Hallowe’en costume planning: 2 months is barely enough!
So Ms Jess and Duchess and I are thinking of doing a joint Hallowe’en costume: Harley Quinn, Poison Ivy, and the Joker. Jess is going to be an AWESOME dyke Harley, no lie, and Duchess, a natural blonde, assures me that she can go drop-dead red.
However, I have a lot of considerations for my costume, such as which Joker should I do? Cesar Romero? Jack Nicholson? Heath Ledger? Mark Hamill? I’m thinking Hamill’s Joker is most appropriate, since he’s the one in the middle of the Harley Quinn love triangle, but then again, Romero was My First Joker, so I gotta have respect.
Once I’ve decided on the characterisation, there’s the costume. I kinda really want the bitchin’ purple shoes above, but it’s not entirely clear to me what the Joker really wears on his feet. I seem to recall spats figure into it. Green shirt, or a green waistcoat and a loud-ass shirt in whatever loud-ass colours appear? As it happens, I already have a purple blazer, which is glittery, so that’ll work. Should I spring for a pair of purple pants, or just bang out some costume-style pyjama pants on the sewing machine? String tie, or huge floofy ascot? So many questions.
What do you think, Internets?
