Wanted to share the Joker costume I made for my little boy for his first ever fancy dress party! It was his friends 5th birthday and the theme was 'Superheroes'
well me being me and not wanting Morven to get lost in the sea of store bought, all in one, nylon Batman/Superman/Spiderman/Power Ranger......etc I took the theme and ran with it, I thought why not a superhero villain?? And what better villain than the Joker???
Obviously Morven has not seen 'The Dark Knight' and nor have any of the other kiddies at the party, so he has no idea how scary it could be, he just loved getting dressed up and having make-up done and helping a 5 year old Batman round up all the girls at the party
I made the jacket, a VERY altered Vegbee 'fairweather jacket', with a collar instead of a hood, no pockets, no belt, no panelling in the front... But still looked awesome, and only took 40 mins!!!!!! The waitcoat (aka Vest???) was completely winged, but very very simple, and looked the part! And of course I did hair and make-up! Morven absolutely loved that bit, and sat very still, holding a mirror watching everything I did, then even put up with me putting gunk in his hair for that mandatory greasiness!!! WAS SOOOOOOOOOO much fun!
To complete the outfit, a short sleeve shirt (models own, ) and a 99p pair of (girls!!!! ) purple skinnies from ebay! WOO
We had SO MANY comments on how cool/excellent/wicked/awesome etc Morven looked, and lots of people asking where I found such a cool costume, they were shocked I had made it! So we had a very happy/excited/hyper 4 year old and a very happy Mummy! (and an even happier Daddy as was in a pub garden!!!!! )
OK onto pics..... please excuse the crappy cell phone pics!
Why so serious???
Finished make up!
A final one just to prove he was happy-- just looks better looking sulky lol!
Would love to read any comments/criticisms or questions!
Thanks fo reading, Auri
