So. I made this for one of my friends for... Christmas. But not last Christmas. The Christmas before that. The Dark Knight had not come out yet and, like I'm sure everyone was, we were SO excited for it to be released! Batman is the best. All I did was take a regular Mr. Potato Head and paint different pieces. His face white, his eyes black, his hands purple, shoes black, etc. I also made him a purple coat and a black bowtie out of felt. His hair was the tricky part. I used a massacred potato head ball cap as a sort of scalp, through which I pushed pieces of neon-green... I don't remember what it's called, but that plasticky string that little kids make bracelets and keychains out of. I remember not being a huge fan of the hair when it was done, but I think it looks ok. The plastic, rather than yarn or something, seemed to fit in better with the other potato head pieces. Finally, I filled his innards with little toy machine guns, and I glued one to his hand. I decorated the box too, with joker cards, and lots of red-paint-blood. Drips and fingerprints and things. Then I spelled out "The Joker" and "To ----- From -----" with magazine letters, like in a ransom note. It turned out really cute. He's more cartoony than Heath Ledger's Joker, but it's hard to make Mr. Potato Head look scary. And my friend really liked it which made me super-happy.

Sorry that this is the only picture. I'm pretty sure that I took some from multiple angles as I was making it, but my old computer recently crashed and I lost a lot of stuff. I had to steal this from my friend's Facebook page. Thanks for looking!

Thanks! Yes, I think it's nylon. Honestly, I forgot what it is called. That flat plastic string that comes on spools? You can make bracelets and things out of it?
