeup, you'll look just like the creepy Joker. We've got the suit, gloves, makeup kits, and wigs to capture his creepy hairstyle, so you'll have the best costume ever. Jack Nicholson played the Joker in the original Batman movie, and while his performance was brilliant, Nolan went for a considerably darker take on the character, which people responded to very positively. Heath Ledger's joker may require a little bit more work for the costume, but it will be totally worth it when you get to your Halloween party and people freak out.
Watch out for Batman! If somebody at your party is dressed as Christian Bale's Batman, you better be careful. He knows you killed his ex-girlfriend, and he's less than thrilled about it. If you can get friends to dress as other Batman villains though, you'll have a great group costume.
