I know joker and his gang are pretty popular this year but as soon as i saw http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=130607.0 , I knew i could do it. I've never sewn any clothes before but i figured i have tights and tight shirts for the pattern so I figured a yard of black and a yard of red spandex should be all i need . So I made my patterns and had at it. I was surprised how well the hat turned out but since I figured I'm pasty enough to get away with it, I didn't paint my face white. The mask is craft foam heated over a burner till it was warm and pliable. I'm pretty proud of myself if I do say so myself!
